United Electric is 100% employee-owned. What that means is that we look for potential business partners to join us! After one year of service, employees 21 and older who work at least 1000 hours annually become eligible for our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
Stock ownership is just one of the benefits we offer. After your first 90 days, you get access to group health, dental, life and disability insurances, and participation in the 401(k) Plan.
Our employees also enjoy two weeks paid vacation during years 1-4 with the company, increasing with seniority all the way to 25 days a year; plus nine paid holidays annually, including two floating days. Our employees even get to take their birthday off! But the most important benefit of all is that we are a company that respects your need for reasonable hours and a healthy balance between your work life and your home life.
We believe in growing our own talent, promoting from within, and giving our employees the training and opportunity to go as far as their skills, intelligence, and desire will take them. We utilize a tool called the OAD survey to help our people increase their self-awareness and improve their working relationships. Watch the video below to see how the OAD has changed the way we hire and develop talent.
Our employees are valued for their contributions and their voices are heard. Does it get any better than that?
