CAREERS

“Since my first day at Mahaska over 15 years ago, I’ve been a part of a team where the employees are given the chance to help make decisions and share their ideas to help our company grow strong. I am so happy to be a part of a family owned business that truly cares about their employees and strives to make our community a better place. I’ve grown with the company during these 15 years, starting as a part-time Weekend Merchandiser and now as the Chief Marketing Officer. I’ve never forgotten what originally brought me to Mahaska, which was the opportunity to be a part of a team composed of happy, hard working people who distribute products that make people smile!”
