John Bachmeier started working in March of 1982 at the Williston Store, setting up machinery. Since then, he has gone back and forth between working in sales and being a service manager. He says that whenever someone thought they were better at doing his job he would have to go and take it back from them! In his 36-year career, he has seen many changes in agriculture with the development of new technology. When he first started there was no auto steer and no section command on a drill. As he put it, “everything has changed and it is a totally different world.”
John says that he enjoys working with customers and getting to know them is his favorite part about working for a John Deere dealer. He thinks that working in Williston gives him a great group of people to work with every day, and he hopes to hell he met his sales goal!
