In their own words
THE POSEY FAMILY
“My brother, Don worked at Wagman and had good things to say about the company. I was a Salesman for an auto parts supply company. Wagman was one of my customers, I got to know the people at the shop and the mechanics. They were a great group of people and I told one of them that if he ever left, I wanted his job. When that person took a new job within a different division of Wagman, I applied for the position and got it. I have enjoyed working for Wagman for over 29 years and have encouraged my son to work at Wagman. He began as an engineering intern and now works here full time.”
THE BIXLER FAMILY
"My father always said, 'like father like daughter,' so no surprise when I was given the opportunity to work at Wagman with him, I did. When I was younger there was a Take Your Child to Work event. I tagged along with my dad to one of his jobs. Did I think about doing construction then? Nope! But when that opportunity came to me about becoming an operator at Wagman, I said why not? Since then, I have been a part of the Wagman team in the field for nine years. Now that I started my own family, Wagman has worked with me to continue to be a part of their team, now as an office admin for years to come. I couldn’t be more grateful for the understanding and the family-oriented mindset of this company."
THE COPPAGE FAMILY
“The Wagman family is engaged and they really care about the people that work for the company. My sister moved to York to be closer to family and when a spot opened up within the company, I told her it was a great opportunity. She got the job and couldn’t be happier. My daughter has used her summer breaks from college as an opportunity to work for the company too. At Wagman, having families as part of the team is seen as a strength. What the company gets in return are truly committed employees.”
