    Zone Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    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.

    Made me stand around and wait for 20 minutes before the interview even began. Interview itself took all of 5 minutes. Someone had mis-scheduled and the guy thought I was coming in at 1pm not 9am. Seemed like he didn't care, kept looking at the security cameras the entire time.
