Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s rewards team members with bonuses while increasing starting wages in key roles


Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s has issued companywide bonuses for its hourly front-line retail, distribution center and manufacturing plant team of $250, $500, $750 or $1,000 based on job role and seniority, representing a multimillion-dollar investment to reward its Outfitters and team members for their efforts.

Additionally, the company is raising nationwide starting wages in its distribution centers in an effort to continue attracting and rewarding the most passionate team members in the industry. Starting wages vary by market.

The company is actively hiring more than 5,000 team members to support Americans getting back to nature and spending time responsibly enjoying the great outdoors. With many traditional summer activities canceled or severely restricted, there is unprecedented interest in families and individuals returning to nature, where they can safely practice social distancing in activities like fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and boating.

The company offers flexible hours, holiday and vacation pay, paid leave, health, dental and life insurance programs for qualified team members, discounts including up to 45 percent on merchandise and savings at the company’s nature-based resorts, including the award-winning Big Cedar Lodge located in the heart of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains.

Bass Pro Shops is an equal opportunity employer and a drug-free workplace.
