Internship Position: 

The Southeast region of Hajoca has a twelve week paid rotational internship opportunity in a fast paced environment. Interns will receive hands-on experience in every aspect of wholesale distribution and be coached by experienced mentors. The internship is spent in a profit center, learning the logistics and operations side of the business. This is done by performing shipping and receiving functions, deliveries, etc. After that the intern will then be exposed to the sales side of the business by interacting with customers and vendors in counter sales, inside sales and outside sales.

During the final four weeks interns will devote some of their time to a special project to further test and hone their operational, sales and service skills. While still under the supervision and instruction of their mentor, this project challenges interns to think critically and solve real life problems faced everyday by industry professionals. The project will be assigned by the profit center manager and be applicable to the location and needs of the team.
