    Former Employee - Stock PT Then Apparel Associate FT in Palm Beach Gardens, FL

    I worked at Gander Mountain full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fun to work and shop there through the first two store managers; Customers loved to come there, they would offer specials over the air for shoppers, etc. and gave employees raises, incentives

    Cons

    Leads and some mgrs. need better training; on third store mgr. in two years, no raises, called last minute to fill in when younger employees not show up, sales slow down, dump people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better and if customer wants a price match give it to them. Some said they wouldn't come back after driving all the way from Okeechobee to PBG store and then not get same item they had bought at same outlet price as before. If it makes them happy they may spend even more money while in the store instead of leaving for good.

    Pros

    Discount on flimsy sporting goods and sports wear

    Cons

    Terrible corporate attitude toward customers and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the big box mentality and all the big box managers and develop a business model of your own based on providing quality service & products. If you really want to be successful you have to do something different than what you've been doing or else you'll always be sucking wind.
