Great company, complicated advancement.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It is a wonderful company to work for, but it became difficult to advance at the location I was at because any time there was a higher position open, there was usually a person from outside the store that would receive the position. I understood I probably wasn't the world's most qualified candidate for the positions but after being suggested to apply many times for different positions and nothing came of it, it became disappointing.

Pros

Good management, good coworkers, laid back, always something to be done.

Cons

Hectic at times, difficult advancement.

Not the best place

Since Cabela's was taken over by Bass Pro Shop, the product selection and quality has decreased so customers are not happy which leads to less traffic and higher stress for pushing credit card sign-ups.

Sucks big time

If you are not a favorite, you wont fit in at Cabelas. This store shows so much favoritism to certain outfitters and others feel worthless. Sometimes no matter how much work you put in, it's not ever recognized. Managers have relationships with outfitters below them. Its just like high school at this store. Too much drama and too "cliquey".

Pros

Discount

Cons

Management and the favortism
Was this review helpful?

Stressful, misleading

Cabela's used to be an ideal place to work, however, recently there has been a move away from customer satisfaction to an emphasis on upselling the store credit card. With the new merger between Cabela's and another large company, all focus has been on upselling the card and not at all on customer satisfaction. Sales have dropped and hours are steadily decreasing.

Save yourself the headaches

If you are not in the management click, you will never advance nor even get an interview for a full time position. Outfitter are told we are one big family but, if you are seen talking with other outfitters in the store you are written up, yet you are to know the other areas of the store to help the customer.

Share your experience

Let job seekers know what it's like to work at your company.

Fun at first, but management was a nightmare

Do yourself a favor and don't even consider it. When our store opened we hired 125 new employees. Two years later to the date - all but 12 of the original hires had left. Any benefit to working there (like discounts and pro plans) have all been taken away. It's a horrible place to work.

Pros

None

Great

Good company to work for. It is retail so you have long retail hours, and lots of fast paced situations, but if you are a good worker you will have job security.

Was a very fun job, great co workers. Management could be better

Cabelas was like a family, my co workers were my friends and most days the job was very enjoyable. Management could be better. They focus on selling the cabelas club card and less on customer service.

Pros

Provided lunch on occassion

Cons

Having to request time off 1 month in advance
Was this review helpful?

A good place to work especially if you are a college student. They try to work around your schedule.

The time I spent there was a learning experience - having never worked in retail before. I have no complaints about the store, management or work environment. I personally did not like the hours that retail work encompasses.

fun

Good management overall fun people to work with. Not much flexibility with hours if you as going to school. Pay it good and the discounts are worth working there

inconsistant

This is a time where change is common. Jobs created other deleted. You must be aware of what is today may not be tomorrow. Management changes frequently. Equality is not common. Rep-remands are not equal.

Cons

confusion

Productive employees with bad managerial staff.

Everyone of the outfitters in Saginaw work hard and we all get along well and have extensive knowledge wjere we can help one another. However most of the managers don't realize the importance of us and don't acknowledge the work we do. Overall, it's a decent place to work but could be a lot better.

Pros

Some workplace events that provide fun entertaining atmosphere.

Cons

Bad managerial staff, no incentive.

great oppurtunities

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.

Pros

great incentives

Cons

hours not steady

Working Freight

Start work at 4am unload the truck full of freight scan all the product to receive it in to our system. Break down all the freight and then put it in carts and work it out to the floor. What ever that does not go out to the floor take back to the warehouse and back stock the freight. I love working early shifts so I can get out at a decent time. I love working with other people in the morning.

Pros

always busy, healthcare for part time

Cons

short shifts, not enough hours
