good place to work

General Employee (Former Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

I worked at Gander Mountain

ProsEmployee discount on products and beautiful office.

ConsUsed to be lots of very passionate people that lived the "Hunt, Fish,
Camp" lifestyle that were the buyers and senior managers but for last several years, most have quit or been fired because Sr. Mgmnt brought in people from other industries (Target, Macy's, Home Depot, etc) that really watered down and eliminated the people that built Gander....it is very sad.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the people that loved the industry...not a bunch of people who can just crunch numbers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
