    I have been working at Cabela's part-time (More than a year)


    It's way more interesting selling guns than groceries, and the discount is reasonable on in-store items. Vendors offer promotional pricing (through 3point5 and individual vendor programs) for employees as well, which helps you experience their products for less and lets you get great gear at a significant savings. Coworkers are generally great, and the sort of people who work here tend to share a lot of interests that can be hard to discuss in other workplaces and environments.


    Managers are terrified of everyone up the food chain, and let everything roll downhill because they have no spine. Employees get blamed for failing impossible tasks, nothing short of absolute perfection is acceptable. Issues are immediately reported to corporate (before the employee is even notified that there is a problem) and result in formal write-ups rather than being worked out on a personal level like reasonable adults. Everyone almost immediately develops a highly negative attitude toward our work and workplace as a direct result, and except for a hardy few out turnover rate is absurdly high for such a specialized job (our average hires in the last two years have lasted maybe four months, half of which is spent on training, before quitting or being forced to quit due to impossible scheduling). Training is inadequate and severely outdated, contradicting more recent edicts from corporate. Some departments don't communicate and release conflicting information - information security training says all employee IDs must be visible at all times, but the employee dress code says that badges must NEVER be visible for one example (IS training and good practices are generally ignored by everyone in the store though, so no huge surprise there). Rules seem to change almost on an hourly basis, are poorly communicated, and inconsistently applied (we're not allowed to have cell phones, but we are because we have to call to verify price matches and our competitors have caller ID and don't answer when we call on the store phones, but you'll still get yelled at for having one on you). System updates for software essential to our jobs are pushed with no notification or training on how to use the updated system, leaving us to try and figure out something we've never seen before (and remember, nothing short of absolute perfection is acceptable - if you screw it up, you'll get in trouble). Equipment is poorly maintained, broken, or missing - essentials like staplers break and never get replaced (except by employees providing their own personal equipment), and toner runs out regularly. Generally things that cost money only get done when not paying for it prevents us from doing business or runs the risk of a lawsuit. HR uses the "several six inch deep stacks" method of filing. It results in frequent lost documents, and specifically in my case resulted in a week of paid vacation being "lost" until I went and complained about my paycheck being about $400 short. Whenever you change your schedule (availability change, vacation, etc) you have to watch them like a hawk to make sure you don't get screwed over because they forgot to do their jobs. They blatantly violate state labor laws as well, requiring us to be obnoxiously familiar with the laws and call them on it. They won't risk a confrontation with the state over it and resolve the matter quickly, but as long as nobody's complaining they don't bother complying with anything that doesn't save them money. Specifically with the firearms paperwork jobs, the added pay and experience mean you're extremely overqualified for non-management jobs at other types of retailers (like consumer electronics stores), but it's not good enough for office jobs unless you spend your time also working on a degree. It puts a relatively new worker with exclusively retail experience in a rough spot where forward advancement is impossible without a drastic change, especially since upward movement in a company this backwards is difficult (I can think of exactly one internal promotion to manager since I've been here, everyone else came from the orange big box hardware store).

    Advice to Management

    You're incredibly disconnected with employees - doing things like yelling at everyone who shows up first thing in the morning (you know, the people who showed up on time) about the importance of showing up on time, then immediately questioning why morale is so low. You ignore and belittle us constantly, insisting that you know our jobs better than us despite having done it for exactly a day when you were first hired as part of your training. Start treating your employees like people, and stand up for us when your superiors demand something you know there's no way we can deliver on. You need to realize the amount of stress you put us under with our normal jobs, and recognize that the way to get us to do better is not to stress us out even more by threatening us. Communication desperately needs to be worked on too, we didn't find out about a new employee incentive program for` a good eight months or more after they had introduced it - even our managers didn't seem to know about it.
