Start negotiating the $$$ on Tuesday. They are preparing their offer right now!! greenstars.gif greenstars.gif greenstars.gif Start date would be May 31st. They asked if that would be enough time to coordinate daycare -- what? a company that actually cares about life outside of work. OMFG! thumbsup.png

It's a very large Canadian company with a well-known world-wide presence. I'd prefer not to reveal the company name. I guarantee that we've all seen or used their products in our lifetime.

My position will be in supply chain (procurement and global sourcing). I'd be handling all the legal contracts for the supply side of the local business unit. I'd report to the director who reports to the VP. I'd be working with and coaching 17 internal buyers.

Each product they manufacture is worth in the millions and a product leaves the line once per day up to once every six days. The number of components and the critical design nature for safety of the products makes my new job absolute insanity! I'd be developing supplier relationships, protecting company interests, etc. The intent would be to try to avoid any litigation needs be resolving issues before they needed to be advanced to the corporate lawyers. I'd also be working closely with the project management group to ensure the customers interests are being met, as well as the company interests.

I'm so excited now!!!


ETA: the job is up north.

Haha. Thank you. I'm sure you've overestimated my negotiating skills. Sadly, in the state of this economy, I'm hardly in a power position.

We decided to start the process off early. I have the base offer. It's very fair; actually quite good. They bumped up the base salary even before they sent it off to me because they knew I was hit on that right away. lol I've already wiggled in an extra week of vacation (up to 4 weeks + 1 week at Xmas... SWEET!!), a salary review within 8-9 months instead of a full year away, and now I'm trying to bump up the starting base salary and some work-at-home time. After that, I start digging into the benefits and pension. hehehe

I love this part. :-P


Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I feel like myself again!!!
