Great place to work
Cabelas Club Card Outfitter (Former Employee) –  Tualatin, ORMay 7, 2016
This was the most fun I had at a job. The employees and customers were great. The work was easy and relaxed. The best part was being able to interact with customers that were as passionate about the outdoors as I was.

From a caring to not caring company
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Bristol, VAMay 6, 2016
When starting with Cabela's it was a family oriented company. It was a great place to work. After about 4 months the company turned around and was more of a corporate place to work. No more caring about their employees.
Pros
birthday cakes, lunches provided on busy days
Cons
HR management

They are terrible to work for
Outfitter (Former Employee) –  Tooele, UTMay 4, 2016
I would never recommend anyone to work there. They treat their employees poorly. There is a lot of drama. The bosses show favoritism.

Great opportunity and amazing work/life balance mix. Growing company with a lot of opportunity. Town of Sidney, where Cabela's corporate is located, is a great community and the perfect, safe place to raise a family.

Fun place to work but also can be stressfull
Retail (Former Employee) –  Owatonna, MNApril 23, 2016
I really liked it here. It was a lot of fun being in the environment, and being with other people who also share your hobbies and interests. Like any job there are good co-workers and bad ones. Although, even the bad ones help you out when you need it. Like any retail job, it can get stressful when they are busy. At times you could have up to 6 people asking completely different questions at the same exact time, with all of your co-workers also having the same problem, so you would not be able to get any help if you needed it. The best thing about the job would be the discounts.
Pros
REALLY GOOD DISCOUNTS
Cons
can be stressful, Pushy co-workers

Great co-workers, it is getting paid to do one's hobby.
Gun Library Outfitter (Current Employee) –  Hamburg, PAApril 21, 2016
Typical day is providing legendary customer service by helping customers find the products that they need and are seeking. I learned how to use the AS/400 computer system and learned more about state regulations. Management is great. Co-workers are great. There are no hard parts of the job. Most stressful part can be trying to resolve an issue with a customer, but I would not call it hard. Most enjoyable part of the job is all day, from when I walk through the door and onto the floor to when I leave at night. I enjoy being at Cabelas.
Pros
we do get a company discount
Cons
Pay could be better.

Could have been better...
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Hammond, INApril 19, 2016
The store and customers were fun and interesting. BUT........Management is what made that place miserable. Because they are miserable, it rubs off. But, management can hide in their offices and relax while the workers have to force a smile on their faces. To the management.....why take a position that you cannot handle?? That place would be so much better if they had secret shoppers checking management out.
Pros
Fun events, learned new things

Company was fine. Job was seasonal. Breaks were a good length and compensation was good. Company schedules far in advance giving plenty of time to adjust personal schedule or work schedule if need be,

Micromanaging
Phone Sales (Former Employee) –  Kearney, NEApril 6, 2016
Corporate culture is modeled on middle-school cliques. You're also monitored how many times you get up to stretch your legs or go to the bathroom. (Not good if you suffer from poor digestion and/or cramped legs!)

They work on Thanksgiving and Black Friday as well.
Cons
Cliquish and overbearing

Horrible Management
Gun Counter (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALApril 1, 2016
The only good thing about working here was the people I met and worked with otherwise you get horrible hours if you get any hours at all. The merchandise is so over priced that when the sale goals are not met they cut hours. They fired full time people and brought some back part time so they can use them as they see please. The management shows favoritism and they don't really care about you at all. You'll work every weekend too so good luck trying to see your family. They are short staffed so good luck getting a break or lunch. Definately overworked for the little pay and little hours that you get.
Pros
Good friends
Cons
no breaks, lunches, management horrible

Cash Office Associate (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KYMarch 30, 2016
Like every job it has its ups and downs. New company for this location and getting to work with a variety of different people can be complex sometimes.
Pros
They do try to take care of you.
Cons
Sometimes you're just as invisible as the customer.
