If you are looking for a large, well-established company that has a culture of promoting from within and a defined career path, then this position may be for you!

Our client, a $4.5B+ distributor with over 900 facilities, is adding to their renowned manager trainee program.

In this structured “earn while you learn” plan, you’ll learn all aspects of the company while being groomed to run your own facility. Train in the warehouse as you learn the product lines, move into sales and marketing (both inside and out in the field), and finally operations, including financials, commercial credit, P&L, and branch staffing.

Earn a competitive base salary of $61,000 plus branch profit sharing while you learn, and enjoy a generous benefit package that includes hospital, medical, dental, and 401K. Promote after training to manage your own branch as if it were your own business. Many managers with this firm earn over six figures annually, and over 70% of the company’s upper management began in this very program.

This position is full-time and highly structured. Our client is looking for the best and brightest to hire, train, and promote.
