I quickly searched for a job, and soon landed one at Covidien (which has recently merged with Medtronic). Covidien, a factory-based medical device manufacturer, became my first job. In the light of my new position, I was faced with many challenges. First, Covidien required labor-intensive work, work that I had never experienced before, work that nearly broke me my first week. Second, at that time Covidien only required tenders for their 12-hour night crew, working 36 hours one week and 48 hours the next. The third and most painstaking task I decided to face was to balance a
I graduated high school back in 1994. I was engaged to be married in just two years, and even though I joined the Pennsylvania Air National Guard right after graduation it was only one weekend a month and two weeks out of the year. So I needed a full-time job. A friend of the family knew a guy who was opening a second store, and was going to need a store manager. I took the job and got started.

Throughout my lifetime thus far, I have had 5 different careers. My first job was when I was 16 years old, where I worked as a cashier and stocker at the 99 Cents Only store. I had been promoted from a stocker to cashier within a couple months and ended up leaving the company a year later. When I was 17, my mother bought her first house after the divorce in the city of Surprise, Arizona. Working at the 99 Cents Only store would be to far for me to travel, so I found another job at Quiznos Subs. I ended up working as a cashier, but quickly moved up to a shift leader and assistant to the store owner. I was in charge of ordering supplies and counting down the register at night, while making deposits at the bank. I ended up working for Quiznos Subs until 2005, when I

Working for Morgan Stanley I was the youngest cashier they ever had which presented several challenges for me which included being confronted about my age, comprehension and experience. I pride myself on being able to not only operate professionally and gracefully with difficult co-workers but through my actions and discipline I upheld the highest standards of transparency which in turn earned their respect. Another past experience would be the time I spent as a Shift Supervisor at Starbucks. In this position I was responsible for consistent customer service provided by all employees, recognition of employee’s achievements and overall shift success. Throughout my time I also took advantage of every opportunity I could and became a certified Barista, Learning Coach (Trainer) and Coffee
When the opportunity for a job at State Farm came about I was a little apprehensive about taking it because it was not a normal teenage job and I was unsure whether I was the right fit.

I have now been working there several years and have learned many important skills needed to run a business.

It was in the early spring of 2014 and I was having a blast working for Hercules Tire in Compton, a subsidiary of Cooper Tire. I mean this place was a dream job, the salary was great, the health benefits were amazing, and the 401K was fully vested from the moment you started working there, and I was on my way to becoming a sales executive and maybe even VP of Sales. Our sales team was great and I really enjoyed working with them. Until the dreaded and awful day came where the very same company that I had left to go to Hercules Tire, was in the process of buying us out. At the time I was attending Business-17 here at El Camino and was halfway through the course. I was so confused about what I was going to do next, that I decided to confide
