I can think of several quality people that were treated like crap only because they did not golf, drink, or agree with the right insider. Managers who treated people with dignity were replaced by brown noses who shamelessly followed a VP around like... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Cabela's Inc.
The core problem is that leadership gave up years ago - the stores are a disaster - terrible - the staff is cut to shreds, no motivation from the top besides threats of replacement - lay offs, sales are in the tank, low inventories and a joke to the... read more
The petition would say basically to open our council meeting UP to interaction between the city council and the pubic. (SOMETHING WHICH HAS BEEN DONE AT EVERY COUNCIL MEETING IN THE HISTORY OF SIDNEY NEBRASKA Before ED SADLER AND I THINK IS DONE AT... read more
What is unfortunate is two fold: The city of Sidney is running the budget like Tommy did - absolutely no regard for reality ( unfortunately there is no Bass Pro to bail them out) Secondly, this fiscal disregard is a continuing problem that will no... read more
I wonder considering the economic state of Sidney if these policy's by the CFO of the city of Sidney is right for today. A The new budgeting style does not signal any changes in city administration . the city isn't planning on downscaling anything... read more
Our town's financial director even said so. Check out Sidney's local newspaper today in "City adopts 5-year budget" . He quotes, "With Cabela's having rounds of layoffs....." Great.
the stock is acting really squirrely right now...something is up. I think it's more than the negative article that recently was posted.
The Cabela's employees have obviously been through a wild time this past couple of years...more if you actually knew they were lying to you. I am curious if the employees that are still there, are you still giving your job 100%? Is the company making... read more
Maybe it won't be that bad to find work after this whole tragedy falls into place. This is the news: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/never-harder-fill-job-america-155558184.html Plenty of jobs out there. Maybe some of us will have to move, but you... read more
Get out of retail while you can! Bass Pro even fired Santa! Egads
Who got laid off today? Rumor has it that there will be a lot of layoffs by Monday... Gotta love town gossip.
It's a business. Plain and simple. Just because it was founded by two nice brothers from Nebraska doesn't change that. They weren't saints they made a lot of money off the backs of others...as do all business men. As a business...it was not looking... read more
This is a complete failure of leadership. Once fully entrenched and on the downward, who would want to come on a failing bandwagon - this is pure failure of leadership - nothing less - the vision of successful companies is growth and if the current... read more
I am so sick of the posters on this website to continue to insult the memory of D--k Cabela and those who said he was off base in saying that your treat your customer and your employees right and the rest in regard to ownership will fall into place... read more
Once the sale goes through and Cabela's is bought out, does the anti-compete go away and do we have the option to go anywhere? Seems like that would be the decent thing to do.
Cabela's may continue to cut payroll to minimize the bleeding, but BP has no authority or input until the deal is finalized. BP folks may wonder the stores and the corporate hallways, but until some money changes hands, they are just spectators. If... read more
Don't get me wrong, I worked for Cabela's for many years and have a lot of close friends affected by this deal. That being said, at the end of the day, Tommy did what he was brought on to do and that was to make shareholders money. And it wasn't... read more
I've heard a lot about legacy and grand visions on this site . Now, Johnny Morris...he has a legacy to be proud of. He didn't sell his town out. He didn't sell his employees out. His name will live on for decades. The Cabela's name will be thrown on... read more
Shocking news that shareholders approved merger.LOL
Heard that liquidators were in Short Pump, VA today preparing to bid on inventory. The property was sold to a Insurance company last week due to the CAB fallout.
I really hope after next week Bass Pro starts cleaning house of all the salaried managers who hide when they should be on the floor helping. Our place is understaffed and not a manager to be found when help is requested.
Why so many issues with Kronos? Anyone from IT here - can you tell me why is it so hard to use, why so many limitations and above all: WHY IS THE KRONOS SYSTEM SO SLOW. Sorry, every time I bring this up people just look at me - and nobody has ever... read more
It's over - a true American Icon will and actually is history. Many wonderful memories of being a part of D--k and Jim's vision and belief in building success and offering great products to sportsmen and women around the world While so sad that a... read more
delay and allow this once proud company to continue free-falling, they may be able to renegotiate. If the merger does not occur as planned, CAB stock price will plummet to level of Sears and JCP.
All of upper management (think executives) will be gone once the ink is dry on the purchase and the share price has been paid--that was part of the agreement. The VPs, Sr. Directors, Directors, etc. may be kept for a time, but I would presume they... read more
Love for outdoor recreation brought us here and gave us an opportunity - some of which have remained in the stores 7+ years. Am I the only one feeling incompetent for an upcoming job search? Regret for showing the company loyalty? Anxious about my... read more
How soon do employees expect a layoff?
They had houses that they could still sell and a headstart on a new future.
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/antitrust-regulators-sign-off-cabelas-161353636.html FTC approves the Cabela's deal! That's a huge win for Tommy Milner.
So I am a bit new to this conversation but am in the outdoor industry. It was well known that Cabela's was a sinking ship for the past 4 years or so. Pretty much everything bad said on this site about the stores and merchandising is true according to... read more
It's about to get crazy. I would advise to uproot and move. Especially those that are young and can easily start a new chapter of your life. Even if BP merge goes thru, it will be such a bumpy road for you, and then in the end, only about 20% will... read more
Some of my co-workers are tending to believe that many big changes will happen rather quickly at our store after the official sale is done and over. I would be delighted if they start with upper management.
Hazelwood. In Springfield a guy walks out the front door with a tactical rifle in the middle of the day. Another site loses 22 handguns. I wonder what the ATF is thinking?
Honestly, who the eff is bidding on these? https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/auction/view?auc=1875410
Anyone who thinks that a sale to BP is bad should watch this. This is how bad things get if the deal doesn't go through. It could be fatal for Cabela's https://www.yahoo.com/finance/video/failed-walgreens-merger-sends-rite-130500575.html
Per Omaha World Herald deadline is July 5th for FTC approval
Will the bank be taking on less than stellar card customers once it is sold?
