Former Manager of over 300 employees
I was the Department head of Procurement and then promoted to the
Supply Chain Manager, which had cognizance over both Warehouses, Travel Accounting, and Cost/Price, and Analysts, and Procurement Quality Assurance. A typical day at work included managing five division managers, who helped me manage my department; the final reviewer over all contracts over $1M, and handling and adjudicating numerous personnel issues. At my level I learned very little technically, and had to manage the workplace culture. The hardest part of the job was ensuring that adequate contracts were placed and managed appropriately. The most enjoyable part was working with employees, many times helping them find solutions to complex problems.
