Stress and strain for 11 an hour is not worth it. On top of that you could be dying or have a legit doctor's note and they will still hold it against you. For probation you are only allowed to be absent for 3 days. Mind you probation period is 3 months (90 days). When you are past that, you are allowed 10 days. Good luck. not worth it.

Company is going downhill very quickly. Every piece of clothing has declined in quality, and increased in price. The company has more clearance than they know what to do with. Sales aren't reaching their goal. The time for success for this company has come and gone. They are past the point of no return. It is only a matter of time before they fail.

If you want to be alienated, underpaid, understaffed, and over stressed, this is the place for you! While Bass Pro Shops claims to be a "family oriented" business, they are the furthest thing from it. The company is failing, and the stress can be felt by all employees. The managers are more worried about selling credit cards than helping the guests. I was told that if I didn't get a customer to sign up for a credit card, I would have to jump in the pond out front. That isn't even a lie. The only way to succeed is to be friends with the managers outside of work. The have no interest in seeing their employees advance in life and will fire you if they hear that you are looking for a new job. After firing, they will target whoever was closest to you and try to push them out as well. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY. I would rather work at WalMart. Also, the only "bonus" you get is a ham.

First, you interview with the HR manager, she is really friendly but a very busy person so it may take a while to get an interview. Then if you make it past her interview, you will be interviewed by the store manager, he is a bit more intimidating but he is a super good guy. His biggest concerns are efficiency and customer experience.
