"Senior Buyer is precisely what I enjoy doing. I appreciate being entrusted and empowered to represent my company and to speak on behalf of my company within the Total Quality Management realm; customers and suppliers both in house and out of the house, upstream and downstream. Effective communication and maturity in negotiations is very rewarding to me, personally."
"There was a fair amount of autonomy with this position."

"American TV has given me employment for the past 30 years for which I am grateful, but after many cuts more work was placed on the remaining buyers and marketing managers and since I was responsible for both for the audio products the job became almost unbearable. So I have decided to start a new venture in my life and look for something not in the retail business."
"I love being able to help people find all of the products and also multitasking, The thing that I hate about inside sale / buyers if when I am not able to get a item because it is either discontinued or obsolete."
"I love being a buyer. I love having to negotiate prices to try and find the best costs for items, ensuring orders are shipped in a timely fashion, etc."
"You directly effect the success of the manufacturing operations."

"The impact the position has on the supply chain process. Negotiating pricing, internal process working w/different departments to achieve desired results. Problem solving to neutralize issues to the supply chain. examples: MRB resolution, process department/ inter-departmental challenges based upon focus factory meetings being part of a winning team in resolution management. As for hate in my work, there is none. I feel you create or contribute to problems. I rarely have problems."
