Looking for a stable, growing company recognized for its great people and high engagement work environment? York Wallcoverings is America's oldest and largest producer of wallcoverings and peel & stick wall decals, sold domestically as well as in over 80 different countries. We are a survivor in an industry which used to support hundreds of manufacturers like us, and has consolidated to only a handful of current suppliers. We have been around for 120 years, and intend to stay around for another 120 years.

We're a design-to-manufacture company, selling beautiful products created by our own talented and creative people. We operate out of two locations, just several miles apart, in west York, Pennsylvania.

We offer:

  • Stable employment. No company can promise no lay-offs, but we haven't had one since coming out of the recession in 2010.
  • Great benefits. As companies pass more and more of the ever rising cost of benefits on to the employees, we work aggressively to keep health care costs controlled and affordable. We have a special, lower premium cost for employees participating in certain wellness initiatives.
  • Challenging, craftsman-based jobs that give you a chance to grow and demonstrate your abilities.
  • A great work environment, where people work well together and treat each other with respect and care.
  • A place where rewards are based on what you contribute, and get opportunities based on your own hustle and initiative.

We employ a wide range of occupations, including production roles, design jobs, and support occupations:

  • Press helpers/printers
  • Warehouse associates
  • Finishing associates
  • Maintenance skilled-tradesmen
  • Graphic designers
  • Stylists
  • Assistant stylists
  • Customer service personnel
