Enthusiastic individual adept at learning new skills and collaborating with others as part of a team. Accurate and conscientious with solid knowledge of inventory and control procedures.
My job was to follow orders in the most blunt way possible. A large portion of the work was forklift related, mostly because when I was hired we were relocating to a job down the street. I used a large CAT forklift, and a Gehl Telescopic Lift Truck. I used an oxyfuel torch often to cut up scrap metal. I drove a large stake truck all over the state, from Detroit to bay city, to different job sites to deliver different materials. I visited many different places of business to pick up materials to drop off. Additonal Duties included:
Started off as a machine operator. We worked 12 hour shift, alternating 3 and 4 day work weeks with another team. We manufactured PVC piping for use in construction. The press operator job was to ensure of quality parts, properly package parts, and properly assemble a skid of the respective product, wrap it with plastic wrap and label it. I was then promoted to the grind room operator position. This job was to separate all scrap materials, and put them through the industrial sized grinder. Once a palleted container was finished, i would weigh it, label it, seal it, and then clean the grind room spotless to begin the grinding of the next material type. In our slower months i learned to do the material handling job. This job was to ensure the machines were being fed the proper material continuously throughout the shift. We had 40 machines and 3 drivers including myself. We also handled the finished skids from the press operators. Additional duties included:
