We are seeking energetic, goal-oriented, 4-year college graduates, with an entrepreneurial spirit and an interest in sales to work for us. This is not a 'desk job'.   Our entry level Management Training Program is designed to provide graduates with all the skills necessary for a successful career in management and/or outside professional sales.

As a Manager Trainee, you will take part in valuable learning experiences such as self-study and job certification, as well as structured on-the-job training during which you will work closely with an experienced branch manager to learn all aspects of running one of our business units. In addition, you will receive classroom instruction that includes workshops and hands-on interaction. Some of the things you can expect to learn during your training include:

- Marketing, Sales & Management
- Customer Service
- Credit Management
- Profit and Loss
- Human Resource Management

In addition to those managerial responsibilities you will also be responsible for tinting and mixing paint, unloading freight, and making deliveries from time to time. Once the training phase is complete, trainees are given the opportunity to put their new knowledge and skills to work during their first assignment as an Assistant Branch Manager. You get a competitive base salary with strong bonus potential, full benefits, and 401K.
