    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gander Outdoors (Eden Prairie, MN) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the shooting sports sales associate position on a Monday online. I called on a Thursday to ask when id hear from them and since they were busy with their grand opening they said to wait awhile until a manager can call me. Got a call the following monday and set up an interview for the next day. I dressed pretty casual and i wore just a polo shirt untucked with khaki pants, belt, and dress shoes. I walked inside and told the employee what i was there for and shortly after the manager came and i talked with him for awhile and then after i was done with him i talked to another manager and i got an offer on the spot. Keep in mind they are really pushing promotional sales and he said ill get the job if i ask EVERY customer to sign up for the good sam club promotion which didn't bother me, especially since every time i'd sell i'd get commision.
