SPRINGFIELD, Mo.  — Bass Pro Shops, North America’s premier outdoor and conservation company, is looking to hire thousands of seasonal workers to prepare for the busy holiday shopping season and the return of its popular Santa’s Wonderland experience. During a National Hiring Event on Thursday, October 17, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s locations across the U.S. and Canada will conduct on-site interviews from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The nearest Cabela’s location is at 7090 Cabela Drive NW, Huntsville, AL 35806, near the Bridge Street Town Centre.

Seasonal retail positions are available in all the company’s locations. Interested candidates can apply in advance by visiting basspro.com/careers. Walk-ins are also welcome.
