"Fun atmosphere with bad management"

Former Employee - Sales Associate in Buda, TX
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Buda, TX

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

Pros

Great place to work. Training is way above most retail places. Customers that come in are in a good mood most of the time, the staff is relaxed and easy to get along with.

Cons

Management is bad at communication between the employees and them. They micro manage all the time and push the credit card way too much. They make that the initial thing on advancement and don't give people enough breaks or time off.

Advice to Management

Have better communication and to stop micro managing.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of jobs available if you don't plan on staying long and look at it as a stepping stone to better opportunities in a better place.

    Cons

    The weather in Sidney is horrible. Too hot to go outside in the summer; too cold to go outside in the winter. The other two days are fine! Dirty; windy and smelly depending on the wind direction. There is no middle ground. If you've move from somewhere where there's water and trees, you won't be happy. If you think Cabela's is all about the outdoor life, think again. The corporate headquarters is in the middle of nowhere! There's absolutely nothing in Sidney. No amenities, not one great place to eat, no chains; you can't even get a Whopper within 40 miles. The company is making lots of money. That is their only concern. The management the use to be made up of hardcore outdoor people are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Move the corporate headquarters to attract and retain better talent.

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

    Pros

    Some pretty amazing people work there and the training they provide is good. Every so often they try to do something nice or fun for the employees.

    Cons

    Inconsistent scheduling, sometimes unreasonable expectations (they expect you to get one credit card referral a day which isn't always easy), some of the managers are awful (after 6 months, the manager of my department still doesn't know my name), there is a lot of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    communicate with employees better and don't play favorites.
