A very demanding position that I love the challenges.
Senior Procurement Administrator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 8, 2015
As a Senior Procurement Administrator, I was always given the critical automotive contracts that could stop bus service such as tires, batteries, diesel, etc.
I procured other very important commodities such as transit buses, trucks, parts from drawings, etc. They were important, but if the CTA ran out of diesel fuel for lack of a contract, that would be a disaster. If the CTA had to order a fleet of cargo vans a month later, it would be an inconvenience.
It was very rewarding to be responsible for so much that affects operations.
My door to door commute was 5:30 am to 8:30 pm.
