    I have been working at Gander Outdoors full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great for beginner sales people. Incentive pay in addition to competitive hourly wages. Generous employee discounts and free GoodSam Roadside. Very flexible if looking for part time hours. Definitely potential for growth.

    Cons

    It’s still retail. Hours and scheduling can be a hassle especially if you are a key holder. Part timers are obviously first to get hours slashed however you will still feel the effects of hours being cut as a full timer. Prices and layouts change constantly and shelves/products remain empty for weeks at times. Lacking a consistent flow of customers, stores look virtually empty too often.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lose sight of employees that care about the business products and customers. Everyone is NOT replaceable.

    I have been working at Gander Outdoors part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The actually work of selling product and talking with customers is great. Nice discount.

    Cons

    New policies are not rewarding the best producing employees with more hours. Upper management has flat out lied to employees several times. Reduced pay rate for new hires down from what is was a year ago and the new employees are getting more hours than the older ones do to their cheaper cost of work. Expected to take on the responsibilities of a supervisor after one left without extra compensation or fulltime hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees and actually take care of your employees and they will take care of you in return.
