About the Position

McMaster-Carr recruits top talent from diverse backgrounds to create a dynamic and accomplished management team. People of all types have been successful at McMaster-Carr; from archaeologists to engineers, business students to thespians, we're interested in your ability to think and your drive to be challenged. 

New members of management find mentorship opportunities and hands-on operational experience in a challenging environment. You will chart your own path at your own speed, so we like to think of your development in phases. 

Learning (2-3 months): Our management team knows our operations inside and out, so you'll start by learning about finance, marketing, product distribution, and customer relations. Every experience is different: write your own syllabus and let curiosity be your guide.

Innovating (4-6 months): We get things right 98 percent of the time, so it's up to you to find the 2 percent that we can improve. In this phase, you will serve as an internal consultant. You will become an expert on a business issue, provide high-quality analysis, and communicate your recommendations. You'll also own the implementation and the results. 

Managing: With demonstrated achievement, you will step into a leadership position within one of our departments. From this point on, you will divide your time between managing people and operations, while seeking opportunities for continuous process improvement. Each day, you will be challenged to develop your team, run a successful operation, and collaborate with your colleagues, while finding and solving problems on your own.
