"In the last year I have never called in sick. I've taken minimal vacation time and am always available for various shifts. When you call my references, they will confirm this information. I am proud to be punctual and reliable."
"Punctuality is important to me. I make a point always to be present 15 minutes before my shift. Being early allows me the time to get my computer up and running, pour a cup of coffee and get ready to start my day. I am a healthy individual and have only been absent in situations like vacation time or pre-approved days off."
"My current team has come to know that they can rely on me to be on time, present, and engaged when expected. Punctuality is important to me, and I teach this to my team members as well. I was raised by the old Marine Corp adage; 'If you are not 10 minutes early, you are 10 minutes late'. You are welcome to call my references for confirmation."
