Topics regarding layoffs at Cabela's Inc.
Was something announced or what, the stock took a huge jump up 2.5%. Hot sale on the company perhaps?
Anyone else hear about the new sales promotion going on until the end of the month? 10% off current prices (even if on sale) for ALL guns (new and used) and ammo. AND an additional 20% off for ALL Cabela's branded items (even if on sale).
We!ve heard how some of the other big box retailers are going to address the new law, as it applies to exempt employees, has anyone heard of how Cabela's may deal with it? One option is to raise any exempt's salary to the minimum threshold or another... read more
Gosh, Customer Service - now there's an approach we should try - seems like they want to revert back to what we were before we turned into a "corporate" entity and before we lost 90% of the employees that knew the product in their respective... read more
A store in the south opened to bright hopes, plenty of gun counter employee's, and gun library. NICS took care of getting the customer rang out. Then slowly at first employee's at all three locations were let go, then the firearm inspectors, all... read more
http://www.businessinsider.com/sears-workers-reveal-bad-workplace-2016-8 Food for thought. If Cabelas can not grow their business organically, they might have to merge or be bought out by BP to allow the company to stay open. Look at Sears. It is a... read more
First company (Pilliod Cabinet Company) - sold to Ladd Furniture: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/LADD+FURNITURE+TO+ACQUIRE+PILLIOD+CABINET+COMPANY-a014721169 Six months later he's off to start his second sale... Second Company (Remington Arms) - sold... read more
Corporate execs in stores. Store management in secretive meetings. Morale at all time low. Employees leaving in droves. Now they write up everyone for attendance like it's going out of style. And the scheduling is terrible. Availability sheets mean... read more
Any severance for those who were sold out beyond the paychecks to get them by in the sh--hole Sidney until September? (Good luck, folks!) It's too bad they don't give families enough to get the heck out of this place where they will not be able to... read more
Apparently at least one of the local news outlets in Sidney is NOT afraid to print the truth http://www.suntelegraph.com/story/2016/08/20/community/what-a-difference-a-year-makes/10243.html so many good peoples lives and futures destroyed by... read more
I have never worked anywhere with lazier managers. This is a Texas store so hopefully things are not the same all over but,,, I can go to lunch and see two to three posted up close to the front door and when I come back they are still there. Not... read more
Hey everyone, I saw on the Nebraska department of labor site that there's going to be 120 layoffs at Cabela's in Sidney on September 9. Does anyone know what jobs this will be affecting?... read more
Well we finally made it out of Sidney. It is very bittersweet that I say this, I leave behind friends that I have made. M home that I purchased for my family. A church home that I will miss greatly. I move on to a job that is significantly more... read more
Even if we sell the bank and buy back stock, we're selling the only part of the business that makes money. Still can't see this working out in the long run....
When you talk to people in your departments around the country, it seems panic has set in, and the workers are getting the heat of this insanity.
Most of these are directly attributable to the weekend availability change. Onboarding recruits costs MONEY and CAB is pissing it away while they drive off seasoned employees. Oh well.
One down. Now we need his girlfriend to leave.
That's the rumor. Anyone?
We have more positions open than ever it seems. The turnover is also pretty high. Are there too many other companies hiring and taking away potential applicants?
Strange source, but ok. http://baseballnewssource.com/markets/elliott-management-corp-buys-1881496-shares-of-cabelas-inc-cab/43655/
Just heard our GM Scott Johns is out of here August 1st!!! Good Luck Glendale hes a real gem. If we are lucky his sidekick hr manager will go with him.
Power hour between 11-3, No tasking just helping customers. Annoying the sh-- out of customers by asking them what brought you in today? Is this happening in all stores or is it just my store GM making us do this? Departments are looking like crap... read more
Departments are going to be short again this weekend. The front end will be calling for help all day and people will be leaving merch ln the floor and walking out. I think they are simply cutting labor to the bone and they have simply stopped caring... read more
This is a management team that has struggled with the basics of retailing: the stores are expensive to build and operate and the merchandise, while compelling, is not competitively priced. Surprise ! Surprise ! Surprise ! Not. I experienced the lack... read more
