    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Gander Outdoors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very fun fast paced job, commission was a huge plus, learned a lot of very valuable skills.

    Cons

    Limited pay scale, management turnover, employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, treat them like you would want to be treated and not just like cogs in the machine, this speaking at a corporate level, in store management was great to work with and everyone in the store was like family.

    Former Employee - Expert 
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great discount. Not busy so you dont have to work to hard.

    Cons

    Boring. Nothing to do. No shipment to put out. No customers. Micro managed by managers that do nothing but set in office. District manager is rude and nasty which got him promoted. That really sums up how the feel about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Respect. You will be respected when you give it. And learn to treat people fairly. And stop having favors.
