As a Trainee, you’ll complete an intensive, hands-on, 18-month (Professional Sales) or 24-month (Branch Management) program that consists of up to seven distinct phases: Warehouse, Counter Sales, Inside Sales, Project Management, Outside Sales, Back Office and Branch Operations. During the first 12 months, the programs have a shared curriculum on a variety of prerequisite subjects. At the 12-month mark, you’ll work with your manager to determine your preferred course of study and then specialize in preparing for either a sales or management career.
During the “hands-on” training, you’ll be responsible for an additional required 39- 47 hours of on-line training. Topics covered include electrical distributor operations, electricity, electrical products, customer service, communications, ethics, finance, leadership and personal development. You’ll also receive training on our ERP system and on-site manufacturing factory training.
Throughout the training program, and even after a sales territory or branch management position is assigned, you’ll be mentored by one or more of our industry professionals. These experienced employees are a great source of support, industry knowledge and business insights.
During training your mentor will work with you to establish training tasks and goals. These will be designed to help you master new skills and knowledge and we’ll track your achievements throughout the program.
