    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gander Mountain in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview is pretty brief, you will be seated with a manager and they will ask you a few questions regarding your knowledge of customer service and what your past experiences in the field were and how you approach different situations, it's pretty basic and easy. I applied for a position in the hunting department and there was a written test involved which was also rather easy.

    Interview Questions
    • For firearm/hunting associates, there is a written test on your knowledge of the department. It's about 3-4 pages long and asks you basic questions about types of firearms, optics, and different calibers suitable for hunting certain animals.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Gander Mountain in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Good hiring process. Thorough interview process and corporate training. Promise of positional training, but never followed through. Corporate training details many benefits available to employees with emphasis on open and encouraging access to all employees; failed to deliver on most simple benefit agreement.

    Interview Questions
    • Situational/scenario questions concerning firearm sales, and ATF training.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not extensive. Offered a low, $8.25 hourly wage, and I requested higher amount. at $11.00/hour. Denied and told that all sales positions start at $8.00/hr. Needed a job so I took the offer.

    Firearms Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Middletown, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Gander Mountain in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    They held a mirror under my nose to see if I was breathing. A few semi relevant questions were asked. I offered more info. and when I gave them some very relevant and useful credentials they totally ignored them and placed me in a totally different position. This is a company that doesn't pay attention to the skills and credentials that their employees might have. Instead, they just want brainless bodies they can plug in behind a counter or on the floor, the kind of place that makes Walmart look good.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very bogus. A take it or leave it and don't tell any other assoc. or else we'll fire you.
