My Husband and I are looking for work and are currently looking at TSC and Family Farm and Home. We are both business owners and management and upper management without degrees, and college education needed. We’ve learned hands on. Which company has more to offer us in the Mount Pleasant area? Any suggestions on management from what I can read. The staff is unappreciated, and not given attainable goals and attainable bonuses. If the store manager makes a bonus. The entire staff of employees should as well. Monthly staff meetings, Monthly management meetings and bi annually Corporate visits its stores and speaks to the Store employees. Listen Listen and then Listen again. Hear your employees and you will have the best store. As for the store not having mops and brooms. You carry them. You walk over get one and clean. Tell Management you took it to clean. It can be written as a store purchase or have them use petty cash. The stores should not look, smell or be dark, dirty, or unfriendly. Please also, your in a farm store. So many do not know the difference in Vent Gleet, and Game Bird Food. Enjoy people, you have to understand, we’re all human, we all have bad days. Smile. The other farm store we visited for a project in mid Michigan, we walked through that store and seen so many things that need to be improved and things needed to be addressed. If the Management, or employees are a problem, talk to HR, if that doesn’t work, go higher up. If you love your job and you feel your making a difference, then keep smiling, head up and treat your customers as you’d want to be treated.

Answered

No breaks or lunch. Prices not on items and it would quickly hold up the line and make customers become nasty real quick
. Phone calls while you're trying to wait on customers. They would start up lawn mowers etc right in store and the fumes were overwhelming.

Answered

Close every shift. Management doesn't care. They are out the door by 3pm. 3 ppl to work an extremely busy shift. Customers are agitated.

Answered

No bi weekly

Answered

The manager and his daily tantrums and violent outbursts

Answered

No chance of ever getting caught up. Customers are supposed to be first priority, but the corporate office imposes so many new rules per day that there's no hope of ever getting everything done unless you cut short on customer service.
