Firearm Sales Interview

Firearm Sales
Flint, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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

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.

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.

Very Easy Interview

Firearms Sales Interview

Firearms Sales
Middletown, NY

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.
