Horrible Place
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  TNOctober 1, 2018
Recruited with the Promise of a management position due to my work experience. Position was given to someone else without even an explanation. Constantly not being able to take meals due to low staffing/poor scheduling, harassment about missing a day due to personal reasons and being told to work off the clock to do training. No accountability for associates who don't perform. Company is beyond bad and doesn't seem to follow its "Core" Values at all. Very disappointed since the customers tend to be very friendly and understanding.

Terrible management.
Team Lead (Current Employee) –  IdahoSeptember 26, 2018
Worst job ever. Management doesn't back you on anything. Constantly throws lower employees under the bus. Management is not held accountable for their job duties. They constantly act as though they are above everyone and don't need to work themselves. Company will always hire from the outside instead of promoting hardworking, qualified employees.

Great place to work!
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CA/ New Boston TexasSeptember 22, 2018
By providing legendary customer service , your customers keep coming back to see you. I had the privilage to work in two of their stores, in two differant states. Do to non development of my training i chose to move industries. If they would have continued to train me i would have stayed. I love the Company .
Pros
Advancement opportunities are plentiful.
Cons
You must have managers willing to take the time to properly train you, not other team members

Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Dixon, CASeptember 13, 2018
A typical day at work starts you off short staffed in the mornings (3 people), slightly better coverage in the middle of the day, and short staffed at night (3 people). Lunch coverage was always difficult because you become even more short handed. If you are one of the managers on duty (usually only one in the morning, one at night, some cross-over in the middle) your lunches are frequently interrupted. Don't count on your ten minute breaks either, those just don't happen. The customers are wonderful, its a specific crowd that shops at TSC and they are people who all have farming/ animals/ ranching/ in common. Lots of theft unfortunately mixed in with the good customers. Managers on duty are expected to perform a plethora of tasks (price changes, stock resets, ordering feed, supervising employees to make sure their tasks are done, operating the forklift, etc) in a rushed amount of time while also catering to all customers, phone calls, and directing employees who need assistance. On top of everything, they also are required to have a pristine store at the end of the night, ready for opening the next morning. The amount of responsibility and stress that is put on the managers is not nearly compensated for by the sad amount of pay they receive.
Pros
employee discount
Cons
last min scheduling, bad pay, stressful work environment, short staffed

Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Smithville, TNSeptember 8, 2018
Working at TSC was great, but management needs tons of improvements. Management will degrade you in front of others, talk about you badly to other employees. I found it to be a hostile inviroment if you're not in the managers click.
Pros
Flexable schedule
Cons
Management is a joke

Team Lead (Former Employee) –  New Philadelphia, OHSeptember 3, 2018
You will do well at this company if you like to play games and get involved with others personal business. If you choose to keep to yourself and just focus on your job you will not do as well. If you play the game you will advance and have time for family work balance. If you go against the grain you will find that there will be no balance as you will be required to work closing and all weekends

can advance fast in jobs within the store
Team lead (Former Employee) –  DeLand, FLAugust 21, 2018
it is rough working for tractor supply, in that they demand certain requirements for running the store yet one feels that they do not give the proper training and the proper amount of man hours to accomplish the tasks at hand during a shift.
Pros
fast advancement and employee bonuses

Trains their employees to be knowledgeable on what they are selling and doing.
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Sayre, PAAugust 10, 2018
Was a good place to work, but had little room for advancement. Customers were pleasant majority of the time. Provided training on products that they sold. Trained you on how to do your job not let you figure it out on your own.

Wasn’t a great experience
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Plaquemine, LAAugust 9, 2018
Work wise it wasn’t a great experience. Way to much drama within the work place, and very unfair management. Definitely showed favoritism. Would not return to that particular store, it needs A LOT of work. But would love to work another store.
Pros
Seeing animals

Drama

Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Gloucester, VAAugust 7, 2018
They move so many managers around and nobody gets trained properly. You are expected to know everything by your second week. They will hire anybody right off the street.
Pros
None
Cons
Only 15% discount, little pay, lack of training

Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Greenwood, MSAugust 3, 2018
I started with little knowledge of the company. I really enjoyed my work environment in the beginning. But as of late, management isn't the best. It's hard working with management that came from outside and doesn't really know the culture of TSC. Overall the work is not hard and it's quite enjoyable.

Good for a Low Paid Work-aholic
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Benson, AZJuly 31, 2018
- Open the store or take the deposit to the bank; work through tasks assigned by corporate task list and the manager; customer service and more customer service; lots of feed and hay bale load-outs; closing tasks with deposit preparation.
- I learned retail operations and learned about a retail mentality from my manager.
- I am considered as part of the store's management staff as a team leader, but actually I'm a team member with increased responsibilities.
- Customer service and sales dominate the workplace culture.
- Hardest physical part of the job is loading hay bales in the afternoon; hardest mental part of the job is being treated as a substandard person by the store manager.
- Most enjoyable part of the job is locking the front door after closing.
Pros
steady work
Cons
low pay; lack of common respect from the manager

Didn't like it
Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Burkburnett, TXJuly 11, 2018
I did not like working at Tractor supply for one they hire people that have no clue about livestock or anything else. I think if your going to work around animal health you need to know about all of it.
