Merchandise Assistant (Current Employee), 12100 W Center Rd – March 9, 2012
Pros: at least 3 sample sales a year
Cons: feel like slavery, raises only given once a year, benefits suck
Gordman's is a nice company to work for, but sometimes the Buyers and DMM's can be rude and unprofessional. The Merchandise Assistance's feel like they are personal slaves and when the Exec of the company come down on the Buyer's, then they are known to take their frustrations out on the Merchandise Assistants.

previous worker (Former Employee), colo spgs – May 22, 2013
Pros: fellow employees
Cons: management, store manager
Work here at your own risk..Management is terrible, no communication between them. Store manager is terribly rude to employees and constantly talks down to them ib front of any one. If you can handle being treated this way that's the job for you.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – May 9, 2013
Pros: vending machines, communication on walkies, first job
Cons: low pay
The store doesn't keep track of what sells when trucks come in, the district distributor sends what ever they think the company needs. The management for the most part is wonderful. They hire people a few cents high of minimum wage. Not enough hours unless around major holidays

Customer Service, Cashier (Former Employee), Littleton, CO – April 6, 2013
Pros: i was able to spend paychecks there, great environment
At Gordman it was a very fun and exciting job in my opinion. I had enough skill to where I was hired on as the front desk cashier up at customer services. I had to take on a lot more tasks such as making break/lunch schedules, managing the cash drawer, handling the store keys, ect. I've learned that I am a person who enjoys working under any circumstances. – more... I've learned to keep up with the pace when stores get busy, I've learned to take work serious to become successful and get further into the company. Management was wonderful at Gordmans, I enjoyed working with the managers, they were all so friendly and understanding. The co-workers as well, I enjoyed working with them as well. We all worked as a team and helped each other out to get certain tasks and project completed. There really wasn't a hard part to my job at all. I understood everything that was needed, I was able to handle all of the tasks I was assigned to do. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the clothes and accessories and being able to help customers find what they were looking for. – less

Most of them acted like they were boss even if they started the same time. The managers had their favorite people there. there was no really hard part about the job it was simple and easy. I would say the most – more... enjoyable part of when I was working there would have to be The customers, Even though there was some bad/rude customers it was still enjoyable to meet new people. – less
