Just heard from a few managers that was fired today. Company is going down. Who will be left to run stores.

What an embarrassment

This chain cares more about the sale of a gun than the well being of its employees. Period. The employees who did not get furloughed DID NOT receive 2 weeks pay or a temporary pay raise. NOTHING. Disgraceful. Shame on you Bass Pro. To tout that... —  read more

The company doesn’t care

Two of my coworkers were laid off on friday. Of course,the layoffs had nothing to do with the performance of these guys or their conduct at work. What sickens me the most is the fact that these guys, along with the rest of us are the people that are... —  read more

Then just quit. If you’re really scared you are going to die just quit. Anyone thinking Johnny Morris owes them anything is being naive. Everybody complaining on here can make the decision for themselves not to work for someone they clearly blame for... —  read more
