Careers

Join the Waters True Value Family

The Waters story began in 1894, with GE Waters offering “a little bit of everything” to the small town of Manchester, KS. With the goal of pursuing a higher education for his children, GE moved his company to nearby Junction City in 1905. It was there that his grandson and great-grandson, Bob and Jim Waters, oversaw the largest expansion of the company, as well as its partnership with the True Value Company.

Today, Waters operates one of the largest and most respected groups of True Value stores in the country. With over 120 years in the hardware industry, five generations of Waters leadership and over 200 dedicated team members serving 7 communities in Kansas, Waters True Value strives everyday to continue the original vision of G.E. by providing quality products and great service.

We’re always on the lookout for knowledgeable, helpful individuals to join our team.  Waters offers competitive pay, holidays, employee discounts and other benefits.  We offer both part-time opportunities and options for those wanting to move in a new career direction.
