Job Description for Warehouse Assistant

Companies that ship and/or receive large amounts of goods typically employ warehouse assistants to facilitate these processes. The warehouse assistant performs a number of duties related to receiving. They review all incoming bills for accuracy (making sure the bill matches the received goods) and sign off on them. The assistant then works to ensure proper storage of these goods according to their organization's systems and rules. The warehouse assistant also handles shipping - what are often called “picks” or “pulls.” In this situation, a customer has placed an order and the warehouse assistant must accurately remove the needed goods and have them prepared for shipment. Because returns based upon inaccuracy or breakage may be expensive, warehouse assistance must be accurate, work quickly, and work in an organized fashion.
