    I have been working at Blain’s Farm and Fleet part-time

    Pros

    Flexibility in scheduling around your personal schedule. Co-workers very friendly and very easy to get along with. Great team to work with. Nobody steps on each other's toes.

    Cons

    Pay rate increases. Schedules should be uniform every week instead of all over the board. Great chance for advancement if you show you are interested and can prove yourself as a worthy and trustful person.

    Advice to Management

    Give the workers who know what it's like to be in the work-force a little more credit. . In the end, the kids will step all over you because they don't care.

    I worked at Blain’s Farm and Fleet full-time

    Pros

    Will help you in a young career. Mentorship is provided.

    Cons

    Direction from executive leadership can change in a month basis with really no alignment on vision. A lot of confusion of what the true priority is.

    Operates in a way where store visits from anyone, at any level within the organization from corporate, can make or break your reputation. On a side note, visits can be a total surprise. Rather have visits from direct bosses than merchants.
