Management layoffs at Cabela’s stores are being reported this week, months after finalizing a merger with Bass Pro Shops. In Bristol, Virginia, seven managers were sent packing. Across the Old Dominion in Richmond, reports of “staff adjustment” from a separate Cabela’s store made their way to local news. Bass Pro Shops says Cabela’s stores will see their overall staff sizes increase.
The strike: The layoffs appear to be centered around marketing managers and asset protection managers. According to Glassdoor.com, an average marketing manager at Cabela’s earns about $70K per year, while asset protection managers earn a base salary of $52K. Sales associates, cashiers and warehouse employees bring in about $10 per hour.
Bass Pro Shops has not yet responded to FTR requests for comment.
