Wasco is dedicated to the health and safety of its team members. This position requires full-time presence in the building, where many measures are in place to combat the spread of COVID-19. Wasco team members are considered essential workers as Wasco is included in two CISA-defined Critical Infrastructure Workforces (Critical Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base).
At Wasco, words matter. There is a reason we have “team members” and not employees. When you are part of a team, it’s important to know not only what you are working towards but also what you are working for. An employee has a job and works for a boss. A team member has a role and works towards a purpose. We use what we have, communicate, collaborate, and cooperate. We don’t quit when we hit an obstacle because we believe progress happens one step at a time. The Wasco team is like a family, we respect, encourage and support each other, in good times and hard times. If you can’t laugh at yourself or you can’t stand Tri-Tip, potlucks, and donuts, you don't need to apply.
