Liked the work I did, workers nice enough, weak management, had theft of parts, lacked leadership, policy and procedures.
Parts Specialist (Former Employee) – Seguin, TX – October 2, 2014
Hook up remote computer (worked at remote site). Review and estimate inventory needed. Online or by phone request price quotes for items to be purchased. Create Purchase Orders for multiple vendors from the quotes received. Assist mechanics by supplying parts needed. Send parts runner for parts pick up. Receive parts, check in, put into stock, resolve shortages, etc. Post received items to inventory. Match packing slips to Purchase Orders, scan documents and also physically turn them into office.
I learned the importance of keeping these units road ready.
Management was nice however they lacked having written policy and procedure in place.
Co-workers were cordial. We were so busy there wasn't much conversation exchanged except work related.
Hardest part of the job was a lack of management.
Rewarding to get a unit up and running that had been down for repair. Also watching swap, shift change of drivers and 50 plus trucks w/tankers lined up for pre-work inspection.
Close commute, had benefits.
Lack of written policy and procedure.
