Career Opportunities at JLM

JLM Industrial Supply has been a Nevada-based specialty wholesale industrial distributor since 1973. We are Nevada’s industry leader in the product fields of abrasives, cutting tools, metalworking fluids, precision measurement, machinery and accessories. Our customers are machine shops, fabrication companies and manufacturers.

We are seeking career-minded, self-motivated, personal service-oriented individuals to fill our growing needs. We are looking for the right individuals that demonstrate a desire to be their personal best. We seek individuals that are interested in eventually assuming multi-faceted responsibilities of management and leadership. Because we are a small company, you are not just another employee to us. We will value your abilities and dedication and reward you accordingly.

We offer competitive compensation and benefits, and a friendly work environment. Though we are a small company, we are as progressive and technologically advanced as the largest of national companies. We have been on Prophet 21 since 1990. We use EDI and TPCX for order and purchasing communications. We have earned numerous Integrated Supply and/or Vendor Managed Inventory Agreements with Fortune 100 and smaller customers, as well. Our customers honor us with their business because of our personal, technical, and competent support.

We are a small company of 11 employees, located in a pristine area of the country that enjoys four distinct annual seasons. We are surrounded by beautiful mountains, Lake Tahoe, and other lakes and rivers, and the high desert offering unlimited recreational opportunities. We boast clean air and the second highest number (328) days of sunshine per year. We are a hub of the west, located only three hours from San Francisco. We are a rapidly growing technology area and we have been spotlighted in many publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Newsweek for our positive business climate. We still offer affordable housing and low taxes. In fact, we have no state income tax.

Typical Positions

Inside Sales providing ongoing customers support that includes order entry, purchasing, expediting, recommendations and sourcing of products, and other customer support functions. One who has experience in this field of industrial distribution will readily understand the business we are in. Those possessing a degree(s) from any university degree program in industrial distribution will be given preference. Those possessing experience in similar industries will also be considered. We represent a diverse and sometimes complex array of products that presents a challenge to those that are only experienced in “catalog sales.” It is that complex nature of our company that creates an intrinsic value to our customers.

Outside Sales personnel provide continuous on-site customer support in the local area. Little to no travel is involved. Our sales personnel are not “order takers,” but skilled individuals possessing experience in the product selection and technical application of the products we represent. We pride ourselves on the abilities we can provide to our customers, that our large “big book” competitors do not. Our outside sales personnel work hand-in-hand with our inside sales personnel to supply our customers’ need.
