A Good Experience for a Student
Student Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 2 September 2014
I received the opportunity to work at HPS while I was on summer break in my second year of college. I could not be more glad that I took this opportunity.
I learned the various responsibilities that are expected of a junior buyer such as placing and maintaining purchase orders, and expediting where need be. It was actual on the job experience which was much more beneficial than classroom learning alone. I learned the importance of deadlines in a manufacturing environment.
Management and co-workers were easy to get along with and always glad to help me if I had a question. I learned a lot from everyone here. I also learned about various other roles in a manufacturing setting, and how Purchasing interacts with these other individuals.
Overall, it was a very good experience, and I would not be where I am now without this opportunity.
