The Sales & Marketing Development Program (SMDP) offers a structured start to your personal career path. Over the course of your tenure in SMDP, you will experience two to three roles and be supported with a comprehensive training program. These experiences will develop your skills in sales and marketing through a variety of roles. SMDP immerses you in the world of our end-users, customers, and business partners at multi-billion-dollar retailers and commercial job sites.

Following the first role, you’ll have the opportunity to advance your career into other sales and marketing positions within our retail, commercial and industrial divisions. We encourage you to pursue several of these roles to build a solid foundation for a long-lasting career. Many successful leaders in retail sales, commercial and industrial sales, brand marketing, product development and channel marketing started their careers in the Sales & Marketing Development Program.
While in SMDP, your development and growth will be supported through a well-rounded training curriculum; focused on the job, online and instructor lead classes. These trainings provide the knowledge and understanding of our products and industry. Throughout the program you will have the opportunity to relocate 2-3 times to major metropolitan cities across the United States and grow your professional network.
We’re looking for a motivated, self-starter, energized working independently and in a team-based environment. We’re seeking someone with effective selling skills, a resourceful problem solver with excellent interpersonal skills and desire to work with a wide variety of people from the retail consumers to Stanley Black & Decker leadership.
