SRS Distribution – Why Work For Us?


SRS distinguishes itself from our competition by the people we hire and the service we provide to our customers. Safety is our number one priority in everything we do. Our goal is to align with our customers so they can grow their business with us by their side. We are rooted in entrepreneurial spirit, just like our customers, so we know how important each and every sale is to them, as it is to us.

The goal of SRS is to form the strongest national network of independent roofing distributors with the most talented team of people working together to deliver the industry's best products and services. In addition to our commitment to customer focus, SRS strives to become the preferred employer in the industry with highly motivated and engaged employees operating in an entrepreneurial culture where the corporate office works for the field and not the reverse.

Headquartered in McKinney, TX, SRS is a roofing distribution holding company that includes over 210 locations in 42 states operating under the names: Suncoast Roofers Supply, Southern Shingles, Midwest Roofing Supply, River City Wholesale, Superior Distribution, Shake & Shingle Supply, RoofLine Supply & Delivery, Stoneway Roofing Supply, Heritage Wholesalers, Myles F. Kelly, Commercial Distribution Specialists, B&L Wholesale Supply, Advanced Building Products, Atlantic Roofing Distributors, Monroe Aluminum Products, National Building and Roofing Supplies, Metro Roofing Supplies, Kohl Building Products, SG Wholesale Roofing Supplies, National Building Supply, Willoughby Supply, and American Roofing Supply. SRS is a portfolio company of Berkshire Partners LLC.


SRS Distribution Inc. (SRS) started in February of 2008 and quickly secured coast-to-coast operations in the United States. Originally a portfolio company of AEA Investors LP, SRS was initially formed to acquire the assets of Suncoast Roofers Supply and the story is uphill from there. Now SRS is a portfolio company of Berkshire Partners and together we have become the 3rd largest roofing distributor in the country. SRS has experienced incredible growth through acquisitions and openings of new locations year-after-year and we don't intend to slow down any time soon.


                                                                                                                 

We hire people in all 42 states as CDL Drivers, Inside Sales people, Rooftop Loaders, Warehouse personnel, Outside Sales people (Territory Managers), Assistant Branch Managers, and Branch Managers. Some locations have Dispatchers, Operations Managers, Administrative Assistants, Window Experts, and more. Our goal is to hire from within first. We have District Managers and Warehouse Managers who were once Drivers and ready for a change. We mostly sell roofing products in the residential and commercial markets, but we have locations selling doors, windows, siding, gutters, decking and more. So there are opportunities to learn our distribution business and multiple product lines.

Our corporate office is in McKinney, TX. We know we are here to support our branches.  Our departments are what you would expect.

    Manager-In-Training (MIT) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McKinney, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SRS Distribution (McKinney, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Met at a career fair in college. Recruiter sent an email the next week saying they wanted a phone interview. Did the phone interview, then had an on campus interview about two weeks later with a branch manager and territory manager. Then, they flew me up to DFW where I interviewed with the VP of Operations, CHRO, and CEO. All of it was very relaxed, questions where asking where you grew up, what you like to do, what you did in college. They're trying to see if it's easy to hold a conversation with you. Easy stuff. And for a multimillion dollar company to have their CEO doing interviews for two days, they take this stuff pretty seriously. Final interview was Friday, received an offer letter the next Monday, which was not normal for everyone that did the final interview, but to each his own

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You either accept or not. I didn't negotiate, pretty decent deal compared to what a lot of people were offered.
