The typical day of work is packed with things to do and learning opportunities around every corner. Especially, for someone just coming into the procurement world. There is a lot of expediting due to the customer demand changing frequently. Being able to adjust your schedule,multitask, and micromanage the suppliers is a must! Knowledge of the way overseas shipments happen is a benefit but not absolutely needed.
This role needs someone secure in their abilities but willing to adjust based on the companies needs and wants. There is room for improvement in this role and as long as you have the patience to push for that change it will happen. The role is currently not very efficient - there are several tools available that would improve the efficiency of this role. There is a lot of job security in this role but no room for advancement.
This company provides amazing insurance benefits and the people you work with are like family. The events the company holds are fun. There are always homemade treats brought in and pot lucks, along with food donation competitions and chili cook offs.
