I enjoy working with my coworkers , and we have a great relationship. Since I have been a supply planner , more and more is expected of us as planners , and it seems like there is not enough time in a day to get the job done. We as planners seem to wear many hats. We are expected to review many reports , involved with our traffic dept on a continual basis to check the status of our orders ( and many times having to find out what is causing a delay with delivery even though the order was placed with the vendor with plenty of lead time to get manufactured and picked up by our carriers.) i am being honest , if our planners did not have to worry about so many "other" factors , that would free up more time in the day to concentrate on "planning." Unfortunately , getting pulled into other situations causes the day to last nine or ten hours per day. I would be happy to work an eight-hour day.
