Management Training Program - Midwest Region (Western PA/OH/MI/IN) (137-425)

Job Description


Hajoca is the largest privately-owned plumbing and heating wholesaler in the United States. Founded in 1858, we have hundreds of unique locations run by unparalleled leaders. The Management Development Program at Hajoca is a fast-track training path for external applicants interested in earning a role as the Manager of a Hajoca location. High-potential candidates with little-to-no industry experience learn every aspect of the distribution of plumbing, heating, and industrial supplies through a rigorous three-year hands-on program.

During the rotational program, trainees are given guidance from their mentors and managers in all aspects of running a business from customer service to pricing products to business operations. Learning occurs primarily through on-the-job experience, and is supplemented with coaching from experienced managers, book and computer courses, business projects, annual meetings with other trainees, managers, and leadership and visits with customers and vendors. After graduation from the training program, a trainee is prepared to be a manager of his/her own location.

We have training sites in the following areas: Lancaster, PA, Pittsburg, PA, Grand Rapids, MI, Cranberry, PA, and Cleveland, OH. The program requires the trainee to work at two sites, so relocation may be necessary during one part of the training.

This career opportunity is full time and the compensation package includes:

  • Annual profit sharing bonus
  • Relocation assistance between phases
  • A comprehensive benefits program that includes medical, dental and vision insurance, retirement, life insurance, and much more
  • Employees at Hajoca enjoy a work/life balance and are offered paid holidays, paid sick and vacation time

  • A Bachelor’s Degree is required to be considered for the program
  • An ability and willingness to work in all areas in the region applied (may require relocation)
  • Demonstrated leadership skills in professional, educational, and/or social experiences
  • Above average intelligence
  • Goal-orientation, a competitive spirit, and a take-charge attitude
  • The ability to perform a wide-range of tasks, with an equal blend of interpersonal and analytical skills
  • Entry-level work experience in people or project supervision, sales, operations, and/or customer service is a plus

Hajoca Corporation is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer (EOE and M/F/D/V.) We are a drug free workplace, with pre-employment drug screening required. Employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background investigation.
