Cook is hiring in Bloomington...

Error message

A couple days ago, an article ran in our local paper announcing Cook Medical's expansion and hiring needs. The article began: "The Cook companies in Bloomington are hiring. In fact, they’re hiring a lot of people — when they can find them.

"As of mid-July, the company had 158 openings for manufacturing jobs and 153 open office jobs at Cook facilities in or within 25 miles of Bloomington. That’s a lot of jobs looking for people to fill them. The work ranges across the spectrum — in sales, science, engineering, production, events coordination, regulatory, warehousing and cafeteria cooking. They’re hourly or salaried, day and night...

"Many of today’s hires are in quality assurance and information technology, areas company officials say have not kept pace with Cook’s huge growth since 2000, when revenue grew from $1 billion to more than $2 billion."

The article went on to say how hard it is for Cook to find people willing to live and work in the Midwest. If you like quarries more than hot tubs, summers more than saunas, corn more than kelp, Mike Pence more than Donald Trump, thunderstorms more than earthquakes, homes for $100 or $200 thousand more than condos for $1or $2 million, green more than brown, gardens more than haiku, and babies more than dogs and cats, why not have Cook take a look at you and move here to Southern Indiana?
