    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fort Worth, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview Details

    I submitted online for interest as a NICS Compliance Outfitter, it took approximately 2-3 weeks to receive contact from Cabela's. I conducted the interview and presented all required documentation. Once I completed the required background and drug testing, they said they would be in contact right away. I am still awaiting contact, and attempts at contact have gone unanswered. I know my background is clean with no issues, as I just separated from military service and had a Secret clearance.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Cabela's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a cattle call for themost part. Tons of people. Had to answer the same questions that everyone else on here has listed before. Read those and have a answer. Was offered a job by phone a week later. However, i asked a question to which couldnt be answered right then. They said they would get back to me. Never called me back. I called and called, left voice mail, called corp HR... spoke to someone and never got a call back. So if you dont take the first offer and say yes... then your not going to get a second chance. :(

    I applied online and was granted an interview for a new store. Most of the people interviewing were avid outdoorsmen. The interview was a list of questions and the interviewer wrote down my answers. I hadn't had a job before in customer service so I was at a large disadvantage answering their questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sidney, NE
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sidney, NE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cabela's in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Resume submission, followed by a three-tiered interview process (2 phone interviews, and an on-site interview.) The first phone call is a screening, mostly pertaining to the basics: work history, and a bit of life-style (in order to judge compatibility with the culture) while the second phone call was a very technical interview that lasted about 45 minutes. The on-site interview is in-depth, meeting the team you will be working with, the manager, and the management-chain, all the way up to Sr. Director. There is a significant emphasis placed upon fitting in with the culture as well as the company values.

    Interview Questions
