I am a dedicated and hard worker. I have had many different jobs over the years sense I was 14 I have worked on and off. From 14 to 16 years of age I mowed my neighbors orchard with a push mower for 3 dollars an hour. At 17 I then started to work for my friends dad in the fields and his forklift business. In the field i tended to wine grapes and in the shop i worked on repairing and welding on forklifts. From there I was laid off and went to work at Cabral Dodge in Manteca CA starting as a car wash guy. I quickly flew by the other guys in that position and showed my interest in the lube tech position. Working hard i achieved this position and was trained on how to do it. After 7 months in that position I was laid off. From there I had a break in employment because my mom was not doing well so i moved to Oregon to take care of her. After she got better we moved to Arkansas where i got a job as a welder. I worked that job for a year and a half till i was laid off again. From there I met a friend and started helping him remodel houses. That slowly slowed down and ran out so i moved back here to California and started working at Petes Restaurant as a dish washer. I work as hard as i could and slowly moved up to line cook. Then i got a job offer to sell parts for Harley Davidson so i took that and was let go a few months later.
