Fluence Bioengineering, LED Technician: July 2014-April 2016
As an LED Technician with Fluence Bioengineering I worked in an assembly line system to product LED Light fixtures for use in the aquarium and horticulture industries. I was required to exhibit great attention to detail, making sure every light is finished off correctly and neatly in order to be sent out to our customers, who custom ordered them. I also assisted in the process of shipping and logistics, ensuring that our customers received their product in a timely manner, safely packed and shipped reliably. In addition to these, I often created print material for Fluence Bioengineering to use, including instructions to go with their various products.
Petsmart, Cashier/Customer Engagement Officer, then Pet Care Associate: May 2009-August 2014
As a cashier I worked on the register, checking out customers’ items and conducting returns. As Customer Engagement Officer I spent a lot of energy focusing on customer service and satisfaction, and assisted customers in finding the appropriate item for their personal needs. In 2010 I became a Pet Care Associate, where I cared for animals in store. My job also entailed feeding, medicating, and selling fish, birds, small animals, and reptiles. I sold animals and supplies to customers, giving them advice and educating them on products and how to best care for their pets.
