    I worked at Orscheln Farm and Home full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benifits for full time

    Cons

    They want a lot of hours as store manager 60+ a week
    Once you do the math you are making no more than a cashier with all that extra time because you are salary.
    Little to no training

    Advice to Management

    work on team building and leadership skills.

    I worked at Orscheln Farm and Home part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It paid well and the other workers were just as hard working as you are. We built each other up and helped each other if need be.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure was put on night shift to pick up day shift slack. There was no temperature control so it got extremely hot during the summer. They quit hiring part time which prevented college students from being able to apply.

    Advice to Management

    Hire part time workers because they usually are the ones most wanting the job and willing to work to keep it. Update the computer systems so that they don't continue crashing.

    Pros

    It's nice to share your knowledge to help the customers.

    Cons

    The pay is the lowest I've made in years. You are just a number to the company. The store manager promises things but doesn't deliver. Very cliquish. Assistant managers can get away with being lazy. They treat other employees like crap. Store manager has favorites and let them get away with anything while the others were expected to work harder to cover. Ancient registers system. No logic in anything done except if it comes to bottom line which is all corporate cares about. Corporate controls thermostat and lights which is stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as human beings not a number. Everything shouldn't be about the bottom line. Happy employees make happy customers. You are getting too many corporate ex Walmart people in, orscheln is turning into Walmart with worse pay.
