Michael Covone

Los Angeles, CA, USA


To best summerise myself in a short concise few sentences would be ; my greatest attribute is a fast learner with a keen attention to detail. I am very adept at fitting in and working closely with other co employee's. Highly motavated in the right situation. All I ever really needed was a chance to show my work ethic, the pride I take in my work without ego! I do not need a pat on the back. I work very well with other and consider myself the intimate team player. I volunteered on a few ocastions to punch out and punch right back in so as not to incur the company overtime as a very critical job had to be shipped the next mourning. Everyone was searching their heads trying to think of what to tell the customer as at that time I was working 12 hour shifts. I said how about I punch out and punch back in and shoot the coating run? To my surprise management were bewildered and amazed I even suggested it. The fact was it was a one time deal and I consider myself the ultimate "team " player.
