As the head purchasing agent for my company, I have many responsibilities. I order supplies for our over 100 branches, and our company is one of the largest HVAC dealers in the south. We have multiple sources to purchase our HVAC units from and I order from them all monthly. I am responsible to get all those HVAC units and repair supplies delivered by truck, train or car as soon as they can get there. With so many locations and with each one conducting more and more HVAC replacements or repairs on their schedules, I’ll soon need an assistant to ensure that I get all the supplies out to the HVAC technicians in a timely fashion. When a homeowners’ air conditioner fails them in the middle of the summer, that homeowner does not care where their new HVAC unit or parts came from, as long as it works and gets cold air flowing again throughout their home. I order everything that is HVAC related for our branches. Everything from the units themselves to the parts, filters, and even the nuts and bolts needed for our HVAC techs to work effectively. I even order their uniforms, with our company logo. I also get to go to the HVAC expos, which is always a lot of fun and I get to see all the new HVAC products coming out. Since the company is growing quickly, as long as I get everyone their HVAC supplies in a timely manner, I don’t see any reason why I will not be employed a long time!
