ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?
OUR PEOPLE & CULTURE
Our passion for play goes beyond the products we sell. It’s evident everywhere in our newly-renovated Escalade headquarters. We believe we work best when we have fun doing it. Whether that means indoor Pickleball and basketball courts, or Club Max where employees can enjoy table tennis, billiards, and more, or to the state-of-the-art gym, we encourage employees to use the products they’ve designed, engineered, and marketed.
Come Play with Us. Get your shoes laced, dust off your cues, and tune-up that bow.
Here at Escalade, we do what we love and have an awesome time doing it. Escalade provides tremendous opportunities for smart entrepreneurial individuals looking to innovate the way families and friends spend time together. Our team members take ownership of their business while collaborating with industry experts, talented product developers, and supported by strong shared services. We strive to win, take on significant challenges and enjoy learning opportunities along the way.
We are committed to improving our game and look to build a bright, diverse team capable of surmounting large and small obstacles on our path to winning.
JR has worked in our Archery division at Escalade Sports since 2004. JR started as a customer service representative for Bear Archery and is now our Dealer Sales Manager, overseeing a team of nine sales representatives across the United States. What he enjoys most about his job is assisting his team's success.
What is JR's favorite aspect of working at Escalade? “Escalade has always been family friendly which is not always common in the workplace. There is a balance between home and work life that can be difficult at times. This place has always been flexible, allowing me to make time for my kids and wife. For that, I am very grateful.”
During his 19 years at Escalade, JR has worked on a variety of projects, but his favorite has been the creation of the annual Cajun 8 bowfishing tournament, which is a project that everyone on the team is passionate about. "This was a collaboration of many individuals coming together and making this one of the best bowfishing tournaments in the country."
Outside of the office, JR can be found building wood projects in his home workshop, where his machinery is constantly expanding, taking his son bowfishing, or cleaning the house on Saturday mornings.
JR's best career lesson thus far has been to always be humble and never think you know too much.
Escalade is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, Veteran or other legally protected status.
