  1. Work With Us

Event Details

We were born to work here. Were you? 

Work hard, play hard. It’s a good motto to live by, though here at Cabela’s you might not be able to tell the two apart. In a place where work and play are two facets of the same single passion, work is more fun and play is more serious. We approach all of it with fanatic energy—whether we’re on the job, in the field, or on the water. Helping someone else enjoy a superb outdoor experience is just as satisfying as having one of our own. And if you share this passion, you’re family—no matter where you come from or where in the company you work.

Cabela's Nanaimo is currently hiring part-time outfitters and we would love to hear from you!
