Skills

Communication

I am an attentive listener and can perform most written or orally directed tasks, I will always ask questions if I don't fully understand what needs to be done and how. I can effectively convey training and information to others as well.

Problem Solving

This is my strongest suit, using the resources on hand, I come up with solutions to problems that present themselves throughout the work week. Also preventing things from going wrong by learning from experience and having a good general awareness of my surroundings and of the equipment needed to perform a job well.

Adaptability

As my summary suggests, I have done many different jobs in the past, I feel I've excelled at all of them. I enjoy learning new things and hope to get a diverse position with an interesting company. I am also looking for a position with advancement as a possible reward for hard work and dedication.

Time Management

I am quite good at multitasking and having a lot going on around me. I feel that I can do twice the work of some people I have worked alongside and keep up with most seasoned employees.

Collaboration

I enjoy working with others and developing a rapport with coworkers. I am good at training others once I know all that a job requires.

Work Ethic

I am a hard worker and do not require much instruction or supervision. I like challenging work that pushes me to use my experience and use the skills I have learned to do the best job possible. My work is a point of pride for me and I always do the best work that I safely can.

Working Under Pressure /Deadlines

I have had many jobs that require deadlines to be met and I always try to work as a team with everyone on the floor to meet time frames and goals. I have rarely missed a reasonable deadline with a team of coworkers. When me or my team have missed a deadline I've gone the the extra distance to make up for lost time (machine breakdowns, shipping problems etc.)
