    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview

    Super easy and laidback. The manager was new to the front of house, so he still had the mindset of interviewing people for the warehouse. We talked over the phone to set up the initial in-person interview. I got there early, and then we went into the conference area where he asked me around 10 questions. Got a call back two days later asking me to come in to meet with the GM - got an offer right away.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview

    Quick and I was upset i didn’t get the job I applied for and this is the last time I work at outdoor stores. I met Tiffany who is HR and she was nice at when I was first hired but that act faded away. Brandon carrack interviewed me but doesn’t work there anymore. Management is strict like you can’t tell a joke to coworkers without them saying anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview

    Was contacted within a week of applying. They emailed me to set up a time for a phone interview. I wasn’t called for the phone interview until over an hour past the scheduled time, but it was only about 5 minutes long and just basic questions.

    I was invited to do an in person interview the same day, where I was then hired on the spot.

    Overall, it was an easy interview, pretty standard retail interview questions. They expect knowledge and experience in outdoor hobbies and activities so be ready to talk about that a bit.

    Everyone was very friendly and the interviewer wasn’t at all intimidating (which is hard to come by these days).

    Loved that I got to do both my interviews AND get hired all on the same day. Took a lot of the stress out of the process.
