Carolyn Woerpel, Quality Assurance
I love going to garage sales and flea markets. There’s something about the allure of finding hidden treasure that peaks my interest. Widen has proven to be a hidden treasure for me. After 21 years, I was laid off by my former employer. During my job search I applied for a position at Widen. I had never heard of Widen before. Imagine my surprise when I entered the boardroom for my first interview and could see my former employer’s building through the window!
I am very grateful to be given an opportunity to work for such a good employer. Everyone I’ve met has been extremely friendly. People stop in the hallway to introduce themselves and find out a little bit about me. The employees here take great pride in their work. That is exactly the work environment I was looking for.
It’s the best of both worlds for me. I have a great job to come to every day, and I’m close enough to my former employer to meet old friends for lunch. It’s amazing to me that I found such a treasure, right in my former employer’s backyard.
