Company Information:
CED is one of the nation’s largest electrical supply distribution networks, with nearly 600 locations. We distribute just about every piece of equipment that keeps your lights on, your energy flowing and your lifestyle comfortable. Our products – and opportunity – are all around you.



Manager Training program: We’re still growing. And we need talented young leaders to help shape our future. CED’s competitive management training program teaches top candidates every skill for every job in every facet of our fast-paced, profitable industry. Get paid to earn a real-world M.B.A. as you choose your 2-2 1/2-year path to managing your own CED location. Our opportunity is your current — you decide where to steer it.


Phase 1: Warehouse & Counter Training (Duration: 5 months) Start on the hustling, bustling ground floor as you get to know the CED team and our products. You’ll learn how to safely operate equipment, how to ship and receive, process paperwork, handle back orders and how to organize a warehouse. Seminars and home study begin here, and continue throughout the program. Warehouse training generally lasts six weeks. However, your skills, experience, capacity and progress determine the duration of each training phase. Counter Sales Spend time with the products and our customers as you develop your sales knowledge and skills.


Phase 2: Operations Training (Duration: 1 – 2 months) Learn what happens behind the scenes to allow CED products to touch every home, business and development property in the country. You’ll learn the ins and outs of our credit office, service center and administration in phase 2.


Phase 3: Customer Service Training (Duration: 8 months) Inside Sales Relationships are critical to this business, so we’ll arm you with techniques to master phone sales and joint calls with outside salespeople. We’ll teach you how to interpret blueprints, understand job project management and to bid and quote jobs. Purchasing You’ll learn how purchasing decisions are made and executed, as well as controlling inventory write downs and supplier returns.


Phase 4: Outside Sales Training (Duration: 12 months) You’re nearly dangerous. In the final phase of CED’s training program, you’ll be in the field, incorporating everything you’ve learned to build contacts and make sales. By the time you graduate from the program, you’ll understand how to capitalize on the skills and resources you’ve developed.
