    I have been working at Wilson Farm full-time

    Pros

    It's a family business, that treats employees well. from the newest teenager to the 30+ year employees...there is a reason people stay. THEY FEEL VALUED! Those that complain, well nothing needs to be said. It's not perfect, but you will never hear anyone say "not my job". It's clearly a team effort to make everything seam effortless to customers.

    Cons

    We're not perfect. We work hard, have lots of employee appreciation activities and enjoy the rewards for our work. Those who don't last here, there's a reason. The rest of us do pretty well!

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Scott Wilson and his management team keep everyone hopping busy, look after the employees and ensure the standards are met for our customers. Unhappy employees would translate to unhappy customers. Nobody wants that.

    Pros

    Alan Wilson has effective leadership skills and is doing what needs to be done to keep the company on target.

    Cons

    Good employees left to get away from nasty store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Screen the store managers more closely. When there are multiple duplicate complaints about a manager look into the issue. People are your greatest resource.

    Pros

    Depending on what store you work you can have a really relaxed management team, or the ones who will drill you to work harder, when the manager themselves does not work that hard. If you want to make real money you should invest on becoming a store manager, for they are the only ones who get bonuses for the hard work that the rest of your management team might be doing.

    Cons

    If you want a raise for doing a good job you wont get it. You get raises for getting promoted. They do give yearly raises, but they are hard to get and are minimal when you get them. The company does not want anyone get any over time, so no extra money for working late.

    Advice to Management

    Give praise where it is deserved. There are some managers out there doing a fantastic job, and get nothing for it. No extra benefits or bonuses.
