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.
