Hajoca Corporation – Why Work With Us?

Who are We?

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.

What's in a Name?

There are many theories about how Hajoca got its name...

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

    Very Competitive Markets, Lack Of Trust between Legacy Teammates and Management Trainees. Some Profit Centers are outdated.

    Sales and Leadership Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation (Wichita, KS) in February 2019.


    Process took over 3 months to complete. I had lunch with the PC manager twice, once with the Warehouse manager and Assistant PC manager. We mostly talked about the state of the industry in our area, was not a traditional interview. I assume they were seeing how well I could hold a conversation. I had to take the Wonderlic IQ test, after the test and I scored well enough I saw that I needed to score a minimum of 27 to get the job. Drug test and background check was required. job required college degree.
