    Pros

    Great support from upper management. Work hard and you will be rewarded. Training program for the new recruits will help make our company even stronger.

    Cons

    Current internship program is a little weak. Could use a little more guidance in developing potential candidates. Need to make sure when hiring college graduates that they know what they're getting into.

    Advice to Management

    I am happy so far with the management I work with.

    Pros

    Use to be a solid retail organization

    Cons

    After the Royster and UAP acquisitions the leadership lost touch with field staff. Wore many hats as a branch manager. 60 hours a week off season and 80+ hours in season.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics of being a locally focused retailer and staffing retail outlets with enough quality people and come up with progressive, sustainable ideas for your customers.

    Pros

    Learned a lot just from hands on

    Cons

    Not very patient with younger generation. No offered instruction- had to ask and ask and ask to learn. Just turned you out on your own to figure it out.

    Advice to Management

    Make initiation period longer- more than one day of ride along a in the truck
