Meet the Women of Waynes & Their Real-Life Bug Story!
In celebration of International Women's Day, we want to introduce you to the Women of Waynes, well some of them! If we showcased each of the amazing wonder women of Waynes, we would break the internet, so here are just a few of the invaluable women who make the daily operations at Waynes run smoothly.
Each of these ladies has a life outside of their job here Waynes, whether it is being a mother, wife, caretaker, or friend, they juggle the world of work and personal with integrity, courage, perseverance, and character.
Pam McGoogan| 26 years
Waynes 1st female Field Professional
Most proud that her route is a well-organized machine and that in 26 years, there has never been a month that Pam didn't have 100% completion in her route allowing her to help her fellow Team Members finish their routes. She has also never called into work sick in 26 years.
She takes care of her routes and customers balances. I am my business, "if they don't pay, Pam don't spray"
She is all of 4'11 and full of fury & also has a heart of gold!
Pam is inspired by the connection at Waynes. There is always guidance and support, whether it be helping you to run your route efficiently, to offering financial and spiritual guidance - anything you need, somebody is willing to help you and support you not only in your work life but your personal life as well. Always trying to make you a better person both professionally and personally. "It's just a cool place to work, can't imagine being anywhere else, this is home"
