“The past 22 years working with the talented team members of the Cooperative Elevator Co. has been the best opportunity! My experience at the Ruth Plant has been great, and my duties include customer service and business office responsibilities. I recently joined the Accounting Team helping with accounts payable as well. I enjoy working with the patrons and my coworkers at a safe, productive workplace. We are fortunate to have exceptional patrons who care about the Coop, and we work hard to provide them great products and excellent customer service!”
“What I like most about working at the Coop is the flexibility. Over the past 16 years I’ve been able to move around within the company as different jobs became open. I’ve never felt “stuck” in one job during my career here. It’s very nice being able to move around and help other plants as needed. Overall, it’s been nothing but a good experience working at the Coop.”
“During my 22 years of service at the Cooperative Elevator Co I have worked in many different areas. While the jobs are different, the goals are the same – everyone working together to get the job done. Overall a great company to work for with the opportunity to advance. The Coop is very focused on employee safety, and I really enjoy, and take pride in working here.”
“My career with the Cooperative Elevator Co. started in the Summer of 2019 when I was an intern based at the Pigeon Fertilizer location. My experiences that summer working with the Coop agronomists across the Thumb was excellent, as I was able to gain hands-on experience in the field and on the technical side of agronomy. After graduating with a degree in Agriculture Business Management in 2020, I returned to the company to apply the skills I gained through my internship and my college career to provide agronomy consulting
