Krystal Tyndall has been with AgCareers.com since mid-2013 and serves as the company’s HR Services Associate. Krystal works closely with Mary Barefoot, Director of HR Services, in the Clinton, North Carolina office.
What do you do on a day-to-day basis in your role with AgCareers.com?
Day to day I interact with other HR professionals seeking compensation, payroll, and human resource-related data for their company. Being part of the HR Services Team for AgCareers.com keeps me up to date with trends in the industry. We conduct market research and feedback-detailed reports to other ag industry businesses.
What do you enjoy about working with AgCareers.com?
AgCareers.com is a niche job board, and working here has allowed me to continue to serve the ag community and work closely with HR professionals in all types of industries. It never is the same, repetitive work. My job keeps me on my toes and forward thinking. I have an agricultural background and enjoy learning more each day about the industry that is continually growing in the number of career opportunities available.
What advice would you give to employers using AgCareers.com for the first time?
AgCareers.com can fit the needs of any business, small to large – take the time to look at what we offer, the experience we all have, and our goal in feeding you high-quality talent. If you don’t have the time to research us, try us out – you won’t be disappointed.
What is one of your favorite memories while working with AgCareers.com?
I enjoy our team retreats and getting to know more and more about the people that aren’t in our home office. We are a global company and it is nice to connect with everyone. We all have a heart for the ag industry.
In your spare time, what do you like to do on weekends?
My husband and I own a row crop (flue-cured tobacco, sweet potatoes, grains, and other produce-related crops) and swine operation, so our free time is limited. But we enjoy spending time with our 2 boys on the farm: riding four wheelers, hunting, and teaching them to be good stewards of the land. When time permits, we enjoy taking a ride to Holden Beach for a quick stay. We also take an annual North Carolina mountain trip to let the children harvest a Christmas tree. We are NC State fans and love watching all types of sports!
Name your favorite snack and one thing you can’t live without while working.
Typically a good cup of coffee first thing, maybe two! I have a sweet tooth and I enjoy a cold Coca-Cola too.
Favorite book and favorite movie?
I enjoy reading all of the Nicholas Sparks books. I usually read a book in one to two sittings. I love to watch all types of movies, and I am looking forward to watching Miracles from Heaven and God’s Not Dead 2.
