No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

They pay well and promote their best workers. It's a very family friendly atmosphere.

Cons

This may have changed, but the store manager at the Fort Worth location was rarely seen. He would come down when we had long lines in the front and try to fix it, but short of him getting on a register, there was nothing to be done. If you needed to find him he was either in his office, in the firearms section or gone.

Advice to Management

Don't rely on your private label stuff to drive business and bring in new customers. Stop shoving the credit card down people's throat. Yes, the store makes money. No, it's not good in the long run for the economy or the company.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to make decisions. Ok discounts, discount off of original price, not sale price though.
    Fast pace environment during holidays.

    Cons

    Poor communication.
    Terrible Pay.
    Front end supervisor position pays way less than other supervisor positions but with way more responsibility.
    Poor cross training in departments.
    Lack of Point of Sale training for floor employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the right employees the right amount of money or you'll lose those people to competitors. Pay employees based off of responsibility. Floor supervisors should not make WAY more than customer service supervisors.
