About 125 positions will be open at Denver-area outlets.

Cabella's and Bass Pro Shops is gearing up for the holiday season with plans to hire 7,000 seasonal workers across the country, including about 125 in Colorado. The outdoor retailer hosted a nationwide hiring day last week to recruit potential employees and strongly encouraged those with a passion for the outdoors to apply.

The retailer has a Bass Pro Shops location on Northfield Boulevard in Denver, a Cabela's location on Lincoln St. in Thornton, and a Cabela's location on Cabela Dr. in Lone Tree. The company said its employees receive perks and benefits, including flexible hours, merchandise discounts up to 45 percent, healthcare benefits, and an award-winning team culture.

Seasonal positions are available at all of the company's locations, including at retail stores, contact centers, distribution centers, and manufacturing plants. Interested candidates can apply at basspro.com/careers. Most available positions are seasonal and part-time, but qualified candidates may be considered for full-time employment.

All applicants must be at least 18 years old.

In July, the company issued bonuses across the country to hourly frontline retail, distribution center, and manufacturing team members of between $250 and $1,000 based on job role and seniority. The bonuses were a multimillion-dollar investment in the company's workers to reward its employees for the efforts during the pandemic. The company also said it would raise starting wages nationwide in its distribution centers and in August gave a $1,000 retention bonus to those employees to reward them and to encourage potential employees to apply for jobs at the retailer.

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. 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 centers and building the very best boats and kayaks,” said Johnny Morris, noted conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops and White River Marine Group. “We are very proud to reward our frontline team members with these well-deserved bonuses for all their efforts in these challenging times.”

The company was actively recruiting 5,000 team members over the summer to support its operations.
