Best company I’ve worked for
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Fargo, NDSeptember 6, 2018
I love working at RDO. The company is awesome with competitive pay and great benefits. They definitely take care of their employees! I’ve heard the founder of the company, Ron Offutt, is a very nice and personable man and it’s always nice to work for good people.

Horrible place to work
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Indio, CAAugust 1, 2018
Management is horrible, service write didn’t know anything about repairs, only went based off of job codes which they would screw you over in time. Trying to hit their expectations in the shop was impossible. You’re paid time off is also your sick days. You accumulate only 8 hours a month of paid time off. Pay was no more than what an automotive technician gets paid. I would stay far away from this company.
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
No breaks, extremely stressful job

I am thankful to be a part of such a great group. Truly awesome company
Rental Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  Hewitt, TXJuly 15, 2018
I love the culture at RDO. The company has been very good to me and shown they care about my life and family. They offer awesome benefits as well as holiday pay and sick leave. The health insurance is a very good benefit and the 491K is managed very well. I enjoy working with local management as they are all easy to talk to and more than fair. I also appreciate the coaching style as I’ve learned a lot from their guidance.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Difficulty negotiating deals

Bad place to work
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZMay 5, 2018
Management or supervisors don’t know you name no matter how long you have worked there. Always held back by supervisor never allowed to prove yourself. No work had to stay on work order and wast time on it cause management didn’t have work lined up and will spend a lot of time training.
Pros
It a temp job
Cons
None available

Rdo
Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXApril 24, 2018
RDO is a good company to work for. Sometimes long hours and end of month craziness gets old. People were nice and upper management were easy to talk and deal with. Overall a good company to work for.

Agricultural Parts Counter Specialist
Parts Specialist and Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hermiston, ORApril 24, 2018
Worked parts counter for John Deere retail store.
Learned about farm and agricultural equipment and lifestyle.
Received hands on training for farm equipment operations and maintenance.
Hardest part of the job was not being in the "clique" with seasoned employees.
Enjoyed learning about what types of equipment is used for what specific purpose. Meeting and learning about the people that grow the food you eat.

To many hours
Irrigation Technician (Former Employee) –  United StatesApril 17, 2018
The farming blows, they work you like a dog. Never get respect, hours are way to much, no over time, expect you to be there for 8 to 9 months straight, hard to ask for a day off, can't ever get and good help, straight up waist of energy time and your knowledge

RDO was a good [place to work
Human Resources Payroll Analyst (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXApril 11, 2018
RDO was a good place to work. A very small company and the pay was relatively ok. No room for advancement at all. Work life balance was alright. The atmosphere was fairly relaxed.

Cut throat environment
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Salinas, CAMarch 8, 2018
The management is horrible. There is no communication, no follow through, no integrity. There is a big disconnect between management and the mechanics. There is high rate of turnover in personnel.

Untruthful store manager
Field Lube Technician (Former Employee) –  Williston, ND 58801March 5, 2018
The store manager will believe everyone but you and if you're not his friend then you're nothing to the company. You have to be in The Clique in order to work there. If you are not a part of The Clique you will not be able to work there for very long. Upper management past the store manager knows this but fails to do anything about it.

Good pay and great benifits
Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Sioux Falls, SDFebruary 22, 2018
All and all the corporation is good. Has good pay and excellent benefits. Currently going through a modernization of procedures. Company has a lot of long term employee's with 25+ years that are being phased/pushed out and new blood is coming in. This has created problems in management. Constant changes and growing pains. At the corporate level attempts are made to improve the company, but at the store level there is a lot of cut throat managers.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Weak lower managers, unsure guidance from above.
