Week 10

This week at work was a new experience for me. I got to work in the purchasing department for a couple of days and then got to work with a contractor at a job site. The purchasing department was really interesting because we got to see all of the pricings and types of companies that are in the industry. A lot of what I did was analyze the price of how much it is for us to purchase and how much we can sell it for. It was very cool for me to see because I’ve always enjoyed working with numbers. Working with the contractor was a very fun experience as well. I worked with Scott, from Elite Electric and we were working on a house. I got to see how the wires ran through the house and how to switch the outlet plugs around the house. We also installed a fan and light in three bedrooms. It was very fun to network with him and really get to see what his job is like. I learned a lot about our products and how they are put to use. I intend on going to another one of his job sites this upcoming week to bring him lunch. I think this is a good way for me to speak with him more and really get to know him. This upcoming week I will be working in the projects department. I am very excited to work on big projects that are crucial to the company. Our main projects employee, worked for 20 years at one of our manufacturers and I know that I can learn a lot from him. I am excited to see what the following week brings and get the opportunity to learn more about our company and its different sectors.
