Land a New Opportunity

A day in the life of a SMDP associate.

As part of the Sales & Marketing Development Program, you’ll be part of a 100-member team (and hundreds of alumni) that stretches across our Global Tools & Storage organization. You’ll engage with your team through events, training and community outreach, building a professional and personal network.


Our Sales and Marketing Development Program (SMDP) offers a unique and robust start to your career. You’ll begin as a Stanley Black & Decker Sales Representative supporting one of our largest retail customers. You’ll develop your selling skills, gain product knowledge, build relationships and implement corporate marketing strategies.

You’ll grow professionally and personally through an extensive training program which includes on-the-job training, instructor-led training and e-learning through our online University. SMDP is a nationwide program providing the opportunity to relocate within the United States.


This is not a traditional rotational program. We realize you have a unique career path based on your personal interests, skills and abilities. After your sales representative role, you can rotate into a variety of opportunities in sales, early-career management, ecommerce and marketing. We encourage program participants to tackle roles within all functions, rounding out your experiences and developing you as a leader within our organization.



You’re a self-motivated and solutions-oriented individual that is hungry to learn and develop your skills. You’re adaptable and thrive on change. You’re an effective communicator with a high level of integrity and accountability.


The people of the SMDP are energetic and succeed in a fast-paced environment. They are open-minded to opportunity. They are inclusive and collaborative but are also comfortable working independently.

Above all, they are career oriented and share a passion for developing a savvy marketing mindset, building strong business relationships and providing top-notch products and service For Those Who Make The World™.



Causes that matter to you also matter to us. SMDP GivesBack is a nationwide volunteer initiative focused on giving back to the community and creating a more sustainable world. Whether working up a sweat on habitat builds, lending a hand at local food banks, maintaining public parks or helping to rehab a shelter for those most in need, SMDP members clearly care about the communities in which they live and work. And we support their efforts.
