Over the past 3 years I have nothing but good experiences with WR. The supervisors motivate us to do our best while having fun with new and old friends. The hard work pays off when you receive all your pay cheques at the end of the season.

Corn detasseling isn’t easy, having to wake up at six o’clock in the morning to walk through soaking wet rows, and work in really hot weather. But WR has great crew leaders with funny jokes, good training and good safety which helps a lot. Overall it’s a great time!

The WR Detasseling working season fits perfectly with my summer schedule. There are enough hours to make money but not to exhaust us. I enjoy working with old and new friends. The hard work is not only rewarded by money, but also with a good entry on my resume.

WR pays well, never overworks us, and the crew leaders make work fun. The season just flies by! Our crew has some good times. Also as long as you work hard and maintain a good attitude, you can move up quickly in the company.
