Avoid Purchasing Manager Position
Purchasign Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 24, 2018
Working conditions in the purchasing department is beyond filthy with roaches, barrels of cooking grease stored in purchasing area, no AC during hot summer days, and no heat during the winter. Salary is well below average for a Purchasing Manager position. Good luck with back breaking work making 40k-50k annually while Servers make 70k-100k annually. Department is understaffed, 3 Purchasing staff members that cover both The Brown Palace Hotel and Holiday Inn totaling 500+ rooms. That is unacceptable! Purchasing Manager Title is very misleading! The department is understaffed you’ll spend majority of your time receiving, stocking, and delivering beverage items. You’re basically a Purchasing Clerk with a Manager title. The Brown Palace Hotel is a high volume Food and Beverage revenue machine, meaning you’ll never have any administrative responsibilities Examples: price cost analyst reports, food and beverage cost control etc. This position is perfect for any individual that’s content with limited growth in procurement/purchasing knowledge, willing to push heavy carts all day, and physically stocking thousands of dollars’ worth of Beverage each day.
Meeting great employees, and The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa looks appealing on your resume.
