The decisions you make every day will have a direct and immediate impact on the company’s finances.

You will start as a Supply Analyst, working with other departments to understand what they need and then going out and finding the best ways to meet those needs. You will research cost and quality, make suggestions and set long-term buying strategies. You will use the latest supply-chain processes, information systems and transportation logistics to manage a network of warehouses and more than $150 million in inventory and material assets.


  • Business, supply chain, finance, accounting, transportation logistics or warehouse operations degrees and experience.
  • You must be an analytical thinker and problem-solver.
  • Confident communicator and a team player with leadership skills.


As a new employee, you will work on a team, with a manager who will mentor your personal and professional progress. Your skills will continue to grow with ongoing professional development and training.
