Computer-focused, team atmosphere with very nice facilites
Parts Procurement (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 31 July 2018
My position in Parts Procurement was alongside 8-10 other team members, although we were situated in a warehouse full of technicians, other administrative teams, and order pickers. A typical day had us sitting at a desk with 2+ monitors, completing "work orders" by ordering the appropriate part from the appropriate vendor. We, as a team, could complete over 1,000+ work orders daily. I quickly become proficient with the Word, Excel, and Outlook programs through Microsoft, as well as learning 2 computer systems, and various "wizards" in which we used to order parts. Our management system with in tiers, with a team leaders who were more hands-on with any questions, approvals. We then had a Manager whom was above the team leaders, and whom would conduct the bi-weekly meetings. The workplace culture was a calm, welcoming, and happy environment. The hardest part of the job would be sitting at a desk for 5+ hours day, I would have liked to see sit-stand desks. The most enjoyable part of the job was my team, sitting with them and being able to create friendships while accomplishing our daily tasks. The most impressive part was the efficiency in which any problem, question, computer error, or general inquiry was taken care of. The only reason I did not star at this job was because I was hired on a contract basis, and when my contract was near finishing, the administrative budget did not allow for a full-time permanent position.
Nice facilities, in-house cafeteria, clean work space, job advancement
No personal electronics allowed in the building ( emergencies), sitting at desk.
