The Grass Is Definitely Greener With a Job at Rain Bird
Want to work for a company that’s been around the block a couple of times? Look no further than Rain Bird, an industry leader in irrigation products that was founded back in 1933 (yes, you read that correctly!) and has over 450 patents to its name.
Despite being over 80 years old, Rain Bird is innovating every day, and its culture is a testament to that. The team has a company-wide open-door policy, where employees can pop into the offices of managers and directors any time to discuss client relations and bring new ideas and solutions to the table.
“We’re really looked at as innovators. We’re a company that puts out high quality products, solves customer problems, and delivers solutions,” says Regional Sales Manager Brent Barkley.
Because so much is happening at Rain Bird at any given time, team members are also given full rein of their own agendas and schedules so that they can be as dynamic and productive as possible. It leads to a more open-minded, collaborative, and exciting work environment.
To reward employees for their hard work and dedication, Rain Bird has a “Fun Committee” to plan events that take people away from their desks for a little bit. The team also has an engineering awards luncheon, where managers recognize the accomplishments of team members.
“We have a results-oriented company, but we also like to have fun while we’re at work,” says Regional Sales Manager Christen Funk.
