Poor working enviroment
Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee), Utica, NYJune 28, 2015
Pros: Full time employment with benefits.
Cons: High turn over rate, depressed employees and unfair treatment
Sadly the company does not follow policies set forth in the associate handbook. Top management lacks leadership which fosters an environment that leads to employee stress, distrust and discontent.

Can be a great company to work for.
Team Lead (Former Employee), O'Fallon, MOJune 16, 2015
Pros: Great company when the people are not working in fear.
Cons: HR department that has no power
Typical day at Bass Pro can very depending what department can determine your day. The management at the location I worked at motivated its people by fear of losing their jobs. It was so bad that HR manager stopped helping the workers and let the GM over step HR department knowing he had no say so in protecting the people.

Fun place to work while completing school
Cash Office Clerk (Current Employee), Clarksville, INJune 5, 2015
The hardest part of this job is having to manage a school/work/life balance when one is required to work weekends. I learned how to create relationships with co-workers and how to properly assist customers of all types. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the dogs brought into the store by customers.

Management has your back
Event Coordinator; Full-time event coordinator (Current Employee), Springfield, MOJune 2, 2015
Pros: Management has your back
Cons: Pay is not the best
The pay for the position which I currently occupy is poor but the amount of flexibility in the job makes up for this. For example there are weeks where I will work for between 50 and 60 hours mostly on the weekends and have 3 days off during the week for days I have school. Then there will be weeks where I only have to work 32 hours because there aren't events currently happening so I am simply planning and getting ahead for the next event. This job is ever changing and quite a bit of fun, for example I write an outdoor blog for Bass Pro Shops which I am able to use knowledge gained through work and personal experience to write. I currently work with another Events Associate who is wonderful, this job needs a lot of energy and creativity and she definitely has both in abundance. There is really no hardest part of this job, a lot of this job is interacting with the public and with Pros in our store while planning large events for the store. So there are interesting days but there is never a part of the job that is really hard. The most enjoyable part of this job is working with every single department in the store while also working closely with the public to make events go off successfully. Personally I have grown our Tuesdays with the Pros, an event every Tuesday in which a fishing pro comes in and talks about the fishing on different lakes and what the fish are biting on that week. We went from an original core group of 9 people coming to the event to an average of 45 people in the span of 2 years. The ability to grow something like this while working with management to make the event more enjoyable for the pros and the customers has been amazing. Rolling into management I have found that the management of the store and corporate have had my back at every turn. Also management has been willing to hear my thoughts on events and take these into consideration when they are applicable. On a whole I would say management is one of the best I have ever worked for.

Credit Card Associate (Former Employee), Macon, GAMay 19, 2015
Pros: Freedom of advancing departments
Cons: no overtime
Every day of work consisted of selling the credit card to customers. Not only sell, but explain the pros and cons of the card. I let them know how much they would save with the card and how much they wouldn't.

I worked as a sales associate for the Hunting department. The company was a fun company to work for but the salary was very minimal and the hours were short and the scheduled time off was very sporadic.
