Vector Security - Operations Team Leader 412
Chattanooga, TN, 05/2021 - Current

As Operations team leader at 412, I have dove into the role of chief compliance officer. My goal is to minimize risk by ensuring that the store has the highest possible level of compliance in all key related areas.

*I do this by ensuring that self-reviews and self-audits are conducted in a serious manner.

*By taking a key role in internal and external 3rd party audits. I try to be the person in charge of corrective actions, and action plans, based on results.

*By ensuring that all related documentation is properly shared, reported and filed in a timely manner. Food safety self-audit, 5S Self-audit, and shrink self review turned in weekly.

*In addition to ensuring compliance with elements related to Safety, Shrink, County State and Federal inspections, Company CBT compliance, 5S, Payroll punch edits, Payroll late meals: All to help ensure the overall safety of our company and our companies bottom line.

Also in my time at 412, I have immersed myself in CAO. I have committed to daily negative reports and cycle counting throughout the store. Along with ordering for creative ends and new displays, in addition to investigating and finding new products to fill in when things don't arrive as expected.

*Through these efforts we've kept our shelves and displays throughout the store looking full along with driving higher sales.

*Most recently at 412, I focused on getting involved with the P&L spreadsheets to understand them more in depth as well as reviewing and understanding the weekly labor forecasts along with scheduling weekly labor throughout the store. Labor is definitely our biggest expense. Its amazing how small tweaks to the plan can ultimately make a big differences in the profit margin.
