Fun place to work if you live close

Great place to work if you live close but don't get paid enough if you live farther than 30 min. After then gas is just too expensive to commute. Thats why I had to leave after I moved farther away.

Awful Workplace

Staff barely trains you and leaves you to yourself. Only get one weekend off a month and don't give you proper benefits for 90 days. Will be leaving as soon as I can

Fun workplace

Most of the management team was good! The pay and often raises made it worth it. Most of the co workers are friendly. Downsides- seem to be stuck in your position. Some managers sucked

Overall good workplace

Overall good workplace and good people. The job requires you to assist in more than just your own department, even though the job application is just one department only.

Low pay. Poor Morale.

Low pay and poor hours. Favoritism. Bad morale. Difficult schedule. Liked other employees. Employee Discount was awesome. Casual attire. No more for advancement.

Good place

Was a good place to work at when I worked there. Nothing was hard about the job. As long as you can help customers even when in the warehouse you’d be fine.

Bad management and bad pay

Training is basically non existent. I often feel like I don’t have the tools and knowledge to complete my work. Hours have been cut drastically and the pay is terrible. Would only recommend as a retirement job.

Very average retail position. Hiring process was quick and easy. Decent pay, laid back environment. You can get good discounts on major brands. Flexible scheduling

Good culture and environment, a lot of younger college aged coworkers. Management seems to change a good amount, it is still retail though so hours aren’t the best.

Fun with little reward

Super fun job with a friendly environment! The only real downside is the pay is rather low (even for retail work). There are ways to supplement this by doing extra work and taking on multiple roles.

Worried about production and bonus

Long hours, especially during holiday peak season. Upper management worried about production and making a bonus. Not willing to work with other departments.

Easy work but a lot of hours

The work is easy but there is a lot of overtime. I also wish the schedule was Monday-Friday. The management seems to come and go. Overall this is a good job but not a career

Good work but it gets repetitive fast

Your coworkers will quickly become friends however some of the leads and sypervisors can be hard to work with. This jobs have long hours either a 10 hr shift or a 12 hr one. You do not have the whole weekend off. Either working Sunday or Saturday.


Good benefits


Have to work either Saturday or Sunday

Is a good place to work

It is a good and fun place to work. Hours were not bad. Pay could always be better but it was in line for what you had to do. All the managers were great and good to work with


Managers tried to make it as fun as they could


could always pay better

Management doesn’t care about you.

Regardless of what department you’re in the management doesn’t care about you. You can be a star worker and give your all, but if they don’t like you as a person they will be shady and scummy. They’ll hire you if you’re disabled, then make you do work that you physically can’t do, then make fun of you for not being able to do it. The benefits are amazing, you can’t go wrong with that. But for your sanity I’d just apply at the Bass Pro Shop. GM and AGM are godsends though. Amazing people


Benefits, discounts

Flexible scheduling

Coworkers make the work less boring and worthwhile. Flexible schedule so you can enjoy a work/life balance.

Fun workplace! Pay scale is horrible

It can be. fun place to work but rules and policies change on. daily basis. They don’t pay long term employees what they are worth bring New people off the street making the same or more money than long term employees.

Horrible management

HR and upper management is a joke. The turn over rate is ridiculous because there is absolutely no work life balance. They force you to work upwards of 65+ hours a week November-January with no approved time off. Trying to move up with this company is hard. But you become pretty close with the people you work with because of the amount of hours you spend with them.

Fun workplace, got to play with expensive toys

Cabela's had an employee discount, but the low pay of the job meant I couldn't actually use my discount. Archery Technicians, firearms, and anyone handling weaponry should've been paid more as they worked a more advanced job. Some of the bows and crossbows I worked on costed upwards $2000 and if I made a mistake it could've costed someone their life. That said...I took full advantage of the archery range, and got to learn more about things I enjoyed.


Discount, fun atmosphere, access to toys I couldn't afford


Low pay

Productive and fun!

Amazing staff. Lenient on schedule. Very understanding management and patient. Everyone wants to help each other out. Can be stressful during the holidays.
