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.

Key Cooperative Benefits
Our employees are our most important asset, and we treat them as such.
What’s important to you is important to us
At Key Cooperative, we believe in developing talent internally, and promoting from within. That’s why we put professional and personal development at the very top of our benefits package. We are always evaluating our benefits to make sure they are competitive within our industry.
Benefits at a Glance
“I like it at Key Coop because they respect your ideas. There is plenty of opportunity to learn different things if you want to. I personally like the opportunity to learn more and help in other areas of the company. My favorite part is hauling from the farm and getting acquainted with the customers. I do what I can to keep them happy and as repeat customers. If it happens to be a new customer, hopefully I can make them a repeat customer by how I serve them.”
“The diversity of the work that I do ensures that no day is like any other. Key is a very family-oriented place to work — I’ve always had the support and coverage to be able to attend to family matters and events.”
Scott Van Soelen
Feed Truck Driver
“The Key Feed Department is a great place to work. The opportunity to work with this many awesome individuals each day makes coming to work a pleasure. I also enjoy the opportunity to continually take care of the our customers in the best way possible.”
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.”
“Key is a good company to work for with excellent pay and benefits. There are good people to work for and top of the line equipment. I like being outside and taking care of a customer’s needs.”
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.
