Don’t let our name fool you. Sure, we may know a thing or two about tractors. But at Tractor Supply Company, it’s far from our only specialty. Our loyal customers come to us for expertise, advice, and thousands of products every day—from lawn and animal care products to equipment, and even clothing. It’s helped make us an important part of the communities we serve, and one of the nation’s fastest growing retail organizations.
Founded in 1938 by Charles E. Schmidt, Sr. as a mail order tractor parts business, today Tractor Supply is the largest operator of retail farm stores in America. Our stores are located in rural communities and in the outlying areas of large cities—“Out Here”—where people feel a deep connection with their land. Our customers are as diverse as the products we carry: from farmers and ranchers to pet owners and hobbyists, construction and trades people, and suburban landowners. No matter what they’re looking for, they all get the individual attention and service that have become hallmarks of Tractor Supply stores around the country.
Our Mission is to Work Hard, Have Fun and Make Money and we live by Values such as Ethics, Respect , Teamwork and Accountabilty. We are community minded and support 4H, FFA and AQHA. We call our sustainability program “Stewardship” because we know that we have to be good stewards of the land and our natural resources so that our children and future generations will have the same opportunities we enjoy today.
We are always looking for great team members for our Stores, Distribution Centers and in our Store Support Center in Brentwood, TN.
A publicly traded company (TSCO), today Tractor Supply is increasing its store count and expanding into more states. It’s an exciting time to be a part of Tractor Supply as we take our business in bold new directions. If you’re passionate about service and looking for a place where you can put down roots and grow, join us.
Our Culture and Mission and Values provide the overarching guidelines in determining who we are, how we work, and the fulfillment we receive from our work. The pillars of our culture are:
- Values: Our values are written on cards we all carry, they hang in our break rooms, in our offices and on our meeting room walls. They are so much more than simply words on a page; they are clear, consistent and they determine whom we invite on the team and whom we ask to leave the team. They are understood, they are shared and they have a spirit that is in all of us.
- Ethics: As a result of our dedication to our values, and the clear understanding held by all of our team members, we behave individually and collectively in an ethical way in our professional and personal lives. It is a simple yet powerful approach.
- Trust: We have shared values and ethics which create a trusting environment. The capacity to trust each other to trust the company, allows us to do our best work, to provide constructive feedback and to speak and hear the truth in a safe environment.
- Risk Taking: People and companies only make progress when risks are taken. Risks are more likely to be taken in an environment based on shared values, ethics and trust. Our customers depend on us to take risks to find the new idea, the new product and the new process.
- Collaboration: We believe that everyone wants and deserve to work in a collaborative environment. Great things happen when ideas and experiences are shared and when groups of people become a team. We also recognize that while we all want to work in a collaborative way, we must all be dedicated to do our part. Each if us must take the lead to lead in teamwork and encourage others to join us.
- Hard Work: Tractor Supply Company performed very well over the last decade and throughout the recession. We have added thousands of jobs, improved our benefit plans, paid bonuses and rewarded shareholders. We work hard, and as a result, we are securing our future and the future of every team member who works hard, works smart and adds to our success.
- Passion: It is our hope that each team member finds their job so challenging and so rewarding that they feel a real passion for their work, their team and their customers. We believe that true and sustainable success for each team member and the company is only consistently achieved when people are excited about their work, their customers and Tractor Supply Company.
- Your Role: As a new member of the Tractor Supply Company team you now have the responsibility to practice, teach, and protect our culture. I know you are up to the task and again extend my welcome to our great company and our great team.

Training is a high priority at Tractor Supply Company. Our loyal customers look to us for much more than our product line. They look to us for expertise, ideas and seasoned advice from people who live, and love, this lifestyle and have literally "been there and done that."
Think that means you don’t know enough to work here? Think again. Our career Team Members - at all levels - come to us from different backgrounds. Some have expertise in agriculture. Some have accounting and IT experience. Some know retail. But what they share is a willingness to learn, a passion for service, an appreciation of people, and their ability to know a great growth opportunity when they see it.
Here, training is not just something you "go through" as a new Team Member. Our Tractor University programs cover everything from Management Skills to product knowledge to closing the sale. From formalized classroom training to hands-on learning exercises, to exciting seminars that enhance your leadership skills, you’ll have hundreds of learning opportunities over the life of your career.
And our training staff is as good as it gets: imagine, sitting down with our Chairman and CEO, Jim Wright, or meeting with President and Chief Merchandising Officer, Greg Sandfort, or Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Stan Ruta. It’s not often that you’ll see this level of executive involvement in the training of each and every Team Member. But at Tractor Supply, we’re a team. We share our knowledge and expertise so you can get to know everything you need to know to serve our customers better, make us a better company, and build a brighter career. We call it "Tractorization," but you’ll call it your personal opportunity to learn our company inside and out.
Our customers’ satisfaction depends on the knowledge, skill and initiative of our Team Members. Our future does, too. We’re committed to the success of every Tractor Supply Team Member, and to helping you develop the talent and potential you will need to pursue tomorrow’s opportunities.
“You come away from Tractor University with much more than a deeper-level understanding of our organization; these courses give you an opportunity to examine your strengths and weaknesses, to analyze your management style and leadership techniques, and to take what you’ve learned to a personal level. My time at Tractor U made me a stronger leader overall. It’s helped me focus on the growth and development of my own store team, and we’re all stronger because of it.”
“Our Management Skills Training Program is an amazing experience. Not only did I come away with the tools and knowledge I need to run my own store, but with an understanding that our mission and values are real. That the culture built on them is important to senior management. That everyone plays an important part on this team. Where else would new retail managers get a chance to sit down and interact with senior management, including the Chairman of the Board? I’ve worked in retail for 10 years, and I’ve never worked for a company where the people were more approachable. I came away understanding just how special this opportunity is.”
Bowling Green, OH
“Through our Advanced Leadership Program, I was able to gain an MBA-level understanding of concepts at the heart of every business, from negotiation to strategic planning, financing, branding and marketing. It’s an intensive, two-year curriculum that also gives you the opportunity to network with individuals in different areas of responsibility, get a better understanding of our business units, and discuss career pathing with our executives. It was definitely a career benefit to me!”
