Located in Alexandria, just over two hours northwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul on I-94, you have the opportunity to work and live where thousands come to play and vacation in the heart of Minnesota’s lake country. Take a boat out on one of our 350 lakes in the summer and trade it in for an icehouse in the winter. In all seasons, you can hike a trail in Lake Carlos State Park or hike through our unique downtown shopping district. Alexandria is easy to find but hard to leave. Learn more about working, living, raising a family, and playing in the beautiful part of Minnesota we call home.

Unable to relocate to the Alexandria area? Some positions may offer the right candidates the opportunity to work from home. Some of our employees live as far away as Texas!
