Wegmans Food Markets
I work as a product selector in one of the only two Wegmans distribution centers in the country. In this role, I work both individually and in a team (depending on the situation) to ensure that product orders from Wegmans grocery stores are fully met with as few damaged products as possible. In doing this, my duties can range from operating heavy machinery, validating the cargo on shipment trailers, solving database and warehouse discrepancies, and identifying potential safety hazards within the warehouse.
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
For the summer of 2016, I was hired as a seasonal employee for one of PENNDOT’s road crews. The bulk of this work involved working in a team to accomplish goals that revolved around repairing and maintaining PA state highways. Job functions here could have ranged anywhere from blacktop repair, road chipping, overgrowth removal, pipe repair, and traffic control. Towards the end of the shift, records would need to made for the activities of the day, including materials used, equipment damaged, and progress made towards the goal. Many times I was given this assignment, which involved working with both Word and Excel. These records were then preserved by the state for later use.
Lowe’s Home Improvement
In my time at Lowe’s, I worked as a sales associate at their retail location in Pottsville, PA. Here I developed stronger customer service skills by helping customers find the products they needed, made recommendations based on how I interpreted their needs, and directed them to experts when they needed assistance that was beyond my scope of knowledge. I also worked at the customer service desk and helped to resolve any issues customers may have had with a purchase they made.
