CAREERS

“To me it’s a stable, reliable career. We’re owned by farmers, and as long as there is business to be done on the farm, we’ll be part of it.”


Rewards for Your Commitment

The nature of our business at Country Partners Cooperative sometimes calls for long days and more than 40-hour weeks to serve the needs of our farmer members – especially during planting and harvest. The rewards for this hard work, however, are many.  

There is the satisfaction of a job done right and the appreciation of a happy customer.  And there is the benefit of working for a cooperative that prides itself on taking care of its employees financially, emotionally and in their career growth.
