You'll also have the opportunity to follow up on open orders to ensure timely receipt of ordered products, run backorder reports and help with backorder follow-up, ensure fulfillment of customer special orders, create purchase orders, analyze sales trends to manage product replenishment, develop and improve technical skills to perform analysis quickly and efficiently, and execute returns and markdowns as specified by the Category Manager.
