My training and support from Management allowed me to complete my assigned tasks each day with the confidence that I had completed my work correctly, timely, professionally. Thus, at days end, I always felt that I had served my employer, my accounts, and myself to a job well done.
My days began with planning my calls for the day. I was responsible for calling on 100+food service accounts each quarter. These accounts were located from 1 to 85 miles from my home in NC and SC. I tried to plan from 12-17 calls per week. Once I had my plan, I drove to the first account. Upon arrival, I introduced myself to the owner, manager, or person in charge to explain the purpose of my call (to perform preventive maintenance PM on the Kraft owned Beverage equipment in their business. This may be from 1-7 coffee brewers, tea brewers, hot,cold or frozen powdered beverage dispensers). I would confirm the account information on my call report, location of beverage equipment and product being used in each asset. I would then perform PM on each asset, cleaning and making repairs as needed, ordering faulty parts or requesting a service tech call as needed. I then would meet with the owner, manager, or person in charge to explain my findings and insure that they were comfortable with my visit. There were occasions when I would need to consult Kraft Customer Service Reps or my Manager for guidance or direction or further action.
Sales/Event Promoter (Former Employee) – Oakbrook, IL – 22 December 2014
This was side work, usually done during the holiday season. It was marketing in nature to promote sales. I usually worked an 8 hr shift in a retail setting, handing out samples, promoting the benefits of the product to consumers. It was fun.

Marketing/Promotions (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 28 January 2013
The number of events to work aren't many, so you really don't work much. However they give you plenty of notice for events coming up. Events vary by client, as does pay. Easy to do events, however you really run everything yourself, with a set of directions left for you. No complaints besides not many events.
Assistant Event Coordinator (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – 8 January 2013
Great place to get your start in the events industry! Traveled to over 20 different cities setting up and executing Corporate Training events. My lead was incredible and well organized and the staff are all friendly and outgoing. The pro's to the job are traveling all over the US. The con's are there isn't enough work.

Go to our locations and promote their products. Learned to market, speak, present, set up locaiton, pass out flyers. Management was awesome, always up beat, communication was key. Co workers were awesome as well. There was no hard parts, everything was fun and easy.
Product Demonstrator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – 26 July 2012
If you can get a hang of the sales part and be willing to engage people endlessly this job pays well. Beware that you will largely be operating on your own so this job requires the ability to work independently. PS management does come around and spot check to make sure your doing your job.
