Familiar Technologies: NL Baroid Mud Engineer School Certification

To find a company needing an experienced Mud Engineer. I am a self starter, self motivated and gets the job done at the end of the day.

Dear Sirs;

I am looking for an employer that needs someone to help solve day to day problems while continuing operations and creating a team environment. Most of all I want them to know that the job will get done and they will not have to constantly look over my shoulder and rest knowing things are taken care of each and every day. Over the last 30 years I have come to terms that employment is a constant learning experience. My maturity and hands on approach from the bottom to the top has helped me achieve good working environments throughout my career. My continued education has given me extensive training in employment law, governmental compliance in federal, state and local requirements that helped reduce liability exposure in the work place. Finding a balance for the employer as well as the employee creates a good, long term, working relationship. Under my guidance, 100% of my upper management worked for me more than 15 years. I offer inventory control, product rotation combined with budget analysis and compliance to maintain a profitable business. I continually work to streamline operations, maintain proper inventory levels and expand sales ideas has become a necessity in budget control.

As owner and operations manager of BBQ Warehouse, a full service restaurant for 17 years; I expanded my experience in my family’s catering business that operated for more than 20 years. Customer service to the smallest detail was my restaurant motto. My duties consisted of maintaining records, filing all government paperwork, booking entertainment and ordering inventory from the different food and beverage suppliers. Monitored compliance with safety, sanitation and food preparation standards was our highest priority. All TV, radio and print advertising was produced and edited by myself with the help of the different media companies. Ninety percent (90%) of my employees worked in the restaurant more than 10 years showing a willingness to work together where I created a desired working environment.

As owner and operations manager of Santa Sarita Import & Export Warehouse for more than 20 years; my daily duties were to maintain daily operations for shipments to and from Mexico. Santa Sarita started as an importer of products from Mexico. The company imported 32 items for distribution in the US market to large retailers as Wal-Mart and Sams to local mom and pop stores. While leasing warehouse space, the company needs grew to it becoming feasible to purchase its own warehouse facility. With a new warehouse facility located in Weslaco, we began subleasing extra areas of the warehouse to other companies needing warehouse space. The warehouse handled approximately 30,000 truckloads of products; which were sorted, stored and transferred to major manufacturing plants in Mexico. I developed all record keeping systems within the warehouse. I had to deal with customers shipping the product, US/Mexico Customs paperwork and the end customer receiving the product. Our company motto was to be an extension of every warehouse customer. Our speciality was when a shipment had a problem, a priority was placed on the problem until the product was shipped. The company employed 810 employees locally at one time. Our customers knew we were there 24/7.

My mature and diverse management experience offers an employer a wide range of employment considerations. My deepest area of education has been the “School of Hard Knocks.” I have made many mistakes but I have also learned from each mistake. Problem solving is a necessity in daily business operations. My many years of volunteering and serving with different organizations gave me the opportunity to work with diverse operating structures. I always go above and beyond the call of duty. Not only volunteering my time, I usually worked long enough with the organizations to become President or Chairman in most cases. The two businesses (Santa Sarita Warehouse and BBQ Warehouse Restaurant) being located on the same property offered me the opportunity to move between both businesses and apply myself wherever needed at a moments notice. I enjoyed my work and I have a desire to continue it with an employer needing help in the business world today. A sign of the times requires that you not only “Think Outside The Box” but you also need to “Get Outside The Box” where you can see the real world. I offer an employer the comfort of knowing that when he or she goes home that the job will get completed, no matter what it takes. Most of all I want to work in a team environment.

Thank you in advance for considering my resume and I look forward to talking to you further if you feel I can contribute to your organization.
