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.
