Careers at Olson’s

Culture and Benefits at Olson’s Sewer Service & Olson’s Excavating Service

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple: follow the Golden Rule and apply it to all Customer relationships.  We believe we have three Customers:

Clients-the people who have given us the opportunity to provide a service.

Employees-the people who deliver on the promises we make to our Customers.

Suppliers/Vendors-the people who provide us with the supplies and services we need to provide our service and create our product.

The team at Olson’s is committed to providing a quality result with safety top of mind and efficiency guiding the energy to get the job done.  ASK: How CAN we do this and achieve the results we promised our Customer and ourselves.

We have a very low turnover rate at Olson’s. Family is a priority and supporting what employees need to accomplish a work-life harmony is important and provided in offering flexibility in time off and delivering a benefit package that delivers medical care and retirement planning.
