    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Gander Mountain.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with 4 people, 1SVP. , 2 directors and 1EVP
    Interview was held in the corporate headquarters " base camp". 1/2 hour for each interview.
    It is good to go to a store and the competition prior to the interview. They are interested in Bass Pro,Academy and Cabelas. If you come from Best Buy or Target,expect the job to be much broader than what you gave been accustomed to.
