    I worked at Bass Pro Shops full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They sell fun. Few shoppers come there in a bad mood.

    Cons

    Bass Pro Shops has turned into a 100% profit machine. In 6 years I saw 5 MAJOR management reductions. BassPro Is no longer ran as a people/family oriented company. Dedication from employees means nothing. Bass Pro Shops is no longer something special. Check out the lack of maintenance in their buildings nowadays.

    I worked at Bass Pro Shops full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and discounts. A pleaseant environment.

    Cons

    HR would not let managers manage. Everything had to go through HR when there was an issue with an employee. Managers weren't allowed to make decisions without consulting HR. The staff was well aware of that and basically did anything they wanted.

    I worked at Bass Pro Shops full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good discount on store branded items(40%) and even discounts on boats too!! Get to participate in the store events which can be fun, Any left over food from the events gets given to the associates to enjoy Cake at the end of each month for birthdays that month(select store participation only) Monthly and yearly associate of the month and you even get a close parking spot for that month!! Break room is fully stocked with food/drinks that can be purchased Coffee is always made in the break room for free!! Directv in the break room(select store participation only) Free Monthly breakfast or lunch for star employees who receive positive customer comments Often times there are contests for employees to get in and drawn for a free items which can be valued at $100 or more The store is nicely decorated which is fun to work it and watch customers enjoy too Offsite training events fully paid for which is almost like a mini vacation for you!!

    Cons

    Salaried position which means you get over worked Often times because you are salaried you get called or emailed on your day off and end up working from home or going in to take care of something Unrealistic policy to reach credit card sign up goals Dissatisfied employees in all parts of the store level from being forced to ask customers all day to sign up for credit cards Getting reprimanded for not reaching credit card goals, and also not fare or consistent coaching and counseling, they will put words in your mouth or turn things around on you so you look worst and it makes them look like the good guys Almost always working weekends since those are the busiest times of the week Store favoritism with management and associates, management talks about others in the store to other people and the word eventually gets out to that employee HUGE turn over rate in the store, must have been atleast 2 new hires weekly going in, with that, every job requires a second interview and even that didn’t help the turn over Background and drug test for every position in the store
