Hear from a few of our Bethel Mill employees about their career journey and the culture at Hancock Lumber. Cain Davidowicz, Kyle Tracy, Ellis Williams and Seth Haynes tell us the ways in which they have developed professionally and how Hancock Lumber supports them personally.
“At Hancock Lumber, we look for opportunities in people every day. We want people to move into positions where they feel valued. Years ago somebody saw value and potential in me and it’s now my turn to give that to others. That is the culture we have around here – everybody leads; our people express their opinions and showcase what they have to offer. That kind of a culture opens doors for everybody.” –Ellis Williams, Quality Control Supervisor
“Before Hancock Lumber, I worked my whole professional life as a chef. I was an executive sous chef at Sunday River, but after my son was born it became too demanding to have a family life in that industry. I was looking for something with more flexibility and Hancock Lumber offered that to me. I started working here not knowing a thing about sawmills and they’ve worked with my every step of the way. I believe almost anyone can find something they are good at in a sawmill, planer mill, or retail. The culture is extremely professional yet laid back, and it’s a big shift in dynamic (that I hadn’t experienced before) where your family life can come first.” –Cain Davidowicz, Head Saw Filer
