Job Description for Stock Clerk

Stock clerks are typically employed by large supermarkets and grocery stores, although “big box” retailers and warehouse club-style stores may also employ them. These clerks split their time between the storage section of the store and the sales floor, helping move goods from stock and warehouse areas to empty sales space. The stock clerk is expected to work in an organized manner, following store procedures to move and stock goods. In a grocery store setting, part of the stock clerk's work involves ensuring that perishable items are stocked in a way that allows items to maintain proper temperature and meet shelf-life requirements.

Pay by Experience Level for Stock Clerk

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Stock Clerks with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Survey participants with less than five years' experience report a median income of $20K, and earnings aren't much higher for respondents who have five to 10 years under their belts; respondents in the latter group report a median of just $22K. Stock Clerks who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $27K. In the end, more experience does seem to mean larger paychecks; seasoned Stock Clerks with more than 20 years of experience earn a predictably higher median salary of $29K.
