OUR KIND OF WORK

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.

My family has been working for years in agriculture, so this is what I grew up doing. I like that there are new challenges every day. Key is a good place to work when you like learning new things.

Key Coop has provided countless opportunities to learn about grain and agronomy, and work with many friendly faces. Whether dumping trucks at the elevator, delivering product to a grower, or scouting thousands of acres, I've always enjoyed getting the job done for our customers.

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!

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.

The diversity of the work that I do ensures that no day is like any other. I also always know that if I can’t solve or answer a customer’s question that there is always someone else able and willing to help out.   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.

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.
