Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, plans to hire up to 250 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees to staff its new Charleston, W.Va., store scheduled to open this summer.
The store will be located in the Southridge Centre shopping area off U.S. Highway 119, and will be Cabela’s second retail store in West Virginia, joining the Wheeling location. It will showcase thousands of quality products, including hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor gear, as well as outdoor clothing, gifts and furnishings.
Interviews will begin April 23 and continue through April 28.
“We are looking for candidates who have a passion for the outdoors and are excited to share that passion with other people,” said Matthew Leary, general manager of the new store. “Cabela’s employees should be friendly, outgoing, committed to working as a team and represent the outdoor lifestyle in a positive way.”
Applications must be submitted online. Anyone interested in applying should visit http://www.cabelas.jobs, click on “Apply Now,” then “United States Jobs.” Then follow instructions to log in and complete the application process. Applying does not guarantee an interview.
Most employees are expected to come from Charleston and the surrounding area. Typically, Cabela’s attracts applicants with detailed knowledge about the outdoors and outdoor sports; and an aptitude for customer service.
“The Charleston area is a perfect fit for Cabela’s,” Leary said. “Not only will the store directly serve the Mountain State, it will serve the mid-Atlantic region, giving our loyal customers – and new customers – a store to call their own. Plus, they’ll get a first-hand look and feel of Cabela’s culture.”
