Application

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cabela's.

Interview

The interview was easy enough and was not challenging, there where other interviews occurring in the same room and they had you doing paperwork before the interview. Overall it was a pleasant interview and the interviewee was nice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's (Huntsville, AL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Did an application online on a Friday and got a call the next Monday for an interview on Wednesday. The interview was your standard interview. I was interviewed by the GM and then the customer service lead sat in and listened. A day or two after that I was called back for a second interview, this time with the floor manager. This time it was just one on one and again a very typical interview but there was a role play scenario at the end of it. I was given information on 4 different products ( hiking shoes, a tent, binoculars, and fishing lures ) and I had to pick one and sell it to the interviewer. A drug test was administered at the completion of the second interview. And offer was made a few days later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cabela's in August 2014.

    Interview

    It was a cattle call for themost part. Tons of people. Had to answer the same questions that everyone else on here has listed before. Read those and have a answer. Was offered a job by phone a week later. However, i asked a question to which couldnt be answered right then. They said they would get back to me. Never called me back. I called and called, left voice mail, called corp HR... spoke to someone and never got a call back. So if you dont take the first offer and say yes... then your not going to get a second chance. :(

    Negotiation

    Read my other comments... i didnt get the job. I never got a second call back. An they offer one price...9.50 a hour... take it or leave it... period.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cabela's (Tulalip, WA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted 1 month later for a 1:1 interview. I was asked very generic interview questions and then was asked to participate in the 2nd phase of the interview. The 2nd phase consisted of a saliva swab drug test. I was then contacted 1 month later with an offer by the warehouse manager(who is no longer with the company).

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cabela's (Rogers, MN) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Attended a job fair and presented resume. Was asked typical interview questions, and then I was given the chance to question company make up, theology, wage and benefit, and finally expectations of my position.

    Work culture at this particular site is management by intimidation, from the top. No viable solutions or alternative approaches offered as to opportunities presented, only whining and demands. Coaching and problem solving skills would be helpful, or the option of "teaming" up with another, that has the knowledge to move in a positive direction and bring resolution to the opportunity.

    Interview Questions

    • What process knowledge, or product familiarity will you bring to the department, and how do you see that as beneficial to the team?   Answer Question
    • What style of negotiation would you employ with an un-happy customer? Would you use the same approach with an irate customer? Do the two instances differ, and in which way?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, flat offer to all new hires.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's (Abbotsford, BC (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty basic questions asked in an interview. Interviewer went over my work history and everything on my resume. I filled out a questionnaire beforehand and he was going over it; which department I would prefer, my knowledge in each department etc and also scenario type questions about my past work experiences. Overall it was an okay interview.
