Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Allen, TXMay 29, 2017
The turnover rate for employees is ridiculous because the management was so poor. The managers were not good at managing their responsibilities, so the duties were dumped on the leads. The worst part was the lack of respect for their longer-term employees. They took advantage of the people who had been there longer or worked harder than the rest. I requested no more than 20 hours and they consistently had me working closer to 35.

Unique Retail Atmosphere
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Woodbury, MNMay 27, 2017
A typical day at work was pretty average-pace, with rushes between 11am and 1pm.

I learned the importance of teamwork and understanding in a department, because if there's a disagreement, it lowers the morale.

Management, for the most part, is great. There is one manager (unfortunately he's the manager of my department) who is forgetful, arrogant, and barely displays a passable customer service attitude.

The hardest part is dealing with that manager mentioned above. Everything else is very straightforward and easy to understand.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the atmosphere. Unlike other retail environments such as Walmart or Target, Cabela's customers come in because they WANT to be there, not because they NEED to be there. There are far fewer rude customers and they are very understanding and patient if we experience technical difficulties.
Pros
friendly coworkers, good pay, chances to advance
Cons
technology malfunctions

Expectations not met.
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Kalispell, MTMay 27, 2017
Thought company would be good place to work but was disappointed. The management staff (at the time of employment) was young and not experienced in life enough to understand life situations as they arose. Staff has since been changed.
Didn't feel any support and concerns were not addressed in a timely manner.
Pros
Working with public and store crew
Cons
No proper breaks.

Customer Service Outfitter (Former Employee) –  Woodbury, MNMay 26, 2017
Great work environment, but slightly inexperienced management team. Very fun in the beginning once first opened but then it started becoming sort of negative overall. Became under staffed, and unfair in certain departments, all employees were not treated equally.
Pros
Good co-workers, fun place to work.
Cons
Inexperienced Management

Going through change
Cash Office Lead (Former Employee) –  Glendale, AZMay 23, 2017
Cabela's use to be a really good place to work. After the death of the founder, "corporate" took over and things began to really change. Possible merge or buyout with Bass Pro is causing concerns and now there seems to be investigations going on causing red flags. APEX has been reorganizing all positions and at this time, no one has job security. After things settle down and if this buyout is completed, perhaps things will get better.
Pros
benefits
Cons
buyout, no job security

Very poor company to work for
Outfitter in Clothing Department (Former Employee) –  League City, TXMay 21, 2017
The workload working here wasn't difficult, however, management did not have a clue what they were doing and was very disorganized hiring new employees and giving orders to current employees. My number one complaint was they did not give any hours as they hired too many people at once, so in a given week you MAY be given 4 hours FOR THE WEEK. They also really push you to get customers to sign up for 'Club Card', which is a credit card. Even though I had only 4 hours during the week in total they expected me to recruit 1 person for club card a week.
Pros
Simple job tasks, pretty decent hourly wage
Cons
No hours

Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Lone Tree, COMay 17, 2017
Most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers on what they are needing and just looking for so they can have an awesome experience while outdoors. You never know what a typical day is like due to what the customers needs and wants are they change all the time
