Hajoca Corporation is a wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating and industrial supplies. In fact, we’re the largest privately held wholesale distributor of these supplies in the country.
We have hundreds of locations in the United States. We’re a large company with a rich history and strong foundation that offers stability to its employees. We enjoy big-company advantages, such as modern technology systems and a comprehensive benefits package. But when you visit our individual locations, you get more of a small company feel. Our employee teams operate like a family unit. We conduct business under unique trade names and our approach is customized, honoring what’s special about each local marketplace.
Our culture is decentralized. We believe the important decisions should be made by the experts – the employees who serve a community – not executives in a distant corporate headquarters. The people who love working at Hajoca are comfortable with autonomy and accountability, skilled at smart decision-making and relish hard work. Because you run the business like it’s yours, you get paid like it’s yours. A significant portion of each location’s annual profits are distributed among its employees and based on individual contributions. It’s a culture well-suited for exceptional people who use their talents to drive business success.
Is a Hajoca a type of historic plumbing fixture? It's a great guess, especially considering we've been around since 1858. But that's not it.
Is Hajoca named after the town where it was established? That's not it either. Hajoca was founded in Philadelphia, PA and we are still headquartered right outside of the city today.
Was there a Mr. Hajoca? Well not quite, but you're onto something now!
Our name is derived from the last names of three visionaries who saw a demand for indoor plumbing (a relatively new concept in the 19th century) and vowed to make it easily available:
William H. HAines, Thomas J. JOnes and Joel CAdbury: HAJOCA for short
Today, we are the nation's largest privately held wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating and industrial supplies.
We're a diverse family with a unique blend of cultures, histories and traditions…and we're proud of it! It's our passion that connects us, and sets us apart. We go the extra mile, every time, to deliver unparalleled service, unwavering integrity and unfailing reliability. We proudly operate under these names:

I have been working at Hajoca Corporation full-time (More than a year)
Great place to start out in and just overall fun and as a person I've gained much for here. Great people
I personal think that the only con is the requirement of a bachelors degree for the position. There's people out there who can do this work but can't afford the schooling.
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation (Flagstaff, AZ) in March 2017.
Very extensive and challenging interview process. However, it poses a fun, and potentially rewarding challenge. The recruiters are spectacular at communication and will keep checking in with you throughout the process to see how you're feeling and answer any questions you have.
