Additional Information

I have been part of a traveling team that has set up 7 different distribution warehouses throughout the United States. I have trained individuals in all warehouse functions. I pride myself in having a perfect attendance record, very organized and I have earned the respect of those I have trained and worked for while doing so. I am certified to run any warehouse equipment and I can pick and put away product with a scanner. I also have worked as a receiver and coordinated the shipping of product. The last warehouse we set up was located in Romeoville, IL. My wife was a CDC manager and they asked her to remain and manage this warehouse after it was completed. At that time, they also asked that I remain and continue working in the warehouse as well. While working in the Romeoville warehouse, I was also selected to be part of their traveling team that assisted other warehouses in training new employees or helping them get caught up when shipments were behind. We were just notified that the company will be downsizing and they will be closing this warehouse as a result of this.
