WCCO Belting is a family business that manufactures high-quality, custom rubber conveyor belting for agricultural machines and industrial equipment. Our Business Development team works with new and existing customers to design new products. Our Supply Chain, Operations, and Maintenance teams are the working gears that take the design and turn it into a belt. They design and source raw materials, build and maintain our equipment, and hone our processes to drive efficiency. We also have Finance, Human Resources, and IT professionals to drive our success. Our business has been named multiple times as one of the areas’ Best Places to Work.
Our belting products are used for planting and harvesting food, road construction, luggage conveying, and getting those online orders to your front door. If you think about it, our products are all around you! We’ve been operating for almost 70 years and serve a unique target market. For recruiting, a business in a small town doesn’t stick around for long if they don’t treat people right. We use word-of-mouth advertising and reward employees for recruiting people they trust to work side-by-side with, mainly family and friends. But you don’t need a referral, just walk right in our front door and ask for an application or apply online!
Our compensation package is competitive with other area businesses. Benefits include but aren’t limited to paid-time-off, health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, 401K retirement planning, tax-free healthcare spending accounts (HSA program), an employee recognition program, profit sharing (bonus) program, celebratory lunches and birthday cakes and more! Our CREW team drives our health and wellness initiatives and organizes monthly recreation activities and events involving education and teambuilding. Our company is also partnered with The Village Family Service Center to provide you and anyone in your household additional support (family member or otherwise).
We’ll teach you! We don’t expect you to have belting or manufacturing experience when starting your career with us. WCCO’s Training & Standards Department has developed over 90 training courses – and counting – for our unique products and processes that will turn you into an expert in your field. And throughout your journey, your coworkers will offer you help and answer your questions because they were new once, too.
All our careers can be filled by anyone. As a matter of fact, almost half of our production workforce is women! There are a variety of different types of work centers on the production floor, so you can find the area that suits you best. We’ll also train you to operate safely in that area to safeguard your physical health.
A million times, yes! Our raw materials are engineered with extremely technical performance properties. The superior products we design – and often patent – are sought after by customers all over the world. Manufacturing our products requires custom-built equipment that’s so top secret that we don’t allow it to be photographed! And even the systems technology to run our equipment is original. We could go on, but if you want to see for yourself, please come in for a tour!
We take pride in building and maintaining a safe and comfortable environment for you. Our factory floor is spacious and brightly lit, and our operations team does a great job of keeping their work centers organized. Different types of activities occur in different areas of the building depending on where a product is in the manufacturing process, so you can find the best fit for your work style. And air-conditioned break room is loaded with refreshments for purchase, refrigerators for storage, multiple microwaves and complimentary coffee!
Our factory floor is brightly lit, open and spacious. When the weather permits, we open our garage doors throughout the facility for fresh air and sunlight. Some of our equipment gives off heat, so a cool breeze can be a blessing whether it’s from the open doors or the multiple fans we have at each work center. In the heat of July, you might be surprised with popsicles and cool treats, and employees can relax in our air-conditioned break room.
We are a safety-first manufacturer and proud member of the North Dakota Safety Council. We have a certified group of employees who are trained first responders for medical emergencies of any kind. Related to production, because our equipment is custom-built onsite by our talented engineers and maintenance team, we control the installation of significant safety measures for additional protection. You will be trained, many times over, to operate and work around the equipment we have in our building. If our methods and processes are followed as designed, there is no risk to your safety.
We listen! We have a unique Process Improvement Program that gives every employee a voice starting on your first day. Since its launch in 2014, we’ve implemented about 1600 employee ideas! Every idea is reviewed by a mid-level, cross-functional team for quick-decision making and implementation. Each month, we draw names for prizes from employees who shared feedback that led to improvements big and small.
1st Shift: 7AM to 3PM ; 2nd Shift: 3PM to 11PM ; 3rd Shift: 11PM to 7AM
We don't ask you to rotate shifts. We know that it’s important for your health and wellness, as well as that of your family, to maintain a schedule. You tell us the shift that works best for you, and we’ll do our best to accommodate. When personal appointments such as doctor visits or parent-teacher conferences occur during your shift, we encourage you to put family first and allow you to attend your event and then return to your shift. And if you are a parent, we try to be flexible based on your requirements at home.
