Working at Messick's

Messick's has been a family business ever since brothers Marlin and Merville Messick started the dealership in 1952. Over the years we've grown from a two-person operation to a company of over 220 people staffing five locations in south central Pennsylvania. Messick's remains a family business, operated by Merville's sons Bob and Ken and their children. We are a company dedicated to providing exceptional parts, service and sales support to our customers.

Messick's offers industry leading wages, 401k, paid vacation, health insurance and a Christ centered work environment. We strive to offer the best in customer service and believe it takes exceptional staff to deliver that promise.

We encourage you to submit your application as we collect resumes year-round. We do most of our hiring between September and November, however we will consider highly qualified individuals at any point throughout the year.

Employment Opportunities

Messick's seeks candidates who work best in a team environment and excel at providing top-notch customer service. Experience in agriculture or construction is a plus, but not required. Many positions require a valid driver's license, and the ability to lift in excess of 40lbs. Service technician positions require your own tools and a valid driver's license.

We strive to employ the best people in the business. Therefore we offer industry-leading wages, paid vacation, 401k, and no-cost health insurance for our employees. Messick's is a family-based work environment created through social gatherings like our annual Christmas parties, company picnics, employee outings, and social opportunities.
