Hard work and little work balance
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Mims, FLNovember 1, 2017
Its great for entry level managers but the pay isn't that great for people with experience. Lots of work to do and not enough labor to do it all. They preach balance but in the end it's all about the money

Used to be a good place to work!
Retail Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Lebanon, PAOctober 31, 2017
In the past 5 years or so all of the top management that made this company great have left, retired etc. They have been replaced with executives that have failed at other Fortune 500 companies. The missions and values they talk about only apply to store team members. Above store level, they mean nothing and they insist on pushing growth beyond what the DCs can handle. Freight crew schedules change at the drop of a hat and PT team members are expected accept frequent changes to written schedules without question, 'for the needs of the store'. The average customer is not your typical entitled retail customer. They are super friendly, courteous to team members, and honest. They often bring their pets in and know half the team by name. The customers and store team members are the company's only saving grace
Pros
Great Customers!
Cons
Hypocritical about 'Missions & Values'

Retail with inconsistent hours and poor management

I am not one to enjoy retail, so for someone who does, they may like this company. The products that are made by the company are cheaply made and cheap in price.
Cons
short breaks, low wages, cheap products, lack of knowledge of agriculture by management

Poor
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, SCOctober 4, 2017
The area I'm in now hopefully does not transfer throughout the company. Poor upper management and inadequate support makes working there difficult. We're asked to do so much with no payroll to support what is being required of us.
Pros
discount
Cons
Long hours, no help, inadequate replenishment systems, poor management

Growth company

Growth company. Good Executive Leadership but does not translate to District Managers. Poor communications and little personal/professional balance. Lowest percent to sales payroll in retail industry requiring managers to carry the burden.
Pros
Customer base
Cons
Physically demanding and high turn-over

Initially Rewarding
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Salina, KSSeptember 5, 2017
Took charge of the entire store operation from open to close, assist in any aspect of the job from receiving, rtv's, loss prevention, people management and customer service. Hardest part of the job was low labor hours to work with. If someone called in sick it was the job of the assistant manager and/or store manager to cover those shifts.

Working within the community with others was also rewarding, but also put a strain on the weekly labor hours.
Pros
Initially challenging and rewarding
Cons
Low Labor Hours and cost

Long hours, very physical work
STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  New York StateAugust 25, 2017
Long hours are expected for store manager. Assistant manager's hours were cut and the time was expected to be made up by the store manager. The company has changed so much as they bring in execs from other retailers. The company has lost the culture that made it so enjoyable years ago. Very hard to achieve balance between your personal life and work life. I started working for TSC because of my love for horses, but as a store manager I had no time to enjoy my horses. It was a constant battle to find dedicated team members that were willing to do the hard work and physical labor for the paltry amount that we were allowed to pay them.
Pros
employee discount, build relationships with customers with similar interests
Cons
long hours, no work/life balance, very physical work
