Why People Love to Work Here: “We are a team in every sense of the word. Team members love our casual, family atmosphere. Each team member is treated and cared about as if they are family. Broken Arrow team members get to be involved in and make key decisions that impact their jobs and their customers on a regular basis. Suggestions for improvement are welcome and encouraged. Decisions that impact Broken Arrow are based on what is good and right for our customers, our entire staff and the company.”

Fun Things: “We had a company picnic this summer with some highly competitive (and spectators might say hilarious) kickball action. We celebrated our 25th anniversary last summer and invited the entire community for free pizza and brews. Everyone had a great time. We even printed T-shirts with an image of the Des Moines skyline. We make silly videos on occasion. Check out our Harlem Shake.”

Recent Culture Initiatives: “We believe that job satisfaction is key to both our company’s success and to achieving the best customer service possible, which is one of our primary goals. If our employees are happy, that will radiate to our community and to our customer base. We offer employee incentives and rewards for things like fast customer callback, best customer service, etc. We have discovered that the more training we do, the more comfortable and secure our employees are, which makes for better customer service.” – Jackie Deppe, art manager
