    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (Saint Paul, MN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Quick process, which was appreciated. I applied online and received a call from HR within a few days. I was asked to come in to interview at their headquarters in St. Paul one day later. I was interviewed by three people separately, one-on-one. They all asked identical questions and were behavioral-based (nothing out of the ordinary). Prior to my interview, I read many negative comments about the company culture. After meeting with my interviewers, I started to see why. When I asked about the work environment during my interview, there was a lot of hesitation. One of my interviewers also made many arrogant comments. After telling him about my travels, he was quick to say that I must have a "F/M Scholarship." I didn't know what this was at first, but he preceded to tell me it stands for father/mother scholarship. This is not the case; I have never received one penny from my family, so I thought this comment was completely unnecessary and undermined my hard work. The company isn't doing so well, which seems to have created a toxic work environment.
