Black History Month presents an opportunity to acknowledge the sacrifices and celebrate triumphs made by African Americans to our communities, industry, and company. This month, we're honoring the Black experience by amplifying Team Member voices across Tractor Supply and the value they bring to Life Out Here.
"As a new Store Manager at Tractor Supply, I have had the great opportunity to open the 2000th store. This honor was made possible by the support of knowledgeable leaders, the surrounding community, and an amazing team. This experience has been one of the most monumental moments of my career. The team environment, mission and values, and family culture that I have encountered daily continues to drive me toward success. I find that I am now empowered to enlighten others about our powerful mission and values and the Legendary service that Tractor provides. I look forward to my future with the company and am proud to be a part of this ever changing and growing team."

“Coming from more of an urban background to Tractor seven years ago, I wondered if Tractor Supply Company would be a career opportunity that would be embracive. I can say with confidence that Tractor has been, and continues to be, a worthwhile professional experience where my unique personal lens and breadth of experiences have been both welcomed and challenged in productive ways. With Tractor, I’ve met some of the smartest people, participated in some of the most engaging conversations, and been a part of some of the most creative teams. I can say without hesitation that I have grown more personally and professionally during the last seven years than in the fifteen years prior.”
