Thread: Went to a job interview OC
I've been retired for about a month and a half now and I'm bored to tears. So I I decided to apply for a job at the Cabelas gun counter. I filled out all the info online and sent a copy of my resume. I got the call this morning and had a decision to make. Do I not carry to avoid any problems, or do I stand by my beliefs. Well I carried and the interview went great. They had me fill out a bunch of forms and take a drug test(no problems there) and told me to be looking for a call in 1-2 weeks. I'm pretty pumped. I can't carry while on the clock(corporate policy) but other than that I am good to go. And the best part... I don't need to job, I want the job. I'm just bored and I wanted the discount!

Awesome, I'm jealous!
I would never suggest pocket carrying a couple of loaded mags for something always available, easily accessible that is behind counter for in the event a BG enters the store and starts shooting. No never would I suggest that. I also wouldn't suggest engraving the mags with your name to prove they are indeed yours and not the store's.

That's odd, most gun stores require their employees to carry.
Guns don't kill people, bullets do!
Congrats on the new job!! Now just don't turn into one of those know-it-all gun store types.
I see Cabela's more as a outdoor retailer than a gun store, I am not surprised that they do not allow employees to carry. I am not familiar with any large companies that allow employees to carry. While I disagree, I suppose they see it as an insurance liability or an increased potential for workplace violence.
Most true gun stores are small and privately owned, thus the individual owners are free to make their own choice which is why you see most gun store employees carrying.

Yeah, I don't mind. It's a private company. I'm just excited for the discount. And hopefully knowing when the ammo get's stocked!

Congrats. Always good to see someone stand up for their beliefs instead of bending over to please others.
If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

Wish you the best of luck! Thanks for carrying on!
Nice! Few places where a person can OC while on the clock!
Congrats if you do get the job. Its a vastly different 'head' when its your choice to work and not HAVE to work. I too am retired and working at my trade of 35 yrs with a good friend. We work on our terms when we want and for whom we want. I do not suffer fools well at my age any more. I don't have too and neither do you should the young corporate district manager care to show you whos boss, who has no clue as to how to treat employees with respect, and thinks his degree makes him superior to all he over sees. Believe me, I've been there and it will happen to you at some time in your working future there. Be prepared and hand him a sucker and tell him to go play some where else. The look on his face will be priceless.
Good luck! As far as retail goes, "Embrace The Suck!" will be the motto of the day.
Be safe, be prepared, and carry on!
