Firearm Sales Interview

Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

Interview

Fairly in depth interview process. Two interviews, the first being a tour of the work area and some rather in depth questions based on knowledge and experience with firearms. Second interview is more questions on how to treat a customer and how to get a sale with a customer. Overall it was a bit more in depth than I thought it would be.

    It was short and sweet. They asked a lot of questions about firearms and gauged my answers.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (Hattiesburg, MS) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Not very formal, but I really enjoyed the approached that they used. I wouldn't say the interview qualified for a suit and tie but Khakis and a button up are the way to go. Show up promptly because they are very busy all of the time. The interview did not last more than 15 minutes.
