Ex-employee

I used to work at the Rural King in Evansville, IN and I hated the whole company. It used to be an awesome company to be with. We used to have fun while working and helping our customers. Everybody was happy and had a blast. Even the customers were having a good time watching us pull pranks on each other. That was until Walmart Fred came along. We used to call him Bob Hope because that is what he looks like. I worked there for 7 1/2 years since I was unable to find another job. There was people who just started who were making more money than me. It took me 7 years to be made full-time and get benefits. Then I had to wait a year before I get a full-week vacation!! I was treated like *** and had to do everybody's job since they were to lazy to do it. I used to give customers discounts when i was not supposed to but I did not care. I was helping the customers. I am so much happier and stress free now that I found a job that I love. Take it from me, DO NOT EVER work for or shop at this company. They say you will get promotions but that is false advertisement. You won't go anywhere. They stopped all pay raises for good except for management. They were paying $50 for a pay of boots and were selling them for almost $200. That is ripping off the customer. We found dead rotting mice in our popcorn one day and the management told us to keep using it so we don't waste it!! How disgusting is that. If the health department ever came in, they would get shut down with the stories I got. The whole company needs to be shut down.

Rural King - Overall Impression Review from Clarksville, Tennessee

Was there yesterday March 22,2015 clarksville rural king, havent been in a while but they disgust me, dogs walking around on leashes and owners letting them *** on every corner, and the chicken area made me sick. How do they have a chick permit to sell when its that nasty, over crowded and sick looking and the smell! The people dont know anything about what is sold in that store,much less how to take care of livestock. I will not be back and they should have them penned up in a area where people keep their hands off until they have purchased them. That is what makes them sick and gets them injured. They arent shipped that way. For sure. Shut down the chicks being sold or make a better place to keep public out and from handling them. Its not sanitary and not good for the chicks either. If other stores have the process in check rural king should be no exception. Get with the program people.

I had visited Rural King recently and found that I had really liked it and had an enjoyable time as we had shopped a couple hours and had bought several things that we had not had to take back but even if we had I am sure it would not had been a problem anyway and even if it had I would still shop there because I had enjoyed myself so much and had told my family about how cool that store had been in Greenwood and I expect other shoppers had felt that same way:)

Cretins, yahoos and dolts...oh my!

Most of the employees at the 2468 Commercial Way, Spring Hill, FL 34606 location have that blank look in their eyes of slack-jawed, mouth breathing inbred dullards. Seriously, don't waste your time by asking them anything to do with the products, their availability or correct pricing; they will just look at you like you're speaking in Greek after inhaling helium. Just make sure you know exactly what you want, that it's in stock, where it's located and what is supposed to cost and you will have a chance of getting in & out of there with what you came for in a reasonable amount of time. But to be fair, this is typical for Floriduh.

Your problem might be that you don't sound like a very nice person. Who do you think you are to criticize the employees the way you described them?

Maybe your nasty attitude is the reason you get treated the way you claim. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

For heaven's sake, grow up! All stores, only give back the sale price on returned items, unless you have the receipt.

For your information this isn't the Rural King web site. It is a general complaint site. I would suggest you spend more time in school learning how to spell and punctuate.

Maybe next time take your parents with you when you go shopping.

Paid for in advance, but out of stock?!

Appr. 2 weeks ago I drove 30 miles to Muncie, In. to purchase a gun safe. I paid for it and notified the manager that I would return on Sunday day to pick it up and I did not want any complications. I was promised that the safe was being taken to the back room and was marked as sold, To Be Picked Up By Sunday. In preparation for this I rearranged the room it was to be put into and removed the seats from my van. When I arrived with my receipt I was met with confusion?! I was notified that there was none in inventory and out of stock! I said, "I know it's not in inventory. I purchased it 5 days ago". After several walkie talkie conversations I was informed that I could have the one from the floor that had holes drilled in the back or wait 2 weeks for a new one! What?!?!? I repeated the story to the shift manager and was met with a confused look and an uncaring Sorry! I got my money back and left. I was furious. I tried to call the other manager, Ernest, a few times, but he was never available. RURAL KING, what are you going to do about this?? I'm very upset about this and still have no safe! Please reply. I will try to send copy of CC receipt and return credit. Otherwise I will have to mail copies.
