    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gander Mountain (Onalaska, WI).

    Interview

    The interviewer lacked a basic knowledge of communication with others. He would say things like "I'm not saying this because you are a female", someone who does not have sexist views would not even think to say such a thing. You are looked down on from the second you walk in, and can feel the sales pressure just in the interview itself. I was left in a waiting area while he went to find his manager to talk to me, but he seemed to just walk around the store and resume his normal work and forget we had even spoke. Needless to say, I left the building frustrated due to the time I had wasted.

They were asked sorta to fill the interview time.
