I need to sum data for each department. This seems simple but my data's columns are not always in the same order. I'm sure there is a way to find the 'department column in an array then find the wages column and sum particular department names.

It just needs to work with dynamic data.

NameDepartmentWages
Smith, JohnAdmin1000
Spalding, SallySales500
Clooney, GeorgeAdmin700Sales800
Revere, PaulSAles300Admin1700

Try:

=SUMIFS(INDEX(A:C,0,MATCH("wages",INDEX(A:C,1,0),0)),INDEX(A:C,0,MATCH("department",INDEX(A:C,1,0),0)),"sales")

The formula I proposed determines itself the wages column (the column range to sum) and the department column (the condition range) automatically.

So if I remove the "department" condition it will total the entire wages column?
