"I have worked for John Deere for 15 years now and still love coming to work every day. I get to work with people inside Deere on a daily basis, and also have the advantage of helping customers as well. I am able to travel for work and see many different applications that our construction and forestry products are used in as well as the different environments. As with any job, it has its up’s and down’s with some stressful situations as times but those pale in comparison to being able to help the customer through their tough times. I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a job to look inside the Deere organization."

"Most of my family members have worked for John Deere most of my life. I have a personal passion for community service and volunteerism and there are many opportunities for community involvement supported by John Deere. I currently volunteer for the Quad Cities chapter of Quilts of Valor. I sew quilt blocks for quilts that are given to veterans during a recognition program for their service and to help assist in PTSD therapy. I also serve on the Board of Directors for two local non-profit organizations, Sprouting Minds and Mississippi Valley Quilt Guild. As I track my volunteer time, it’s exciting to know that it’s acknowledged and encouraged to be active in my community. I am two courses away from achieving my Master’s in Economic Development, which is paid for by John Deere. I look forward to utilizing my background in Education and Economic Development to support John Deere's community involvement strategy."

"I choose to work for Deere because it was a large, local company that values employee development. The best things about working at John Deere are the teamwork I experience daily, the relationships I have developed, and the fact that John Deere really cares about their employees. Deere’s focus on the employee was refreshinng and the best part of my job is being able to work with people at all levels in the company to drive change."

"I’ve worked for Deere for 38 years and I’ve seen a lot of changes through the years. My father worked at Harvester and I have 6 siblings that retired from John Deere, so I followed in their footsteps. My family members' combined years of service at Deere is over 200 years, and I am incredibly proud of that!"

"I really appreciate John Deere’s core values of integrity, commitment, quality and innovation. In my youth, I worked on a golf course and really appreciated the reliability of the Deere Turf equipment that we were using. This idea of “integrity in everything” flows within the company, to our customers, and even into volunteerism within the community. It’s a very small world and tight knit community at Deere. Despite it being a large corporation, there are often only two to three degrees of separation in growing business relationships. This has translated into lifelong friendships and support in achieving a higher degree of education from my master’s degree to now my doctorate."

"I was recruited to John Deere when the Construction & Forestry division was expanding their marketing organization. That was almost 18 years ago! I had worked for 2 major manufacturers before starting with Deere. The move required relocation and quite a bit of change, but it was a great decision and one I never regretted. At Deere, I have the opportunity not only to contribute, but to initiate, implement, and innovate. Currently, I have the BEST job in the company!"

"I can honestly say that I love my job. Being a wife and mom of three, my personal life is very important to me. Being able to close things up at the end of the day to enjoy my family is priceless."
