Breaking Down the Corporate Stereotype

May 27, 2015

When most people hear the term “corporate job” their minds immediately flash to images of chaotic people working in an endless sea of cubicles, laboring away to please countless bosses who have never even bothered to learn their employee’s names. Well, I am here to tell you that not all corporate offices are like this.

While this stereotype may definitely exist among some corporate offices, Blain’s Supply Headquarters have broken away from the mold. As a family owned company, we are anything but unwelcoming. Blain Supply, Inc and Blain’s Farm & Fleet were built on the idea of providing their customers AND their associates with the best experience they can offer. This notion especially holds true at Blain Supply, Inc.

One associate, Greg, has described working at Blain Supply like working at a home away from home. “I feel like I am part of a family when I come to work, everybody is so welcoming and knows me by name. I feel comfortable expressing my ideas and my thoughts with my supervisors, because we have such a good relationship and I see them on a daily basis.”

Jane Blain Gilbertson, President and CEO, of Blain Supply, Inc and the Farm & Fleet stores, works daily in the office and can be seen often working alongside the office associates. “It is refreshing to be able to work for a company that truly cares about you. I feel valued, and here I am not just another body at the office” says Ronda, who has recently joined the Blain Supply team.

“At Blain Supply it’s not just about the work we do, it is about the atmosphere and environment that our associates work in” says Performance and Development Manager, Fred H. He believes, “Blain’s is different, and truly provides a collaborative working environment.”

As a company, Blain Supply, Inc. and Blain’s Farm & Fleet has worked hard over the years to fight of the negative stereotypes of big-box retailers and corporate office by staying true to its dedication to providing customers and associates with meaningful relationships and an exceptional service they can count on. So next time you think of a “corporate job,” think of Blain Supply, Inc. and the opportunity to work for a company that treats its associates like family.
