      The Rural King I work at is a satisfactory job. I'm grateful to be employed.

      Pros

      down to earth management, location, culture at the workplace, hard working mentality, room to move up(internal opportunities),some stock options(for long term employees)

      Cons

      little to no training(sometimes good in certain areas), no real introduction to employees(not necessarily managements fault), A kind of "do or die" mentality as you're sort of thrown into work without any real know-how or again, training.

      Pros

      Loved many of my coworkers, 15% discount, and so got to pet dogs every day

      Cons

      Out of date equipment that doesn’t work half of the time, no training unless you ask for it, crap wages, our building didn’t have heat or air conditioning so it was 85-90 degrees in the summer and 40-50 degrees in the winter, we now have no break room because of Covid so people who don’t have cars have to sit on the stairs to eat their lunches. It also seems like only the cruel and deceiving managers stay because the good ones are pushed out. How management is treated by corporate is beyond disgusting. This is supposed to be a “Christian” company.

      Pros

      Free popcorn, and a 10% discount for you and your close family which is somewhat nice.

      Cons

      -management is a mess -misleading job title and details -no incentive to work You would get a quarter for each load out ticket you get and fufil however it has to be printed at the register, then signed by you. However people either never print them or give them to you or they are stolen by people more senior than you and you get nothing. Management doesn’t care and no training was given, the job was loader but I honestly did everything but load. Option to buy stock but it’s a private stock and really just a money pit with no returns or ability to look into company performance. The CEO seems to not care about individual store performance as ours sucked. We were out of black mulch for a month, in the middle of the summer when people are mulching. Menards was better in every way from prices to actually having the items they are advertising. What a joke.

      Horrible place to work.

      Pros

      - Some of the people you meet along the way. Definitely some interesting people - The employee discount is nice (15%)

      Cons

      - Very sexist company. It's sad when you work there 4+ years with high honors among your peers and they higher guys with no job experience making higher pay in the same position as you. -No Training. They just throw you to the sharks and then get mad when you do something the wrong way. -The stores are kept to the lowest standard possible. Honestly I'm surprised nobody has gotten sick in the Rural King I work at. -You never get to do your actual job. You basically get told to do every job but the one you were hired for. Then they get mad because your job isn't done. -You can't tell your manager when you are having a problem. They will just make excuses.

      Bad retail experience for amount paid

      Pros

      The people they hire were nice and I liked the managers except for one. I liked that they had the dog adoptions in the store once a week and ASPCA donations.

      Cons

      The only issue is that employees are expected to be on their own from day one. There is no training process (Maybe an hour of job shadowing) and the store is huge and communication is terrible because of this. I personally had issues with them listening to my availability. I was hired at my interview and they were aware I was a full time student. Store is too big and they have issues keeping good employees.

      Pros

      Employee can purchase stock in the company. Fellow employees are great.

      Cons

      All part time at minimum wage, only management is full time. The equates to a total earning potential of about $8000 per year, most work 2 jobs.Work is up to 30 hours per pay sometime 5 to 6 days, every day a different shift. Bare Concrete floors, dogs allowed (you clean up after not customer) Asst. managers are mean spirited and will embarrass you in front of customers. Most are former Wal Mart people and lack even the basic managerial skills, very anti employee. There is little or no training and you are just a body with no value, chance of advancement is slim purely entry level high school job NOT a career move. Most work here because there are NO other jobs available.

      Pros

      Good coworkers,customers are fun. time off requests usually easy to get.

      Cons

      No balance between real-life and work-life, no consideration given to scheduling NO SOP what-so-ever. Management inconsistent (bi-polar?) No training in any dept. Low pay. No loyalty. Product quality poor, full time hours impossible to get yet they keep hiring.
