Pros

Products and coworkers are fun to work with.

Cons

Do not by any means get sucked into moving to Sidney. Bought a house there and after deciding to move away have had it now five years, can't sell and paid too much given the non existent life, no immediate cultural activities, 60 miles to a Home Depot, 4 hours to a decent restaurant. Clubby, crappy rednecks and a thriving drug trade and homicides top it off.

Advice to Management

Get a clue, nobody really wants to live there.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Great discount. Friendly atmosphere. They do a great job of hiring for higher positions from within the store. Excellect advancement opportunities. Very good at working with you on scheduling conflicts.

    Cons

    As with every retail job weekends are a must. Busy during hunting season and holidays but it dies out for a while from January-May or so.

    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 Management

    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.
