Day-to-day work for a warehouse laborer includes loading and unloading shipments. The worker must be careful and accurate in reading box and shipment notices, ensuring goods are stored in the proper locations and loaded as specified by received orders. The laborer is also expected to help promote a clean, efficient work environment by cleaning and organizing sections of the warehouse. Warehouse laborers may be asked to assist with shipment inspections to ensure the integrity and undamaged state of goods to be stored.
Additionally, warehouse workers assist supervisors with inventory work. They may also be required to help perform routine safety and security inspections of the warehouse and holding areas. In warehouses where delicate or temperature-sensitive items are stored, the warehouse laborer must ensure that temperatures are closely monitored and any equipment malfunctions regarding cold storage HVAC is immediately reported to a supervisor.
Because warehouse laborer positions are frequently entry level, the educational requirements for such workers are generally limited to being able to read labels. The warehouse laborer must also communicate well with others and have good interpersonal skills. This can be a physically demanding job, however, and warehouse laborers must be ready to lift and move bulky boxes in excess of 50 pounds. Warehouse labor can be shift work, with schedules that run at all hours of the day and evening, depending upon the individual employer. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
