Terrible place and still paying for it

I worked at Cabela's full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at Cabela's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People seem to be proactive in training and seem to want to help you excel into promotions

    Cons

    Most people working here, are out of work trying to get some kind of salary to stay alive. Many really do not have there heart into it because it;s not what they want to be doing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries need to be higher than they are so as to attract better people for the job that want to make a career out of this.
