    I have been working at Gordmans full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is experiencing incredible growth. When many companies fail to support their fast growth, Gordmans has taken great steps toward making sure the growth is careful and controlled. They have hired executives from competitors to bring a wide range of experience and expertise.

    Cons

    When compared to other retailers, I would rate Gordmans at the lower end of the pay scale. If they want quality managers to stay, they will need to develop a better compensation package. They offer no stock ownership, which in a period of growth would be a valuable offering and incentive to managers.

    I have been working at Gordmans

    Pros

    Great Hours: im part-time and im getting almost 40 hours a week, great management very easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Pay is poor, i've worked there 2 years seasonal, and now 2 years part-time only got one raise and im one of the better employees that works there. not firing people who need to get fired cause they dont do any work or they dont show up multiple times let the mangers fire when need and not have to contact corporate before they can fire, or get 3 write ups.

    I have been working at Gordmans part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employee discount. It can be a fun place to work when you are not short handed. Everyone seems to get along really well.

    Cons

    Hours are constantly being cut; employees are leaving because it is so stressful to work there. There is no reason we should be at the store until midnight on the weekends. The schedule only comes out 4-5 days in advance making it very stressful to have to work around another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what is going on at each of your stores. Hours keep getting cut and we are constantly short staffed because our payroll is "limited". There is no way that we are not reaching our goals when we are constantly busy and a lot of times the #1 store in the company. The schedules need to be done at least 2 weeks in advance and not 4-5 days.

    I have been working at Gordmans part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Able to move up in positions, Good raise opportunities

    Cons

    Some managers seem to create very confusing schedules, hours are cut dramatically after the holidays. I went from 35+ to 5 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to care about employees more, to give more than a 2 or 3 hour shift. If someone is obviously doing an outstanding job and going above & beyond, they should receive some sort of praise for that.
