Thread regarding Bass Pro Shops layoffs

Being privately owned opposed to publicly owned allowed BPS to make moves to adjust to the industry.

The Cabelas folks trolling this site should look down the posts a couple years ago when 4 to 8 managers were let go at every store. Yes Cabelas folks lost their jobs yesterday, and it is sad for those individuals, but from what I hear and see, there is a lot of excess employees on the Cabelas payroll.

No one likes to see someone lose their job they have sunk their heart and soul into, but business is business especially once it goes on a national scale. Cabelas came from family roots, and they prospered under that leadership, but it appears when they went public, things changed. BP would not have had a chance to buy Cabelas if they hadn't read the writing on the walls about how retail has evolved and adjusted accordingly.

Being privately owned opposed to publicly owned allowed BPS to make moves to adjust to the industry. I don't know much about Cabelas, but I do know that most the people I deal with seem to be a manager of something, and it takes 4 meetings and 20 people to make a simple decision.

If being lean and agile constitutes an evil company, then so be it.

Again, I feel for the ones let go, and any Cabelas employee who has been let go or may be let go. I hope the poster who called BPS evil, just is angry at the situation and realizes life happens and sometimes its good, sometimes not, but life goes on.

Sorry, I am the poster in the other thread. Someone else copied and posted it under its own thread, so I can see your frustration and confusion, as most posters on the site are anonymous. I'm not sure why they would have wanted it under its own thread.

I take no offense to the name calling :-)

Good old southern hospitality and Christian greed! Luke 12:15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
