Pros

If you are into guns, fishing, hunting your employee discount may help.

Cons

There are necessary upgrades to their computer system (crashes, runs slow) which when busy and dealing with impatient customers is not fun. They spend money elsewhere on unnecessary items.

Advice to Management

Set your priorities better. Spend time in an actual store, not a quick walk through. Speak to employees not the managers which mostly are clueless and protecting their own jobs.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Cabela's has the best gear and the best people. If you enjoy the great outdoors and being around others that share similiar interests, this is the place to work. The product discounts are good, especially with training and contests.

    Cons

    It is a retail environment, so for many positions that means having to work nights, weekends, holidays, etc., with occasional closing and then opening responsibilities the next day.
