    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.

    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
