From my first job to my current job, all of my jobs have helped me become the person I am today. I have had good jobs and I have had bad jobs, and I have been able to see a lot of different industries and different aspects of large business and smaller ones.

I worked at Ruby’s up until my senior year of college and transferred from the Wentzville location to the Columbia location when I was in school. I had two managers at the Wentzville location in my 5 years there. My first manager was very Laissez faire and really did not give any employees any guidance. He was let go for his bad management style, and Matt my second manager came in. Matt was a great management, he was very democratic and let the employees say their opinions.

Norine rarely go involved with my customer, she was definitely a Macro manager, in part because she did not have the time to be a micro manager. Norine had an open door policy, I knew I could go to her for anything whether it was a system issue, a customer issue, or a personal issue- Norine would help me through it. She is encouraging me to go learn new things and branch out to grow my career within Bunge. I have really enjoyed working under Norine for the last year of my career at
