The Accelerated Management Development Program offers high potential candidates a hands-on mentorship experience and the opportunity to learn our business from the ground up.

No development plan will be exactly the same for any of our trainees. Time spent in each phase may vary depending upon your skills, experience, and needs of the business. One thing that remains consistent is that you will be given every opportunity to meet and exceed your own expectations along the way!

Our goal is not just to develop strong teammates, but future leaders who will serve as Key Business Partners by running one of our businesses and achieving key goals.

Why join the Accelerated Management Development Program?

We offer Industry Expertise

Trainees will work with a team while progressing through three phases of training covering all aspects of operations, counter sales, and inside sales. Profit Center Managers, teammates, and customers will guide you through your world-class training experience, offering a wealth of knowledge in each of these areas.

We offer an Individualized Approach

Hajoca’s decentralized business model allows each location to run independently and each team has its own unique culture and dynamic. Likewise, our training programs are structured but individualized depending on your strengths and abilities, the needs of the business, size of your team, and the dynamics of the local market. For example, in a large Profit Center, teammates’ roles are likely to be more focused and specialized; in a small Profit Center, teammates have their hands in all aspects of the business, working cross-functionally on a daily basis. Throughout the program, there will be regular touchpoints with your mentor regarding your individual progress. As your appetite for learning changes, you will have the opportunity to work with your Manager to ensure that you are challenged daily.
