Since 1858, Hajoca has been blending the strengths and clout of a large company with freedom and opportunity for employees. The company will continue to grow and prosper because our fundamental business philosophy works: emphasis on entrepreneurial spirit, expert knowledge, strong incentives for our employees, and devotion to Hajoca’s proven business principles of “Service, Integrity, Reliability."

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:

Hajoca Corporation 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!

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 lasting from six months to one year. 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).

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 in Safford, AZ. 

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

All interested applicants must possess:

  • College degree or equivalent industry experience
  • A demonstrated history of leadership experience
