All electric cooperatives are collaborators rather than competitors; we share a common goal to help all succeed. Among cooperative employees across the nation and specifically at CREC is a sense of pride in serving members. Employees work at CREC because they believe in what they do and receive the satisfaction of knowing that their work directly improves people's lives in the communities in which they also live.

CREC is responsible for providing safe, reliable, and affordable energy to its members. To fulfill that responsibility, we look for employees who are service-oriented and want to make a difference in the communities the cooperative serves. We look for those who are innovative, talented, and resourceful.

· Competitive compensation

· 401K matching and other retirement programs

· Comprehensive health insurance and other physical and mental wellness programs
