Professional Summary
Demostration Lead Person Mar 2013Jun 2014 Nichols and Associates Gresham, OR
1.  Weekly - received corporate paperwork on demos we were going to be doing each week.
2.  Every week met with store secretary.  went over the demos for the week and discussed issues product stock issues and if we had a problem worked with the store,WinCo, and my employer, Nichols and Associate district manager to solve any issue.  Worked to make sure  all our part-time employees understood their demos.  When someone was not able to make in from my pool of employees I search for another person that could fill in from the Nichols and Associate pool of employees that were part-time demo personal.
3.  The carts for the demos were stocked and prepared for the next days demos.  All carts were spotless.
4. Weekly I would scan the paperwork from all the demos with notes to Nichols and Associates and made sure that every demo was signed so that the demonstrator was paid.
5.  WinCo store secretary told me many times along with other department managers that when I did the demos in their departments sales soared.  I was a top sales person in demonstration of the products and developed a huge customer base that followed me.
Product Demostrator Aug 2011Mar 2013 CrossMark Corporation Gresham, OR CrossMark Corporation hired me as a recommendation from the Demonstrator Lead at WinCo at the time.  When she left that position for a position in another state CrossMark District manager for us wanted me to take that position and I kept the position when CrossMark lost the contract and Nichols and Associates was the new marketing group for the stores.
The store was very impressed with my customer service, dependability and strong work ethic. 
There are many different personality types that we worked with in the store and customers too.  I was easy to work with and handled even the most difficult customers with grace, fairness and sense of respectfulness that was seen by management and appreciated.
AVON Independent Sales Representative Nov 2007Aug 2011 AVON Corporation Gresham , OR While still working full time at the Oregonian I started selling AVON Cosmetics.  I enjoyed this position and the customers, and other representatives with Avon.  We had a great team of AVON Representatives.
The group of representatives under me did a great job and they also enjoyed the business. 
The Salem Fair was one of the events I worked with a couple other representatives.  Working a Fair is different than a department store as it is fast paced and very few breaks.  I loved the event experience and we sold products and developed some new customers.
AVON Corporation planned a huge event in downtown Portland on the Riverfront.  I was one of the chosen to work that event.  We did make overs, sold products and made some wonderful customer connections and signed up some to sell AVON too.
Digital Color Tech./Camera Dept. Jun 1978Nov 2008 Oregonian Publishing Company Portland, OR The Oregonian Publishing Company gave me thirty plus years of opportunites to work with some of the most talented people in the business.
The last position I had was in the Camera dept.  We corrected photos, scanned photos and art work, separated colors and  created negatives, printed veloxes.
I used the Crosfield Scanner and other equipment including darkroom equipment and making negative plates of different colors that we would sent to the pressroom. 
This department gave me the opportunity to learn and do blind markup, work chemical processors and learned how to load film and add chemicals.
I build pages on grid sheets, build ads.  I learned every part of that department.
My first position at the Oregonian was as a buyer in Purchasing.  I was in charge of all office supplies, ordered office furniture, newsroom supplies including photography departments cameras, chemicals, etc.
Inventory, expense sheets and other reports I submitted.  I worked with every department and became familiar with most of the employees and the department managers. 
* The transfer from Purchasing was because of an opportunity for a huge salary increase.
*  The transfer from Composing to Camera was because the company had offered a buyout and they lost most of the employees in the Camera Department.  I was fearless for new challenges and moved to help fill the vacancy the department had.
