Q: What is it like working as a Buyer?
Buyer in Springfield:
"Ups and Downs."
Pros: I work offsite
Cons: I miss the action at times
Management is overbearing and incompetent for the most part. The micromanaging is suffocating! And the pay is not worth the extra duties and responsibilities they make you take on. You may go in for one thing but end up working several different positions with no compensation. Pay raises, though annual are a joke.
Buyer in Seattle:
"City of Dreams."
Pros: I like the diversity Seattle has to offer.
Cons: For most people who work in Seattle, the parking is terrible.
