Attn: Alarm Guard ADT

Please acknowledge that I am enthusiastically applying for a full time Alarm Guard position

I have previously spent many years in the service industry which I enjoyed immensely.

The company that I gleefully worked for over 22 years were producers of fine chocolates (wholesale and retail) with over 25 handmade varieties. It was done on an assembly line with over 10 dedicated staff who each were delegated different tasks to successfully complete the finalized process. I originally started as a basic food assembly line worker and eventually graduated to shift co-supervisor for one of the shifts. I was exposed to and was trained well regarding all aspects of running a small but vibrant business including also the daily cleaning of the facility which took about a quarter of the shift activity. We had to maintain high standards to keep the area clean and sterile using various methods.

I also spent the last 8+ years in the security industry and 3+ several years in a hospital environment, primarily doing customer service.

I have always demonstrated passion and empathy, while maintaining appropriate professional boundaries in working with co-workers of diverse racial cultures. Being very successful in identifying priorities and working towards goals, my strengths include excellent organizational and time management skills while completing duties competently in a demanding environment. I am a genuine responsible individual that politely and happily takes direction well.

I look forward to meeting with you to further discuss my qualifications and how they match your needs.
