Top 5 Reasons to Work at Midwest Machinery Co

 

1.) All for One and One for All

Whether your applying for the parts, service or sales department rest assured everyone is working together toward a common goal. Midwest Machinery’s vision is to be the Top Choice for customers and employees in the Ag, Turf and Commercial markets. We are a growing organization with long-term stability that values a strong local connection. By working together as a team we can better serve our customers and happy customers equals happy employees. Join our Team and continue building our goal of being the top choice for customers and employees alike.

2.) Build Customer Relationships

Here at Midwest Machinery you get to interact with different people no matter what department you work in. You have the ability to create awesome relationships with customers and co-workers, in and outside of work. As a salesperson your customers will come back time after time as you gain their trust and every time you sell them other piece of equipment you learn a little more about them. Same goes for the parts department, as you help them at the parts counter you learn more and more about who your customers are. Although service technicians probably don’t see as many customers on a day to day basis you are the ones that go out to the farms on service calls. You get familiar with their farm and fields, see a few of their kids and maybe even learn the dogs name.

Remember the Fallen this Memorial Day

This Memorial Day remember to honor those who have fallen serving our country.

Graves at Arlington on Memorial DayIt is such a selfless act what soldiers do for us and our country. They leave their families behind to protect us and too many times they don’t return home alive. Memorial Day is a day dedicated to those soldiers, those soldiers who will never come home again. Lets acknowledge the hard work every military member does for our freedom and lets do it today because tomorrow might be to late. You may want to honor the fallen by attending a local Memorial Day service. Many churches hold a service annually. Below is a moving statement said at a memorial service in 2014 at Greenwood Cemetery in Sauk Centre, MN.

“As you leave today, if you see a veteran, please take the time to say thank you, Shake their hand or give them a hug. They probably will be surprised and certainly will not demand it. We cannot thank those who are no longer with us, but we can certainly let those who survived and served know how much we appreciate them and what they have done. For those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, I can only say, may you rest in peace my friends. May you rest in peace.” -Gary Gamradt
