 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Before I retired from the navy, I swore I would stay away from any type of Military work for at least 10 years. I made it, plus one I think. Ha! Went to work before I was completely on the retirement list for a company called PTC Aerospace, later changed to Aircraft Products Co. Started as an Expeditor and Moved to Production Supervisor in less than a year. Main product of the Co. was building Aircraft Galleys, Military and Civilian. I stayed there 5 years, ran the Night Shift for 3 of those years. I got caught in a manpower reduction lay-off and moved on to an Inventory Service as Southeastern District Marketing Manager in training for Southeastern District Supervisor. I left them after either 8 or 9 months. They wanted me to move to Virginia Beach and take over Training & Scheduling for the Co. I had to say no to going back to that area of the country -- so, we parted ways. I moved immediately to the Di-Centenial (I think)Census Bureau, Data Entry Div., in Jacksonville & stayed with them until they finished up, about 8 months. I started working with Gibson Greetings, Inc. about a month before I was completely through with the "Senseless Bureau," as the Jacksonville Division Distribution Manager. I handled distribution of Greeting cards and all the ancillary products involved for all the Winn-Dixie Stores in the Jacksonville Division, a few in the SC Div. of W/D & later added 20 stores from the Montgomery, AL, div of W/D. I had a warehouse in Jacksonville and had to add a small one in Tallahassee, which I later had to change over to a larger warehouse. I have to say the job had it's fun times along with it's hard times. I was picked to open and train all the personnel for the Tampa, Div. of Winn-Dixie's, while still running my own Div. Then, one of my old driver's that had left and went to Contractor work on the base finally convinced me to put in an application for the company he was working for. And, here I still am 11 years later. I guess I like it. I've worked my way from Equipment Specialist through Data Entry Technician to Warehouse Floor Supervisor to Operations Manager. Having the Associates Degree didn't hurt, I guess. And, if I had pushed myself a little harder and finished about 9 more credit hours I might've gotten the big bucks but, that just isn't what I wanted.  I either shine for what I do and rise to what ever level I am capable or I do the best where I am at 'til I decide to leave.
