Job Description for Storeroom Clerk
Storeroom clerks spend their days (or nights, in some cases) placing stock on shelves or other organizational units, picking the correct items for various activities, and interacting with others in the supply chain; in a larger organization, they may work only with other storeroom clerks, whereas in smaller operations there may be more customer interaction as well. Storeroom clerks generally report to a facilities manager.
Additionally, storeroom clerks may also have ancillary responsibilities, such as stocking shelves on a retail floor or packing and shipping orders to customers around the world. They also tend to work first- or second-shift hours, though there are exceptions to this rule. During holidays or other busy seasons, for instance, some storeroom clerks work extra hours, and some larger firms require 24/7 coverage of their storage facility.
Storeroom clerks are generally expected to have a high school diploma or equivalent, although some companies may hire students who are still in school. Depending on the industry, additional specialized knowledge may also be required. Most storeroom clerks work indoors in a storeroom; most of these are climate-controlled, though the climates in larger warehouses might not be so well-controlled.
