What we offer

What is special about working for us?

e77449adab95408d4e21.jpg

True Value believes that building empowering relationships with our customers, retailers and associates is the foundation of our success. Headquartered in Chicago, our company is one of the world’s largest, member-owned cooperatives. We support a spirit of entrepreneurial thinking, appreciate a passion for excellence and foster a workplace that promotes teamwork and shared knowledge all without losing sight of individuality.

How would we describe the company culture?

At True Value, we are passionate about the independent hardware store – the people who own and operate them – and the communities they serve.

When you shop at True Value, you’re shopping local. As local, independent retailers, we don’t operate in a one-size-fits-all marketplace.

The freedom to choose the products and programs that are right for our retailers and customers is built into every aspect of our business. It’s what sets us apart and gives our retailers a significant competitive advantage.

At True Value, we’ll never stop assessing our role and developing innovative new ways to support our retailers’ independence, growth and profitability.

We’re passionate. Focused. Driven to make a difference.
