Careers

If you're not just looking for a job, but a career, we want to talk with you. You can learn and grow here. In fact, most of our managers and vice presidents started in the warehouse or at the sales counter. We'll invest the time and training to help you succeed, whether you're looking to move up from a warehouse position or translate your electrical knowledge to a sales job.  You provide the motivation, we'll provide the opportunity.

Joe Baxter, Director of Branch Sales

“I’m proud to say that I’ve been working at Dominion Electric Supply for over 35 years. It's a pleasure coming to work every day in such a family and friendly atmosphere! The pay and benefits are very good but there’s much more that has kept me here all these years. It’s the culture that starts with the owner and CEO who is down-to-earth, approachable, and very caring about the staff and the customer experience. This culture of excellence permeates through senior- and mid-level management right down to the rest of the company. It’s inspiring to work for a company that constantly wants to do right by its customers and employees. I'm excited to come to work every day!”

Liz Erkenbrack, Director of IT

"My favorite part about working at Dominion is the culture. I’ve worked here for 38 years and have always been able to learn and grow throughout my career. The people really make it an enjoyable place to work. Dominion has always has been my second family."

Lianne Weed, Switchgear Sales and Bid Coordinator

“When people ask me what it’s like to work at Dominion, I tell them first that I LOVE my company and wouldn’t work anywhere else. Coming from an extensive sales background, I can say that Dominion is different from any other company I’ve worked for. Here, you don’t feel like just another face or worker bee. It's not ‘just a job.’ Most people have been here for years and are more like family than coworkers. That speaks highly about the company and how valued employees feel. Most people who come to work here, stay here. After 3 years, I’m still the 'new kid,' but my opinion is just as valued as those who have been here 20+ years. Dominion Electric has provided me a feeling of security, knowing that I don’t just have a job anymore, I have a career. I have a path in life and that feels really good.”
