I have spent 11 years with Cabela’s and I was lucky to have good mentors, managers and I liked people I worked with. I enjoyed every day at work, customers were difficult sometimes but most of the time I was dealing with nice people who were into... — read more

This is a note that I gave to my General Manager on my last day of employment. Names have been changed due to privacy concerns. Craig, •A Dream Job When I started at this company, a little over three years ago, I was so caught up in the... — read more
•The “Merger” When the deal was finalized and Bass Pro Shops purchased Cabela’s, there were a lot of unknowns. We had great people that left due to that unknown. Who would have a job? What changes would be made? The inevitability of a... — read more

•The downward spiral Management was cut; we lost some of the last few leaders that kept the store from crumbling. I’ll agree that most of the layoffs were good decisions on your part, but there were a few questionable employees kept on board. Amy... — read more
2015 2nd quarter earnings coming out 7/23/15 don't look good. Knee jerk reaction to appease stock holders. Management restructuring, FT hours once set at 40, reduced to 32. Hiring frozen. Some lead positions eliminated. New structure is almost... — read more

Corporate is doing everything possible to support the outfitters.
We are becoming a self service big box and most of us do not know how long we will have a job. People who want to work here should know that.
Tommy Boy won't be happy until he buries Cabelas like he did Remington. Stocks are down about $30 from 15 months ago. The axes started wielding again at most stores. Best Buy, beware, your his new target.
Hate it when they short staff the place and the checkout lines are long. You get a manager paging for all register trained people to get up front Immediately, but they don't come down to help. What ever happened to the good old days when the managers... — read more
There are several useless positions in the store. PTS (product training specialist) for starters. Really, what a waste of 40 hours. Price change team. 90% of any price changes and/or ads are done by the dept leads anyways. Then we have a space... — read more
Management said to show "aggressive hospitality" to customers to get them to get club cards. That's an oxymoron and it's just going to push customers away. I work in an office in one of the stores and there is a guy that's threatened me multiple... — read more

Will be laying off 50 manager/corp people today 9/23/15
Cabelas knew Months ago that they would not be able to fill the jobs they had projected when building a new building. The truth is Cabelas was a good company that grew too fast with outdated practices and in the process became bloated with useless... — read more
Building a new corporate headquarters, and a big housing development and just laid off 70 employees today with rumors of more in the coming months. Doesn't make a bit of sense.
I do not work there, just stumbled upon here (I work for an O&G company) - why do you have so many layoffs lately? — read more
We sell the same made in China crap that everyone else does, we just charge more for it and the customer to get our credit card. The only way I would invest in the stock is to option it short.
Regional levels are a waste of payroll dollars. Burtch is so into his self that it is sickening. Fuller is miserable, cocky back stabbed. Burtch and Fuller better watch out you are both next! Bye bye! — read more
Cabela's corporate has made the decision to eliminate store detectives at what they call low risk stores. This means corporate is willing to accept the losses as long as it does not exceed the salaries of the store detectives they laid off.
So a couple of weeks ago sixty some people are laid off at corporate and now when you look at the website there are 16 jobs posted at the very location where people were walked out the door. Makes no sense to me.
What's up with that? Guess they didn't like us borrowing money interest free.
I think we're all in agreement that this steaming dung pile of a company is going down faster than the Hindenberg. I just need to understand something from another perspective. I work at one of the DCs, in Retail filling. We are overworked like you... — read more
