Working at the PUD

As one of the most innovative public utilities in the country, we recognize our success is a direct result of the commitment and talents of the people who work for us. We’re proud of our long-standing reputation as one of the best places to work in the area and we seek talented people to keep us moving forward. At Chelan PUD, your work contributes directly to the betterment of your community.  

We uphold four values, which describe the culture and character of Chelan PUD. Equally important, the values demonstrate “how” the PUD approaches its list of “what” to do for the near future. Our employees exhibit these values: Safety, Stewardship, Trustworthiness and Operational Excellence.

We employ a broad range of talented people – line workers, engineers, administrative support, analysts, information technology professionals, mechanics, wiremen, customer service representatives, parks workers, accountants, and biologists, to name a few.

Approximately 55% of our highly skilled workers are represented by International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local No. 77, which shares the rich heritage of the utility.

Chelan PUD is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer (EO M/F/Disability/Vet Employer), providing equal opportunity in employment and advancement for all qualified persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status or any other basis protected by applicable law.

Chelan PUD recognizes the valuable diverse skills veterans bring to the workforce. We are a proud participant of the YesVets Program and are committed to veteran employment at Chelan PUD. 

Our success depends on all of us working collaboratively in a collegial, mutually respectful environment. Discrimination and harassment have no place at our organization. Every Chelan PUD employee has a role to play in ensuring that this is a great place to work, and together, we’re building a workplace that supports diversity, equity, and inclusion, reflecting the vibrant communities we serve.

We also promote a drug-and alcohol-free workplace and integrate safety into all aspects of our daily operations.

At Chelan PUD, you’ll find challenging, rewarding, and meaningful work and opportunities to learn and grow, coupled with competitive pay and excellent benefits.
