I worked at Gander Mountain

Pros

Employee discount on products and beautiful office.

Cons

Used 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 ManagementAdvice

Bring back the people that loved the industry...not a bunch of people who can just crunch numbers.

    Pros

    Most Co-workers work as a team,and gladly pitch in when needed! The majority are hard working,and it feels like we are a family.

    Cons

    The "good old boys" mentality is alive and rules at Gander Mountain Distribution center.Also,their SOP's may and routinely do change on a daily,weekly,or employee to employee basis.Its very hard not to be resentful! Also,There is a lack of commutication among shifts and buildings,as well as a high employee turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps, if our supervisors would enforce rules and SOP's consistently, it would create better attitudes,and security among employees and,with a sense of being valued- a higher standard of work ethics would be the norm.
