Per week during the summer, it takes over 40 hours.
It requires similar hours to a part-time job during the winter semester (15-20/wk, arranged around your school schedule as you choose). In the summer months its full-on, meaning, more than you typical 40 hours per week. You can expect to be busy, with many responsibilities. As you learn the role, and become more efficient, you'll be able to better manager your days, but in the first half of summer its pretty all-consuming.
Because I've been in the field for over 15 years and am not a beginner I see myself retiring in about 15 years so this is a hard one to answer. I think most employers are looking for insight into your goals and to see what motivates you. If you are looking to grow your career or if you are happy where you are or if you'd like to take their job. For me the answer is I'm happy where I am, I don't mind taking on additional responsibilities if the pay increases accordingly but I'm not driven to reach the top. I've been there and don'e that and am perfectly content to be a worker bee.
I have worked for a Belgium Bank for 23 years as a Facilities Manager & Purchasing Coordinator, I believe that the most important issue in Purchasing is being able to find ways on how to help any employer to save money, and show respect that any employer who's willing to provide a full time position and with that include, medical, pay sick days and everything that comes with the position, should understand that showing that you're a professional, employers will see the great job that you're doing and will take care of you, I know I have lived it in the past and looking forward for the future that employers are people who look out for their workers, I'm also looking towards retiring in about 15 years and believe that the statement above is the right way of answering this statement. I'm happy being part of the team, not being number 1.
