    I have been working at Cabela's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the outdoors, the people are great and the discounts are even better. Great all around place to work for

    Cons

    The only downside to my position at Cabela's is the overnight schedule and due to the Lead Supervisor schedule you never have weekends off with your family to go places.

    It looks like you are not the only one who is loving our discounts! We hear some feedback about hours and that is a balancing challenge for us all the time, but it is absolutely on our radar to work ... More

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fun & enthusiastic environment. Great opportunities for pay & vacation in management. You have to be willing to move to another store though.

    Cons

    Can't work more than 28hrs per week unless you're FT. Scheduling problems. Management don't really listen to outfitters. Not great pay for the stress of working with ATF compliance.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is coverage on busy days. Be there when needed. Listen & respond to problems that employees bring to you.

    Everybody worked together and as a result the customers were taken care of.

    Its hard to move up. People tend to get into a good position and keep it

    Allow full time people to have a set schedule so they can get a second job.

    I have been working at Cabela's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Comfortable small town atmosphere, casual work environment

    Cons

    Lack of local talent and difficulty drawing in remote talent to a small town leads to challenges with middle management competencies. This creates a situation where skilled workers are promoted into leadership roles they are unprepared/unsuited for, often simply through attrition.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace remote and flex workers! Cabela's has a great opportunity to expand it's workforce with skills knowledge workers by simply allowing Outfitters to work from locations other than Sidney.

    We love to hear proactive suggestions like remote and flex working. We really appreciate all that our outfitters do for us and hope that we can grow our talent with ideas like yours!
