Since I am not looking for a job.......spent almost 30 years as an underwriter and work as Town Clerk in my town (kinduv an early retirement job).....I wanted to work for Cabelas and I really did not even consider the discount.....I have more than enough 'stuff' already and $25 off a pr of waders is not worth considering nor would a few boxes of ammo.....that's right, I wanted to be part of Cabelas.....unfortunately for Cabelas I am worth alot more than an annual gross under $23k.....especially when you consider the responsibility and detailed excellence when tracking firearms and their paperwork.
I really am surprised and somewhat disturbed by what I found out. Cabelas is supposed to be, and I always believed to be, the premier outdoors outfitter. Maybe for those of us who know what we want, but if they are hiring at such low earnings when a WalMart down the street is hiring greeters for $10.50 and floor at $12.35.........and we all know in general the quality of expertise a floor person at WalMart has....so basically Cabelas is saying they will take anyone.....and they offer no flexibility on hours. I even offered to work a couple nights a week and on Sundays but they want no less than 32 hrs on as part-time basis. That does not impress me although I can see this as a super way to earn a few dollars after full retirement and I might keep that option open in a few years.
Thanks to those offering input! :thumbsup:
