welcoming work palce

A day at work was slow yet i understood my tasks and they never changed which was good as made me a reliable employee. I was given reasonable hours and during busy periods an abundance of possible hours.

Awesome work place

There is no hard or easy part of the job, Security within the work place is worthy. There is also a mix culture with in the whole store so you never feel left out.

no leadership only puppets

Do your best to stay away and exercise other options. When they say the grass is greener, here it is not. Farmers applies to the title"The grass is always greener on the septic field". Overtime is offered as long as management approves of working long hours. This is to include driving over 300 miles some days, writing college grade dissertations as to what, why and how. Most of the time management won't understand what you write as they are incompetent as to what the job actually is. Under the big top there are side shows and individual rings for additional side acts. Welcome to the great show on earth where you imagination runs wild with the stories that are spoken and facilitated. Please exercise other options as you will save yourself heartache and headaches.

Helpful and Tidy

A typical day would be going in early, and doing recovery. What I learned is that recovery is most important and making sure that stock was constantly full and helping the customer pick out stuff to match what they are buying. The management was good and the co-workers were fine. Hardest part of the job was nothing that I can think of? The most enjoyable part was helping out customers :)

Pros

Good co- workers and managers

Fun and busy workplace.

Farmer's is a very busy workplace filled with so many people in different age groups and cultures. I made friends and got along with people i was surrounded by. Everyone is friendly although they love being in their own groups and people their own ethnicity rather than not mingling during their lunch breaks. The hardest part of the job is having to move fast when it is very busy!

Pros

Long hours

A wonderful experience.

Allways busy product knowledge, staff management., merchandising, stocktaking preparation through to completion, cashing up, customer acknowledgement/30sec rule, store security, The hardest part were difficult customers who took their anger out on staff and children. The most enjoyable was making store of the month, the loyal customers that loved us and the friendships of fellow staff members who were like family.

A fun and easy going workplace

During my time at Farmers I learnt so many different skills and met amazing people who were easy to work with. My manager was a lovely woman and very easy to approach. Although my time with Farmers was very short I still feel that it will be time that I will remember forever. For a first job I believe this was very easy work but I had to work very long hours during my time here, I found it tiring at times but the pay was definitely worth it!

Pros

free christmas lunch

Cons

long hours at times
