I am currently an employee of Rural King. I can not begin to describe how poor our management teams are at some of our stores. That is from all the way at the top down to some assistant managers. If our president of the company, Alex Melvin, knew how his stores were...

Rural king employees are being robbed of the hours they've worked, on their pay checks. Hours missing every check.

Glad the company is making so much money stealing from its employees. They proescute thieves, but have become one.

LOL toilet sex in the bathroom huh?

Sound like their getting some service. Wonder why the manager was in denial about it? He could be in KAHOOTS with them.

Now exactly what happened here there's some details that your missing. Was the brunnete and the older man BOTH leaving the men's bathroom? Did you hear any strange noises?

Theres a number of reasons for exhaustion. PMS. Unless you've seen both of them leaving the same bathroom or in the same aera then it could have been something else.

But zipping up your pants in public is preeetty strange. Normally people check themselves before they leave the bathroom. Perhaps she is giving out free 'RAISES'!

Sounds like your typical horse person------world revolves around them, no one else is as important as them, walks thru any store in a daze, your hay isn't good enough for MY horses, your hay is TOO EXPENSIVE for my horses. This is definitely that type. I've dealt with them (or tried) before.

We’ve never had an issue until recently. The feed is just not the same and the people at Rural King said they’ve had a lot of compliments of late. So Cargill needs to fix it for sure.

Did you have an employee at Rural King type your information in for you at the store? I work at one of the Rural Kings and we are allowed to type in the rebate at out store if a customer asks.

If they don't you can try to go to another store and see if they will do it. I thought it was only 12% off.

I worked in the battery business for 33 yrs. before retiring, if that is a lawn tractor battery they only give you a 90 day free replacement after that it is pro-rated.

And yea, sorry to say I worked at Exide too, but not for long. I did not like some of their business practices. For instance their so called dual purpose marine battery, we reps. called it an NG for no good.

From what I am seeing now, they are pushing that battery on customers now that I retired. I refused to sell it to any of my customers unless they specifically ordered it, which was rare. I treated my customers right, so they trusted me. I normally sold around 200 to 400 per week in season.

There is nothing like a customer out on the water & the boat want start. As I told them, that consumer will remember you 4-everrrr, as he sits out there stewing.

That's a manufacture warrantee. Rural King has nothing to do with what the products they sell offer. You must call the 1800 and talk to the asain and thats how you go about it.

The biggest problem is that they cannot guarantee it was planted properly and with the unbelievable hot weather we have no control over the weather. Also if you go to a regular nursery those trees would have cost you at least 3 times as much.

Also most employees do not have my experience with tree care. Many employees are lucky if they know the difference between trees as the company does not provide any extensive training in this field
