  • "I enjoy being a Purchasing Agent because it offers an opportunity to be educated every day. Purchasing affects every department in a company and every supplier they have. They can mean the difference between profitability and loss and have the opportunity and responsibility to make that difference meaningful. This gives an opportunity to take personal pride and gain a sense of achievement in everything you do."

  • "I have worked for Robert Half at Cable One for one month and found the recruiter to be very knowledgeable about the job she was placing me on. She followed up during the interview process and was sure that I understood all the requirements of the job. The manager of Cable One that I interviewed with provided me with a history of the position and the expectations of the purchasing agent."
