My duties as a technician were to install and service all materials related to commercial garage doors and dock equipment. Some related products with which I had to be familiar were fire doors that are designed to close in the presence of heat or smoke or if an alarm goes off and security gates that guard storefronts in malls. All this work required the use of many types of heavy power tools and involved welding. I most often used a stick welder but, I have some experience with wire welders. Almost every job done required some welding and fabrication. We regularly had to work at great heights or under hazardous conditions. I was a lead technician for five years until I was promoted to manager.
As installation and service manager for the commercial division my duties included scheduling the work for the crews, ordering, receiving, and warehousing of all parts, tools, supplies, customer orders, factory shipments, and customer returns. I answered all phone calls regarding the need for service work and regarding any contracted installation work. This involved dealing directly with jobsite supervisors or factory owners. I did all the paperwork involving billing for service and I was responsible for the progress of large contract jobs for the purpose of billing. I had from six to eight two-man crews at any one time to keep productive. I was responsible for all the payroll paperwork also. After I was promoted to end-user salesman I continued to function as the service manager for three months while they had no one to replace me.
As End-User Salesman my job was to find work for our company at existing facilities. I made calls to all types of businesses to sell service work on their dock levelers or testing of their fire doors or replacement of their old, worn out, or damaged garage doors. I held this job for seven months all included. I was let go when Wayne-Dalton closed our commercial division and become a strictly residential location.

I continued to perform the same duties as the Run-In Tech after being hired as a full time employee. While at this position our line set production records that far surpassed any before. During this time I was also involved as a member of the plant Safety Committee. Due to large cutbacks of personnel, I eventually was responsible for more and more duties on our line.

Oct 2005 to May 2006 I held the position of District Manager with the Durham Herald. My duties consisted of recruiting, training and placing carriers on delivery routes. I was responsible for all the activities of the carriers in my district and all of the customer service. I was also required to perform the delivery of routes without a carrier. Part of the customer service involves meeting with customers with problems and redelivery of customers that are missed. This job was seven days a week and started at 2:00 AM.

In my 8.5 yrs. with Southern I did parts picking for a year before being given the task of building the supply room. They call it the IME room. I did all the ordering, storing, distributing, and accounting for all the supplies used at the facility. I was also responsible for all the paints, chemicals, oil, solvents, etc. At the same time, this is when I also became responsible for all the waste at the facility. This involved maintaining all the waste collection sites and shipping the waste out periodically. At the same time I managed and supplied the tools used by the techs. These duties were all done while keeping all the supply shelves and cabinets full. I had this post for three years. I then began working on the containers for the CFM line. I started, here, to also be responsible for the floor maintenance and the floor machines. When I maintained them, they functioned smoothly and were stocked with the proper supplies. I also began to work on the doors in the facility. My years of experience in the business and my personal familiarity with the equipment on site, allowed GE EHS to permit me to do the PM's and the repairs when need. I continued my waste management duties also and became Southern Industrial's representative the Star safety council. I took over for Mitchell Maynard. I went to the regional meetings and did presentations at the convention. I worked closely with the Southern safety rep in the drive to renew the Star that year. I did PM's and repairs on the BEW parts washers (we had four at the time) for about a year. I did these things and others until the contract went over to Mundy.
I have used, in these years at GE, all the skills I learned over the years of door work and maintenance. I can trouble-shoot control wiring issues and diagnose problems with most machinery. Organizational and Inventory control skills were also used Mundy Companies

As an employee of Mundy at the GEAE facility and I was responsible for the maintenance of all rolling doors, high speed fabric doors, personal pass doors, and dock equipment (levelers, truck dock locks, etc.)In the past I have been responsible for shipping container maintenance, dolly maintenance, and warehouse crew. I also continued a duty of eight years as the person responsible for all Haz and Non-Haz waste removal and transportation. For this I periodically was sent to class to be certified to ship Hazardous Waste.
Skills - skills I used every day are mechanical knowledge, use of control wiring, including trouble-shooting of mechanisms most associated with doors.
