Be a positive leader- from personal expieience,I feel it's very important that your Supervisor gives the impression that he or she cares about whats happening,wheather it's job related or something going on in your personal life
Follow through with Co-workers concerns- When someone comes to me with a problem,I will try to get it resolved as soon as possible. I may have to prioritize the situation, even if I can't resolve it right away, I will at least let them know I'm still addressing their concern.
Try to get to know my co-workers more personaly- Being an Introvert,its easy to just say hi to the employee and continue on my way.I know that with the Supervisor position its important that the other employees feel positively towards you.I believe you have to be a leader for them, but also be prepared to be their friend and at times their parent.I can do that
Work with Customers- As a driver it seems as if we are out there alone at times.When the customer has a complaint,problem or concern, if we can, we deal with it .I enjoy the problem solving part of my job.
I am proud to work for West Central Sanitation.
I feel that my life experience will help me be a good Supervisor.
I enjoy my job.
I have been a Highly depenable employee.
I have a strong work ethic.
I am dedicated to bettering the company.
I feel I have a lot more to offer the company than just driving a Roll-off truck.
I look forward to being a team player,helping others and getting things done.
