"Experience"Jan 10, 2022

Former Employee - Freight Team Associate

I worked at Tractor Supply part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I loved working with tractor supply because we was not only a team we was a family.

Cons

It hard to get your job done on time if one person it out of work, everyone's job is important no matter how small it seems.

Advice to Management

If I was managment i would rotate a extra part time employee to just be for call in situations or Last minute emergency situations. That way the employee that's on call in duties will be prepared and... ready to save the sales each week when a team member is not able to do a shift.
