NURTURING GROWTH THROUGH EXPERIENCE
Opportunity for Growth
You’re always able to grow here. Our company is really good at pushing people forward. They’re always trying to find someone to move into another role, or to give you more responsibility. And you learn so much.
— Jessica Barrett, Feed Marketer
We treat each other like family here. We’re not a number, we don’t belong to a publicly-traded corporation. We are somebody.
— Delmer Stanko, Operations Manager, Wilbur-Ellis
Opportunity for Growth
Wilbur-Ellis has been an incredible company to work for. Coming up on 10 years when I reflect back, it’s given me a lot of opportunities and a chance to learn about an industry that I wasn’t familiar with, and career growth and development as well. I think it’s really good. You don’t want to be stagnant, you want to grow and you want to have a path, and that’s the key.
— Joshua Hansen, Marketing Production Manager
A Shared Purpose
When I look out at the fields, they’re not just fields anymore. I like to think that I have something to do with the crops that are growing here. When I go to the grocery store, I don’t just see fruits and vegetables anymore. It makes you wonder – where is this coming from? Did I have something to do with it?
— Elena Martinez, Office Administration
