Worth the experience.

I worked at Cabela's

ProsThe managers don't make you feel that they're above you and you're just a lowly worker. You have all the opportunities in the world to state an opinion and implement a change for the better if they agree and they listen to your concerns.

ConsIt can become quite tedious---the amount of workers compared to the amount of shoppers isn't quite adequate enough to handle peak times it seemed. But they still manage...

Advice to Senior ManagementY'all are doing a great job, and I hope it's kept up and doesn't go the way of most major chains. I don't see that happening but I know a few (including myself) who left for a better opportunity for hours and pay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
