I am excellent at keeping written information about my assignments and projects. I meet all company standards for attendance and punctuality. I have a calm personality to keep an even attitude. When a major problem arises, I use creative problem solving to look at different sides of an issue.I am clearly good at communication as evidenced by my effectiveness in resolving problems. I like to build trust with my team by being a positive force on the team, congratulating high performers on successes, and working with those that need assistance to improve.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 2, 2015
handled the daily shipping and receiving tasks. Drove a sit down counterbalance forklift with 6 foot forks. Handled approximately 600 sku's. Most enjoyable part of the day would be the fact that i worked by myself and the pace that i worked at optimized my productivity. hardest part of the job was catching the constant errors made on the pick slips by the sales rep and having to halt productivity to have her properly adjust the orders so that way inventory was correct.
perfect hours, no weekend overtime, great benefits
extremely intolerant coworkers, warehouse was not osha safe
Director Environmental Affairs (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, Utah – March 4, 2015
Laird Plastics is the largest independent plastics distributor in North America, with over 60 service centers throughout the US and Canada. The business distributes a full line of semi-finished and finished products as a key market channel for many of the world’s largest plastic manufactures. In addition, Laird is the only distributor with a business unit solely dedicated to plastic recycling and sustainable supply chain management (LP R∙E∙C).
As the creative force behind LP REC I was able to convey an important customer concern to leadership, and have that concept translated into a profitable, stand alone business. The Environmental Division helped differentiate Laird Plastics in the marketplace, and transformed the brand image. Challenges were many, as we serviced hundreds of customers throughout North America, but the reward and progress far outweighed any hardship.
When I worked there, I had to be there early. I was working on a specific project so I had to peel and then assemble the pieces to the part. After a certain number of pieces, I would put them in a box, seal and label it for shipment. The work area was a little noisy as it was with the cutting machines in the back. All of the warehouse guys are very friendly. The hardest part of the job was doing it alone with a deadline. You had to push yourself to get them done. Also, the plastic could be sharp at times, so you have to be careful that you don't cut yourself on it. The most enjoyable part is being able to jam out to your own music while just keeping on going after you find a pace and system that works.
