Retail stock clerks are responsible for keeping the shelves and racks of their store stocked with merchandise. Typically, stock clerks work in a store's warehouse or backroom and are often found in big-box retailers, grocery stores, and department stores; however, smaller stores may also employee these clerks. Stock clerks are responsible for receiving shipments of merchandise from manufacturers or corporate warehouses, comparing the shipments to inventory manifests, and unpacking the shipments for storage. Accurate counting and inventory helps a store prevent shrink, or loss of goods.
