Andrew Lacina

Summary

Hello, I am Andrew Lacina.  Through out high school I have made multiple jobs in different lines of work.  I have been a ranch hand, which included upkeep of the fences on the ranch, maintenance of tractors and equipment.  It also included keeping an eye out over the cattle and buying and selling cattle.  I have also worked in construction.  I was taught how to basically build a house from using a transit to level a foundation to putting up the framework of the house its self.  This job taught me alot about self discipline.  It took my work to a whole new level.  My boss let me complete tasks by myself.  This taught me the valuable tool of troubleshooting.  I have also worked in two businesses that involve talking to customers and sales.  The first, Waterflow Inc., is a irrigation/plant nursery.  This job opened me up into a field which I was completely unfamiliar with. But, after i worked there i had a good sense of what plant was what, how to completely install residential irrigation systems, and how to communicate with people. The second job, K & K, is a retail trailer parts shop.  My knowledge of tools came into effect when i was working with the ranch and for the construction company, so i came in one step ahead of the game when it came to installing parts under trailers and in trucks.  A new technique I picked up was wiring a trailer.  I also became good at making sales at this company.  I enjoy talking to people face to face or on the phone in order to make a sale and make someone happy.  I can personally say that this job has helped me become confident in myself in making sales to an individual or company.  You are able to learn how other people run their business and become friends with people through sales.  Thank you for taking the time to read this.  I hope my different jobs have appealed to you for things you are looking for in a employee.

If you can put it on a trailer or a truck, we can get it and install.
