Job Description for Stock Clerk, Grocery Store
Grocery store stock clerks are responsible for maintaining the order of stock within a supermarket or grocery store. This work involves keeping inventory of the store's wide range of stock and examining items that may need to be replenished or restocked, as well as knowing when a reduction in ordering is needed. They must also be keenly aware of when their retailer is transferring, discontinuing, or receiving new merchandise, and many are responsible for receiving, unpacking, inspecting, and processing new deliveries upon arrival, as well as spotting any issues and replacing damaged items if necessary.Read More...
Upon receiving goods, stock clerks must track their processing and tag items for inventory control. From there, they distribute items to their correct locations, sometimes using small electric hand trucks. Along with simply stocking shelves, grocery store stock clerks must also stay up-to-date with price changes and display them accordingly. They also use their knowledge of their store's inventory to assist customers and direct them to their desired locations.
Grocery store stock clerks are employed by grocery stores and may work either full-time or part-time, and their hours are usually set in shifts. Their work requires some interaction with others, mainly delivery companies and customers, but much time is also devoted to processing and managing inventory independently. Their work is indoors, both in the storerooms and the retail store itself. No official credentials are required as training is provided on-the-job, but many employers prefer those with a high school diploma. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
