In almost every job I have held, I have been able to work my way up the ladder through hard work and dedication. I am an honest, hard working, loyal person who is able to show up on time and do what I am directed by my superiors. I am also not afraid to stay late or come in early should the job dictate those things.
When I first started at the Cactus, I was a doorman but have worked my way up to bartender over the time that I have worked there. As a doorman it was my duty to ensure that all customers are having a safe, fun experience. We were also responsible for sweeping up trash at the end of the night and also cleaning the trash cans. A few times a night we would have to escort people up to the front door who were too intoxicated. As a bartender my main focus is to be friendly and to quickly and accurately make drinks for the customers and to ring them up correctly.
At DKA my main responsibilities are to assist in the completion of residential and commercial jobs from start to finish. In the warmer months, we specialize in Dryvit application and in the colder months we will do everything we can to stay busy, mainly plastering, drywall finishing, carpentry, laying tile, and installing drop ceilings. When we work on Dryvit installation, I help build and tear down frame scaffolding, unload materials from the truck in to the trailer and then help with the application of the Dryvit system. Usually when installing the Dryvit, I cut the foam board to the sizes that my coworkers need and then they hang it on the wall. After the foam is hung we all use hawks and trowels to apply the cementitious basecoat that has mesh embedded to add strength and to help protect the foam. After the layer of basecoat is dried and cured, we then apply the finish. The finish is an acrylic finish with aggregate added for texture. My job when we apply finish is to float the finish so it has the right look and feel to it when it dries. Once the finish is dried we remove any plastic covering and tape that we applied to protect anywhere that we wanted to keep clean and then tear down scaffold and move on to the next spot.
When I worked at the carwash, I originally started out as an associate and eventually worked my way up to assistant manager. I was responsible for writing a weekly schedule, reviewing and adhering to any safety guidelines and also ensuring that the associates were following these guidelines as well. I also was in charge of measuring and ordering the soaps and detergents that we used and needed to replenish each week. I did a weekly order of various items that we would use throughout the operation of business (pens, rubber gloves, safety glasses, etc.). One of my main responsibilities as assistant manager was also to be out in the operation of the carwash, selling washes side by side with the associates and also ensuring that vehicles get through the wash quickly and safely. I would handle any customer complaints and document customers who felt their vehicles were damaged in the wash process and send their information along to the main office for further review. Once a week I would observe an associate in a position and critique their performance against the guidelines that were already written out and deliver my honest feedback to them and encourage them to improve what needed to be improved and to keep doing the things that they were doing well. I would also type out a weekly report to the general manager of my location and report on things that I had accomplished for the current week (maintenance tasks, orders received, any employee concerns, and customers complaints).
As a counselor at Straight Arrow Day Camp, I was responsible for a group of 8-12 elementary aged kids each week. My main focus was to ensure that each child had a fun, safe experience every week. It was also my job to teach the kids the rules for each different activity that they would be participating throughout the day (activities included: archery, canoeing, bb gun shooting, horseback riding, climbing wall).
I studied at Ivy Tech for a semester and a half before deciding to work full time at the carwash and pursue a manager position.
When I went to Faith, I was involved in multiple sports teams (basketball, baseball), helped set up and tear down for many activities that were taking place at the school or at the church, and was a member of a daily Bible study group that met every day before school started.
