In this position the person of interest will be doing order picking 95% of his/her day. They will be entering order numbers into a scan gun base off a pick sheet that is designated from a supervisor. This pick sheet will tell them the number of picks in a specific location and then will let them know the number of items to pick. The training process will be very detailed because there are multiple unites in a package, on a line item. People need to understand basic math and anyone that has cherry picker experience is someone that we want to attack off the get go.

The order pickers can be expected to go up to 25 feet, so they can’t be scared of heights. Most picks will be done on the first 3 shelves or 12 feet, however. On the tour, you will be able to show the picker and make sure that people are able to pass the judgement factor of being in the air. If they are not going to be a fit for the picking function, there is a freezer crew, receiving crew and people that count inventory. Warehouse order picking is going to be the main function so making sure that anyone that come from this function and is interested in making bonus money on their picks per hour, per day, per month….. there is a bonus structure clearly laid out.

We are mainly looking for 1st and 2nd shift order pickers but not opposed to 3rd shift working as well. Most new employees will be operating a cherry picker and an RF scan gun for 95% of the day. We need to make sure that people are again, comfortable with potentially elevating in the air but utmost picking the designated lines for make quotas. There are going to be time where people are going to be asking to use pallet jacks and wrapping machines…. This will be for the staging process but will make sure that efficiency and pick bonuses are met!

People will be asked to continue to pick line items at a consistent level that will be laid out in the expectation’s sections below. Those how don’t meet the minimal expectations will be terminated for efficiency errors but those who exceed the minimal expectations will receive $1-2 an hour per month bonus. This will be a big-time metric that people will be held accountable to.
