    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.

    Interview

    They will call you for an interview, then if they like you, you will have a second with the store manager. From there you would go for your background and drug test. If you pass then you have two days of computer training to get done before you are allowed on the floor.

    Interview

    The interview process was brief. I had an interview scheduled and waited for over an hour to meet with a manager. Afterwords, I would be contacted by another manager to inform me that it would be a couple of weeks to for them to screen the other candidates. I was offered the job and I accepted.

    BATF Associate Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Gander Mountain (Woodbury, MN) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I completed an online application and was contacted within a couple of days to schedule an in store interview. I arrived early for my appointment purposely so that I could familiarize myself with the store layout and the items they have on display. When I went to the office for my scheduled interview, I was told the guy was too busy to see me at that time and could I return in five hours to interview with the firearms lead person. I drove nearly one hour from my home to this store so I was a little miffed when told to come back but since I was really wanting the job, I smiled and graciously agreed to return at that time. Arriving at the rescheduled time, I was told the interviewer had left early but the lead person would be there shortly and I should speak with him. When we finally met he seemed quite surprised that I was to told to speak with him about the BATF job because that position was not within his (firearms) department. This person was quite apologetic, he took my name and contact information and assured me that the individual who was in charge of the specified job would be contacting me on the following Monday, (this was on a Friday). On Monday, I didn't get the call. Not on Tuesday either nor did I receive any calls from anyone at Gander Mountain since.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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
