    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cabela's (San Antonio, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    15-20 minute interview with the manager of the department. Be friendly and be yourself, it doesn't hurt to make them laugh. Following the interview I heard back the next day that they would like me to join the Cabela's team. I went in to take a saliva based drug test and get paperwork. You then come in for orientation and training a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience based questions, they will give you wiggle room if you do not have experience or work history. They questions similar to "Name a time you had to deal with a difficult customer and how you handle it?", or "Name a time you had to work with someone who saw things differently?", and "Tell me about yourself and why you want to work at Cabelas?".   Answer Question

    Data Processor Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cabela's (Buda, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very un-professional. When it was time for me to ask them questions I asked and they did not know the answers to them, not one of them. I am sure it is a great company to work for but the hiring process was a joke.

    Training and Development Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rogers, AR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cabela's (Rogers, AR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was seated in a small room with two individuals. They were dressed in jeans and collared shirts.They had a list of behavioral questions to ask, which I answered.
    I was asked to give an example of how I would train an individual on a product. I had to think on the fly and mentioned a portable heater that I take on the deer stand. I basically pretended it was in front of me and demonstrated where the knobs were, how to turn it on, how heavy it was, etc. I was over qualified and did not know that this was an entry level. When I was told it was an hourly position, I explained I did not know it was a "beginner's" position.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe situation in which you were faced with a situation where you faced adversity or negativity. Describe how you overcame that obstacle and what you learned.   1 Answer

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's (Wheeling, WV) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a woman in the HR department. I arrived on time and didn't have to wait very long in a lobby. I was taken to an office where a man named Scott told me a little about the job and asked me questions.

    I was told that the job starting time is 6:00 am and that there is no set ending time. I could be working 6 -10 hours a day and wouldn't know until I came into work that day what my day would be like. He also said that I would be working 7 days a week between the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve with very little chance of a day off in between.
