I work in the Purchasing Dept of Willamette Dental Group and, for the most part, love my job. I moved up to the position over the last 10 years and have expanded the "Buyer" title to mean a variety of things for me. For example, I also oversee:
- Accounts Receivables
-Procurement software setup and training
-Production software item setup
-Productions software purchase order maintenance
Just to name a few. I love that the job changes all the time and provides challenges. it ensures an active job that is never dull or repetitive. Our mission statement of evident based dentistry is also something that I believe in both as an employee & patient, making it a really great place to work for. I aslo love that it is healthcare so you are making a difference in your community as well as being in a field that will never be obsolete.
