US Electrical Services – Why Work With Us?


USESI IS A WORLD-CLASS DISTRIBUTOR OF ALL THINGS ELECTRICAL

USESI IS A WORLD-CLASS DISTRIBUTOR OF ALL THINGS ELECTRICAL

USESI is proud to be a leading innovator for industry solutions and services.  We boast the latest and greatest advancements in technology to make the buying process seamless while not displacing our commitment to customer satisfaction.  Our dedication to elevating our  e-commerce platform,  business process software, and e-learning modules provides USESI employees with the tools needed to succeed and stay ahead of the competition.

Privately held and American-owned, we’re committed to local decision-making and the entrepreneurial spirit. We’re innovative, growing and changing the world.  As the world evolves and moves toward cleaner, more efficient energy sources, so has USESI.  We welcome you to consider joining the green movement by contacting our Renewable Solutions Division!

Be it residential, or commercial, industrial or utility, the world runs on products and services from our best-in-class electrical distribution businesses.

Our name may be new to you, but our products are part of your life each and every day. 

USESI COULD BE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOUR CAREER.

You’re smart, hardworking, creative and driven. You hate bureaucracy and you want a chance to show what you can do. And—let’s be honest—you’ve got a lot of companies vying for your attention. 

WE HOPE USESI WILL MAKE YOUR SHORT LIST. REASONS WHY WE THINK WE SHOULD:

Opportunity.

Choose USESI and you’re tapping into a network that’s 11 companies and 85 locations strong. You’ll have the chance to explore a variety of industries and products and try out different roles—either in your home area or, if you’re up for an adventure, in any number of places that will become “home.” At USESI, you’re not a number; you’re a vital part of building our future.

A think-local mentality.

Although each of our companies benefits from being part of a larger organization, day-to-day decision-making and customer service are decided locally. We know that each branch understands its customers and its marketplace better than headquarters ever could and give them the freedom to excel.

Work-life balance.

We believe that an employee with a rich life outside the branch makes for a better employee inside it.

Longevity.

Many of our employees have been with us for at least a decade—and some have spent most, if not all, of their careers with us. Considering that the average man/woman holds 11.4/10.7 jobs in their lifetime (visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics website if you want to learn more), we have a pretty impressive track record of retaining employees. What does that tell you? That work at USESI is varied and interesting. That people feel they have the opportunity to grow and change and that our employees feel their efforts are appreciated and valued. And what does that tell us? That the ongoing success of our organization is a direct result of our committed, invested employees.

Mentors and role models.

We actively work to pair our newer hires with experienced employees who can offer support plus the business insights and industry knowledge that only come with time.

Structured Training Program.

We have developed our USESI.U which is an on-line structured training program that will take you through everything you need to know to learn any position.  USESI.U can be used to enhance skills in your current position or to move up to the next position.  We have every aspect covered from use of our computer, to job skills, to manufacturer product training.

We’re privately held.

We’re in it for the long haul. Our decisions are made with longevity in mind—not quarterly earnings reports.

We’re typically the major player in every market we serve.

Our track record is exceptional. We’re growing, respected and here to stay.
