I retired from a company after 37 1/2 years, wanting to do something for a short time. Bass Pro is a good place to work (I was seasonal) . Management was friendly and amendable to schedule (somewhat). I was treated fairly and may have tried to stay on. I was offered a job more like the one I left at a much higher pay rate. When I "retire" from this one I may look to Bass pro again.

Pros and Cons
I was talking fishing most of the day!
Cons are..it is retail, black Friday, and Christmas you are very busy. other than that it is slow
