Summary

I have enjoyed my experience so far with Republic and know that I would become an invaluable asset to the greatly leadership which has helped Youngstown become a better business unit.

I offer multiple years of leadership experience from customer service, social, and transportation fields. Many employees of Republic , both Union and non, have directly told me that I would make an excellent Supervisor. Whether it is assisting Supervisors early in the work day, helping other drivers get their trucks working or providing them with more intimate knowledge of the route they will be on, offering constructive, consistent feedback on all routes , helping whenever needed, or simply asking uncommon questions, I always try to increase my value to Republic while helping to make it a better place for everyone involved.
