  • Why you like working for 1st Source, and what you think makes us different from our competitors.  

    • I love the fact that we provide exceptional, personalized service to our customers while also offering a vast array of products, an award-winning website and highly-competitive pricing.  We truly do act as trusted advisors to our customers and work exceptionally hard to earn their business and demonstrate the value we bring to the table every day.  We operate in a fiercely competitive industry, dominated in large part by multi-billion dollar big box stores, and our goal is to separate 1st Source from the rest of the herd.  I truly believe that our people are the best in the business, and we give our clients the opportunity to find all the products they need, at great prices, while still getting highly responsive service from people who care
