Even though it is not readily apparent in my resume, I have always accepted positions with companies in a simple and supportive role. Through an innate mechanic ability, an unrivaled work ethic I acquired naturally from my parents, pride in my work, and the desire to work with others as a team player, I advanced my position with every company I worked with. When I began working with Prairie International Trucks, Inc. at the Springfield, Illinois location, I accepted a position on graveyard shift as shift supervisor. Within three years of my tenure with that company, I was promoted three times. In less than six months after the third promotion, I was presented with an opportunity to open an off site location in Greencastle, PA. My mission at that time was to build a dealership location starting with myself and one employee. From that chance, and with the confidence the owner had in my ability, we created a pre-delivery inspection and warranty repair center dedicated to one single customer. Labeled as Prairie International PDI Center, our goal was to constantly not just meet, but to exceed the expectations of the Jerr-Dan Corporation. Jerr-Dan was not only Prairie International's largest medium duty truck purchasing customer, but held the same title with International Truck and Engine Company as their largest medium duty truck purchasing agent for the entire continent of North America. We worked hard to set the standard for customer service at a level and pace that no other competitor could match. By the end of the third fiscal year in Pennsylvania, the PDI Center had grown in size and service offering a fully operational paint and body repair shop, the original pre-delivery inspection and warranty shop, and an assembly/fabrication/modification shop. Through this shop we were able to offer services such as wheel base and driveline modifications, wrecker body kit assembly/installation/ and testing, along with special fabrication/welding services. The Center employed 22 workers, maintained facilities for parts inventory, paint mixing machines, rooms for training and design meetings. Over the Seven year time period employed as General Manager of the facility, opportunities were made available to me. By attending training sessions when offered would educate me while expanding my skill sets through hands on training as well as the purely educational sessions. Attending diversified training has provided me with a level of understanding which allows me to step back knowing the importance of subordinate roles. I wish to express to you this:
along with my many years of repair experience, diverse training, and very high level of repair ability, I possess lessons learned from the teachings of life itself. It is the value of the wisdom learned from these lessons that keep me firmly grounded, focused, and willing to take on the tasks others consider less glamorous and less desired, but still necessary.
During the early years of my career, I worked for Prairie International Trucks, Inc. This was a full service dealership selling International Trucks, Parts, and Services. One title/job held was that of Warranty Administrator. While in this position, I received training, testing, and certification for many OEM suppliers in the areas of Administration of Warranty Service and Repair for:
Cummins Engine Corporation, Detroit Diesel, Allison Transmission, Fuller Eaton Transmission, Clutches and Drive Units, Spicer Drive Line, International Truck and Engine Company, Caterpillar Engine, Dana Steer Axles-Drive Axles and Drive Line Components and Fabrication, Bendix Brake Certification, Bendix Air Compressor Overhaul Certification, Holset Turbo Certification, Detroit Diesel B Series Injector Rebuild Certification, R12-R134A AC license, Hyster Forklift Hydraulic Diagnostic and Repair Certification, Akzo-Nobil Paint Mixing Certification, Sikkens Product Application Certification and several others.
|OEM Mechanical and Computer diagnostics, repair, maintenance and overhaul for most engine manufacturers with the exception being Mercedes Diesel. However it is simply a matter of learning their diagnostic software and terminology.|
Performed all aspects of mobile maintenance and repair to vehicles and equipment ranging from small engines such as gas powered weed trimmers, chainsaws, portable generators and power units, light duty automobiles, cars, trucks, and vans, medium duty automotive and diesel repair, heavy duty trucks and trailers, heavy equipment repairs, and locomotive maintenance and repair per customer needs. This job required administrative work in the areas of Billing, Purchasing, Inventory of Parts and Supplies, Estimating, Customer Service, Filing of Federal State and Local Taxes, Finance and Insurance Responsibilities, Scheduling, Accurate Accounting and Records Keeping, Warranty Tracking, and all the responsibilities involved with the day to day owning and operating an independent business.
I was originally hired as a production line assembly worker reading blueprints for assembly of the current job/build, obtaining the necessary parts to perform assembly of the section or system as assigned, completing the job within the scheduled time table, report any problems as they came up such as errors with drawings, parts, or system conflicts with location or routing. Moving large and heavy steel components with overhead cranes or forklifts as required in a safe, slow, and cautious manner complying fully with all company procedures and policies.
The company was experiencing an issue with one of the vendors. The vendor was behind in production of some parts that created a delay in the assembly process of several units in production creating a situation of excess workers. Due to the fear that a shortened work schedule might create a need for me to seek alternate employment, I was reassigned to the plant maintenance group due to my diversified skill set.
Maintenance technicians responsibilities included diagnostics, repair, or replacement as well as general maintenance to all plant equipment and the facility structure. This entailed repairs to overhead doors, overhead jib hoists, installation of jib hoists, overhead trolley cranes, forklifts with lifting capacities from 1 ton to as much as 50 tons, company automotive equipment, CNC and manual lathes, boring machines, milling machines, conveyor systems, CNC component burning tables, welders, hydraulic lifting and moving devices, relocating large manufacturing devices, machines, and organizing them into stations, leveling these machines, re-powering them, relocating major power supply systems under the direct supervision of the journeyman electrician, installing electrical conduit and metal tubing systems to house the electrical supply wires, installing "drops" to power the machines after relocating, arranging, designing, fabricating, installing, testing, and operating new hydraulic test stands and areas for the purpose of testing winches produced by the company, diagnosing, disassembly, repair and reassembly of turret lathes, CNC lathes, drill presses, large brake presses, sheering devices, and all other equipment, components, fixtures, furnaces, air conditioning, and plant cooling towers as needed.
