    Pros

    Benefits are top notch for a privately-held company! Also, there is plenty of potential for career advancement; almost all middle-management positions are currently held by 50-65+ year olds - which means a new generation of managers will be needed.

    Profit center manager's have almost full and complete autonomy to make decisions on every aspect of the business, and are encouraged to run it like their very own small-business. Their personality and managerial style dictate the tempo, morale, and success of their location.

    Hajoca's many locations (355 in the US) makes relocating easy.

    At the end of the day, you're selling plumbing supplies. Nothing excoriatingly complicated about it.

    HARD WORK IS REWARDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    HARD WORK IS EXPECTED!!!!!!!!!!!!! No way around it, the management development program expects hard work out of all of its trainees. Understand that if you are selected for the program, you will come in and immediately be promoted over employees with decades of experience. Show respect, suck it up and get to work.

    With management given such a high level of autonomy, your overall experience will be dependent upon your relationship with your manager. Good managers understand this...bad ones do too, the bad ones just don't do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Practice your people skills

    Pros

    The company rally comes down to who you work for. I met a lot of quality individuals while working with Hajoca. They have a great corporate vision and many of the supervisors have bought into that corporate vision.

    Cons

    Failure to recognize employees that do not believe in the corporate vision are hindering the overall success of the organization. You are told by upper management that they have an open door philosophy and immediate supervisors strongly discourage use of those opportunities. Immediate supervisors undermine well thought out and documented decisions in order to achieve personal gain from manufacturers which goes against corporate philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to say it mean it. I have had 15 supervisors during my career. Three of which have been absolutely awful. One of which works for your company.

    Pros

    Excellent working environment; competative benefits package; profit sharing bonus for entire company; vacation and sick time granted is generous and they encourage you to use it.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth; they don't give raises, just promise more of a bonus; leadership tends to only show up when there is a problem and never to say "good job"; running lean often means a lot of unpaid overtime for salaried folks.

    Pros

    Uncapped profit sharing.
    Profit Center Managers truly run their business as though it's their own
    Benefits are slightly better than industry standards

    Cons

    Incredibly hard to get promoted above the PCM title
    Company does not provide opportunities for employees to relocate- once you accept a job- expect to stay there for life!

    Pros

    Everyone here makes a difference and they get to share in that by being eligible for a portion of the profits. Lots of opportuity to grow with the company if you work smart, like people and are focused. Most of all I love the career opportunity and the great people I work with. I have been promoted a number of times and been given many challenging opportunities. There is a strong benefit package. I'd recommend this company to family and friends.

    Cons

    The company is very decentralized so if you are in management you have significant responsiblity. So if you don't want to be in charge and make the decsions and take some risks you probably won't be happy here.
