Oct 1999 – Current
Allsups convenience Stores, Clovis NM
I have worked on several main program groups: GAS(selling buying hauling), some banking, revamping much of the Marketing's UPC department(price book modernization). I built a PO/REQ system that was used for several years. I have done alot of IFS processing including a stand alone program called ASENDC that is the standard now used to send CSV files created from reports to client IFS share folders. I have been exposed to Infinium which is based on RPGLE (creating custom mods). As a part of a two-man team, I have converted the GL from fiscal based to calendar based system. (no one has done that before in Infinium or so I am told).
I have built several SFTP processes for outside vendors as in sending paystubs to an online service. I even built an AS400 email processor for emailing reports to clients in the building based on SPOOLMAIL prg.
I have done a little C# and was lastly playing with XML and LINQ stuff. The biggest C# project was a Time Clock process for our trainers in the field to track the trainees time and report their hours to payroll with a batch process loading said time to the 400.
The majority of my work here has been development for the systems listed above or rewriting old inflexible programs. I feel that we are about 10+ years behind in tech and have been restricted to what we use, but I make “easy to use” programs that are well documented.

I worked various contracts. I believe Robert half sent me to a food distributor Zanios Foods to teach the users how Query worked. I also did some free lance to upgrade phone software remoting into Seattle Washington. I was adjusting the YEAR in affected programs for the infamous Y2K .
