Staff at two of North America’s most iconic fishing and hunting chains have been rewarded with bonus payments for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The owner of Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s says that it is making payments ranging from $250 to $1,000 to hourly-paid workers in its retail, distribution centres and manufacturing plants to ‘reward its outfitters and team members for their efforts’.
The company has also announced that it is raising nationwide starting wages in its distribution centres.
“It is difficult to put into words how deeply proud we are of all our dedicated team members who have worked tirelessly on the front lines throughout this pandemic, showing up every day to take care of our customers,” said Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops and White River Marine Group.
“They have done an absolutely remarkable job to help our customers get back to nature safely and responsibly by serving them in our stores, fulfilling orders in our distribution centres and building the very best boats and kayaks.
“We are very proud to reward our front-line team members with these well-deserved bonuses for all their efforts in these challenging times,” Morris added.
The company is currently hiring more than 5,000 employees.
