A highly seasonal industry.
Material and Finished Goods Planner (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 8, 2013
As part of a highly seasonal industry, the time of year changes what is required in day to day processes in order to manage inventory for contract business and North American Breweries products.
Key skills learned in this position include inventory management, production material purchasing release management, inbound/outbound logistics, customer service and finished goods/packaging component set up. This mainly takes place during the peak season.
Being a relatively small company, there is very little room for advancement within the company.
The hardest part of this job is to remain challenged in the off season when the demands of the job are few. This is a period when production and demand is limited throughout the industry and mandatory shut down periods are a regular occurrence.
Four weeks vacation and the ability to interact daily with senior management.
Mandatory shut downs that use two weeks of vacation time, no sick days and little room for future advancement.
