Has changed in the past few years,

Supervisor (Former Employee)
Middletown, NY

ProsDiscount on products you enjoy, working with people who like common things

Consall they care about now is metrics, hires outside of the company on managers/supervisors that last less than 6-8 months. Take responsiblity from the weak and put it on the stronger assocaites shoulders and do not do anything to get rid of weaker.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on bringing up the employee moral, and making them feel important.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at Gander Mountain part-time for more than a year


    Pros: Awesome discount, access to countless outdoors products to familiarize yourself with the trends, robust brand training program, and most importantly, an… Cons: Not much accountability or formal structure.
