I currently have work, but I am looking for something closer to home. I built custom furniture, managed a crew of 70 people at Texas Instruments, worked in an extremely fast paced warehouse, directed short films and written screenplays, I have driven forklifts of ALL TYPES. did Data Entry on Microsoft Excel spread sheets, maintained inventory in good standing condition, have operated large presses, been a kitchen supervisor in my early teens. I am looking for an independent Owner (I cannot stress this enough) who has an upstart company, wants to GROW and needs a good solid worker beside him who can multi task crazy work assignments and is reliable and dependable. I have reliable transportation. But if truck is required, Hire me and I will purchase a pick up truck.
I have a resume I can send you on PDF, just ask. I will only accept a job where I can look the Owner in the eyes and shake his hand if he hires me. I used to insert my phone number, but to many SCAMS presented themselves, and I wish to dissolve that form of communication. Please write me, and I will send you my phone number and resume.
I WILL IGNORE YOU IF YOU CANNOT PRESENT YOURSELF IN PERSON AND SHOW YOU ARE A LEGITIMATE COMPANY WITH PHYSICAL ADDRESS.

UPDATE: Funny thing happened today in searching for employment. A man at this company wanted to know if I had experience with forklifts.
I said yes. I have operated Truck Forklifts, Cherry Pickers and Reach Forklifts.
Then he said well, have you ever dealt with granite slabs?
I said yes, I picked them up from the warehouse before. I designed on them, cut them and installed them as signs.
Then he said, well, I am referring to forklifts that lift several slabs of granite at once, they are very heavy. And you go into the trucks and pull out the granite slabs.
I said Yes, I used to pull out pallets filled with metals of iron bolts and nuts... the kind you use on bridges that can weigh thousands of pounds. But thank God I'm not the one lifting it, the forklift is lifting it. Which I hope you don't lift your own granite slabs with your bare arms.
Then he said, No, no we don't. We need someone experienced that has operated a forklift that has these claws that can lift several slabs of granite.
Then I said, Yes well, basically the same operations and functions of a forklift ARE THE SAME. I have seen these forklifts with claws because they use them at General Electric warehouse. Now, as I said forklifts primarily have the same functions. The only difference is, some have forks and some have claws. But they all have the same function, they lift the merchandise and lower the merchandise. You can shift the merchandise from side to side, tilt it up and tilt it down, drive forward and drive in reverse.
My thought and reasoning about this whole discussion was I WISH, corporate companies would hire employees that could use some good ole basic COMMON SENSE on how things work, instead of text book people. I wanted to use my hands and gesture two claws grabbing something like lifting and lowering, and then make my hands in the form of two forks lifting and lowering.
His explanation was ridiculous to say the least and the experience the person should possess is not, can they lift many slabs of granite, BUT, can they operate a forklift. Because God help the person that has to left several slabs of granite with his BARE HANDS.
