Logistics Specialist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Logistics Specialist?

Logistics Specialist in Troy:
"Emergency Department Work Culture."
Pros: I like collaborating with the lobotomy staff, the pharmacy staff, and the head nursing staff to deliver internal products at the right time to the right person.
Cons: It would be beneficial to the job if there were were better defined rules and If I could have a person(s) that I could supervise. The logistics specialists who work in the Emergency Room Department need more supervision and guidance at present.

Logistics Specialist in St. Clair Shores:
"Complex and Intellectual."
Pros: The one thing I like the most about my job, is the fact that there is never a day where I don't learn something new.
Cons: My job can almost be as bad as being a detective when it comes down to figuring out where a part came from that has no location or number to go with it.
