    The telecommunications industry is incredibly interesting and exciting to work in. Keeping up with the ever-changing technology can be challenging at times, but is always immensely rewarding. We are all dedicated to best serving our member-owners and provide the best possible experience and services. It is a wonderful environment and employee experience when a team is as cohesive as ours. Working with cutting-edge technology and serving the best customers in rural South Dakota is an honor.

    Being a single mother, I have always appreciated the generous PTO and the flexibility Santel extends to me.  I have been able to attend out-of-town sports activities, get to doctor/dentists appointments and be home when he is sick.  It really reduces the stress and allows me to focus on family.

    I started at Santel as a staff accountant and 11 years later I became the Customer Service Manager. Those first years I was given opportunities to work with several different departments and I learned so much about this industry that it allowed me to grow and advance in my career. We have a great team of experienced staff who will be available to assist the next generation of employees who want opportunities for advancement.

    Santel is a great company! I am very thankful I chose Santel for my career which spanned over 33 years. The benefits that Santel offers are second to none and I feel privileged to have been able to work alongside so many great co-workers. One of my life goals was to be able to retire at a younger age in order to spend more quality time with my children and grandchildren and pursue my hobbies while young enough to enjoy them. Santel’s excellent savings and retirement benefits have allowed me to achieve this early retirement goal with a high level of financial security.
