self passed and filling orders
Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNJuly 18, 2018

Pros

being left with a full floor of work to be put up but it was fun

For the outdoor enthusiast this is a great place to work.
GROUP SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNJuly 16, 2018
The associates are the best part of the job but can also be the most frustrating part of the job. The work environment can change based on the management-style of the current General Manager.

Nice for retail, decent managment
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Denham Springs, LAJuly 15, 2018
If you are not able to be flexible then you will likely not be hired. It is expected to leave all days open. Fellow employees were kind and helpful. Management was a click of there own, not very open to those under them.

This could be the best place to work, but...
Product Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Springfield, MOJuly 13, 2018
Bass Pro Shops management does not take the time to help their employees or take the time to listen. They berate their employees verbally, and do not treat them well. This should be the best place in the world to work, but management is scared to empower anyone to do their job. They always say business is good for 11 months of the year, and when the month of reviews comes around, all of a sudden the business was the worst ever so we cannot raise pay. The employees are a great bunch of folks and really care about the products they sell.
Cons
Horrible employee treatment

This place sucks.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cucamonga, CAJuly 13, 2018
They only promote their friends, they do not offer full-time, they do not offer benefits, and they do not work with school schedules. Worst place to work at.

Fun workplace but can be stressful at times
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Macon, GAJuly 12, 2018
A typical day at work can get a little stressful but I enjoy helping people. The hardest part is when a lot of people come in like on Black Friday or Holidays and the lines get backed up. Also the most enjoyable part is just greeting customers that come in and just helping them find what they are looking for.

Good company
Bartender and Server (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJuly 12, 2018
Great company to work for, but in the restaurant there was no career advancement only downside. Great pay and benefits! Don't be discouraged plenty of room to achieve and grow in the store for the ones who enjoy retail.

The hardest part of the job
Group Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZJuly 11, 2018
The hardest part of the job was that it is the amount of work being put on the managers. It gets harder to balance the amount of work that is put on the managers and you always feel you are playing catch up. There is not enough time in the day to perform all the functions in your job and keep on top of your employees and customers.
A typical day at work is fast paced and you get to sell products that you enjoy using your self to get outdoors.
Pros
Fun and exciting place to work
Cons
The new club card " credit card" is being pushed more than sales, Work life balance is tough, You are always on call and the upper management can't seem to handle customer issues.

My experience with Bass Pro

Pros
good benefits, fairly decent pay
Cons
poor management, toxic and unprofessional work environment

The pay wasn't great, but they are willing to work with your schedule especially if you go to school full-time.
Overall the job can be really tiring or really relaxing.
