    Pros

    It is a great place to showcase your skills, whether your communication, or your social skills or if you become full time, your merchandising skills. The company is pretty enthusiastic to let you use your merchandising and design skills to make displays, and set the merchandise out in the sales floor. Great low-key major retail chain!

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be understaffed. The rude customers will ruin the enjoyment of working there. Its usually the stuck up, entitled mom with an attitude, and her horribly behaved kids running around the store tearing up the toy department.

    Pros

    The Management is great at working with your schedule!

    Cons

    Seasonal Position sucks, they just need to hire part-time and do away with seasonal. Never really sure about hours until the week of.

    I have been working at Gordmans part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible with your schedule, have had close to 4 shifts a week, the managers and Leads are so friendly and help you with anything you need, you always have something to do. Every person that works here are so nice and it makes work fun. Also the dress code is very easy to work with. We get little scratch off cards for prizes when we work hard, and there's always little activities and treats in the break room.

    Cons

    There are some overwhelming days, and cons vary in each department of the store. Some associates aren't as responsible as others and end up leaving you to do more work.
