Thread regarding Bass Pro Shops layoffs

Any changes or resolutions yet?

From what I’ve read and what I hear the management is dreadful at the Macon location. I know a higher up HR figure came to the store and I wanted to know if anything had changed or been resolved? Did many people meet with HR while they were there? If this many people are having similar issues something’s gotta give.

The Macon Ga store has lost a lot of great employees since the two store mangers were brought in the replace one awesome store manager. I worked at the Macon store for over 10 years until these id--ts decided to terminate my employment. The store staff gave these two plenty of room to treat the employees with respect, but if the market manager did not like the way you perform he would not hesitate in yelling or belittle you on sales floor. I miss the store staff and I really enjoyed working there especially during Christmas.

Nothing has been done after the HR person left, the managers were so nice to everyone while she was here, a lot of people went in and talked to her for over an hour on some, a lot of people who wanted to take did not get time because of this, but I feel she got enough information, but still nothing has been done to them.
HR asked if this was the way they acted and the ones she asked told her NO this was a put on for them.
We still have people leaving and this place is really in no shape to be open, we have no people working no cashiers maybe 11 and most of them call out a lot the front end LEAD calls out all the time which puts others in a bind as they have to come to work later if this person was to work the morning and evening. They are trying to hire but sh-t no one wants to work here. I would leave if I have not put in almost 15 years but if I can find something that will match my pay and benifits I am gone also, we are so unhappy here, we use to love our jobs, until these 2 came in.

I honestly wouldn't try to even get a job at macon bass pro right now. 4 employees quit this week alone. The few that are there either don't care about thier employees, bully them until they leave or are boot lickers. There are very few good people there right now and even they are contemplating leaving.

I think 9 months is plenty of time to give new management a chance. The employees who have been there awhile and the new employees are all leaving. We had a hunting lead quit after 2 days because of the management. We all know exactly who the problem is and we know nothing will be done about it. We just come in to make our money and go home. There is no more positive energy left in the place. It is just a sad place to work.

Honestly I read a lot about the southern stores, either a lot of people don’t know about this site or they don’t bother to respond. My store is in the Midwest. The lack of leadership in my store is perplexing. Upper management is completely hands off unless it’s the morning meeting and we get chastised for not having enough CLUB applications or gear guard or the outdoor fund. What happened to taking care of the customers needs and making sure they had a great experience from the outfitters. Still hate they changed us from associates. I had a situation over a year ago contacted the so called secure 800 number for outfitters. Had one phone call returned. Was told they would get back to me? Still waiting... I would love the opportunity to speak directly with John. I really believe he has no idea what’s really going on his stores. It’s very sad to see this wonderful empire crumbling to the ground. Used to be the best place to work!

It's the tenured employees mostly complaining about the newer management team and the new HR. Instead of actually giving them a chance, most of the store had issues with them simply because they were chosen to replace their predecessors. And nothing they have done has ever been good enough. They listen to rumors and gossip and take it as gospel.

Unemployment from all the southern stores is atrocious. I see a lot of activity from that Macon store on here but maybe it’s just because you still have old guard employees. My store in Florida has just about no one left management wise since the holiday of last year. This company’s structure is struggling. It’s also been the worst sales for my store in the past 10 years so I don’t expect anyone (at least in the south) to get better.
