Job Description for Warehouse Worker

Warehouse workers facilitate the distribution of goods. They load and unload trucks, place goods in storage and move inventory when needed. Warehouse workers play an important and dangerous role: They spend their time lifting objects most of the day, including heavy ones, so the risk of injury is higher for warehouse workers, particularly if they do not observe safety practices.

Warehouse Worker Reviews

What is it like working as a Warehouse Worker at Amazon.com Inc?
Warehouse Worker in Middletown:
"Stable Job."
Pros: I appreciate that I am able to utilize paid and unpaid time to take time off from the job. The different benefits that are given to us are amazing and I could have never gotten these with another company at this entry level.
Cons: I honestly hate the long hours pulled each day. Many have agreed that we would have appreciated a five day 8 1/2 work scheduled compared to our 4 day 10 1/2 work schedule. Last it's very repetitive and wish the type of work done each day could change to give the job more variety.
