small office only about 12 people, half related to each other in some way. Manager quit out of the blue over a year ago and everything fell apart. Everyone wanted to be in charge but no one wanted to be accountable. Turn over is pretty high
off on weekends

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 26, 2017
cant seem to get orders correct so deliver wrong thing if I don't pull myself or they don't give us equipment to do the job safe, the profit center is not getting proper sells so they cut hours daily. I need steady to care for my family.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia PA – November 6, 2017
If you are looking to be stressed, look no further! The Hajoca environment leaves little room for teamwork and innovation. The company runs decentralized; small businesses with no support or direction. Managers are not qualified and have no idea what they are doing. If you need support the most you will receive is a PDF with instructions, there is a serious lack of training. If you are looking for growth and development you will not get it here.
PTO & Working Remote
Aggressive and Competitive Work Environment, Unreasonable Managment and Lack of Growth
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – August 25, 2017
If you're a hard working, self-motivated, driven person - this is the best company you could ever ask to work for! Hajoca is a stable company that's been around for 150+ years, in a very stable industry that's not going anywhere. If you want to feel like you're working for your own business (without having to put up any capital), this is the place for you!
Most of the negative reviews I see on this site are from lazy people - there are two sides to every story.
Profit Sharing, Benefits, Great co-workers
Can be stressful, sometimes extra hours are required to complete the job
Driver (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – July 4, 2017
I worked in the Panama City Florida location for 11 months as a truck driver. To begin with the hiring process takes too long. When I was finally hired on I was expected to stock customers shelves and rotate stock. I was also told by the profit center manager not to stop and take a lunch instead grab something and eat while driving. Drivers were expected to run passed legal hour limits regularly and leave with trucks that were over weight. Very poor management.
Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 15, 2017
In Hajoca, the Profit Center Manager is the Hero. Your work satisfaction will be affected directly by him. The center manager where I work is very good. The atmosphere is very professional and you are expected to work and contribute to a well running, lean team. My overall experience is positive.
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Midwest – April 27, 2017
Hajoca is a ruthless company with a cult like culture. I’ve seen so many talented people pushed out because they didn’t drink the Kool aide. After years of working for Hajoca and being highly successful, I decided to make a change and take a larger role with a competitor. Senior management was quick to defame me to customers and vendors alike. From what I hear, this is not uncommon among other regions across the country.
Profit sharing, good benefits, flexible vacation
Hajoca culture is cult like, will do business in the most ruthless ways
Profit Center Manager (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – February 21, 2017
Hajoca is a great place to work. Management takes a very hands off approach and allows each location to operate independently with full financial backing and corporate support.
The best aspects of this job can also be the most difficult. Operating and leading independently can present challenges when risk/reward analysis do not pay off. However, when things work out accordingly, the payoff is very rewarding.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bentonville, AR – August 15, 2016
I worked for this company for 6 years. I was promised promotion time after time and that lead no where. The benefits and insurance is good but expensive. I wouldn't recommend working for this company for long term.
Weak leadership and poor internal systems is prevalent at this company. Poor and rundown location in crime ridden area of Dallas. Lock your car and get good insurance because it's not uncommon for cars to be stolen from the parking lot. Management is nearly non-existent and you'll be struggling as an account manager to compete with organizations that are much more sophisticated that have more purchasing power and sway with vendors.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – January 6, 2016
Great place to work. management really cares about your input and understands your day to day needs. work was never ending which in my case is a good thing. everyone is friendly plenty of events going on. customers are hilarious. overall i really enjoyed working here
Hajoca Corporation acquired Gorman Company in Florida while I was a branch manager of the Tampa profit center. From the beginning I was impressed with the organization and top management support allowing each branch manager the freedom to work with local market conditions and needs to increase the profitability of each branch.
The business model allows each Profit Center manager to "run" the business as their own!
