All together I have just over 8 year of experience in an industrial setting. With my first two years spent as a contractor, I've acquired a fairly diversified knowledge of one of the largest Tate and Lyle plants worldwide during my stint as an industrial cleaner. I operated very dangerous equipment with water cleaning at up to pressure of 10,000 psi. The industrial vacuum trucks, although much less impressive, still possess very potent hazards to those that are not careful. This includes operating the machinery from inside permitted confined spaces in less than favorable conditions. Whenever this type of work came up, I was always one of the guys that my supervisor could count on to get the job done and in a safe fashion. I also received a personal thank you card written by the CEO of HtH for a safety issue my crew and I recognized prior to putting ourselves in harm's way, following the fatality at ADM of a virtually identical safety issue that had occurred.
In my time working directly for Tate and Lyle, there were leadership roles that became available which I likely could have obtained, but I was content in the position I was in. I also felt I could be of more value to the company for the knowledge I had obtained in the quickly growing process that I was most proficient in. This process involved high temperatures (up to 500 degrees), hazardous chemicals such as acids and alkaline which are detrimental if they come in contact with human skin or flesh. At least two of these processes in which I am proficient involved high temperatures, hazardous chemicals, and high pressures. Throughout my entire career, I have maintained nothing shy of an admirable safety record, complying to all company guidelines and sustaining no personal injuries myself. I was also involved in the response to a coworker of mine sustaining a substantial injury, resulting in the loss of digits and significant function of one of his hands. Aside from this being a traumatic experience, I feel some sense of assurance knowing I was capable to function in a timely fashion to assist in this coworker receiving the help he needed to make it through this circumstance as best he could. He is currently able to fish and perform a lot of the former activities he enjoyed, I believe in no small part to the timely response of the EMT's and all his fellow coworkers that aided him almost instantaneously.
In my time here I demonstrated a very firm work ethic which was rewarded by a quick climb to a semi-leader role. My direct supervisor saw my willingness to contribute to being a team player and placed me in a control room position in under the first two years I spent being employed here. I then went on to train my replacement in the position I was in, as well as gained the expertise of a secondary control room position and I have been utilized in that role for the past 4 years of my employ. I have been an incredibly beneficial asset toward running two out of the three control room positions available, as well as being involved in a process that has been deemed profitable enough to take priority over another area which was shut down in favor over investing millions of dollars into increasing the capacity of the process which I have the majority of my knowledge in. I am a quick learner, meticulous in the task I am placed to, and I have an immense drive to succeed. I also was a reference for one of your current OIT, whom I recommended as an asset to your current team.
I have performed industrial cleaning with 10k psi water blaster. I was also proficient in use of a jetter (high water volume, lower pressure), as well as driving, operating, and manning the functional side of an industrial vacuum truck. I've used this to clean inside of boilers, food grade environments, as well as been vaccinated with Twinrix, a dual hepatitis vaccination to allow cleaning of less than sanitary situations (e.g. related to needles or waste atmospheres). At the the time of my departure from this career, I was being offered a supervisor position which I turned down to proceed my next career within the same plant as a process operator proceeding into the food ingredients industry of an international chain.
In this role, I began out of college. I started doing labor, working on unloading merchandise from trucks, organizing it to pallets based on departments, and then distributing it to be stocked to those departments by the end of the night. I quickly rose from this position to manage inventory counts of what was in stock in the backroom as well as on the sales floor. This was a fairly detail-oriented position, relying on counts of merchandise, as well as the ability to reliable restock items which were out of stock to optimize movement of merchandise from the storeroom to the customer. Prior to leaving this position, I was being approached by assistant managers in the store about being potential groomed for a manager/leadership position.
