A typical day in a buyer's role requires emailing, phone calls and attending meetings on a regular basis. Continuous communication with suppliers, internal team, and customer. No formal training about what the company does; only job shadowing and mentoring involved. Management needs to adopt newer ideas in terms of completing tasks rather than constantly escalating situations. Most importantly, interns are not taken seriously or valued. The most enjoyable part was going home. Overall, the company needs to re-evaluate their culture and how to treat their employees. A very negative environment that needs some serious change.
Great cafeteria and food, above average hourly pay, excellent place to learn about Supply Chain
Constant micromanagement, no sense of respecting employees, ideas aren't encouraged, interns are not taken seriously, lots of office politics, constant escalation
