I was responsible for...
I was the Suite Captain of the North Pod at Jack Trice Stadium. I oversaw all financial transaction during the game. I supervised Suite Attendants to make sure their suites were clean and properly set up before the gates opened. I relayed any missing thing to my immediate supervisor. I made sure all suites had inventory done at the end of the night and entered any restocks into the computer and charged them with the card on file. I did inventory of the pod at the end of every game

I accomplished...
Having the best pod during the season. We were short staffed but I always kept the pod in a good environment which transferred over into my people working harder. Also the runners I got all said they liked my pod the most out of the 3 others

I learned...
That in order to be successful you need to have a good attitude at work and not be afraid to lend a hand when you need to.

Advice for others...
Not matter what you do at your job, be sure to try and have some fun!
