    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gander Mountain.

    Interview

    Very long process. It was not because they are thorough, it was because they are not able to handle their turnover. It was always a group interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions about examples of situations you have been in.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Apply, phone call, face to face interview, another call, drug test, training. Gander mountain really enforces the direct deposit which is nice and convenient, the process of setting up your ADP is kind of confusing

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Gander Mountain (Saint Paul, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Plan to be flown to St. Paul and back to wherever you live in one day. No matter how far it is. You would think if a company was going to go to the trouble and expense of doing that they would at least put you up for one night.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked several very "Gander Mountain" specific questions using a lot of their "lingo".   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had a bad perception of the company from day one. I've learned to trust my gut.

    Not really an interview. There was no interview process. I was asked to come in and take a drug test after being asked two questions. There was nothing, at all, in any way, more than that.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Gander Mountain (Saint Paul, MN).

    Interview

    Interviewed with 4 people, 1SVP. , 2 directors and 1EVP
    Interview was held in the corporate headquarters " base camp". 1/2 hour for each interview.
    It is good to go to a store and the competition prior to the interview. They are interested in Bass Pro,Academy and Cabelas. If you come from Best Buy or Target,expect the job to be much broader than what you gave been accustomed to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Gander Mountain (Indianapolis, IN).

    You will be interviewed at least 3 times. I would suggest you get everything in writing. Each interviewer will ask a series of different questions, answer best you can. Each interview will take 30 - 45 min. ( that was my experience ).
