    Not too bad, but I wouldn't want to work there for too long.

    Pros

    It's a great opportunity to sell and learn about products that you use. Customers are usually willing to talk about hunting or fishing which makes the job much more fun. The co-workers are great too. The employee discount and training programs are a great way to get hands on experience with products while getting some awesome new gear for yourself.

    Cons

    Lot's of pressure to reach sales and credit card goals. Even when goals are met, there is constant pressure to get more with little incentive. Management will use any chance to limit benefits or bonuses. Don't expect raises very often if you are commissioned sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees for doing a great job, most part-time employees work very hard for little recognition. Store management shouldn't get bonuses for the work the average employee does.

    I worked at Gander Mountain full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large retailer. Small team in corporate allows for a lot of hands-on.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Lots of senior management without a lot of people actually doing the work.
