Topics regarding layoffs at Cabela's Inc.
I remember a customer asking me point blank about some merchandise and looking for my opinion or advice on it since I am an "expert". I did not have the guts to tell them that you don't really get an expert when they are paid $9/hour. I tried my best... read more
It doesn't pay to give your heart and soul to any company. The company will just stomp on it and crush your spirit. Also, don't work extra hours and bust your ***- it only benefits the company and you end up feeling stupid.
Read the last paragraph. That's your answer. Since this was published in town it has to be accurate, right? www.ksidradio.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=37&id=230717#.WEHd_tBHaf0

Do not be concerned, things will play out good this year. But layoffs might be happening in Q1 here in Sidney.
What would you tell someone in a job interview if they asked why do you want to leave Cabelas? Let's assume you are not being laid off. Could you tell a white lie and say to the interviewer that due to the BP buy-out your job is being re-classified... read more

What do ya'll think they will do with corporate headquarters once BPS takes over? Looks like a great satellite campus to me!
I feel trapped working here. I look around and see others I feel are trapped.
The numbers are so bad So much debt. Even afterhearing, "don't worry, guys, we are in a great situation with debt, we are the leaders in the industry". It makes sense that the e-team, the board would all be willing to shuttle things around, hide the... read more
In the past all we wanted was that they take their dump or get off the pot. Now all we want is now that they've taken their dump get out of the stall. Let's clean up their mess and get back to doing business.
Why move jobs from salary to hourly pay? This way Cabela's can cut hours and not jobs? Or force the hand of employees with this move, so the employees part of the move decide to quit and save Cabela's/BP the opportunity to pay a severance package?
Any thoughts on what will happen to the Cabela's headquarters north of our border?
I'm just curious to know how many people in both Sidney and here in the stores are going to hold out and see what happens in the Spring, or who has already started looking for new jobs?
No wonder there was such a huge focus on the golden parachutes. What business is going to be interested in hiring any the leadership team win this is the interpretation of the results:... read more
Would it be out of the kindness of their heart. I'm sure Goldman Sachs accounted for the sale of the Sidney corporate headquarters in order to fund the purchase of Cabela's. I would think bass pro would sell most Sidney real estate. Keeping employees... read more
Hello coaches. Thoughts on this?
Well, that was a rough earnings call. I guess we don't care about GM% anymore, but love how TM can spin everything like it's a success and part of the plan. Guess they're just throwing in the towel for the next 4.5 months. If I was a vendor I'd be... read more
Managers are explaining that the summit sale has nothing to do with getting rid our inventory. It's a "way to show our gratitude to our outfitters". Yea, guess we all have stupid written across our forehead. We will see what type of gratitude they... read more

Outfitters who work for Cabela's put Mary D--k and Jim up on a pedestal. Tommy is the fall guy for everything. He's the big bad Wolf. They can't see how the Cabela's family screwed over the entire town of Sidney. Tommy plays the bad guy for an $8... read more
They are allowing summit pricing on Cabelas brand stuff from beginning of November to end of December. Trying to clear out merchandise to make way for newer branded items?
How many millions of $$ was wasted on the tractors?
"We don't want to spend money on technology". Instead you promoted your buddies. " Tractors are a great idea". Every outfitter except the exec team thought the opposite. "We'll fill that new building and expand". How about seeing some expansion... read more
