Cabela's closes call center


Cabela’s will be consolidating its Sidney Call Center with the existing North Platte Call Center, effectively closing the local location.

The Sidney Call Center, located in the Quad Graphics building on east Illinois St., was not the only Cabela’s department affected by the corporate restructure.

According to Cabela’s Communication Specialist, Nathan Borowski, some of the teams on the Cabela’s corporate campus were also part of the restructure.

Borowski did not specify the departments affected but did say that it was still unclear how many jobs would be impacted by the change. Employees will have the opportunity to move to, or apply for, other positions within the company.

“We are working to finalize a list of open positions now. All open positions with the company will be posted next Monday, March 20,” Borowski said.

This is not the first wave of jobs to be impacted in efforts to make Cabela’s more efficient. In May of last year Cabela’s transitioned its creative services to an outside company, Quad Graphics.

In an earlier interview, Borowski said out of the 120 creative service employees 90 were offered positions with Quad Graphics, five were offered positions within Cabela’s and three retired at that time.

“There were some impacted Outfitters who did not apply for positions with Quad Graphics,” Borowski said.

According to Borowski, the restructure is not related to the company’s sale to Bass Pro, which is set to be completed by October pending review by federal regulators.

Borowski said he can not say if there will be more restructuring in the future.

“The company is always looking for ways to be more efficient,” he said.
