    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gander Outdoors part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The vendor discounts, store discounts, and in some, rare occasions scheduled hours were all decent.

    Cons

    Was not compensated for earned commission in footwear. Was continually lied to about earning commission in footwear from date of hiring to the day I quit. Was not told until the first day of store opening that "part time, temporary" employees are ineligible for commission pay. Male managers ogled underage female employees, made inappropriate, sexist comments, and generally did not have a handle on employee scheduling....

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees. Be accountable for the things you say. Worry less about sales, credit card signups and care plans and more about creating a strong, core team of employees THAT TRUST YOU.
