Our Recruiting Process

We welcome your interest in working at MSC. Please read on to learn more about our recruiting process.

Getting Started

Search our jobs to find the right opportunity for you. There is no need to create an online account to search for jobs. You can search by keyword, location or job category. Each posting includes a description of the position and the minimum required qualifications.

Don't see an opening that interests you but want to find out about future openings? Set up a Job Alert after creating an online account and receive email alerts with new job opportunities that match your search criteria. You may also want to check back as we frequently add new opportunities to our career site. You can also join our Talent Network so we can stay connected.

Apply Online

When you find a specific opening you are interested in, apply directly online. If this is the first time you are applying, you will be asked to create a profile by using your primary email address and creating a password. If you do not have an email address, there are several providers available that offer free email accounts (i.e., Yahoo, Google).

You may upload a resume and/or cover letter or type in the required information. MSC is an equal employment/affirmative action employer. We want to make sure our career website is accessible to any and all users. Therefore, if you need an accommodation for any part of the application process because of a medical condition or disability, in the U.S. please call (516) 812-1075 or send an email to talentacquisition@mscdirect.com.  In the United Kingdom, please call 0121-505-9608 or email human-resources@mscdirect.co.uk. (These phone numbers and email are not for general employment inquiries or vendors; rather it is strictly for applicants who require special assistance accessing our employment website.) Due to volume, only messages related to an accommodation will be returned.

After You Apply

We will send a confirmation email acknowledging that we have received your application submission. (If you don't receive an email, please check your email spam folder.) We review applications and only contact qualified candidates who most closely match the position requirements to begin the process. In some cases, not all applications will be reviewed.

Interview Process

Our interview and selection process can vary in length of time based on the position and location. As part of the process, you may be meeting with a Human Resources representative, the Hiring Manager, and other team members via telephone, in-person or video conference. This process is mutually beneficial and allows both MSC and you to gather pertinent information and ensure the right fit.


Once the interview process is complete, the most qualified candidate is selected and extended an offer. All hires must successfully complete the background check process which may include a drug screen. Candidates who were interviewed and not selected will be notified once a decision has been made.

MSC is dedicated to selecting individuals based on their qualifications for a specific position and are committed to a policy of equal employment and affirmative action. We will not discriminate against an applicant or associate based on their age, sex, pregnancy, affectional or sexual orientation, race, color, creed, religion, national origin or ancestry, citizenship, marital status, disability, military or veteran status or any category protected under applicable law.

Thank you for exploring job opportunities with MSC.
