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

    Pros

    Great people. My department was especially cohesive and worked as a team. The store manager was changed while I was there. There was a lot of "grumbling" about the new management style, but a lot of that was self-inflicted by the complaining Outfitter. If you do your job well, there was recognition and opportunity for advancement. I also loved helping customers find the right gear and equipment for their outdoor adventure.

    Cons

    While discounts on Cabela's brand products were great, you had to work at Cabela's for at least 7 years before you got the maximum employee discount on other brands. But that is a minor issue. Starting wage is low retail rate, but I wasn't there for just the money.

    Advice to Management

    This is for the new Bass Pro management team: Don't reduce the stores to skeleton crews. Cabela's is known for it's customer service. Most people will pay more for great service. Keep the Cabela's sales training program in place and improve upon it. I was a top-producing outfitter because I applied fundamental sales techniques and created a following of customers because I knew how to be proactive in meeting customer's needs on the sales floor. Contrary to popular retail belief, products don't "sell themselves".

    Pros

    I love the culture in the building when it comes to passion for the outdoors. It's cool that almost every meeting involves someone telling a story about a recent fishing trip, camp out, or hunt. There's a real focus on the customer and doing the right thing for them. Entry level roles can have quick growth opportunity. Benefits are solid, but pretty much on par with comparable jobs/employers. Overall, a great place to work. I get up and come to work every morning with optimism that we're headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    The culture is highly collaborative. If you like working on your own and just "getting things done", it might be hard to adjust to how much inter-team and intra-team collaboration occurs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on product value. We don't need to offer products at the lowest cost, but we need to not be the most expensive. Giving people the best value for their money will help us win.
