    Retail Firearms Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thornton, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cabela's (Thornton, CO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on a Thursday. Received a phone call the next day - Friday. During a brief phone interview, I was told about the job duties and responsibilities, and I gave a brief background regarding my work history and firearms knowledge/certifications/training. I was then invited to come to the store on Monday for an in-person interview.

    I arrived at the Cabella's store a few minutes early and was informed that the person I was scheduled to meet with had not yet checked in to work. I was sent to the back firearms counter to ask to have him paged, but he never responded nor checked in. Over the next hour and a half, the nice staff attempted to reach him several times, with no response. I finally gave up waiting and told them I was leaving.

    I had hoped to hear back later or the next day that an unforeseen emergency had arisen, but never heard back from anyone!

    Digital Media Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Hiring process was pretty standard. Had the screening call, panel call, and then onsite interview. However the process seemed rushed- as they said they needed to fill the position immediately. (This turned out not to be the case. See below.)

    The onsite interview went really well from both my perspective and the validation from the recruiter after the onsite. The outlook of the digital marketing department seemed to be in the air given the acquisition but the employees I spoke with seemed somewhat optimistic.

    Now, you are wondering why I had a negative experience? Everything about the interview process itself went exceptionally well up until the follow-up by the recruiter. After the onsite I was told that I was a “top” candidate but to this day I have never heard a definite “yes” or “no” as far as next steps. In fact, I have followed up several times and all that has been said is that they have no further direction at this time about hiring for the position. It has been over three months since my final interview so I am assuming they are no longer hiring at all for this position. It is extremely confusing for someone to be told they are in the final consideration yet never get any additional update. It is safe to say I was definitely not treated like a top candidate in this process. Please, respect the time and energy set aside by candidates to give them updates. Especially candidates that take time to come for final interviews.

    Outfitter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview

    Received a phone screen and answered a few simple questions about work history, availability, etc. and scheduled an in person interview for a later date. I showed up ten minutes early to the interview, and was told to take a seat and wait. 5 minutes after the scheduled interview time, someone came up and told me the manager I was scheduled with wasn't there that day, but a different manager would be with me soon. 20 minutes later she finally showed up to interview me. Took me upstairs, fairly simple interview, same questions as the other reviews, I thought it went pretty well. She told me she would call me the next day. I received no call. I waited until the end of the week, and still no call, so I called them. Got the operator, who told me neither manager was in, and to try again later. I tried again every day for the next week and a half, leaving voicemails, talking to HR, banging my head against the wall, never receiving a call back. I have since given up and applied elsewhere. Very frustrating that they cannot even call back to say no you are not hired.

    Manager kept it breif and didn’t even go through the full interview process with me. He explained what the position involved and that there were other people he still had to interview. He didn’t ask me many questions at all. Very unprofessional.
