Maintenance Outfitter (Former Employee) – Gainesville, VA – October 3, 2017
Providing customers with an excellent experience was my focus. This was achieved by keeping the premises clean and pleasing to the customers. Legendary customer service was of upmost importance. My tasks consisted of providing legendary customer service, keeping the facilities clean, keeping the cart corral full, nightly cleaning of the windows and floors, repair of broken equipment, etc.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, MI – October 3, 2017
I loved the job, but the management was horrible and could be so much better than it was. Over worked people and didn’t want to pay over time. The pay should be better, especially for how they treat there workers.
Short to no breaks, lunch sometimes. Awful management
Customer Service Specialist II (Former Employee) – Kearney, NE – September 22, 2017
When I first started at Cabelas it was a caring, relaxed environment where management worked hard to help with flexible hours or time off. As Cabelas began a buyout process, life there became about the bottom line. No overtime was allowed during Peak, we just had to work harder and be behind. Personnel shakeups were hard on us, and most of the management is now gone. Very stressful.
Warehouse (Former Employee) – Waco, TX – September 22, 2017
After working in the warehouse at the Waco location I realized that I didn't even want to finish my degree in management because their management team ruined it for me. The warehouse is a department they pretty much trap you in so there is no room for advancing within the store if you start in warehouse unless you transfer to another store. The management at the Waco location is a joke. They sit in the office the entire day and only come out long enough to gripe at outfitters about the creditcard they require you to push or how they aren't making sales. I could go on for days, but I can tell you it's a dog eat dog world there. Good luck.
Fishing Sales Coach (Current Employee) – Grandville, MI – September 21, 2017
Cabela's asks a lot of its employees but the compensation isn't too bad and the discounts and access to products are great. There are pros and cons and strong personnel and poor personnel as with any workplace.
Back End Retail (Current Employee) – Springfield, OR – September 20, 2017
Typical day includes hard labor, long hours. Management is discriminatory towards woman in the warehouse. There is little to no advancement opportunities in the Warehouse. Being a part time position medical and most benefits are not applicable.
Gun Library Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 20, 2017
I routinely overheard my co-workers given inaccurate and misleading information to inexperienced and unknowing customers. I spoke directly with my co-workers about the need to provide safe, accurate, and helpful advice to prospective firearms buyers, but changes were not forthcoming. I then talked with my manager (a great guy to work for, by the way) but learned that my co-workers had been at Cabela's for a long time and his hands were tied. i also talked with the floor manager and the store manager with no results. I realized nothing was going to change... I was not comfortable with the work ethic displayed by my co-workers, so I decided to leave Cabela's.
Goods sales pitch for employment, but lacked empathy for employees
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 19, 2017
GM wouldn't stay around for long. Seems they would only stay for about 6 months and then move to another store. The location I worked at was a training ground apparently for new managers. Mid-level management was great for the most part, but didn't have much say in some matters.
Some great people to work with
poor pay, poor management, treat you like a child who is 6
Sales (Current Employee) – Chesterfield, MI – September 18, 2017
fun place to work, great co-workers and management. Fast paced, must like to interact with the public. The hardest part of the job is closing and having to straighten up the store at night. They reward you for everything and are always doing fun contests.
Outfitter (Current Employee) – Buda, TX – September 14, 2017
Cabela's is an exciting place to work at where you can talk about your passions. The management team is thoughtful and willing to help you out. If you do not know something about a topic, you can always find someone who will be willing to teach you.
Cabelas Club Visa Outfitter (Former Employee) – Sun Prairie, WI – September 13, 2017
Cabela's is a great company to work for. I love the environment and the managers are usually pretty good. I just think this company has integrity and treats their employees fairly, the one thing I didn't like though is they kind of force you to push their credit card upon customers.
Good pay, Good management
Expect every employee to promote credit cards on every single customer
