    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (Saint Paul, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on the company web site and then was contacted by human resources for an interview. A time was scheduled and I drove to the interview for multiple face to face interviews. One great thing was parking validation and parking in Saint Paul was easy and close to the location.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewers followed the questions written on pieces of papers and most of the questions centered around experience in retail and troubleshooting POS with questions around other experiences of other experiences within the retail world at the store and corporate level. Added in was some worst case scenarios with some questions surrounding that scenario or to spook people out of the position. So I would say the interview is easy if one has the experience followed up with HR inquiries about HR related Q and A.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (San Antonio, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Tedious. Lots of interviews, lots of questions. Lots of the same questions. Lots of empty promises. Lots of foreshadowing to how great it could be. Lots of time going back and forth to the interview location in order to meet the entire management staff. It was tiring. It was like being screened for treehouse membership.The overall experience was soul sucking.

    Interview Questions

    • Too many questions. They want to put you through a lot of pressure. A lot of rewording the same questions. A lot of your typical retail crud.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Non negotiable, and a lot of pressure to accept the offer ASAP.

    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.
