Warehouse Worker/Manager

The Role

A warehouse worker's job description can include a variety of duties varying from shipping, receiving and handling functions and different equipment. Warehouse worker's often use a piece of equipment called a forklift, which is a piece of machinery for operating material-handling equipment. Their role may include spending a lot of time standing and handling heavy objects. Preparing goods to be shipped may also be a role for a warehouse worker, along with loading objects and items onto a truck to be delivered. Some warehouse workers may be trained to deliver goods themselves, however others may not. The warehouse manager delegates tasks to different workers and constantly makes sure that everything is running to perfection. Much of a warehouse manager's job involves performing human resources duties. A manager identifies the need for stock, and hires new employees when needed.
