"My goal after graduation was to focus on three important facets: growth, adventure, and clarity. SUSA development program provided the ideal platform to explore and excel in all three. The rotational structure of the program provided clarity on what I wanted to do and the areas I wanted to grow in. Through the residency trips, I got to travel around the country, connect with executives, and develop great relationships with associates."
SALES & OPERATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM "The sales aspect of the development program is very well rounded and really gives you all of the resources you can use to be as successful as possible in electrical distribution. Customers at various branches are genuinely excited when I return to the branch I first met them at and are even happier to see how much I have developed since meeting them at the counter."
SALES & OPERATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM "The Sonepar USA Sales and Operations Development Program curriculum does a tremendous job combining meaningful work assignments with relevant training across all areas of the business. This allows you to not only build a solid professional foundation, but also deliver to your customers more efficiently."
