I've worked in multiple different jobs in different categories of work that all have given me different skills and or experiences. I've worked at a store connected to a warehouse which I learned how warehouses work and how to use most of the equipment that is used. During this job I also learned how to care for customers with their requests. This was also a physical job where lifting and movement were key to the success. This physical experience was heightened when I worked as a DOT certified truck driver for Amazon. During that job I learned how to effectively get done tasks on your own time at your own discretion because I was out on the road. This resulted in taking and following directions well and understanding how logistics works on the inside of a warehouse and outside. Finally my most recent job was a long term substitute inside of a school. This gave me the skills of taking things into my own hands, forcing myself to become comfortable in uncomfortable situations, and allowed me to connect and engage with people of all age groups successfully.
In addition was a minor in journalism and a GPA of 3.5
As a long term substitute you are responsible for any and all actions that a salary teacher has. This includes incorporating and carrying out lesson plans to students in classes. Aid students and faculty with any and all issues related to school. While also monitoring students to ensure their safety, education, and goals at all times. This also involved creating and maintaining a positive role model and mentor for students of all ages.
First was is to Locate, transfer, and load all packages into trucks inside the warehouse.
Then drive out to the route between 20 to 50 minutes away, and deliver usually from 140 to 200 stops per route. Then
drive back to the warehouse when completed, maintenance the vehicle, file closing reports, then end your day. This was how I learned how most warehouses work and the physical toll it takes.
My job duties were to mainly pull new arriving inventory from delivery trucks, break them down, and restock both the store floor and inventory in the warehouse. I also was responsible for helping any customer with questions along with maintaining the store floor and shelves.
