Job Description for Meat Clerk

Meat clerks are responsible for a variety of tasks pertaining to the sale of meat, either at a butcher or a meat section of a grocery store. These tasks include providing quality customer service, weighing and wrapping customers' orders, cutting meat to customers' exact specifications, and maintaining a high product knowledge to most effectively facilitate customer orders and respond to queries. Aside from serving customers directly, meat clerks also have responsibilities behind the scenes, including: placing and receiving orders of a necessary quantity; unloading and transporting deliveries of fresh meat and poultry; pricing and displaying items; examining and rotating stock to prevent products from perishing; maintaining and displaying a knowledge of food safety procedures; and maintaining total sanitation of both the store and its meat products. In some cases, however, the meat clerk will have to do little but serve customers and maintain cleanliness, with larger tasks such as ordering being left to managers and supervisors.
