    I have been working at Cabela's full-time

    Pros

    Good company with great beliefs

    Cons

    They let a select few drive us to the point where we are now

    Advice to Management

    more open conversation, being in the dark really sucks

    I worked at Cabela's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at the cabelas in Mitchell, SD overall I loved working there.
    Decent benefits
    Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Minimum wage but raises increase with time.
    You get hounded for not pushing high interest rate credit cards.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing high interest rate credit cards it comes off as pushy and hurts sales.

    I have been working at Cabela's full-time

    Pros

    Flexible home-work life balance. Good discount. Good benifits. Paid holidays and good stock options.

    Cons

    Under staffed and under paid for the work we do and don’t make salaries that comparable to industry standards. A ten years employee makes the same as what a new employee makes in the same roll.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable. Show employees appreciation often, the smallest thing can really make a world of difference. Managers should always act professional at all levels.

    I worked at Cabela's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    co-workers and general atmosphere were great. Benefits and room for growth are very nice as well.

    Cons

    Poor product distribution, which causes far too much stress and customer issues

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees in their departments with ideas for inventory improvement, and new product reccommendations. The guys on the sales floor know a lot more about what people want to buy than the manager who dictates from the office upstairs.

    I worked at Cabela's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really liked my job because it was close and had decent employees to work with. I enjoyed listening to the stories from the customers along with felling my own.

    Cons

    They expected to much during the slow season. I had previous supervisor experience so they expectme to know everything and wing it while others took off.

    Advice to Management

    Train for specific jobs throughout an employees section or department. Also have manuals on everything in the department allowing employees to be self taught. Knowledgeable of ones department allows customers to be assisted properly.

    I have been working at Cabela's part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Cabela's actively trains its employees about the products they are to sell. And, offers employees significant, tiered discounts to better experience the products for themselves.

    Cons

    Cabela's GAVE very good incentive by providing even its lowest employees with the benefit of decent product discounts, and parties with free gifts and food; in recent years though these incentives have lagged significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Provide even your lowest employees with a decent product discount, and entice employees to remain and gain experience by keeping the highest tier, Summit(Cost + 5%) product discount.
