Careers at Key
A place where you can grow
We’re a sort of family at Key Cooperative. Our people — and our equipment — are important to us, and we take care of both. We can crack jokes and plan parties and celebrate life together. But we know when it’s time to get serious and down to business. And we’ve got each other’s backs — from our members’ to our employees’. We work hard, play hard and care more than most because this is our kind of passion. And our leaders, our peers, our members alike get that, because it’s their kind of passion too.

Seed/Agronomy Operations Attendant
“Although I was an intern and relatively new to the area, Key Cooperative provided a fun, loving and accepting work environment. Even after my internship, Key continued to take an interest in me by helping me transition into life as a full-time employee. That is why I love my #KeyKindOfCareer.”
“When I started at Key Cooperative, I was honestly just looking for a job. Throughout the 11 years I have worked at Key, I have had the opportunity to grow both in my professional and personal life. My coworkers and customers have become friends and family. One of the most important things to me, now, as a mom is how flexible and family friendly Key Cooperative is. I was able to progress in my career and achieve my dream job all while being a mom!"
CENTROL Operations Leader
“I was a custom applicator for ten years and really enjoyed getting to know a lot of customers. I got to work hand-in-hand with them to better serve their needs, and then I was able to grow in the company to a completely different position, moving from Custom Applicator/Maintenance into the position of CENTROL Operations Leader. I love working at Key!”
Grow Into Your Career at Key
We like to develop talent from within. Here’s how.
Professional development and leadership training are a way of life.
Boyd Brodie, our General Manager, makes no secret of the fact that he likes to promote from within. So anyone in our organization who wants to improve their skills, take on more responsibility and move up—or try something new—is given every opportunity to do so. Through both on-site as well as off-site training and leadership opportunities, you’ll have the freedom and the responsibility to go as far as your talents can take you.
