Eligible employees who are actively employed by the Company may apply for internal job transfers.  Eligibility for internal job transfer between retail or corporate work locations or departments is dependent on all of the following criteria:

  • Have been in his/her position for a minimum of 12 months.
  • Meet the minimum requirements of the position as indicated on the job description.
  • Have no Corrective Action on file for the preceding 12 months of employment.
  • In positions where applicable, received a “Meets Expectations” or higher rating on the most recent performance review.
  • Business needs allow for transfer.*

Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis based on operational needs. The Company reserves the right to involuntarily transfer employees based on operational needs.

*Certain internal job transfers and promotions may be contingent upon the successful completion of a background check (and drug test for SGH positions within airports, SGH Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s, RxO/DC and EyeMed positions). If a background check (and drug test, if applicable) is required, DO NOT proceed with the transfer steps outlined below until the candidate successfully completes the background check (and drug test, if applicable).
