    I worked at Bass Pro Shops full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Onsite work out center, onsite cafeteria, good work atmosphere, great pay and hours, yearly company picnic, yearly company holiday party, service recognition

    Cons

    Very unlikely to work with you if you have a significant illness even with doctors orders to not work, little to no compassion when such things happen, as a car accident or heart attack.... especially if you work under the IT Project Manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the nature of the jobs your employees do before ridiculing them.
    Don't pkay the favoritism game.

    I worked at Bass Pro Shops part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, management is friendly and so are the coworkers, hours are nice.

    Cons

    Unappreciated, overworked during long-term events, no backup from management, no breaks, sometimes after finishing everything you would be sent to a different section to do someone else's job untIl hours after close, and no warning when a long term event or your job is over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of reacting, anticipate needs of employees. Don't make them stay hours after because another department didn't do their iob. Communicate with employees.
