The average Stock Clerk in the United States earns approximately $10.91 per hour. The most influential factor affecting pay for this group is career length, though geography and the specific company have a (lesser) impact as well. Health benefits are not enjoyed by everyone in this line of work, and just over two-fifths lack any coverage at all. Medical benefits are reported by more than half and dental coverage is claimed by more than two-fifths. Most Stock Clerks survey respondents are men (79 percent). For the most part, people in this position report moderate levels of job satisfaction. This overview is based on answers to PayScale's salary questionnaire.

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.
