Outfitter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cabela's in July 2012.

Interview Details

I was interviewed during a mass hire for a new store. I was interviewed by 2 managers; one that would become my Manager and one from a different store. Both were very engaging and definitely excited to be opening a new concept store. At the end of my interview both managers looked at each other and shook their heads in agreement, I then moved into another room for a drug test.

    I applied online - interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online - interviewed at Cabela's in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied during the holiday season, so it took a little while for the company to respond. My interview went well, but I had to keep calling to try to get things finished. They let me know I needed a drug test and background check, and I immediately hurried to get those completed. Then after learning I passed them, it took about 3 or 4 weeks to find out I was going to be hired for sure. The interview was very laid back, but professional at the same time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cabela's in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial testing conducted online at cabelas.com. Basic I.Q. test designed to weed out personal inadequacies and poor ethical behavior. A waiting period of more than a week before hearing back from the company. Initial interview with management, followed by a second interview with a senior manager. Offer made, pending satisfactory results of a drug test and background check. Training advertised as two week period, but often cut in half, due to high turnover rate of employees and the dire need to fill positions immediately.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    One-sided. There is a 'take it or leave it' model in place and it is inviolate.
