Review Highlights

Pros
  • The employee discount is pretty good too and it's tiered based on seniority (in 26 reviews)

  • It was a fun work place to just go and talk about hunting fishing and camping (in 11 reviews)


Cons
  • If you work in the warehouse you'll have some fairly steady hours, otherwise you'll have a pretty bad work-life balance (in 8 reviews)

  • A lot of the customers don't want another credit card (in 14 reviews)

    I have been working at Cabela's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As an entry level position you get thrown right into the business and control the inventory for 50+ retail stores, very empowering and you get to see your immediate impact in the business.

    Cons

    Very stressful at holiday time, a lot of bosses make it feel like there are "too many cooks in the kitchen" sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although a great entry level position, there needs to be either responsibilities shifted or compensation increased for this position. With the retail growth there are some major pitfalls in the systems used and the ability to execute reliable results.

    Pros

    Incredible atmosphere, positive and energetic people. The core values are strong - Superior Customer Service, Quality Products and Services, Integrity and Honesty, Respectful for Individuals, Excellence in Performance. It's only been two weeks but it's an incredible family to be a part of.

    Cons

    There's really nothing that I can think of yet for this category. If you don't believe me, apply, show your passion for a great company and join our family of outfitters!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positivity! Strive to be the best outfitters every day.

    Great culture in the store
