32 years forklift experience. I have loaded and unloaded every type of truck, trailer and rail car.Even though my 26 year job was in the hardwood flooring trade I had to learn the lumber and molding trade to help with the sale. As the warehouse manager I was also in charge of all quarterly inventories and helping with sales on the order desk. I also have 26 years experience in customer sales and installing. My safety record and attendance performance were excellent and all our customers always came back. Weather conditions do not bother me at all because all our flatbed trucks were unloaded outside in the 300 days of Seattle rain. Moving to Denver was the best thing that could of happened to my family and we have no plans of ever moving so long term employment it what I am looking for.
I started work the day after graduating high school as a warehouse helper. Over the next 26 years I learned every office, warehouse and inventory control job needed to become the store manager. I personally managed production activities to guarantee 100% of orders were shipped on-time.
My main job is pulling product and cutting it down to size. I consult chart specifications to select appropriate type of metal, maintain proper stock levels on a line, ensure that the most cost-effective production methods are employed and inspect finished products for quality and adherence to customer specifications.
Managed team of 10 professionals, supervised material flow, storage and global order fulfillment, oversaw special orders and after-hours, urgent shipping jobs, unloaded, picked, staged and loaded products for shipping and maintained accurate stock records and schedules.
Served as mentor to junior team members, supervised material flow, storage, ran the warehouse, forklift, stalked the warehouse, processed customs duties and fees quickly to release shipments. I negotiated bulk shipping discounts with contracted carriers and I evaluated operational records and made scheduling adjustments to maximize efficiency. Coordinated with freight forwarders to expedite shipments, loaded products weighing up to 100 pounds onto trailers for delivery and stacked and transported all overstock to storage areas.
