Job Description:

Hajoca Corporation-Developing Entrepreneurs-since 1858

Does the thought of joining a company where there's a team of people working together for not only the customers, but for each other appeal to you?

Then consider this:
Eastern Penn Supply Co, a Division of Hajoca, offers the security of a nationwide corporation with all of the benefits you may expect, coupled with the team mentality of a small business. With over 400 locations across the country, we are a powerhouse in the sales and distribution industry!

We are the nation's largest privately-held wholesale distributor of plumbing and heating equipment, along with many other segments of the industry related to residential, commercial and industrial applications. Established in Philadelphia in 1858, we have continued to grow and prosper because our fundamental business philosophy works: An unwavering emphasis on entrepreneurial spirit, expert knowledge, strong incentives for our people and a true devotion to our proven business principles of "Service, Integrity, Reliability."

High-potential candidates with a bachelor's degree and/or 5 years previous management experience learn every aspect of the distribution of plumbing, heating, and industrial supplies through a rigorous hands-on program. For this reason, our training offers an excellent fast-track option for applicants interested in transitioning from their current management role (manager, assistant manager, operations manager, sales manager, etc.) to a role as the Manager of a Hajoca location (called a Profit Center).

Please Note: Your training of approximately 6 to 18 months may take place at multiple locations in Northeastern Pennsylvania, including Allentown, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, Stroudsburg, and/or Lansdale.

Our training includes learning about our corporate culture, codes of conduct, and business model. In Hajoca's decentralized culture, the critical decisions about how to run the business are made by the employees in the Profit Center who understand the unique needs of their local market.

Those who excel in our empowered environment are self-motivated, entrepreneurial, enthusiastic, energetic, and comfortable assuming the same high degree of autonomy and responsibility as a business owner. Profits are shared with employees, so individuals who understand how their actions generate results have the opportunity to enjoy significant financial rewards.

During the training, prospective managers are given guidance from their mentors and region 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, and annual workshops with other trainees, managers, and vendors.

After the initial training period, the prospective manager will be promoted to a management position.

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

  • A competitive starting salary

  • Annual profit sharing bonus

  • A comprehensive benefits program that includes medical, dental, and vision insurance with prescription coverage, 401(k) and retirement cash account plans, life insurance, long-term disability, pre-tax flexible spending accounts, an employee assistance program,

  • Paid vacation, sick, and holiday time

  • Relocation expenses covered

    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.

    All interested applicants must possess:

  • College degree or equivalent industry experience

  • A demonstrated history of leadership experience

  • Minimum 5 years of wholesale distribution experience

  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build and maintain quality relationships with employees, customers, and vendors

  • Ability to interpret financial data to determine the success/failure of plans and take the appropriate action to adjust business plans to ensure success

  • Microsoft Office (Outlook, Word, Excel) skills
