Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed 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 Question – No questions of any relevance. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very bogus. A take it or leave it and don't tell any other assoc. or else we'll fire you.
