Work History at First Solar
Indirect/Direct Global Commodity Manager (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – July 25, 2018
A typical day at work, you were assigned to your SOW and no one was looking over your shoulder. You knew what tasks needed to be done to meet your deadlines and you did it.
I learned a lot about renewable energy power plants.
Each manager has their own management style therefore you adjusted to management styles that was applicable to your SOW.
The culture promoted cross-functional collaboration but never quite reached that goal.
The hardest part of the job is based on individual perception. I enjoyed what I did. Therefore it was fun.
I loved travel and interacted with hotel sales managers, airline account managers, travel management company etc. In addition I got to see parts of Europe and Asia that I would not have the opportunity other wise.
Also meeting the most amazing people at other company locations i.e. Germany, Malaysia, Vietnam (suppliers as well as Associates) etc.
Dress Code: Business Casual
Sometimes managers are not thoroughly honest and retract certain statements.
