Pros

Hard work for great hard working people. You get what you put into it. You get to help people on a daily.

Cons

Not the greatest pay. Heck, it's retail. Also, very outdated POS system. Please update computer system soon.

Advice to Management

At the store I was at.......... focus and develop good employees and "trim the fat" i.e. people with bad attitudes and work ethics should not be given any tolerance.

    Pros

    None. There is nothing good about this place.

    Cons

    No consideration for work/life balance in buying group--expected to work early, late and weekends with no mention of comp time to salaried employees, but if you take 2 hours to go to the doctor, you must use PTO to get paid. Below average salaries, no bonus opportunities, mediocre benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You've cleaned house in the Farm & Home management, but you need to clean some more.

    Pros

    It was a great experience with great management and the environment was a very friendly environment. The store manager was a great manager who cared about every employee

    Cons

    There are few cons to working for this company. One of which is just customers in general, they would get very frustrated sometimes but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep of the good work and continue to value your employees.
