    I have been working at Tractor Supply full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CEO-down to earth and approachable
    SSC-team actually supports the stores as promised
    Jobs are so physical no gym membership is needed
    Training is a priority for every level of team
    Bonus plan for all team members not just mgt
    Great customers

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work
    One of the lowest payroll budgets in the industry
    Very physically demanding job--if you don't go home dirty you didn't do your job
    Everything at tractor weight 50+ lbs
    You will work outside loading and unloading product and filling propane rain or shine, hot or cold
    Chick days
    Constantly resetting planograms

    Advice to Management

    Hire hard
    Expect to work way more than promised
    Schedules change daily based on deliveries and never ending resets
    Always cutting already low payroll
    No work life balance for salaried mgt
    Cross train everyone
    Expect to leave dirty and tired everyday--there are no office mgrs at tractor
    If you work hard and don't have a life outside you can advance quickly

    Pros

    TSC lives by their Mission and Values. Corporate Culture is GREAT....

    Cons

    IT groups are not innovative. Data Integration lacks strong leadership and strategic direction. Must be fluent in Indic languages to effectively communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure Integration group where AI and DI are combined, as leadership in the DI group is non-existent.

    I have been working at Tractor Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, simple plan, follow the directions and you can be successful. Company will work with you to get you where you want to be.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure. Little payroll. Demanding physical work. Always a new project that is a priority. Company focuses on growth and not controlling things that cause waste or lost profits through markdowns. Not every store can run the same way.

    Advice to Management

    Allow managers more control over products and seasonal items. Give us some payroll to take care of our customers and all the projects due tomorrow. Forget the stakeholders. Take care of US.

    I have been working at Tractor Supply part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Willing to work with your availability and give decent amount of hours. Customers are great and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Unless you have a background in farming, there is no option for improvement. They will not train you, and then punish you for your lack of knowledge. They shelves are always empty and half of the customers leave empty handed. They play favorites( store manager's friend's daughter was hired in making $2 an hour more than those who have been there for over a year.) Men also make more than women.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time training your current employees than constantly hiring new ones. Check inventory more than once a year. Keep it professional and stop playing favorites. Inact an open door policy.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Health, dental, eye, life, stock options, 401k

    Cons

    Just cause the company has great standards doesn't mean the DM and SM keep to those standards for their team members.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust payroll for large inventory and customer based stores.

    I worked at Tractor Supply part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of working with TSC would be the great customer base, and easy work. And if you have a great team, it makes the job wonderful.

    Cons

    Management is lazy, upper management needs work, not enough pay, horrible scheduling, and for my personal experience, the morale of the team dropped significantly under our Store Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with store management, take decisive action, talk to the lower employees (I.e.- cashiers) about how they feel in their work environment.

    Pros

    Employee's who are there are good employee's
    outside work is good.

    Cons

    Too much to do...not enough time to do it all.
    Store Managers won't listen to employees.
    Not enough pay.
    Expected to load and unload pallets of feed by hand with little or no help.
    Rude and demanding customers
     Low staffing
    Clueless District managers
    HR has to approve all discipline actions

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the store personal not just the Store Managers.
     Get in touch with the stores and learn who the staff is.
    Better training for the staff
     Job assignments should reflect the hours and staff available. Not 40 man hours of work in two days with a staff of 4 people who also have to provide customer service
