Last week was our first week in our first rotations. I have been placed within Revenue Management for the Grocery team, which is responsible for pricing in retail stores. We work with two of the most iconic products, KRAFT Blue Box macaroni and cheese dinner, and HEINZ Ketchup. Last week was a bit hectic for my team since much of our work was due for submission to other teams within Sales and Marketing who can use it for their own purposes. Because of this, I helped my team out with some of the urgent things they needed to get done. I was responsible for updating files to a new format. This was a lot harder than it sounds, since a lot of the information was represented in different ways throughout the files. I used macros to helped me automate this job.
This week, I’ll be starting my 6 week project for the first rotation, and I’ll be working on pricing and promotions for salad dressing. Fun!
Also, last week I made eye contact with Warren Buffet when he was here for the board meeting, and watched a little bit of Lollapalooza from the windows of the 76th floor.
