Summer Internship (Louisiana)
Hajoca Corporation—Developing Entrepreneurs—since 1858
Are you competitive, driven and goal-oriented?
Do you like to interact with people and build relationships?
Have you ever wanted to run your own business?
Consider our internship opportunity!
The South Central 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. You will perform shipping and receiving functions, deliveries, etc. You will then be exposed to the sales side of the business by interacting with customers and vendors through counter sales, inside sales, and outside sales.
During the final 4 weeks you will devote your time to a special project 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.
The South Central Division of Hajoca has aggressive growth goals to increase sales and acquire or open new locations in the coming years. Our decentralized structure demands we employ the very best management and sales teams.
