I have been working at Bass Pro Shops full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Met some wonderful people, the interaction with others that loved the outdoors was amazing. The best part? The discount. The company is wonderful! If you love the outdoors, this is heaven. The company itself is great.

Cons

When the store opened, it was wonderful. Morale was high and excitement drove us each day. But, as upper management failed in leadership and guidance, it began a domino effect. Management turns a blind eye to what's going on. As associates, we are exhausted in trying to make positive changes. If you harbor an opinion that differs from management, you are not recognized because often stated, we are simply associates. So many policies and procedures are broken each day only to be swept under the rug. As associates, we see the disregard management has for the good of the store and its people. It has brought morale to an ultimate all time low. A sad situation for such a wonderful store that has so much potential.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If GSMs have disregard for what's going on, the associates are quickly following. Too high of a turnover. Some wonderful people have chosen to leave because of in store politics.
