Craft Your Career

DeCrescente Distributing Company has been voted a Best Place to Work in the Capital District for the past 11 years in a row. Among the reasons our employees have awarded us this designation are competitive pay, an outstanding benefits package, and opportunities for career growth.  DDC provides rich opportunities for training and development including:

  • Sales Trainee Exploration Program (STEP)
  • Management and Supervision Courses
  • Monthly Employee Training
  • Specialized Training by Department
  • Product Knowledge and Cicerone Training/Certification
  • Individualized Career Path Training
  • Routine Employee Check-ins and Annual Talent Management Reviews

Starting out in one of our entry-level positions is a great way to begin a career in the beverage industry and gain the experience needed to grow and advance within the Company.  Merchandisers have the unique opportunity to work with a team of Beer and Soft Drink Sales Representatives on a daily basis- this is the perfect way to begin exploring a career in sales.  Employees who wish to move into sales careers may also apply to participate in STEP (Sales Training Exploration Program).  In STEP, students learn exactly how DDC goes to market and learn about the competencies required to become a successful sales trainee or sales representative.  Employees in Merchandising and Re-set positions often pursue careers in sales, but employees in from our Operations teams have also moved into the ranks of our sales force.

Similarly, employees interested in Operations also have the opportunity to earn their CDL-A through our Driver Trainee Program.  DDC’s Driver Trainee program is a “learn while you earn” program which includes salary increases as candidates earn their permit and then their CDLA license.  Shadowing professional drivers and learning how to effectively merchandise and service customer accounts is a fantastic way to learn!  This program is available to qualified employees, and provides a straightforward path to licensing without the additional high cost of driving school.

These are just some of the many ways DDC can move you ahead on the path to your next career!
