Former Employee - Firearm Sales in Blaine, MN

I worked at Gander Mountain part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Flexible hours and great perks. Great amount of sales experience gained on the job.

Cons

High sales expectations after little to no positional training. Learned mostly from customers, making my own mistakes and from other helpful employees. Applied for tuition reimbursement for full-time college; denied benefits using shady, possibly illegal technicality about hours worked, after agreeing to reimburse but denying payment after upholding my end.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If employee discounts and benefits are offered as incentives to increase product knowledge and as perks for selling those products, and are open to all employees; don't withdraw your support or change your stance after agreeing to benefit if employee fully qualifies. It comes across as petty and devalues the trust placed in you as a manager.

    Cons

    Management is horrible,company hires retail management from other failed companies and no nothing about outdoor world.They pick your mind and get what they want ,then set up employees with bogus complaints to get you fired.Got rid of quality people that were full time and hired all 8.00 pr hour part time folks so they don't have to pay benifits
    Poor stock and empty shelves, Buyers are slow to get product out to stores
    BS to sell credit cardsand Pro Plans to boost store managers income!

    Pros

    products are great at this store!

    Cons

    As most companies now, they care ONLY of money. Pratt is all about $ with no knowledge of compassion. It is actually quite a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to share the wealth with your employees, after all, we work as hard as you do do make this company show profit.Offer us medical or at least dental and vision.
