Stores were fun, satisfying work.

I worked at Gottschalks

ProsExcellent associates and managers within the store. Local store was able to be creative with merchandising and display set up.

ConsNo support from corporate. Too many mistakes and last minute ad changes. Often shipped us what they thought we should sell, not what the customer wanted, even when we had explained our customers needs.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo late now. The company is out of business. Overall, it was a very nice company to work for the past nine years. district manager level was receptive and good to work with.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
