Truck Driver

I drove a frozen/refrigerated 32, 48 and 53ft trailer carrying all organic and natural products to various customers. During this time I drove in the Southern California area, far north as San Luis Obispo and once a week to Las Vegas, Nevada. I made on average of 5-15 deliveries a day to stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts, Vons, small private owned stores, gas stations and other distributors that carried our products. After completing my deliveries I would then be sent for back hauls to pick up the products produced here in California back to our distribution center. I was responsible for being on time to accounts while making sure the products being delivered were in their safe temp zones. Most deliveries were made by backing into a dock and pulling pallets off and putting the pallets or product in their proper areas (freezers, coolers or staging areas). Some deliveries required the use of a lift gate and a hand truck to make deliveries in allies, streets and wherever we needed to make our deliveries. I also worked in the yard driving a yard horse moving and backing trailers into the proper doors to be loaded and unloaded. At this company we used PeopleNet software to track hours of service, miles driven and location.

Pepsi Beverage Company


At Pepsi I drove a commercial tractor with a 14 side door bay trailer with a hydraulic lift gate. I had a route in the Northwest Indiana area mostly in Illinois. I delivered pop to many different types of business and locations. On my route I delivered to schools, colleges, government buildings, water parks, sporting events, clubs, restaurants, homes, vending company's, department stores like Target, corporate accounts like Walgreens, CVS, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, gas stations and any business that sold our products. On my route I made between 15-20 deliveries a day and worked overtime on the weekends building displays and changing ads at our stores that required weekend service. I had a salesman on my route that I worked with daily selling to accounts and getting extra floor space and shelve space to increase sales. When making deliveries I would generate a pick list and pull the ordered product for that account. I would bring it in on either a hand truck or on a pallet with my electric pallet jack. I would get checked in and then rotate, fill and put away product in its proper location. I would also build displays in grocery stores and any where we could get extra sales. I won several awards for the displays I designed and built. I was even awarded Employee of the Quarter for building a 3000 case display on my day off by myself. By doing this I was able to sell in the 3000 cases to the store by working directly with the store director. He was so pleased he have me that space as a permanent display area for whatever me and my salesman chose to put there. At one point we had on display than Coke would sell there all year. By the time I left Pepsi I had about 25 pallets on display, 40 ft of aisle space and the main display area about 20X30 when you walked in. I also placed 1st in a truck driving competition our company held annually. I was also responsible for performing per and post trip inspections on a commercial motor vehicle and staying within my hours of service. I was responsible for generating accurate customer invoices and collecting cash/checks or signatures from our charge accounts. At the end of the day I would bring back all damaged, out of date and refused product back to the warehouse to verify my truck inventory and then turn in all invoices and money collected.

Averitt Express

Truck Driver

I started at Averitt as a dock worker as a forklift driver loading and unloading trailers. I would unload freight, scan to destination number and move the freight to the proper outbound trailer or stage the freight for another trailer. During this time they cross trained me to drive a tractor trailer. After getting my CDL I began working as a combo driver working the dock and doing some drop and hooks. As I became more experienced I worked the dock less and drove more. My shift was from 4pm until about 2-4 a.m. I usually did drop and hooks and various customers all around the Chicagoland area and outlying suburbs. Once or twice a week I would go to our other terminal in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and come back with a loaded trailer. I usually drove around 200-300 miles a day and did not have any accidents, injures or tickets. I worked this job all while going to college full time. I did very well there and topped out on my pay in less than a year by receiving merit raises. While working here we used Qualcomm technologies to log in bills, make and receive messages and location of equipment. Towards the end of my employment there they switched me to a shuttle driver. I did that position for 3 months before learning because I was getting married and moving out of the area. The run that I did left Burbank, Illinois at 9pm with a stop in Louisville, Kentucky. From there I would drop my trailer at our facility and take another trailer to Owensboro, Kentucky and spend the night in a hotel. The next night I would go back to Louisville then back to Burbank.


Meijer Grocery Stores

Maintenance Mechanic

I started as a bagged in the service department packing groceries and collecting shopping karts outside. I was soon promoted to the grocery department and workers there for a few months. I learned how to drive a fork lift during this time. While employed at Meijer I was working for my father's construction company on the weekends and on my days off from Meijer and days I had no school. The store director through conversation found out that I had construction experience and asked if I would work directly for him doing daily punch lists. I was promoted again to a maintenance mechanic at age 17. During this time I changed damaged floor tiles almost daily. I painted offices and installed new carpets in them as well as in the store. I changed store lighting with a movable one man lift. I was responsible for fixing damaged drywall around the store and any other damages done by customers and employees. I was responsible for the plumbing in the bathroom making sure the plumbing was working correctly and replacing valves, flushers and urinals as they broke down. I was in charge of building an outside automatic sprinkler system for the garden center that would alleviate the need for store personal to water the plants daily. I was able to come up with a system that saved the store many labor hours by not having to pay someone to stand and water plants. I soon began working with the HVAC mechanics and learning all about the refrigeration systems. I learned how to take apart store refrigeration coffins and coolers. I learned how to use the computers to put them in defrost and de-ice them to get them in working order. I also learned how to change out burned out fan motors and maintain the aisle cooling systems. During my employment here I painted the entire back room and painted many murals in each department area. I built a brand new office and hired sub contractors for the things I wasn't licensed to do. After seeing my progress and experience the store director began sending me to other stores to help other store directors. The head maintenance supervisor also requested to use me on overnight installs when they converted their dairy sections from air walls to glass doors. I was used to build a wood framed security cage that was 20X15X10 to store damaged and high value merchandise that was being stolen by store employees. After building this cage the back room shrink dropped considerably. I was then asked to cross train as a department manager in the Health and Beauty section. I did very well and worked well with the 4 employees in my department. Our out of stocks began to get better and the employees were getting more done while I was in that department.
