What do the Phases Look Like?

• Excellent Customer Service is Noble. In the second phase of the program you will understand what it means to be a part of the Noble Difference. You will work face-to-face with our customers and get hands-on with our products, building your knowledge of our service offerings.
 
• Put your negotiating skills to the test in the third phase of the program when you join our purchasing team to identify the right product mix for our branches, and work with our vendor partners to source products at the best price.
 
• Building relationships is very important in all we do. In the fourth phase of the program you will join our inside sales team to continue to build relationships with our customers. You will troubleshoot customer issues, assist them with their orders and provide excellent customer service.
 
• After gaining a strong understanding of how our inside sales team operates, you will transition to the fifth phase of the program and take on a role in outside sales. You will once again have the opportunity to work face to face with our customers and spend time on the road visiting customers and job sites.
 
• In the last and final phase of the program, you will shadow an experienced Branch Manager and learn how to build, motivate and lead a team to deliver world-class results. On top of learning how to lead a team, you will master the financial aspect of running a branch and what is required.

What Does it Take?
