    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.

    Merchandising Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    No Offer
    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.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    You apply online at their company website which has some bugs. You get a call back and have two interviews possibly at the same time. I walked in offered me the job because they were extremely scarce on employees. Rushed the whole process and asked if I would take a drug test after that you work with them the following week.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you get someone who walks in that is otherwise not wanting anything to buy something?   1 Answer
    • If you talked to a lady that just got robbed and was looking to buy a gun but knew nothing about it would you still sell it to her?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The job is just that... A job not a career. I didn't want to go into the job knowing I wasn't going to be happy with myself for putting myself in a dead end job. They offered me $10hr but I would make more with unemployment... Just being honest.

    Zone Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (Charlotte, NC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Rushed and interviewed by an outside store manager. Asked cookie cutter questions. Just overall horrible process as the manager had a sheet where he was just writing chicken scratch. Interview had no impact and was pointless. As I stated there was an outside manager that interviewed with no input from DM or actuall store manager.
