Developmental District Sales Manager Program

A career with room to grow, in a company with room to roam.

Our Developmental District Sales Manager (DDSM) Program is a comprehensive training program that will immerse you in every aspect of the metal buildings industry. It’s designed to give future District Sales Managers (DSMs) the knowledge and skills they would need to excel in the field.

The DDSM Training

Operational Rotations

Following a product order from start to finish will help you get to know your teammates within the division while learning what it takes to fabricate and deliver a project to our customers.


Multi-day workshops at a variety of Nucor locations will focus on a skill or knowledge critical to DSM function.

Assessment & Feedback

You’ll receive continual feedback from teammates, supervisors, experienced DSMs, and Sales Managers on your progress in the program.

Shadowing and Internships

You may be given hands-on territory management experience through shadowing and internship opportunities where experienced DSMs will mentor you.

Program Completion

Upon completion of the DDSM Program, you will have earned your chance to win an available territory and represent Nucor as a DSM.

Relocation to an awarded territory is a requirement, but we’ll ensure you’re fully prepared when it’s time to make the move.
