A stocker works at a store organizing, stocking, and restocking shelves with goods for sale. Typically, stores that employ dedicated stockers are larger facilities such as department, appliance, and hardware stores; supermarkets also use stockers. The primary job of a stocker is to replace and rotate items on the sales floor in compliance with store procedures. They may follow inventory or restock reports generated by previous or ongoing sales data to replace items. In instances where new products are to be offered, the stocker typically helps manage space and display areas as part of the job.
