Another associate had this to say: "Anita truly deserves the honor of being the face of Gordmans. She genuinely cares about others. Anita is smart, efficient, hard-working. She is professional in every aspect of her work. Working with associates or vendors, Anita it is always courteous and caring. She is always ready to take on extra projects within the department and outside of the department. She participates on our gTeam and the gCare committee.

Anita wanted to leave you with a little advice while you look at your benefits package. "Look at the big picture, not just how much will come out of your paycheck. The cheaper option might not be the best option and vice versa, the more expensive might not be the best fit for you."
