Please note that successful candidates to this position may be required to relocate within Canada to complete their training. Relocation assistance will be provided. We have opportunities available across the country!

The Role:

As a Management Trainee, you will progress through a 5 phased program to learn every aspect of how our business operates – from shipping and receiving, counter sales, operations management to employee development and more. You will get to know our customers by growing a sales territory of your own and providing world class customer service.  You will receive guidance, mentoring, and support from current managers and teammates within a region and across Canada to build a successful management career at EMCO.


Program Outline:

Phase 1: Warehouse and Customer service – Build your product knowledge and gain hands on experience with the logistical side of the business and learn how our products get from the vendor to the customer. You will also get involved in our customer service, counter sales, order management, inventory and pricing controls, credit management, financial statements, and more.

Phase 2: Customer relationships and Procurement – Go from helping customers with various customer service issues to managing large-scale projects and problem solving. While building relationships with customers and vendors, and providing world class service, learn how to read blueprint drawings to create a quote of materials the customer will require to complete their project.

Phase 3: Account Management and Proactive Sales – With a focus on business development, you will learn how to find new business opportunities, how to sell our products, negotiate contracts resulting in expanding the customer base of the business, and creating level 5 customer partnerships.

Phase 4: Leadership and Operations – It is now your turn to provide a strategic vision, lead a team of your own, mentor others, and run the business by focusing on developing leadership competencies, supporting the team through coaching and mentoring, and setting vision and strategy.

Once you have completed the phases of training, you will be ready to take on the challenge of being a manager at one of our Canadian Profit Center locations.
