A Note From Kacey Ragen 

“DeWys University allows the company to approach finding candidates to fill positions differently than ever before.

We now have the opportunity to find the right person and train him/her to be the right fit for a position. The University also allows us to stay true to the family values, which includes time for the “students” to fully understand the DeWys policies, procedures and core values.

The ultimate goal of the university is to “graduate” people into full functioning DeWys Team Members who are excited about their future with our company.”
