Employee Testimonials

 

James Butler, Associate since 1971

“My mom was one of the first people that was hired when Jones opened up Avondale plant. My dad was already working for them. When I first started, most all the work was done by hand. We loaded the balls. We hammered the bales of cotton by hand.”


“Everybody wanted to work for Jones, because it was a steady job and they paid a decent wage. I was looking for a steady job so that I could provide for my family. That’s what I was looking for, and I found one. And I stuck with it."


“I honestly believe they care about their employees. I believe it because I’ve seen it in my own life.”

 

Scott Butler, Vice President of Operations:

“Everybody’s not cut out for it. The ones that are, I guess they say it’s really in your blood.”


 “Everybody in Humboldt knew that if you could get on at Jones, you had a job.”


 “The core value that this company really stands on is family. People-oriented, trustworthiness, all of these things, but when you think about that, it still comes back to a core of family."


 “Your last name does not have to be Jones. When you’re part of this culture, then you’re part of the family.”
