Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s hiring for holiday help


Bass Pro Shops is looking to hire approximately 7,000 seasonal workers across North America, including at its West Chester Twp. Cabela’s store and its Forest Park Bass Pro Shops location inside Forest Fair Village.

MORE: Several local stores to close Thanksgiving Day. Here’s the list.

On-site interviews will be held during normal business hours Oct. 18 at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s locations across the United States and Canada. Several dozen positions are expected to be added at Cabela’s, 7250 Cabela Drive, West Chester Twp., and Bass Pro Shops, 300 Cincinnati Mills Drive, Forest Park, company officials told the Journal-News.

Seasonal positions are available in the company’s retail locations, restaurants, contact centers, distribution centers and boat dealerships.

Interested candidates can apply in advance by visiting basspro.com/careers or cabelas.jobs. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Holiday shoppers less likely to procrastinate this season

While the majority of available positions are seasonal and part-time, qualified candidates can be considered for full-time employment.

The hiring push comes as the company prepares for the busy holiday shopping season and the return of its popular Santa’s Wonderland experience, Bass Pro Shops’ signature free family holiday experience, for the 10th consecutive season.

All Cabela’s locations are participating in Santa’s Wonderland for the first time this year. The experience offers free photos with Santa, free crafts for children, special activities and games to celebrate the holiday season.
