    I have been working at Gander Outdoors part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    At my gander were all basically a family that works together to accomplish the goal of being the best, when one of us is having an off day we try our best to bring that staff members moral up. For being one of the smallest stores around we sure rival the bigger stores in sales and memberships.

    Cons

    Having to try and push maintenance plans and memberships to hit metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Better incentives for hitting metrics for the whole crew not just the solo artist.

    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.
