Problem Solving/Time Management

At each and every previous job I've had I always took it upon myself to finish my assigned work in a timely manner with accuracy and also manage my time during shifts wisely to ensure I finish what needs to be done in order for the rest of the establishment to function smoothly.

Customer Service

Since the age of 15 I've had quite a few jobs and one area in each where I seemed to excel was communicating effectively and catering to guests needs. While employed at Lunds as a Courtesy Clerk when I was just fifteen I received not only a pin to recognize my great customer service skills but also I passed a secret shopper test with 100% and was given a certificate.

Work History

Work History
Oct 2012 - Jan 2013

Sales Ambassador

Crocs Outlet Store

Cashiered throughout my shifts while making sure every customer was taken care of. Quickly learned the necessary knowledge which I would use to talk up products in order to sell them and help our store make the predetermined sales quota.

In-Shop

Jimmy John's

When I worked here I would either cashier, construct subs in a fast but delicate manner or complete cleaning tasks as required. With this high paced job, customer service experience became second nature to me because any hold ups would cause our turnout to decrease, not to mention I mainly worked the lunch rush. Although the job was fast paced and exciting, the distance from my house ended up costing me more in gas than I was actually making.

Aug 2010 - Nov 2010

Sales Associate

Spirit Halloween

A pretty decent seasonal job and not to mention pretty fun as well. Luckily it was seasonal because even though I enjoyed the work I did there, I was literally only scheduled less than 20 hours a week because of the massive amount of employees they hired which created a lot of similarly disappointed coworkers for the same reason i was.

Sep 2009 - May 2010

Cashier

ARC's Value Village

A non-profit thrift store I worked at for a little less than a year. Learned very useful time management skills that I continued to apply to my future jobs. Left because I desired something new but, I was young and to this day I regret leaving.

Mar 2009 - Jun 2009

Dietary Aid

Richfield Health Center

Worked here through a program that worked along side my alternative school to get kids jobs back a few years when it was pretty tough, sadly the program ended with the school year but I retained some good skills for future use.
