Not all of the Cabelas store firearms department managers have been terminated. I know for a fact that the one in KC made it through the storm.
I heard that Bass Pro Shops/Cabelas was going to cut back on all of their gun sales...given the current political climate, I guess that wouldn't be surprising. But they've terminated all of the Cabelas store firearms department managers already........ So I suspect that BPS management is just waiting until the next big gun incident to announce that they're eliminating the whole gun shebang, that way they won't look so bad with the Second Amendment crowd. They might keep the hunting rifles and shotguns....but the handguns and the ARs and the like are on the way out.
Tired of hearing bass pro is lean. Most are dealing with inept morons who have no idea what to do. Keep hearing the term sh-- show to describe the so called leanness.
Bass pro just laid off all HR managers accross the nation.
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.
Hell bp only lost hr managers yesterday. Cabela’s lost 4-8 managers/sales coaches per store. Bp is an evil freaking company and it won’t be around in 5 years! Can’t wait to sit back and watch the stores close one by one! Good riddance
I tried to warn all the hr managers with this post ... there’s more coming too.. it’s going to be very sad
Feb 1st Cabela’s changes are announced and go into effect for management.
Cabelas is getting ready to thin out their retail stores. Big changes in management structure.
