Patience is Daniel Campbell’s strong suit.
He’ll try different bow-hunting vantage points for months, until he gets his large buck. And when fishing is slow, he’ll troll the Missouri River until he finds a school of walleye.
For Campbell, Basin Electric accounting analyst II, the same holds true for his workplace temperament. He specializes in meeting complex deadlines that sometimes take years.
Slow, steady – and exceptional attention to detail – wins the race when you’re in charge of helping Basin Electric meet new lease accounting standards. Campbell is making sure the cooperative is in full compliance by the Jan. 1, 2019, deadline.
He’s used to long waits. A 2-year software upgrade and continued education are among the bullet points on his resume.
It’s all part of a career path that started nearly 30 years ago, when Campbell graduated with a degree in business administration. He later went back to school to earn his accounting degree.
Campbell’s been working at Basin Electric Headquarters for three weeks, and his co-workers have made it an enjoyable transition.
“Basin Electric is starting to feel more like home,” he says. “People here are friendly.”
Campbell especially appreciates that the cooperative embraces a healthy work-life balance for its employees. It makes it easier for him to care for his mom.
“She always took care of us kids,” he says.
Family comes first at Basin Electric. It’s part of a larger commitment to cooperative, community and workforce.
Campbell is happy to have earned a job at Basin Electric. Having lived in Bismarck, ND, for most of his life, he says word of mouth has always given him the impression that there’s a friendly culture to be found in the big white building.
“The culture is key,” he says. “It bodes well for anyone who chooses to start their career at Basin Electric. It’s an employer of choice in the Bismarck-Mandan area.”
