Hardworking and reliable Inventory Control Specialist/Packaging associate, with strong ability to work independently and efficiently. Offering strong attention to detail, ability to multitask and maintain accurate monthly cycle counts with multiple vendors. Highly organized, proactive and punctual with team-oriented mentality.

In addition to the above duties, I also have over a year experience in proper forklift operation and am very comfortable and efficient at loading/unloading trailers/containers and transporting material from different locations in the warehouse. I am also OSHA10 certified, and a member of the safety team at Polymer Alliance Services. These duties include bi-weekly meetings to discuss incidents and resolutions to said incidents and preventive measures to insure safety of employees.

Since this pandemic, I chose to stay at PAS (Polymer Alliance Services) and not take a voluntary lay off. While many of my co workers did take the lay off, I indulged my mind and learned other processing operations in the warehouse.
