I had heard great things about the company from friends that had worked there, including them being really forgiving about working with class schedules. It was exactly the job I needed at the time to pick up a few extra hours of work between college classes every week.
I had already gotten a job with a technology firm. I worked both jobs for a little while, but I had already graduated, and wanted a full-time position. I could have moved up the ranks at Bass Pro, but I am not a big outdoorsey person, and I felt much more at home doing tech support and writing code. I informed my superiors that I would not be returning after the holiday season. I left in early January, right after Christmas had been packed up.
