    I have been working at Cabela's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They offer part time benefits

    Cons

    You must get the cabelas club card...daily. If you don't get 1 card per week, you are harassed beyond belief. All the management know you are on the "zero list" and then you are harassed more.

    If you are just an average card getter, your chances of promotion are nil. They cannot say that, so they make something up such as you are not working, or you just mill about. It is all about cards. They allow long termers from around the store to sit up front to just get cards. It is very disappointing they make you feel this way because it is a fun and easy place to work, regardless of age.

    Store managers and leads have a lot to learn as well. They talk about their workers to other workers. Also, they will call an outfitter(worker) to come pick up a sock when they could have done it easily.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive instead of reactive.
