Former supply chain "grunt"
Sr. Manager, Supply Chain (Former Employee) – Florence, SC – September 26, 2016
I use the term "grunt" definitively.
If you're willing to become a grunt / go-for responding to the whim of a "manager", and I use the term loosely, then this is the place for you.
I would grant a period of transition for 18-24 months, but not 3 years. Trial by fire was the order of the day - try it, if it didn't work, try something else and just keep trying. But don't loose sight of the MISSION No. 1 - reduce costs but don't risk production - even if it's not right.
Until they get their compass set accurately, turmoil is the order of the day and be willing to take you share of criticism - due or not.
Overall, a good company - just not this location
