Employee voices at SRS Distribution

Make money and have fun with us!

Our employees have this to say about their experience:

"The internship program is structured with a checklist, but it is up to the intern for how fast they move through the checklist. This checklist keeps interns on track, makes sure they are getting something out of the internship, and the freedom to complete it at a good pace. Gives them a great look at how to manage their own operation one day." – Brady Blackwell, Management Trainee Program-Fort Worth, TX 2018 (Summer Intern 2017)

"An unprecedented introduction to an industry with high opportunity." – Christopher House, Management Trainee Program-Baton Rouge, LA 2018 (Summer Intern 2017)

"SRS invests greatly in our development. We are an active participant in each integral role in the branch. My opinion is valued and I can apply my knowledge to improve processes to benefit our branch." – Stephen Mauzy, Management Trainee Program-Charleston 2018 (Inside Sales and Warehouse employee while finishing senior year, and Summer Intern 2017)

"Gaining the requisite understanding across every business discipline could have taken up to 3-5 years but due to the focused effort of the MBA Leadership Development Program, the capability to evaluate and drive value-added change was achieved in less than a year. Working directly with the highest-level executives at a company of this scale is truly unique and showcases how the entrepreneurial spirit that drives SRS is perfectly defined by this position. There are truly no limits to the personal and professional growth available through this exclusive opportunity." – Jeremy Goldschmeding, Area Vice President-Florida (Assistant Director-Southeast Region, FP&A Director, FP&A Manager and MBA Leadership Development Program in 2015)

"The Manager in Training program is a fast-paced/realistic way to transform hard-working individuals into effective leaders simply by letting the individual experience EVERY aspect of the business from many different angles." – Will Carson, Branch Manager-Tucson, AZ (Management Trainee Program, 2014)

"From day one, I felt welcomed by each employee and found myself serving an important role. A company whose motto is 'Make Money and Have Fun!' is a perfect explanation of who we are. Every person, from my branch to the corporate office, has such a passion to grow and expand this business and enjoy every second of it. The outstanding corporate structure, the work environment, the professionalism, the assertiveness in the market, the teamwork, and the fun, are all reasons why my experience this summer was exceptional. I look forward to my future with SRS." – Brinson Straub, Territory Manager-Montgomery, AL (Management Trainee, 2017 and Summer Intern, 2016)

"The Management Trainee Program exposes you to every aspect of the job that a Manager may encounter, and through those hands-on experiences you have the opportunity of becoming an Assistant Manager or Branch Manager early-on in your career. I applied myself and proved that I was ready to take on the next step to accelerate my career." – Pete Bachman, Director of Operations Innovation-McKinney, TX (District Manager, Branch Manager and Management Trainee, 2014)

"Learning the operations side of the business as an MIT, gave me insight on what it takes for the branch to run on a daily basis. Having that background made the transition to sales easier as I know what it takes for our inside sales operation to complete deliveries and take care of our customers." – Sheldon Jones, Territory Manager (Management Trainee Program, 2013)

"Within a year of starting the MIT program I was managing my own branch and loving it. With hard work, dedication and a little mobility, the advancement possibilities are endless." – Justin Harrod, held Branch and District Manager positions (Management Trainee Program, 2014)

"Being an Intern for SRS Distribution has been an invaluable experience. It was a pleasure to have been part of such a successful and growing company. They leveraged every moment and opportunity to expose me to all aspects of the business. Over the course of the internship, I developed great relationships that I know will always be part of my network. One of my takeaways is that each and every part of the business is critical to the success of the company. SRS is an incredible company to work for, with great people who take pride in what they do, and great processes that focus on customer service." – Brandon Loftus, Management Trainee-Denver, CO, 2017 (Summer Intern, 2016)

"A few of the main reasons as to why I joined SRS included training, employee advancement and learning about a new industry. All while having fun." – Gabriela Martinez, Branch Manager (Assistant Branch Manager, Management Trainee Program, 2015)

"Our success rate is nearly 100% and the potential is limitless. Take it from someone who started as a Management Trainee just 20 short years ago. It prepared me for Branch Management in my first year and many of the lessons I learned in those years still shape the vision and operating philosophy that I use as the CEO of the company today." – Dan Tinker, President & CEO (Held many positions and started in the Management Trainee Program, 1996)
