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

Severance for sold people?

25 openings at the Allen store!!

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.

Strange source, but ok.

Party time in Hamburg

Company wide or just some stores? Power hour.

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

Hamburg lost a truely good mgr.She took care of her dept. She also stuck up for her employees! I guess that was her downfall!! She wasn't one of the corporate PUPPETS either! I forgot the GM Scott didn't like her, so now she's gone! Thanks Scott!


I dedicated 10 years of hard work, long hours and commitment to Cabela's. I am gone now, laid off, but I feel just empty and dead inside. All that effort and stress for nothing really. I did get paid and worked with great people. I guess I drank the... read more

Hostile work environment.

From what I have heard the treatment of the current and past employees of Cabela's has been borderline excessive stress. I believe that recklessly creating undue stress in a work environment can be considered creating a hostile environment. As we all... read more
