    Pros

    Cabela's is a premiere retailer and puts its customers and its Brand at the forefront of everything they do.

    Cons

    There are managers that run their areas and treat their employees with such arrogance and entitlement that it makes for a difficult work environment. These same managers do not consider promoting their employees but seem to get promotions for themselves. Their excessive hunting/fishing trips at the cost of the company are a priority while business can sometimes suffer. Managers who do not have children do not understand the need for work/life balance when it comes to illness or medical appointments. When issues are brought to the attention of HR, the managers prevail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee surveys are conducted each year and are to be shared with employees and used as a tool to improve work environments. Yet there are departments that have not seen results for years.

    Pros

    You get to look at some nice equipment you usually cannot afford. You get to try to convince customers that the junk the company is trying to push is junk.

    Cons

    No guarantee of hours. Did away with department managers and switched to toadying section managers. NO pay raises. Poor benefits. Pushing company owned credit cards. Poor employee discounts. Extreme favoritism. Forced to sell garbage. Staff trained in what to sell by vendors. Often no real knowledge of items no real time to test items. Company knowingly sold defective merchandise. Forced to drive point sales and disregard trying to get return customers. Constanttly trying to have retail sales staff work at registers instead of trying to do their jobs and sell merchandise. Refusal to give commissions. No sick leave. Pressure to stay at work in very bad winter weather instead of going home when safe. No chance of advancement they do not promote from retail to corporate. If you have a scheduled day off and haven't hit your 40 hours for the week you are on call. Cutting back on hours,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually re-learn what customer service means. Don't cowtow to the vendors. Stop selling Chinese made garbage. Try to get return customers. Try to figure out that your staff and customers are more important than stockholders.
