Amazing job, wish it hadn't been temporary
Overnight Stocker (Former Employee), Allen, TXJune 5, 2015
Pros: Amazing employee discount
Cons: A lot of work involved during their sales
Regardless of the position at Cabela's, the pay and schedule were great and the employee benefits were amazing.

Management and co-workers were all great, but the job sometimes had its rough days (most notably black friday).

If you ever get a chance to work at Cabela's, I strongly recommend it.

Expect to devote 100% of your time here
Manager (Former Employee), Post Falls, IDJune 4, 2015
You just have to see for yourself. you will find they have no respect for you or your time, clearly poor leadership here. They will have you show up to work ready to go and tell you to leave because the business is slow and they cant afford the payroll

Great product line, poor management.
Outfitter, knowledge in all aspects. (Current Employee), Kansas City, Kansas at the LegendsMay 29, 2015
Pros: Generous discounts
Cons: Inexperienced supervisors and managers, leading to low employee morale and poor customer service.
I do love working here, as it fits in with my interests (the outdoors). But although I sincerely like the local management and other employees, it seems upper level management is indifferent and show no – more... loyalty to trusted employees.At times (like now) they even seem to be trying to put themselves out of business. When I first started, there was virtually no competition in the Knasas City area, Cabelas was the place to go. But now they have many other stores in direct competition, i.e., Bass Pro Shops, Academy Sports, and now Scheel's opening soon. Even without more and more competition, they are losing much more in sales profits than they are gaining in staffing cuts because customers are leaving the store upset as they can find no one to assist them. Even though they do work with me as much as possible, I feel after six and one half years of quality work performance and loyalty I deserve a more stable work schedule. I want more security to be assured of my maximum number of hours per week. – less

Stocker (Current Employee), Gonzales, LAMay 28, 2015
Pros: everone no what they duties are stock and clean
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work would be putting away a truck , taking three breaks . The most enjoyable part of the day to me is when everyone that's there at 10:00thats the people you will be working with for the night the hardest part is when you get back of your lunch break some people sleep an has to wake up

IT not very compatible with the Outdoors
Developer IV (Current Employee), Kearney, NEMay 19, 2015
The nature of MIS/IT is fundamentally incompatible with a love of the outdoors and the nature of a Cabela's employee. Must purpose to disconnect in order to enjoy that life.

Backend outfitter (Current Employee), Rogers, MNMay 16, 2015
Pros: discount on great gear
Cons: transition of ownership
Days either begin with the unloading of a truck or backstocking product in the warehouse. Later in the day, product will be picked and brought to customers as needed. Forklift and picker operation are – more... needed throughout the day as well. My co-workers and I quickly became a solid team and went through our daily tasks with ease. This was due to great leadership and management. The hardest and most tedious part of the day was the unloading of trucks but also when they were completed it was a good feeling of accomplishment. – less

OK Job
Switchboard Operator/Receptionist (Former Employee), Yakima, WAMay 16, 2015
Pros: Discounts, Hours.
Cons: Constant pressure to push Credit Cards on customers.
Its alright, not too hard, great discounts. Management was fun, no chance of promotion really. The fact that men have to tuck in their shirts but females do not, is kind of ridiculous.

Started as a seasonal cashier, went to customer service and really enjoyed it. Everyday was something new which kept the normal tasks easier to perform. Work environment was pleasant.

love the environment
warehouse employee (Former Employee), Lehi, UTMay 15, 2015
Was a great job, worked in the warehouse, drove the forklift, stocked shelves, and also ran inventory out to customers when the product was not found on the floor. Great environment, that is the hobby that I love, anything outdoors.

Fun work environment with great people.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Cheektowaga, NYMay 12, 2015
Pros: Hour lunches.
Cons: No where to move up in the company, not paid lunches.
A typical day at work, since I was one of the people who worked full time, would be me starting off with unloading a truck of pallets, and then loading them into the warehouse before the store even opened. Then when the store opened, I was taking care of customers in the footwear department, running and getting sizes they needed and ordering online if needed.

Pros: great incentives

Co-workesr and management are pretty amazing. Just wish there was more room for advancement in a "man:"based company. This company offers great incentives and opportunities to do different events in your community. Also allows great travel experience if one is able.

Sales Associate - part time (Former Employee), Rogers. mnMay 8, 2015
Co-workers were great. Management was average. The main problem I had with Cabela's is that did not want full time employees an have to pay for benefits.

A workplace rich in culture
Full Time Outfitter (Former Employee), Anchorage, AKMay 7, 2015
Pros: Co-workers
Cons: Management and College options
The culture at Cabelas was in every aspect of your day to day job. The people who work there are usually hard working knowledgeable people who love what they do. The management at the Anchorage Alaska – more... branch however was terrible, distant and controlling are two ways to describe them. The fact that working Full Time at Cabelas eaves you with absolutely no options as to College lead me to leave the company. They will NOT give you two days off a week on the days of your choice so scheduled college classes are out. – less

Backroom Team Member (Current Employee), Garner, NCMay 6, 2015
A typical day at work consists of unloading the freight truck and afterwards taking all freight to the floor for replenishment. Once all shelves and hooks are filled all left over freight is taken to the backroom and assigned locations and back stocked. All co-workers are great and always there to help each other out.

Sales Associate in men's clothing (Former Employee), Rogers, MNMay 6, 2015
Pros: Fun atmospher
Cons: Too large to walk some days!
Having a plethora of men's hunting and fishing clothes, it was really educational. All-weather, summer, fall and everything in between. A really great environment to work in.
