Sales Representative: Train Hard, Earn a Career

Colonial Electric values drive over experience, and that mindset has contributed greatly to our success. A successful sales rep will need to be confident and flexible, and able to adapt to the exciting twists and turns that come with the territory. The number one goal is to close business, and doing that translates to success!

Is Sales Right for You?

Successful sales representatives work hard and dedicate the time and effort needed to fast-track their careers and grow their professional networks. If you are a hard worker, with a hunger for knowledge and the drive to succeed, then Colonial Electric could be a great place for you to continue your sales journey!

Who is Colonial Electric?

Our Team - Our 500 strong team is the fastest and smartest in the lighting and electrical supply business, with the most contracts because we love to win! If you’ve read this far, we’re betting you like to win, too.

A Delightfully Simple Work Culture - You’ll enjoy Colonial Electric because our workspaces and people form a family culture—very different from the corporate world. We are always looking to promote from within and due to our dedicated training team, many have been promoted within the first year!

Work-Life Balance: We are privately-owned and led by men and women of strong character. That means we value the health and happiness of the people who work with us. We’ve done a decent job with work-life balance for 90 years. Back in 1925, we called it “respect.” Everyone who joins Colonial Electric is a respected member of our team.
