Fudge Outfitter (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 October 2017
The scheduling left a little to be desired but overall not a bad place to work. The regular staff are fun to work with but I feel management did not always stand behind their staff and looked at the numbers than the people.
Long run of shifts sometimes..and then some too short.
While I am fine with a fast pace and a changing environment, too often there is weak leadership from above resulting in change just for the sake of change before figuring out the causes and possible fixes for issues. This results in redoing work or doing work that then is shelved so you end up wasting time. There is NO TIME to be wasting time. Having said that, there are many MANY coworkers so you are assured to find people you like and enjoy working with.
great co-workers but horrible management, favoritism was clearly shown. The workload itself was good, had opportunities for overtime that seemed to be not offered to everyone. limited opportunity for growth.

Cabela's has a great work/life balance and are very flexible when it comes to working nights and time off. Day in the life at Cabela's is assisting on cash when required, slow time is January, February and March, so we don't have the hours and the Leads (Supervisor's) are helping on cash. I am responsible for doing the weekly schedules and my husband works away a lot so they are flexible when the time comes as we have a little man at home. They have a fun work balance, but know when to be serious. The hardest part about the company, is that there is not much room to move up, as the management team don't transfer and growth.
Flexibility around my husband's schedule when he travels
Fudge Shop Attendant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 February 2017
Overall a fun place to work making fudge however policies and standards are not followed and therefore staff stand around and do nothing while other staff work very hard. Very hard to deal with management due to favoritism.
Backroom Team Member (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 February 2017
Cabela's was my first job, so the environment it offered almost instantly was a very friendly and helpful area for me to be myself and actually get the job done and still be smiling by the end of the day. The Cabela's name is one that they take pride in and take care of the employees as well, like for Christmas everyday they had something new and fun going on for those who were working.
Great work environment, employees are all very enjoyable
Outfitter (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 31 January 2017
its a really fun place to work. They reword good work and have really great courses where you learn allot. I sadly could only stay on for my three month term, i missed to many shift and they let me go. but i still really liked it, and respect them. I was young. live and learn.
during my stay I had the pleasure to work with some amazing people, we had great events for employees which was much appreciated but some supervisors showed favoritism. at some point I witnessed people being discriminated and terminated for no real reason which labor laws were definitely violated.
great employee discounts, amazing coworkers
favoritism, some managers are bad for the employees.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 November 2016
Everyone is very friendly expect for management, they don't know what they are doing nor will help you in time of need, they like to pin jobs on everyone else so they can hang out in the office, if they don't like you your pretty much not getting any shifts and they will push you out regardless of a good job you do.
Gun Counter Representative (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 October 2016
I was impressed as a customer prior to working there and I am equally as impressed now having worked there month 6 months so far. Management is accommodating and they work to make sure their employees work in a healthy, happy environment.
Working for Cabela's had many great benefits. There are some gaps in the way the business is run as the brand is being built up in Canada. I relished the opportunity to learn and work within a great growing company. Ultimately the job wasn't for me under the circumstances in which I was working
Lot of great benefits, generally good atmosphere around the office
Sales Associate and Task Team (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 September 2016
Great place to work! has a very strong corporate structure and many knowledgable employees. Hardest part of the job can be the amount of knowledge thats required to work in certain departments. Although many employees will help you with any information, they also provide vendor training to keep you updated with all the new products.
Overall, not a bad place to work. People are friendly. Management could use a few courses on respect,integrity and professionalism. I was an administrative assistant in the warehouse(the one that they shut down in march of 2015). You really cant apply at the warehouse anymore but can apply at the call center/headoffice on DeBeates. Some people from the warehouse now work there so beware.
