Is it for Health + Hospitals? If so, run far away now! Actually, if it’s for any hospital I’d still say run. I’ve been working in hospital supply chain / procurement for four years and it’s the most antiquated and frustrating work I’ve ever dealt with. If it’s for a public hospital it’s even worse because there are a lot of rules about bringing in new products or technology. Also, even if you start out with a good base pay raises are likely to be inflation. No bonuses. Impossible to move up unless someone leaves.
