    I worked at Gordmans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family like atmosphere; everyone was genuinely happy to be there and loved the other employees

    Cons

    Closing was a mess, the liquidation reps were awful and made the whole process confusing and annoying
    They made us hate our jobs and dread coming to work
    Had they not closed, I'd still be with the company
