Jobs in Janesville, Wisconsin, United States

Janesville, the seat of Wisconsin’s Rock Count, is the state’s park city with miles and mile of parks and farmlands. Situated by the Rock River, Janesville is an exceptional place for boating, fishing, hiking and biking, having a picnic or simply playing golf. Rotary Botanical Garden, one of the largest in the city, is a fascinating sight especially when it is in full bloom. You can also visit the city’s Western Historic District to see some of the most amazingly preserved buildings dating back to 19th century.

The City with Recovering Economy

Janesville was once home to the oldest automotive assembly plant in the country, General Motors’ Janesville Assembly Plant. Similarly, Parker Pen Company was also founded in the city. These two companies not only provided jobs to thousands of people but also helped the related industries grow and prosper. However, the plant closed in 2008 much to the shock and dismay of local people and businessmen. It also left thousands of people jobless and deprived suppliers, many small businesses and shops of work. These businesses also eventually shut down because they didn’t have enough money to continue.

The city has been struggling economically of late. Currently, job market is not performing as well as it was a decade ago. However, there is light at the end of tunnel. Many new companies such as SHINE and Dollar General have chosen Janesville as their manufacturing site. These companies also promise to bring more jobs to the city. The city is still a long way away from regaining its past glory and prosperity.

Despite adverse economic circumstances, many companies from different industries such as healthcare, educational services, manufacturing and food services still operate in the city. Some of the largest employers in the city include Mercy Health System and Janesville School District. Janesville is also home to major companies like Walmart Supercenter, Simmons Bedding Company and Hufcor. The city of Janesville and the Rock County are also among the largest employers.

History and Culture

Janesville is commonly known as the City of Parks. The city has 53 public parks within its 2,000 acres park system further encompassing natural trails, golf courses and boat launches. Rotary Gardens is internationally-themed public Garden famous for its natural beauty and Holiday Light Show. The city has many sites listed on National Registrar of Historic Buildings. Some of these sites include former Janesville Public Library and the Lincoln-Tallman House constructed in 1857.

Another worth visiting place in the city is Armory where culture meets history in an amazing manner. You cannot only dine at their outstanding restaurant but can also enjoy comedy performances and live music. Similarly, the Janesville Performing Art Center also organizes a variety of live performances. Finally, Janesville is the best place in Wisconsin for water skiing as well.
