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

    Pros

    great discounts and fun products to work with. it was also alot of fun to help customers get setup with the products they need for a

    Cons

    it seems like they are beginning to move away from quality products and getting the sales associates to push lower quality products where they make a higher margin. the weekly ads make working here a nightmare many of the ads have mistakes with the wrong item pictured and you have to correct customers on what the issue s which can be a major issue

    Advice to Management

    some of the managers at my store were very helpful but it was not a consistent occurrence and it wasnt always their fault. staffing was always a problem at my store and that could really only be blamed on base camp for not giving the store enough payroll to support an appropriate staff
