    I have been working at Cabela's full-time

    Pros

    Other employees are helpful, decent work environment. Get 40-60 hours a week. Biweekly pay. No experience needed, very willing to hire seasonal and part time. Management will take the time to answer any questions.

    Cons

    Very "big brother" percentage efficiency tracking using the RF units in Replenishment. Your rate is everything. Don't know whether shift will be 8 or 12 hours until you're in the middle of it. Not many permanent full time openings; don't know if you will be offered a position at the end of seasonal employment. Poor work life balance currently, but may change soon with a new staffing schedule for Wheeling distribution center. Expected to work 12 hours 7 days a week during holiday rush. Pick mod training is pretty good, pallet picker training in building 2 is more "figure it out as you go".

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of strive and give everyone a dollar or two raise.

    Pros

    Culture, 401k match, discounts and an ethos for success

    Cons

    Bass Pro Merger and the sheer panic. The only store position protected is the GM if they signed to stay through Q1 18

    Advice to Management

    Value your hourly outfitters. They make or break your success

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

    Pros

    Cabelas has a great selection of outdoor products. Products that will pretty much fit in anyone's budget. I found that each department had many very qualified/educated employees who really enjoyed their positions*.

    Cons

    The turnover at my particular Cabelas was very high. I would attribute this to poor training, low wages. I like many of my fellow coworkers who have an extensive background and knowledge in the industry, we love passing our knowledge along to other employees and customers in order to help them make smart purchase choices.
    You would expect that knowledge would be appreciated and compensated accordingly, however this is not the case. Wether you're highly experienced or a total green newbie you'll be on the same pay scale for the most part. Not enough to make a living! Most employees will only stay long enough to take advantage of the discounts, especially once they've been there for a few months and see that Cabelas is not all it's cracked up to be as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Management and Corp include your employees whom are the life blood of your company (yes, floor sale associates too) onto what's really going on in the store and the company as a whole. My fellow employees always felt as though we were constantly left in the dark and lied too, this kills any and all motivation!
