Pros

Takes little agricultural experience to get the job, but it sure helps to do your job. Great pay for someone out of college with an ag degree...especially nowadays.

Cons

Not a "family-oriented" workplace as they advertise. Be prepared to work Thanksgiving Day and Easter. You'd better be willing to relocate. There are a lot of great managers and regional managers, but definitely a disconnect with corporate. If you work their "ideal" manager schedule, you'll rarely get two days off in a row.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop advertising yourself as a "family-oriented" workplace when you are clearly not. Also, is it so difficult to smile and be friendly to those at the regional and store level; instead of just try to scare the heck out of everyone.

    I worked at Orscheln Farm and Home part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I can't think of one pro.

    Cons

    The job is BORING. Very few customers. Management doesn't let employees be creative or listen to new ideas. No room for advancement even though they advertise that they do. The pay in minimum wage and no benefits. High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to feel like part of a team. Allow them to be creative with displays and expect them to do their job to a high rate of standard. Clean for place up! Just because it's a farm store, that doesn't mean that customers want to see a filthy floor!
