Bid department gives bid pricing to certain customers to stay competitive. These customers are other commercial companies. Once the customer sold the product they purchased from us they could then get credit. The credit was the difference of the cost purchased and the bid pricing. That was only after they sent me proof they sold our products to their customer. My research was to make sure the items were purchased from us and the customer sold our product in the time frame the bid was for, bid pricing and actual cost. Of course pricing issues and discrepancies come up and I have to deal with the sales dept., bid dept., and customer to work it all out. I also helped in collecting money on past due invoices, researched proof of deliveries, participated in yearly inventory, pulled files for state auditors, and anything else I could help with. It was a very detail oriented job. There was no room for error once all paperwork got to me. I enjoyed this job very much. It was very unfortunate I was laid off.
