There are different roles you can play in a warehouse. Some of the most common positions we match are:
Packers in a warehouse are responsible for stacking, piling and preparing goods for shipping. Training is usually done on the job and requires little knowledge beforehand.
Someone who is hired in a warehouse as a material handler helps keep the materials and the manufacturing process well organized. Most of their job duties include unloading materials into the warehouse from shipping trucks, labeling items, and organizing the materials within the warehouse.
Forklift drivers are responsible for transporting material within the warehouse using forklifts. Forklift drivers do require a certification in order to operate machinery within a warehouse, and therefore pay more than some other common warehouse jobs.
Jobs in assembly and production work on the assembly line and operate on one part of the process at a time. This can include assembling pieces, inspecting products, or reading blueprints.
Inventory Control Clerk
Inventory control clerks keep track of the materials and stock moving in and out of the warehouse. An inventory clerk’s duties can include counting materials, coordinating other warehouse positions, verify shipping arrangements, and streamlining the manufacturing process.
Shipping and Receiving Coordinator
Shipping and receiving coordinators handle all shipping and receiving of products. The duties can include communication with vendors, inputting materials into the computer database, ordering low inventory materials, preparing documents for shipping and receiving, and gathering product numbers and descriptions.
