Professional Summary

EXPERIENCE Walmart produce associate, Department manager, Assistant manager, GM Coach. Hire date: June 22 2013 - As a produce associate I was responsible for insuring the sales floor was stocked with the highest quality of produce. I also received and maintained merchandise to insure the freshness of produce was being available for the customers. I have been a department manager where I was responsible for on hands being correct, price changes, working freight, training my sales associates and helping them advance their career, and providing exceptional customer service. I was promoted to assistant manager in December of 2019. I had a great number of responsibilities such as, being directly responsible for the successes and failures in my area, developing my team to help them grow and promote, setting up interviews and hiring new talent, ordering fixtures and supplies, reviewing financial reports, and working with my peers to support them in their areas of the store. I was promoted to GM Coach in May of 2021. This has been my biggest role to date. I am now responsible for the entire general merchandise side of a 100 million dollar store. I have all of the same responsibilities as when I was an assistant manager just on a much larger scale. My focus is greatly on people. With this role my main priority is to develop and support my associates while at the same time running a successful business that has year to year growth. Having a real love of helping people and a positive attitude are critical to the success of this role. Customer service is very important to me as well, having compassion and empathy are the cornerstones of helping people whether they are a customer or an associate. I truly enjoy giving back to the community and getting to really know the people in the area. This role has allowed me the opportunity to help people and make a positive impact on the world around me. I hope to continue down a path to make a difference.
