"At John Deere, there are so many learning opportunities. But an employee has to be proactive. It’s all about you making the decision to pursue your area of interest and getting the help and resources to do it. That’s what I find really great about working here. The company is willing to put money behind individuals to go after the things they’re interested in, as long as there is a business reason to do it."
Andrea, Product Support Representative, John Deere Intelligent Vehicle Systems
"People here are passionate about what they do – you can tell the minute you meet them. Everyone is very open to my ideas, and we really work well as a team. I majored in Mechanical Engineering Technology, but I fell in love with Marketing. John Deere gave me the opportunity to explore Marketing and still use my technical knowledge."
Matt, Auditor, Corporate Offices
"At John Deere, the work is challenging, and you have a chance to move up. I work with engineering and supply management to generate pricing standards. It has global impact. I was hired on the FDP (Finance Development Program) rotation which provides in-depth exposure to various accounting functions and provides an opportunity to choose an area that best fits your skills and interests."
Roger, Senior Manufacturing Engineer, John Deere Des Moines Works
"One of my mentors told me, ‘Don’t be afraid to search for a role that develops a skill in an area you’re not strong in.’ If I hadn’t followed that advice, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It’s really surprising how far the company goes to support your continuing education and training. John Deere goes way above and beyond to encourage people to succeed."
