Why work here:

  • It is a large kit building and sample processing operation. Candidates will travel throughout the entire facility, including the lab, moving material In the lab they are required to put on a lab coat and eye protection.
    • It has grown in business never before seen due to COVID-19. They build kits used for a variety of testing and are ramping due to the influx of orders for clinical trials testing for a vaccine.
    • 6 months contract to hire.

Responsibilities:

They are looking for warehouse associates to assist with basic warehouse duties. Labcorp is overfilling with COVID testing kits, which means the warehouse is the busiest it has ever been.

A typical day after reporting in for work would be:

  • Check reports to see where in the warehouse we have "0 balance". This would mean there is an empty pallet on the warehouse rack that needs to be removed. Candidates will go remove those pallets, clean them, and stack them in the warehouse.
    • When the first freight shipment comes to the dock, you will unload the freight, move to the unloading area, and use the printed labels to label the boxes. Warehouse folks will have to make sure that the right label goes on the right box.
    • Once labeled, they will then determine what location the boxes go (lab, warehouse for racking, etc). They could be the person that uses the pallet jack to bring the product to the lab or KP. They could use the pallet jack to pack products onto the warehouse shelves if needed.
    • At the end of the day, it is similar to the beginning. Putting away product or cleaning off racks of empty pallets.
