Consider our internship opportunity!
The South Division of Hajoca has a 12-week paid rotational internship opportunity in a fast-paced environment. Interns will receive hands-on experience in every aspect of wholesale distribution and be coached by experienced mentors. The internship is spent in a profit center, learning the logistics and operations side of the business.
- Warehouse and Counter (3 weeks): You’ll gain a great foundation of the team and business in this phase. Time will be spent understanding, performing, and mastering the logistics of getting materials in and out of the business. In addition, you’ll work on the counter interacting with customers and learning product, spend time out in the field learning how products are applied, and visit other locations to see how they operate.
- Sales (5 weeks): Through riding alongside and outside sales teammate, spending time in our Showroom, and understanding on the job training with a local contractor, you’ll learn how we interact with our existing customers, provide solutions to their problems and develop relationships.
- Special Project (4 weeks): This part of our program is to further test and hone your operational, sales, and service skills. While still under the supervision and instruction of your mentor, this project challenges you to think critically and solve real life problems faced everyday by industry professionals. The project will be assigned by the profit center manager and be applicable to the location and needs of the team.
