    Pros

    It was a clean store fun to walk around and talk to people about different things. Good deals for workers on any item owned by bass pro too. I just wish I worked a different position

    Cons

    Unless you work in camping, or Clothing don’t work here. For 6 months i worked here and about 2 months i worked 8.5-10.5 hr days (Nov-Dec) and never once got overtime. Btw i was hired as part time and they knew I was a full time college student. They were not fair and many co workers were nasty. Many were very nice and great people tho. John Morris was cool

    Amazing management and fellow staff

    Pros

    Bass Pro is a great place to get your initial retail experience. They are company that was very flexible with my college schedule. They do expect a lot of you but there is no question that you are valued by your managers. There was always great incentives for going above and beyond what was asked.

    Cons

    At the time the pay was the lowest in the area. There is also no commission on marine electronics which was also a bummer.

    Good Experience, Poor Leadership

    Pros

    Decent Pay for first corporate job. The name "Bass Pro Shops" is a good resume builder. Lots of benefits for full timers; insurance is cheap, 45% off at the stores, 4% match on 401k.

    Cons

    Leadership and management structure is stuck in 1985. Offer almost no WFH and don't help you move up much. They do not give entry level employees influence on their decisions even though they are the ones implementing it. Many leaders are backing down or leaving which makes it feel like a sinking ship.

    Pros

    When I Left in '18 I was making $11 an hour after 3 years, so pays not terrible and full time employees get great benefits and discounts

    Cons

    They treat their employees terribly, even management. There was a saying there: Bass Pro doesn't fire people, they just make you miserable so you quit. they also treat all employees the same. It doesn't matter how great you are you're still treated the same as the employee that steals money or doesn't show up. I had a coworker who was caught and admitted to stealing money from the register who kept her job for another year.

    Was good until merged

    Pros

    When worked for Cabela's... felt like large company but small town relationships. Worked well together with everyone. Saw true partnerships amongst several cross functional areas. Set high expectations and all worked together to achieve them. Once merged with BPS, lots of that went away though. And once had Bass leadership, lost the partnerships.

    Cons

    See above once Bass Pro took over. Leadership lied numerous times. No support. More concerned with Nascar sponsorship than truly making sure employees had what they needed.
