At Baldwin Industrial Supply, my duty as a delivery man was to familiarize myself with the locations of companies that purchased various sizes of nails and staples from Baldwin, and get them delivered in a timely manner. The locations I delivered to range from Porterville to Sacramento, with a maximum load weight of 15,000 lbs. strapped to the Dodge Ram flat-bed truck I was assigned to drive. When I was not delivering nails and staples for the company, I spent the rest of my time in the warehouse performing maintenance to the pneumatic tools given back to the company rendered out of commission by customers. I also obtained a great deal of forklift driving experience from this particular occupation, as I was using the forklift to load skids with 2,500 lbs. of weight onto the truck at least three times a week.
As a member of the temporary installation team for Compac Sorting, we focused our efforts primarily on building three pre-grader machines and three pack-line machines. The duties I carried out with my fellow co-workers ranged from cutting and drilling stainless steel to bolting pieces of the machine together and upright. We used levels and lasers to calibrate the midsection base to the uniform height of the other machines next to it. At numerous times, I, as well as the rest of the team, was required to solve problems with the older machines that were built before the new pack-lines and pre-graders so as to ensure efficiency. I bolted on metal extrusions to the top of the machines, assembled many small parts, joined belts together for running the fruit, ran chains down the entire machines with the help of the entire team, and carried out many small tasks that were required of me.
As a detailer under Cam's Detailing, we specialized in washing, waxing, buffing, headlight restoration, and carpet shampooing on automobiles and boats. I was relied on to perform all of these jobs, as well as carry out the necessary functions for chrome and aluminum rim restoration on any vehicle.
