I have been working at Gopher Sport full-time (More than 3 years)
Gopher Sport is a great place to work especially if you have a passion for fitness like myself. You are constantly striving to make people better with the equipment you work with. Gopher cares about their employees and it shows in the benefit and PTO package. We have fun and the people here are awesome!
Owatonna is not the ideal location for a 20 something, but it's SO close to Rochester and the cities it really doesn't even matter.
Advice to Management
Leaders could be a bit more involved in the daily life of employees. It seems like they are in their own little world most of the time.
I applied online. I interviewed at Gopher Sport (Owatonna, MN) in December 2016.
I had a phone interview with HR - cordial, nothing surprising. It lasted about 30 minutes and was told the hiring manager would be in contact if they were interested.
