Skills & Abilities

MANAGEMENT

I learned many valuable skills during my internships at Consol Energy INC, Cleveland Cliffs Inc., Vulcan Materials, and my full-time positions by watching and paying close attention to supervisors that I followed. I closely shadowed front line supervisors and observed their interactions with their subordinates. Also, in my past and present fulltime jobs, I have been managed under very different managing styles. I have seen first-hand what techniques have been effective and not so effective. Through these experiences, I feel I could be a successful management position if applicable.

SALES

The sales position I fulfilled was not a traditional type sales position. I was responsible for communicating between the salesman and the customer, travelling to various jobsites to see how the customer liked our product or if there was anything else they would need, I would then communicate those needs to the sales person or manager and they would get in touch with the customer to fix the issues.

COMMUNICATION

I had a college professor that was a big proponent of developing presentation skills. We had a project every few weeks and after it was completed I would have to give a presentation on how the experiment went, whether good or bad. I learned a great deal on the skill of giving presentations in that class that I have used ever since. I also did very well in my speech/debate class in college. We would have to give speeches to the entire class once a week on random topics given to us by the professor.

Experience

FIELD SPECIALIST SCHLUMBERGER NOVEMBER 2017 TO PRESENT

I was approached by this company, after being out of the industry for a couple years, to fill a role that I was trying to reach before being laid off. They made a good offer and I know this is a good company to work for and learn from. I am a front-line supervisor of a wireline crew. I handle day to day operations of my crew and make sure they have the supply’s they need. I run the wireline unit day to day as well. Although new to this position I have a background in this type of work with good experience from good managers and company training. I am looking to further my professional self and learn as much about how the day to day completions processes happen and are carried out.

OWNER COLLINS LAWN AND LANDSCAPE LLC APRIL 2016 TO PRESENT

I am the sole owner and laborer, as of now, for my startup company. I have been doing lawn care and landscaping my entire life as side jobs for family and close community members. I have been working in industries that have been failing recently and was getting laid off from work too often, so I decided to start up this company. This gave me control over securing work for myself instead of relying on a company or market conditions to do it for me.

FIELD TECHNICIAN KSW ENVIRONMENTAL JUNE 2015 TO FEBRUARY 2016

I was a field worker that operates a 45k cfm vacuum unit. During the hydraulic fracturing of an oil and gas well they use sand in order to hold open the small fractures that are created in the formation. The sand is stored in a type of silo system while the site is running. The sand is very fine and when the sand is being moved it creates a massive amount of dust. OSHA has regulations on the amount of dust that can be dispersed into the air. This system is designed to control that dust. This job is to keep the dust cleaned out of the unit and make sure the hoses that are placed on the sand moving system are in the optimal place.

FIELD OPERATOR ALLIED HORIZONTAL WIRELINE SERVICES SEPTEMBER 2012 TO FEBURARY 2015

I was a field worker on oil and gas well sites during the hydraulic fracturing process. In this position, I was very hands-on, in that I built, checked, and rechecked all the components that I was using during the operation. Wireline is a process that perforates the well casing so that the fluids that are used during fracturing can escape the well and enter the rock formation. High explosives were used in order for this to happen, so we had to be very detailed about how and what we were doing every second of the process. Shape charges, detonator cord, detonators and power charges are the explosives I handled on a day to day basis. The components that were used were all electrically based. I was constantly checking the insulation and continuity of every component. The explosives and electrical components were used to build a “gun”, which was a sort of controlled pipe bomb. It was controlled by a computer in a mobile electrical line truck that had approximately 16-30,000 feet of electrical line on a drum. The line would be used to stay in contact with the “gun” while it was being pushed down the well. Once the “gun” was at the proper depth, the shot firer would set the “gun” off. The control of the “bomb” is in the shape charges. They are a release of energy focused at a certain point. The point it was focused on would in turn perforate the casing and go a certain distance into the formation. This process was repeated 100’s of times per well site.

SALES/FIELD HAND BLUE DOT ENERGY SERVICES JANUARY 2012 TO SEPTEMBER 2012

I was originally hired as a sales person, but after a while I was used to fill a need in the field. The sales experience is highlighted in the SALES portion of the first page. As a field worker, I would check and run zone isolation plugs. The plug was used at the bottom of a “gun”, as stated above, to isolate each fracture zone. Before the plug was put into use, I would visually and mechanically inspect the plug for defects in the manufacturing process. During the operation, I was in direct contact with the company representative and the wireline crew to make sure all the guidelines were followed to ensure the plug was set properly. I would monitor the speed at which the “gun” was being pushed down the well and the pressures of the well to ensure the integrity of the plug was not damaged.

INDUSTRIAL ENGINEER CONSOL ENERGY INC. JANUARY 2011 TO AUGUST 2011

The industrial engineering department did time and motion studies that were completed at management’s request, a sort of an internal affairs so to speak. The main propose of this position was to go into the mine in a particular section the management wanted to be studied and watch the workers perform their duties. I would document all the aspects of the job being performed and how much time it was taking to complete the task. I would also document if problems elsewhere in the mine were slowing down the studied workers as well as any problems they would come across directly. After the studies were done, a report was written explaining all the information gathered and then turned into my supervisor. He would advise of corrections, if needed, and then send it off to the mine superintendent or the upper manager who requested the study to be completed. Most studies were completed on continuous mining sections to show the mining crews efficiencies or deficiencies.
