    Pros

    Discounts, Environment, and People. The employee discount is great. The environment was amazing. If you love the outdoors, you have to love Bass Pro.

    Cons

    As a sales associate, you don't make that much money. I found that because of the employee discount, they get a lot of your money back. lol

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had great management. The managers really cared about me and were always supportive. I have no negative comments about the management at Bass Pro.
