  1. We Were Born to Work Here. Were You?

Event Details

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 Ottawa is currently hiring the following Outfitters and we would love to hear from you!

  • Backroom Lead

  • Backroom Department Manager

  • Customer Service Outfitter

  • Sales floor Outfitter (all departments)
