    My first employer was the US Coast Guard as a Damage Controlman. This entailed plumbing, carpentry, shipboard firefighting, chemical biological warfare and environmental protection. My job had me out in the field but I also did a lot of record keeping and imputing data into the computer. For the last 6 years I have worked for a company called PK Safety Supply. I wore many hats and did many jobs. I was customer service which entailed answering phone calls, order impute, estimates, researching for customer applications, walk-ins. I also learned the accounting aspect as far as billing customers and imputing invoices from vendors. I learned the shipping and receiving so I could receive shipments and ship orders out. I also helped with the 3 web sites that PK Safety had. I added item description, updated prices, added new item pages with the pictures, prices, detailed descriptions and any file or instruction manual relevant to the item. Last but not least I was also the gas monitor repair technician for the company. I repaired gas monitors that came in. I replaced pumps, sensors, batteries, and screens and calibrated the instruments.  less
