My Orenco Story

Jerry, Area Sales Manager

My degrees are in mechanical engineering technology and marketing, and my work experience had been with pumps and rotating equipment. When I applied at Orenco, I’d been working in field sales and sales management for many years. Orenco offered the opportunity to expand into wastewater treatment.

One thing I really like is that Orenco’s not an “operating unit” of a larger corporation. The people who own the company are engaged daily in the business, with direct knowledge of the industry. Also, Orenco’s not driven exclusively by sales. The culture here is more centered on providing the customer the best we have to offer. Sales happen when the customer is served properly. As a result, I, as a sales employee, am not subject to suffering the pressure to do whatever it takes to close a sale. Instead, I have satisfied customers returning to me for help in providing products and services on new projects.


My Orenco Story

Misti, Production & Logistics Supervisor

I applied here because my friend Pete highly recommended it. He loved Orenco, loved the owners, and said it felt like a small company even though it wasn’t. They also had great insurance, which was critical since I’d recently finished treatment for non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

I was 20 years old when I got hired as a temporary production tech at Orenco. Since then, I’ve been promoted to lead tech and then production supervisor positions. I’ve also started my 401(k), my husband and I got married in Jamaica, and I’ve had two babies. Basically, I love this company and all it’s done for me and my family. The owners are amazingly friendly and down-to-earth people who care about their employees – all 300+ of us. Plus, I love what I do and the people I work with. I plan to retire from here. I love being empowered to do my job and the communication I have with my manager – it’s amazing.


Working Orenco-Style

We’re a team

We work hard when we’re here, support our fellow employees, and make sure our efforts help advance Orenco’s vision.

We keep learning

It’s important to always add to our skill sets, so we talk with our supervisors and take advantage of opportunities to learn more and do more, both as employees and as individuals.

We communicate

We share information about work-related problems and opportunities with our co-workers and supervisor. This makes life easier for everybody and helps Orenco improve.

We’re nice people

It sounds simplistic, but it’s important. Being kind to each other and easy to work with are a huge part of what makes this a great place to be.

We’re proactive

When a problem needs to be addressed, we deal with it openly, honestly, and offer solutions. When we see an opportunity for growth, we work with our team and our supervisor to take advantage of it.

We ask good questions

If we don’t know the answer to something, we find someone who does. There are no “dumb” questions here. We strive to create an environment where everyone can get answers and gain knowledge.

We’re balanced

Making sure we maintain a good work/life balance helps us be the kind of people others enjoy being around. We’re effective at work and well-balanced in life.

Work/Life Balance

Finding the right balance between work and the rest of your life can be a challenge sometimes. We want you to do an excellent job at work, but we also want you to have a happy life. We love where we live: lots of great people, great food and wine, and easy access to the great outdoors.
