I have been working at Gander Mountain part-time (less than an year)Pros
If you love guns it's heaven because you are surrounded by them all the time.Cons
It's a corporate style environment that pushes protection plans and emphases the bottom line and maximizing sales dollars over customer service sometimes.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Remember that our customers are experts too and don't always need a pro-plan or summit plan. The credit card push is too much as well. Just let them buy without the additions and constant bombarding with the credit card, pro-plans, summit plans, and largest firearms and footwear basket.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
