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.Read More...
Additionally, warehouse assistants help maintain accurate inventory figures within the warehouse. They work with supervisors to maintain an accurate count on the number and type of goods stored. As with other areas in this position, accuracy is highly valued. The assistant typically works as part of a team under the supervision of a foreman or supervisor, following various inventory control processes as designed by the company. Assistants work in a warehouse environment; due to the shipping needs of some companies, daytime, evening, and/or overnight shift work may be required.
A high school diploma or equivalent is typically required in this position. Long hours may be required, including the ability to stand and walk for long periods of time. The ability to lift up to 50 pounds may be required as well. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
