Assistant to Supervisor, Pueblo Longbay (Current Employee) – Charlotte Amalie, VI – August 8, 2015
Working for Frenchtown Deli & Coffee Shop was a good experience for me. I was introduced to lovely co-workers that turned into friends. Typical day was answering the phones and taking customers orders. I learned how to make a coffee, espresso, do salads and sandwiches. Cut and weighed meat and cheese products. Hardest part of the job was making sure I got the customer orders right and I enjoyed very bit of it
1st Grade Sunday School Teacher (Former Employee) – Freeport, IL – May 18, 2015
I would start class by having the students all say a prayer. Then we would read a chapter assigned for the week. One by one I would have each student read a paragraph in the chapter. I would lead a class discussion about the chapter. Then I would have the students work on an activity or craft related to that specific chapter.
Get to learn the deciplines of every aspect of construction.
Energy Inspector / Plan Reviewer (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, VI – March 19, 2015
I perform inspections on photovoltaic (PV) systems on residential & commercial properties. I will first make contact with the vendor, then they will take me to the site. Immediately I will go on the roofs to make sure the solar panels are secured correctly. Verify there are no expose wires, access to every panel, and there are sufficient slopes in them. Next I will check the inverters; (verifying the AC & DC). Base on my inspection I will say if it pass or fail. The hardest part of the job is know your life is at risk every time I perform the inspection. Truthfully I really don't like heights but its part of the job.
I get to work under minmum supervision.
Safety is an issue. Going on roofs; my life is at risk for every inspection.

Immigration Inspector, USCBP (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 9, 2015
Very high paced with a high volume and variety of tasks required. What I enjoyed the most was the opportunity to assist visitors, returning aliens, and US citizens providing an excellent customer service experience while upholding and enforcing the laws of the United States.
Messenger/Office Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Thomas – January 16, 2015
Working on St. Thomas at Kelvin's Taxi Service I interacted with the tourist on a daily basis telling them about the Virgin Islands and coordinating different sightseeing tours.
Working at Merchant Market, I learned to read and pull orders for delivery to the different stores/restaurants. I was a delivery helper who enjoyed interacting with my fellows co-workers on a daily basis.
Organist/Pianist/Choir Director (Current Employee) – Brandon, VT – October 30, 2014

My responsibilities is to review the weekly bulletins forward over the internet from the Rector, then to practice and prepare for Sunday worship and mass. I, also, am organist for funerals of parishioners.

Environmental Assessor (Current Employee) – Dept. of Planning & Natural Resources – June 13, 2014
My day includes conducting site inspections at small businesses where I provide technical assistance and audits to their standard operating processes. I have learned about the impact of bad management practices in certain industries and the adverse effects they have on the environment. Management has failed to provide the necessary and required trainings to ensure that employees are adequately equipped with the right tools to do their jobs. My coworkers have been nothing short of amazing. We pool together to share knowledge and support to each other to achieve the Division's goal. Doing a job with minimal formal training. Working with people who are not afraid to share their knowledge and experiences with other people.
Meeting people, doing community outreach, making presentations to the public, helping business owners to come into compliance with the applicable environmental laws
lack of continuous trainings and certifications, lack of appreciation by management
A typical day of work I would have to say is just another learning experience. In all, I have learned how to deal with people when it comes to attempting to sell company products, I have also learned the true meaning of patience and I must say I learned alot about myself and the sales position on a whole. Management were stiff at making sure things went smooth on a day-to-day basis. My co-workers took some time to understand but once I did I was able to accommodate them as well as help customers while working as a team or individually. The hardest part of the job for me would be managing time to make both employers and the customers happy. Sometiimes at work it was so fast-paced that you just wouldn't know what to do and when to do it. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you gave satisfactory customer service to customers in need and seeing the smile on their face and knowing that they will come back looking for you as a result.
Learning about different hardware and house building/renovating materials
