Pros

Camaraderie. This particular location has some of the most knowledgeable and caring employees in regards to not only the customer, but each other. It is an atmosphere of fun, work, and knowledge.

Cons

Some...alright "one" of the Senior Managers appears to be frustrated and closed minded, in terms of change and motivation techniques when it comes to employee recognition, and department procedures. Some continued education and the opportunity for additional real life experience's will help this person become a better leader and motivator.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you see talent, and choose that person for management, allow that person the opportunity to grow and experience success. Closed mindedness, and not embracing the possibility of different ideas/procedures, just hinders the company's growth. Micro managing frustrates the Senior Manager, Mid-level Manager, and all employees involved.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great! Everyone is willing to assist and share whenever possible. Very friendly and family atmosphere, much more so than other places I have been.

    Cons

    Management does not acknowledge that employees cannot be forced to prevent all mistakes by threating dismissal if an error is made by a customer! The working environment continues to deteriorate as employees become more and more nervous about their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and learn about personnel motivation. Punishment does not insure better performance, but just the opposite as people will be more nervous about making a mistake.

    Great Co-Workers, Some of Management Spoiled the Fun

    I worked at Cabela's

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great co-workers, had a lot of fun setting up the store and the initial opening. First-line supervisors were good and worked hard for everyone.

    Cons

    Several members of management began poisoning the Cabela's attitude and values when they started cutting back hours of part time workers who asked for more hours and started hiring more employees, most of them people they knew from previous employment. Also, several lead positions were filled by outside hires when qualified people were already on staff, again filled by people known by the managers at previous employment. Also, changed the responsibilities of some jobs after hiring basically removing all potential for promotion for certain employees and making the chances of getting a full-time position in that job almost impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate HQ needs to spend more time on top of the mid-level managers at new stores and clamp down on them when they try to bring in outside work procedures. Cabela's made its name being different from the others. Having new managers from other companies come in and then try to change that culture once Corporate had stopped being on properly daily really hurts employee morale.
