    I worked at Blain’s Farm and Fleet part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Tell me if you find any.

    Cons

    Hiring process is annoyingly long, you have to do a drug test, and then pass a multitude of rigorous testing depending on the department you want to work in, and after all that which takes around one and a half weeks you are finally allowed onto the floor with a 90 day trial, your not going to get past the trial unless you are really required at the store. was let off after the 90 day trial along with pretty much everyone...

    Advice to Management

    Managements failure to order/update correct equipment for workers to use does not equate to said workers being terrible and or incompetent at their jobs. If management cant agree on how to do something as simple as how to properly close the store, of course people are not going to reach management standard.

    I have been working at Blain’s Farm and Fleet part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Managment team is great and has full respect for every one of their employees including me. If someone is slacking, they will be sure to put them back in line without being agressive. In more than a year I've been working here I have had some great experiences with both customers and co-workers. I am glad to be trained to do almost everything in the store so I can help wherever needed. Customers are always appreciated...

    Cons

    There is really only a few minor cons of working here: One is the prioritizing of new-hires. With only 2 part-time maintinence persons throughout the whole 114,000sqft store, it puts more preasure on us sales associates and even cashiers to do extra time-consuming tasks. The other is pay rate. Starting at $11/hr is okay, but the annual rases are only about 3%. For the amount of work everone does here, I think pay should...

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to managment is to get more maintinence employees and cashiers as well. I know they've been hiring for day shifts but what about nights??? The front end shouldn't rely on backup cashiers almost every day!
