Meet The Team: Arthur Howell

Have you ever wondered who is answering your customer service calls at Jain Irrigation? This is “Meet The Team” – a series that’ll get you up close and personal with those who work inside the walls of 2851 E Florence Ave.

Here at Jain we developed six questions scientifically designed to give you a well rounded view of our team and also suggest profound insights about these people’s personalities as a whole (we actually have no science for that, but we stand by it).

1. What is your job at Jain?

My job at Jain is a Technical Service Representative. I’m the person you talk to when you have questions about our products. I also help create AutoCad drawings on how to plumb our valves and may even take a trip to the fields if a valve needs some hands on attention. One of my favorite parts about my job is helping out with marketing and setting up the events. Just recently I was able to go to Vegas and help set up the booth for the Irrigation Association show and it was such an unforgettable experience.

2. What are some of your hobbies away from work?

My hobby is my family! They take up all my spare time and I love it. Everyday when I get home from work my 3 year old son shouts “Daddy!” and gives me the biggest hug ever. When my three teenagers and little one are not causing chaos in the house you will find us playing Rock Band or board games. I save Sundays for binge watching Netflix with my wife.

3. Penthouse or country cottage?

Penthouse for sure! I like the nightlife of a busy city and experiencing the culture and the food that surrounds it. Being able to just walk to different places and get a taste of everything is my idea of a good time.

4. First concert?

The first concert I attended was not as an audience member but as a performer. I was first chair and I played the baritone saxophone. I was able to perform in clubs all over town, I even performed once at Disneyland.

5. If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life what would it be?

This was a hard question for me because I love trying new foods all the time, but if I had to choose one it would be the classic bacon cheeseburger with fries.

6. Why do you love your job at Jain?

I love working at Jain because it gives me the opportunity to learn and help others with knowledge. I also love being a part of the trade shows. But most of all I love the Jain Team and I feel so grateful to be a part of it.
