Freight Handlers unload and load products that are delivered to warehouse distribution centers, using forklifts, pallet jacks, other material handling equipment or by hand.
Additional responsibilities include breakdown and separation of freight, re-packaging and palletizing, and centralized staging within the warehouse.
They report directly to their immediate supervisor.
Partners will be required to re-work cases/pallets of product according to customers’ specifics at a safe and efficient pace. Paying attention to details and being a reliable team player are extremely important responsibilities associated with this job.
Duties are physically demanding since cases and pallets (weighing between 25 to 100 lbs.) have to be re-worked due to possible shifting during transit. Inspection for damaged product and replacing any broken pallets and plastic wrapping product to keep it from leaning and/or falling is imperative. Partners must keep their work environment safe and clean at all times.
