Jack Vanstrom

“Wow!” That’s what people usually say to Jack Vanstrom when they hear he’s been with Great Northern for 40 years. But Jack isn’t surprised that he’s been with the company that long. “They make you feel like you are part of a family. They’ll tell you when you’re doing good; they have no problem complimenting you. All of the different jobs I held, there was always a challenge, always something new you could do. They personally helped me evolve into a better a person and a better worker.”

Vanstrom especially appreciates being asked for input on new equipment and processes. “When they are considering putting new equipment in, they actually take some of us out to look at it. They
ask what we think about the equipment and take our input into consideration. That means a lot. It’s a good company to work for.”
