Why Work at Palmer-Donavin?

An Employee Perspective

“I have been here for almost two years. I have had two promotions and a ton of opportunity for growth. I came into this job not knowing anything about the industry, but learned quickly that product knowledge comes with time. However, Palmer-Donavin is looking for people who are willing to work hard and have great customer service. The management notices who puts in the work and says yes to every opportunity. This has been a great job that is turning into a lifelong career.”

“PD is a family-oriented company where everyone treats each other equally. The CEO and managers are very personable. Your word means something and you have the ability to truly make a difference. Being employee-owned means we receive employee stock and bonuses. If you have talent they will recognize it and move you forward.”

“Great benefits, ESOP, 401k. It is a fast paced environment where management cares about your personal development. Great opportunity to grow your career. Great culture that feels like family.”

“Being employee-owned is such a unique benefit and really creates a collaborative culture. Each person has a vested interest in the company and the success we create directly impacts our bonuses and the value of our stocks. I can speak openly with my senior leadership. Titles do not cause people to treat you differently. PD fosters open communication and management takes a genuine interest in your success.”

“In my years at Palmer-Donavin, I’ve learned that this place is more than a company, it’s a family. The people here care about each other and the company treats everyone like they matter. Employees aren’t just numbers here. I’ve learned that if I work hard and show I’m committed to this company and its success, that they’ll give me opportunities to grow and support me along the way. It is a privilege to work here, and I’m honored and thankful that I get to be a part of this great company.”

“Palmer-Donavin has a second-to-none company culture. As an employee-owned business, each employee is dedicated to the success of the company. Across the board, management in every department is committed to developing their employees. At Palmer-Donavin, you will have the opportunity to grow and develop your professional skills, while enjoying a laid back family-oriented company culture. If you are looking to advance, the opportunity is there.”
