Ada County Residential Lead Driver

Allied Waste/Republic Services Inc.

As the Lead Driver for the County system, I have learned many different ways to "finess" the customer.  I havehelped my supervisor with many problems that have risen on either the part of the driver, or the customer.  My knowledge of maintaining routes and customer feedback has greatly increased over the past three years.  I have built a good rapport with everyone that I work with, not only in this system, but in others as well. 

Aug 2006 - Nov 2007


As a Floater in the County Residential System, I helped make sure all routes were done in a timely manner with the best efficiency.  I recieved a chance to learn all of the routes as well as work with every one in out system.  I was supplied with the training necessary to run all of the equipment that is used everyday in the residential systems.

Driver-Residential F.E.L.-Eagle

As a residential F.E.L. driver I maintained a one man route with an excellent record.  I experienced one on one customer service with many people along my route.  I built an excellent rapport with almost every one that I encountered along the way.  I made sure that all areas were left as clean as possible to help ensure my customer service was the best.

Store Manager

Mr. Formal

Maintained a satisfactory work environment for five employees and myself.  Managed all cash flow in and out of the store.  While working at Mr. Formal, I was responsible for making sure individuals looked there best for their wedding days, proms, quinceneras, and many other occasions.  I was responsible for the ordering and recieving of hundreds of items coming in from our main office in Portland, Oregon.  While employed with Mr. Formal, I got to take part in customer satisfaction and relief of pressure.


I would like to be given a chance to show how my management and knowledge skills have improven over the last few years.  And to be given a chance to further my knowledge of an ever growing company for the years to come would be greatly appreciated.
