Not the best and not the worst place to work.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsDecent benefits, job is not hard.

ConsThe companies training and computer systems are the worst I have ever seen. No way to easily research anything for a customer. Wether product availability or helping to find a receipt. For a company of this size you would think they would have an up to date data system.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on a training program to benefit your employees. Training doesn't exist in this company from hourly associates to management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Family and fun work

    I worked at Gander Mountain


    Pros: It's a hobby store, so most of the people you work with and customers are… Cons: Retail level can be boring and mundane. Advice to Senior Management: More positive encouragement when a job is done well. More

    Company does not seem to know what direction to take in the retail sporting goods industry.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    I worked at Gander Mountain full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: It is fun to work with merchandise that you enjoy using yourself. The customers are usually excited… Cons: Management pushes the selling of Summit Protection Plans and GM Master Card applications to the point of taking the fun… Advice to Senior Management: Ween yourself off the Protection Plan and Credit Card revenues and concentrate on making profits… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
