Realizing week after week that much of my store there are new faces that were not there a few months ago. There are long time employees here still, but almost 50% of the outfitters here now were not here last fall. Is this a screaming indicator time... read more
All Sidney corporate employees will be facing 30% salary cut beginning this week
So what’s the latest headcount now? Fall time will probably be the final round I suppose.
On top of the Cabela's job losses, the farmers are now facing low wheat, soybean and corn prices...and high Diesel costs. Boy, NG
Did they, the pilots, and mechanics all go to Springfield?
Rumor rampant at corporate is that the VPs they put in from Cabela’s are restructuring their areas to bring friends in as directors and managers from Cabela HQ Sidney and eliminate current Bass Pro directors and managers. If true will affect IT... read more
Some of the houses for sale on Zillow might be deals in the next year. Can you even find affordable real estate within a 2.5 hour drive of Denver? Some enterprising tech company might start thinking about making a deal with Sidney to bring in jobs... read more

Some rumors circulating about May layoffs, anybody here heard anything about it?
Before I was let go, I had several conversations with vendors that said they refused to do business with BP. I guess many of these vendors had bad dealings with BP/JM. Also heard on the clothing side that Cabela’s private label clothing will see a... read more
Bass pro ran a ad in the wall street journal at a cost of more then 100 thousand dollars to try and attract business to Sidney to rent one of their buildings for one dollar a year. I think this action by the city council in regard to the purchase of... read more
I have been a very positive supporter of all of Cheyenne county and Cabela's for years. However this action by the city of Sidney just seems like their isn't any hope for the city of Sidney any more.
For corporate, continue to be on the look out for monthly layoffs, as BP absorbs/understands more of Cabela’s operations. Corporate layoffs will continue till August or until BP hits the final number of corporate employees needed, which that... read more
You know, it came to me today that it has been months since I've had a proper weekend where I was able to truly relax and recharge my batteries. Instead, I keep stressing and worrying and wondering is this the week they'll let us know even more cuts... read more
Are we are attracting cheap customers or ones with money to spend? I just don't get our purpose anymore.
Since Feb. 1st and March 1st were job loss days, anyone in the know for April? Retail stores and some of the jobs Cabela's has but Bass Pro doesn't. Respond if you know anything.

Recently the Sidney school board met to discuss ways to lower spending to address the economic situation in Sidney Nebraska. . This is just a start however it is a step in the right direction. This policy also need to be followed by the city of... read more
Can we expect more layoffs next week or was the past few days it for now?
What a fitting tribute to the legacy! Brown nosed minions that sunk the ship are left to finish the ride to the bottom! Now they will surely start feeding on them selves!
Come on folks. You all out of made up stuff to post here? Nobody hear that the post office is closing next yet? Im so disappointed in the lack of creativity lately.
I know I read that Johnny is offering to another business for $1 a year (I guess so he avoids paying property tax on it). So after most people take the buyout package isn't the building going to be fairly empty. Are they going to move the remaining... read more
has NOT always been honest with everyone on this board. While he says he's only here to be positive and support everyone during this hard time, it seems he has his own agenda. He has a large stake in Sidney real estate and can't leave or... read more
And posts comments pretending to be a regular employee. They will always post overly positive comments and attack anyone who doesn't tow the corporate line. They hate this site because it destroys their BS corporate speak and exposes what's really... read more
I was often upset over the years with so many of the negative comments which seemed to follow no logic at all on this site. I was talking to a few people from the Denver area who stated this guy isn’t serious in his negative posts he just is trying... read more
The company gives you a paycheck, right?
Sooooo? How many people actually turned in their packets? Some of the higher up folks in IT took it. Kinda funny how they were all excited a month ago after the Cabelas CIO became the CIO for the combines company and Cabelas IT people wee jumping for... read more
D--k's Sporting Goods ends assault-style weapon, high-capacity magazine sales. Hey Bass Pro/Cabelas, get on board or get run over. It's about time to stop selling these!
