Rural King - Manager Review from Germantown, Tennessee

1.9
Details
I purchased a chainsaw from these tools at the Vandalia, IL store. It ran for an hour before seizing up. Their store manager (John Becks) idea of fixing was to send me to their shop where a kid that was clueless on how an internal combustion engine worksn put a wbig wrench on the crank nut and turned it. He then started it and I got told it was fine. It never ran again. I tried for six months to get them to replace it but they refused.

The employees behavior might not be appropriate, but why is it any of your business? I don't suppose it would occur to you that maybe the recliners came in after you left?????????

I currently work at a Rural King. There's so much discrimination going on, it's ridiculous. We have an assistant manager who is consistently late, every day and nothing is ever done to him. We also had an individual start a few months back. Well 3 weeks into his...

I work in PA store and its the something here. Management doesn't know how to manage anything at all.

Racial comments have been made, nothing has been done. Even down to payroll I still haven't received my direct deposit. No appreciation to hard workers. Only the slackers who walk around n laugh all day get credit.

I will say our GM is a great guy overall n he handles everything the best way he can but (1) I don't think he knows everything that goes on in the store and (2)corporate has a lot of people in wrong places. #Wheatly n many more!

Rural King - Wooster, Ohio and Lake Wales,Fl.

I have been a customer in Wooster for years and have a wonderful experience and have shopped in Lake Wales Fl. And have liked bothe stores. I have talked with the manager at both stores and they have been very friendly and helpful. I will continue to shop at these stores when ever I can. The Lake Wales store is new and a wonderful store. The staff is very friendly and helpful the same in the Wooster store. In OhioRual King was my go to store before I went to any other equipment or clothing or parts store. If they did not carry what I needed then I would go elsewhere.

Rural King - Manager Review from Etowah, Tennessee

My experience is with the marion ohio store and it has a *** poor store manager. One asst manager talks to employees like they are dirt. Half the kid employees do nothingbut stand around or follow other employees around. There is nothing done about call offs or people not doing their job. Poor customer service all the time. I dont see this store lasting two more years. Not with the store manager as blind as he is. Never encountered such disgust in the way the store is ran. Something needs to be done or their business will decrease. Just ask some of the employees how the store is ran. I have.

Rural King - Management belittles employees in front of customers..so wrong!

Circleville management needs looked into in the Circleville, Ohio store, my daughter works there and I have seen alot. The managers belittle employees right in front of customers, and the favortism, I have never in my life seen so much favortism in a store before. If a manager does not like you, they will make it a living *** for you until you quit, they tried this with my daughter but she has been there from day 1that they moved into Circleville, she worked for the company in the same building before Rural King even exsisted in circleville. The working conditions are just horrible in this store. Not to mention it is 90-100 degrees in there. Please get more professionl and respectful managers for the Circleville, Ohio store!

I have worked for Rural King for two years now and believe me this is not an isolated accurance. I have witnessed this at my own store on several occasions and agree it is very unproffesional and basically rude and childish behavior ; that pretty much describes R.K.

management. The working condition (temp) aren't any better either.

Employee of Rural King

As an employee of this "company" I would say there are many incidents which make me wonder why I work for them, but maybe its only because they are close to home. They have slung me around, talked down on me and have been down right rude (managers, and hr manager). When storms are coming, (tornado warning) they stay open and put lives in danger. The lights will go out, and we will continue being open. The holidays like July 4th, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, we STAY open. This "company" would rather waste the money to keep the doors open on days like this when we get no customers, then close the store for one day. For me, I would like to spend this holidays with loved ones. A recent event that has really set me off, its payroll. I expect my paycheck to be here when it is supposed to be. I have bills to pay, and they automatically get withdrawn on the day after I get paid. This isn't a big deal until I don't have enough money in my account to cover the fees. This Rural King is UNSATISFACTORY.

Rural King - Manager Review from Leeds, England

The Carbondale Illinois store is selling sick and dying baby rabbits and the manager refuses to acknowledge complaints from customers or provide proper care for the animals. This is animal cruelty and the store should be prosecuted for allowing this to happen. What an awful place this is.

I was at rural king in Henderson, Ky tonight & noticed the baby rabbits were trying to get water from an empty bottle. I asked an employee of he could get them sone & he told me very quick that he doesn't take care of them & doesn't know who does.

I decided to fill them myself in their restroom as I've done many times for the baby chicks & ducks. Another worker was coming down the isle by the rabbit cages & I asked her if she takes care of them. She told me no but said she might be able to help me. I told her that I only wanted to get them some water & she said "ok" and walked away.

I asked her if she was going to get them some & she "sure" but kept walking. I've bee. Through this before with the lazy carefree employees that dont water the animals they sell. She never gave them any water while I was there.

I only shop there for chicken feed & food for wildlife but I hate going in that place! Why don't they just stop selling live animals?

They can't make much profit considering how many die. It's just cruel & sickening!

Rural King Manager Review

On June 30 I was in the Carbondale Illinois location. I saw that two bunnies were in severe distress. They had severe abdominal bloating, mucous nasal and rectal discharge, and could not stand. An employee passed and asked if I needed help. I told him that two bunnies were sick. His response "oh yeah" and he didn't break a stride, and kept walking. Imagine my horror when I learned this rude employee was MIKE the MANAGER. Wow. Bad example to teach the young store employees. I talked to an employee that told me Mike did not care about the animals or anything else for that matter except the almighty dollar. I left and returned to the store and purchased the two bunnies. during treatment the sickest bunny died screaming in agonizing abdominal pain WITHIN 2 HOURS of purchase. In case Rural King is unaware, there are animal welfare laws for animals including those for agricultural purposes. I have had multiple problems regarding Rural King and their inhumane treatment of animals. This time however I decided to file a formal complaint with the Illinois Department of Agriculture. I am and have been a licensed veterinarian for 21 years. The shelters are overrun with rabbits. Rural King has no business selling live animals in this day and age only to suffer a cruel fate. Shame on you Rural King! And SHAME on MIKE the CARBONDALE ILLINOIS rural king manager. Disgusting!

Rural King - Manager Review from Williamsport, Ohio

Circleville oh is horrible with customer service. I used to buy bedding there 3bags every two weeks. They started running out and I would have to run out of town for that bedding. I finally after waiting for manager to come discuss why, she had no answer. They quit selling this bedding after our talk. Not sure why! I have never once been asked in this store if I need assistance. And I always have to go find someone. And then they have to go ask someone else. Its just nonsense.
