F.W. Webb currently has over 20 active co-ops working throughout the company.
In January, the corporate office engaged in a new and unique program with Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School of Methuen, MA. The school employs the students through its work-study program. The money students earn directly helps finance their education. They learn the real-world lesson of providing for themselves while working in a professional office environment.
Work-study programs not only help students with their growth and development but also provide Webb with employees, which is a great benefit in this challenging recruiting environment.
