The PDP program has given me comfortability settling into my role with the company. With the excellent training program that was provided prior to starting, I gained all the necessary tools to be able to confidently accomplish goals and objectives. With any job there will always be uncertainty, but this program helped to feel prepared in my market and work to my best potential.

What I would tell anyone applying for the PDP program is “GO FOR IT!” You miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take. This is NOT an opportunity that you want to let pass you by. It will truly change your life forever.

If I had to pick one thing that has really stood out about this program it has to be the relationships I have developed with the other hires in my class of “PDPers.” By the end of two weeks, you’re ready to go home there’s no doubt about that, but the relationships that are developed over those short two weeks are something that I will have over the course of the rest of my career. I will never forget my first national sales meeting in October a couple months after first being hired and getting my feet wet in the market and coming back to share stories with the friends I had made just a few weeks prior in Buffalo.
