    I worked at Gander Mountain full-time

    Pros

    Great discounts in store and through vendors starting day one, enjoyable environment.

    Cons

    Management pushes very hard for credit card and protection plan sales. This is very typical for retail jobs, but can become tough when you know the credit card has such a high interest rate and is most likely not in the best interest of the customer.

    I have been working at Gander Mountain part-time

    Pros

    Good access to kit if you are a hunter or shooter, decent selection of gear available to order from manufacturers. Learn a lot about local hunting spots that you may or may not know.

    Cons

    Hours cut with no notice, poor communication from management at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Better treatment for employees. We get better treatment as customers at our competitors stores than we do at at our own workplace. Better discounts, perks, and overall benefits to the employee would go a long way.
