I worked at Tractor Supply full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
Customers were the best reason to work there. Normally fun environment and customers are excited to see new stores.Cons
Labor budget cuts with little notice to adjust scheduling. Expected to do more with less people. Often operated numerous store with 2 people opening and then 2 people closing. Sales plan was developed by someone in office 2000 miles away. Management team expected to do most of duties while answering phones, unloading trucks, loading customer purchases with little OT allowed. District managers can have negative impact when visiting and making corrections they feel are best rather than coaching new managers why changes are needed. Managers don't have experience doing scheduling and aren't trained before getting thrust into store openings on a system they can't navigate around or even open.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Check the viability of morel and ethics you supposedly live by. Don't spend millions starting up store and getting community excited and then the next week cut labor so expenses seem in line for investors.
The extra money most stores make at Grand opening should be banked for use when times are slow and sales down.
Management needs better training to do business functions more effectively. More time needed to really be sure new managers are confident at what they are expected to do and say.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
