No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

In my department, you get to work independently and with little direction. The manager pretty much trusts you to get your work done in the time allotted. Only time you get a task list is if there is a special project or sale coming.

Cons

There is a serious lack of respect and appreciation for the overnight team. Its a small team that is responsible for replenishing merchandise and are often blamed for misplaced items and improper inventory practices. The warehouse manger does not seem to be an advocate for his team. Too many rumors run around.

Advice to Management

Create more incentives for supply chain and overnight teams.

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

    Pros

    I am forever grateful to have this job and they were willing to take a chance with me. I had zero retail experience, but they saw that I was willing to be here.

    Cons

    The downside is the pay, part time medical insurance, and cut in hours after the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Really do take a good look at who you are hiring. Yes, the low wages is a factor. You have some employees that take advantage of you; while many of us have good work ethics and are willing to give their all even with the low wage base. We are not the brown nosers, but the ones who remain silent and try are best to do the best job possible.

    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.
