WHY WORK WITH US?
I came to work for Malco in 2014 and immediately noticed the positive atmosphere and importance Malco places on its employees. I can easily brag about Malco's fantastic benefits, paid time off, wellness program, and educational/training opportunities. It's inspiring to work for a company who honestly wants to do right by their customers and employees. It would be easy to work for a different company to get a paycheck but not just any company can create a culture that makes me excited to come to work everyday.
- Kelly, Mailroom Clerk in Annandale, MN
Coming to Malco was one of the easiest decisions of my life. The most important thing to me about being here is that you are treated like family. It's been great so far to be a part of an employee owned company and I can't wait to see how we grow in the future.

I worked in shipping for 28 years. Malco as a company is great to work for. I enjoy working back in shipping with my family there.

He always calls back or answers any questions we have. Thanks so much Malco!
