Any update on layoffs that where going to happen around this time? I would figure if something where to happen, it would be after the holiday. Hearing managers talk about corporate HR visiting stores in my district this month. I’m on edge and... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Bass Pro Shops
I work the register and have to deal with the people that don’t want to wear masks. When I ask them to put one on because it’s required in our state they cuss me out and call me all different types of names. They sometimes call either the GM, the... — read more
Good club card day=smiles and jokes Bad club card day=yelling, stomping and rearranging displays for no reason This cannot continue.
i worked for a mass retailer before joining bass pro. I don't see how they stayed in business so long with the old systems, poor replenishment process. Process other companies was using ten years ago haven't even came to Bass Pro. Every year the... — read more
Just learned that one guy is store manager in three stores. Gainesville Fl, Macon Ga and Savannah Ga. The stores are all at least 3 to 4 hours apart. How will this work out?
Sadly this company has gone into the toilet when it used to be the best place to work in retail. My store is now a joke and everyone hates it there now. They lecture about club constantly and they lecture about stocking and all they care about is... — read more
I don’t know if this is just my district or if this is company wide. Some older leads have been let go of have been offered demotions with a pay cut. Younger part time (probably min wage) are then being hired to fill in positions. The leads that are... — read more
Just heard from a few managers that was fired today. Company is going down. Who will be left to run stores.
I'm telling you, we'd go better if they all quit and no replacements were put in place! That's how much they contribute to the proper functioning of this company!
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
They are laying off all leads and assist Myers and full timers!! We just got word from HO and they can’t pay insurance. They are getting rid of excessive HR personnel, inventory shipment members and office workers. It does seem fair as we have seen... — read more
I have hears some rumors of additional reductions coming up in the next couple of weeks. Potentially more management, admin and HR. Anyone hearing anything about this or is it purely rumor?
Cut payroll, fire people who know anything about hinting, fishing, or camping. Get a bunch of cheap managers who are obedient. Pay minimum wage to the low ranks and who cares if they can help customers or not. Fire them and hire new mo–ns. Stock... — read more
Our store hasn’t fed the fish in almost two weeks and they are starting to die. Idk if this is a company thing or our store manager is a lunatic and is cheap as hell right now.
Any actual evidence for layoffs next month? I’m a lead for one of the southern stores and things have been a sh– show. Our store started to do call backs this weekend after running on a skeleton crew the past month. Is there a real timetable for any... — read more
When is the layoff of FT employees to be announced? I'd like to know the same thing. Any info would be appreciated.
I've read people say that they've been threatened with retribution if they decide to stay home even if it was said we are allowed to. Is this true?
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
but it looks like I am being called back now. Has anyone else been called back sooner than expected?
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
Lets not worry about employees well being. Where is the money going to come from for Anglers in the Bahamas, National Turkey Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mntn. Elk Foundation , NASCAR, NRA ? Millions of dollars wasted so Johnny can... — read more
I’m happy for the chance to be working and making money. I feel like closing would only add to my problems, unemployment would be a short band aid and then I’d be trying to fend for myself. I work with a lot of coworkers who feel the same. A lot can... — read more
Go back and look at what we borrowed to purchase Cabelas. According to news stories we borrowed 2.4 Billion from Goldman Sachs and a private equity firm to buy them. Those bills have to be paid, no matter how bad sales get. So i think we will cut... — read more

I can't afford to lose my job right now, not for a week, not to mention a month or more. I keep thinking I am safe (even if I am exposed to the coronavirus risk every day) but then I keep hearing about people losing their jobs constantly. Two here... — read more
To all you guys above stating all the virus is just a basic flu and calling everyone out for panicking are selfish and you are the ones who are narrow minded. Do you not realize that people have died from this virus all over the world. Sure keep Bass... — read more
I have 80 hours of vacation + 55 or so hours in sick leave I can use. And that is AFTER the 80 hours of additional covid-19 PTO that they seemed to have given me. Just learned of this. I feel very well taken care of. I can work and save my time or... — read more

Our manager concerns us an “essential” retailer! That’s is why we won’t close. The only thing we are selling is guns. Half the customers we have got don’t even know anything about guns. We are profiting off the fear of the population. We are all... — read more
I work at bass pro and the mall next to us is closed. Management doesn't care for their outfitters, where is management? at home taking care of themselves not caring about us. We just have greedy people who think ammunition and firearms are... — read more
I work for this company and asked Human Resources to please close the stores. I expressed my concern that people like myself are in the higher risk category and shouldn't be here. I said as long as the store is open we feel obligated to go to work... — read more
We can't afford to hire help or fix anything, but once again we are p***ing away money in a sport with declining attendance and TV viewership. I just don't get it.
