I have been working at Gordmans full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Set scheduled and regular days off.

Cons

Poor pay, no training standards, ware house is a nitemare for harassment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not believe what they say they will not follow through. HR is dishonest and you will not get any promotion or pay increase during your first 90 days despite whatever they say.

    Pros

    20 percent discount on merchandise that is already pretty cheap, some of the employees are very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Where to even start. When I first got this job I was excited, but that changed after a couple of weeks. First of all the only thing I was trained to do was the register, none of the managers bothered to show me what else I was going to be doing (recovery, go backs, how to sign up a guest for a credit card). I felt like the other sales associates were way more helpful, they actually showed me how to do the things I needed to do. Um isn't that what the managers should be doing? Most of the people here can be really nice and friendly, but some not so much.. A lot of the time I feel like I get attitude from certain people and talked down to. I know I'm not the only one that feels this way because other employees have asked me if I noticed the attitude problems these people have. Not to mention I have to pick up others slack which is frustrating when I already have a million other things to do. My biggest complaint is the scheduling, there is no work-life balance AT ALL. I feel like some people (including me) get taken advantage of when they schedule us to close then start early the next day. Even on my days off I'll get called in. When is there time for myself? When I finally do get a day off I'm too tired to do anything. Unless you want to get taken advantage of for low pay I wouldn't recommend this job, I'm just sticking it out till I find a new one. I only gave this review two stars because of the discount.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually train your employees beyond how to use the register so they know what they're doing, and don't be so obvious with your favoritism.

    I worked at Gordmans part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starting pay higher than minimum wage, for some...

    Cons

    scheduling (your shift may say it will end at 9 pm but you may really be there until midnight), management does not care about employees and neither do the higher ups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make your employees do the job of two other people just because you want to put more money in your pockets by making stores understaffed all the time
