Approves of CEO

I have been working at Sonepar USA full-time for more than 3 years


Great leadership, supportive team members, and an executive team that actually cares about their associates! If you work hard, you will be rewarded here. Being part of the Sonepar global network


Some teams are lean and have a lot of responsibility. Sometimes not all employees get the communications they should.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and encouraging your associates! We are a dedicated bunch.
