    I have been working at Cabela's

    Pros

    Co workers,customers, discount and the environment are a few of the reasons the job is enjoyable.
    Also the knowledge I have gained about hunting and fishing.

    Cons

    Being forced to get club cards
    Nothing is ever good enough
    Senior management
    No trust in HR department
    Working 40+ hours for a corporate walk and then 16 hours over the next 2 weeks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store manager creates a do as I say not as I do mentality with the rest of the managers. Which has made for the rest of us to lose trust and faith in our leadership. I just hope that I can last long enough for someone to see the true colors of our upper management.

    Pros

    Co-workers are genuine and good people. They bond together and do a great job, Lots of expertise and ablities. The good name of Cabela's still means something.

    Cons

    Terrible ethical behavior by upper management. Don't believe a word they say. Pay is horrible! Work/life balance is nowhere to be seen. They pile on the workload with no extra pay. Set you up to fail. Cost of living in Sidney is ridiculous compared to working class group of employees' salaries. They talk about honoring employees but they don't. Lots and lots of good ol boy stuff. Benefits are very sub par. Regular workers can't afford to access their health care. Treatment of women in general is really bad. Co-workers struggle together with these things. Upper management is clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to raise salaries. People cannot live! Cut the good old boy stuff. Your mid level and lower level employees don't respect you or believe you. Hire enough people to do the job. Invest in your work group by paying a living wage. Live up to the great name of the company before it went public. Don't live down to greedy Wall Street types who only self promote.
