Mobile Supervisor 350/450
Vetco Animal Hospitals
I supervised, trained,hired, fired, and worked with up to 22 employees running vaccine clinics throughout southern CA, from San Louis Obispo all the way down towards San Diego covering evey Petco store. I made the schedule, checked paperwork, handled deposits which averaged 15-20,000$ a night, corrected errors, and worked very hard to attain permission for an employee of the month program to boost morale. I managed 2 branches, Huntington Beach(350) and Montebello(450). I started at the bottom and moved up to supervisor within four months due to two reasons, position opening and my ability to listen and follow instructions.
2000 - 2001
Worked in all the mines in northern MN and Potlatch, Cook and Cloquet, Certianteed, msp, and BNSF in a few locations in Wisconsin. Set up and operated industrial vacuum trucks while supervising the safety of workers on site. I really liked the job but the company went under. I am the person in the Minntac safety video demonstrating the proper use and safe operation techniques involved with industrial vacuuming.
