Job Description for Loader

Loaders hold a physically demanding position requiring the ability to work long hours with continuous attention to detail, as well as the ability to use equipment such as a forklift and handcart. Typical tasks performed by loaders include securely loading and unloading product and items while maintaining accurate inventory and transfer reports. Loaders work under a supervisor who monitors their work for quality and quantity; however, it is the responsibility of the loader to secure inventory and monitor vehicles to ensure reliability and report any damages immediately. Loaders interact on a regular basis with route drivers and are expected to communicate with these drivers in an effective, timely manner to meet deadlines and facilitate the transfer process. Customer interaction, though infrequent, must be handled professionally and tactfully.
