Okay I have to say that I am very discussed after hearing what I did the other day! I must ask Alex, what kind of stores are you allowing to be run? The fact is that your policy states, as well as many complains that have high standards in employment, that managers are...

And again this former employee.. actually used to date an hourly associate while they were an assistant.

Funny story. I am "discussed" .. try the word disgusted next time. You can go ahead and take this matter to the local media ..

and when they find out you are making statements against someone that isnt true. In word form .. I am pretty sure the word is "libel". That's right along with defamation.

Which you can be sued over.

Like I have stated before .. people in glass houses should not throw stones.

Rural King in Scottsburg, Indiana - Jeffersonville and shelbyville

I am currently an employee here at the Jeffersonville store... I have a major complaint about our new store manager and assistant manager trainee... First off our store manager is beyond rude, he is fair, but his attitude is horrible. Our new trainee from Shelbyville really gets a "special treatment"! Many times I have over heard them say let's meet at our usual place or special place! I was told that managers were not allowed to date people in the same store or be involved with other employees! I really consider this unprofessional and beyond revolting! Can someone please fix this!!??

I work at a Rural King store but I will not say which one. I happen to know who the Shelbyville manager and she is a big *****.

That is all she thinks about. That does not surprise me one bit.

Rural King is the worst company to work for. Once you start work for this company, you are not able to leave unless you quit and pray you have another job.

What's incredibly sad is. There is absolutely no truth to this statement.

This person. Is a not an employee there currently. They are a FORMER employee. They have a personal vendetta against the people they are making a claim to.

Rural King has its faults as a company, yes. All companies do. But as to the "special treatment" this person states the new trainee gets .. how would they know if they ARENT EMPLOYED THERE!

So in conclusion ...

people who live in glass hosues should not throw stones. It tends to end up badly.

It's incredibly sad how much all the poor management takes up for each other. There's no perfect store, but it's gone downhill bad in the past few months.

The work moral is very low. The leaders don't set a good example and there's no management to trust that an employee can even go to to talk!

It tends to end up badly when you *** where you eat, in all of your cases. And there is nothing Incredible about any of the irritating situations that occur at Rural King on a daily basis for no logical reason.

Things could be 75 percent better but Mr.

Mattingly seems simply off his little rocker. :roll

Rural King in La Center, Washington - Initially pleased

I ordered 3 Suncast Hose Reels. Conf: 100144321. When I received the order I opened just one to be sure I had the right product. I was pleased and filled out the feedback form online stating that. Unfortunately, a few days later I opened the other two and found that one was missing the 6'hose. I contacted the company and asked that they send me the hose,the unit was perfectly fine. They insisted I had to rebox the entire Hose Reel and send it back and they would then send me another with the hose. Why in the world would they insist on this policy vs. just mailing the missing hose??? Oh yea, it's such a hassel, they know we won't follow their rediculous orders (we'll get it somewhere else), SO THEY WIN & don't have to do anything to make it right. Poor Customer Service!!!

PLANO IL RURAL KING NEEDS HELP

THere was a 20 foot sign above all the nursery products in the lot. When I went to checkout my 6...only 6 tomato plants the cashier said they were not nursery products and she would not give me the discount. Since when does 20% off all nursery mean only a few items. The manager was ruder than the cashier. I mean we are only talking a few dollars off. I use to shop there all the time but I have not stepped into that store since. I even tried to call management and got no response. I use to spend about $100 plus there every month on feed and salt,no more.....

Rural King in Knox, Indiana - Don't Trust The Product Reviews

RuralKing.com will not publish bad reviews on their products or customer service. Beware. Ever wonder why all of the reviews are so positive? I posted a bad product review 8 times because I checked back on the site and noticed that only the good reviews were showing. I tried and tried again but no luck. RuralKing.com must be editing out the bad reviews. Do not buy from this company. You can not trust the product reviews. My product arrived damaged, rusty, dented, scratched and looked like it had been repainted. Clearly it is a refurbished unit. Do not buy.

Purchased a King Kutter 5' Finish Mower RFM-60-YK from RuralKing.com. The vendor offered a 10% discount if I completed the order, however, did not honor the discount. I tried to cancel the order, however, they don't allow canceled orders. The mower arrived scratched,...

Rural King in Knox, Indiana - Poor customer service, product not as advertised

I ordered the King Kutter 5' Finish Mower RFM-60-YK. After placing the order I received on average 2 emails each day saying the my order was incomplete. The lady in customer service said that the emails were caused by a problem with the order entry software and that it could not be fixed. I'm still receiving emails about the unfinished order. She also said not to worry because my order was really ok. I also received an email offering a 10% discount on the item that I purchased. The customer service folks refused to honor the discount that they offered me. I received the mower and is it not as specified in the online ad. It is missing the chains that should cover the back. Also, the unit is clearly a refurbished mower that was sold as new. It comes pre-scrached and dented so that you don't have to do that yourself. Do not buy from RuralKing.com. There are better choices for making purchases of farm equipment. Beware!

Rural King Decatur Indiana

I used to like going to the Decatur store until I had to deal with Steve, the assistant manager. Clearly this guy has no brains. I was in there for a good hour trying to find different parts for a sprayer on Sunday and I had asked him for help. He said okay and never came to help me. I was standing there waiting patiently and he just stood there with his arms crossed joking around with one of the employees. 20 minutes later he finally came over to help me and had no clue about what he had in his store nor what he was talking about..I'd be really embarrassed if I were him!

so you want him to tell YOU what YOU needed. sounds like you don't know *** either.

why didn't you know what you needed. and its you fault you stood there for 20 minutes.

you could have walked over there and asked for help. or you could have figured it out by yourself by using your eyes and brain

The mower has one warranty but the engine itself has a seperate warranty. They don't tell you that.

And it doesn't matter if its RK or any other retailer. And it doesn't matter who the manufacture is. But the better manufactures are putting the better engines in their frames. So usually those engines have less problems.

Not all Briggs and Stratton or Kohlers are built the same. And MTD are the cheapest made with t he cheapest engine. MTD 10 years ago where good mowers but not now. And MTD makes a lot of mowers for the bigger names.

Your entry level John Deere, Cub Cadets are made by MTD. If your looking to buy a name brand tractor from a big box retailer, know it is an MTD.

Ask many questions first. Dont rush to buy.

Did you winterize your mower. My guess is no.

You probably have messed up fuel.

That leads me to this question. How is this Rural King's responsibility?

I purchased a riding mower from Rural king on 7/21/2011. I mowed 4 times total in 4 years, a bad drought last year.

My mower, will not start, 2 year warrenty on it. I took it back to Rural King and now they are telling me that I need a new carbeurator and it is not covered under the warrenty. The cost for that will be 90 bucks. I paid 1170.82 for the mower so that amounts to nearly 300 for each mowing.

How could the carbeurator be bad, I only used the mower 4 x.

I am disabled and on a fixed income and not a happy customer.

My paperwork says it is still under warrenty until July but not according to them.
