I am very much interested to join one organization. I am trying to get any job there. Now they have called for Warehouse Worker job. All I want to know is, is this job suitable for a woman? What are the responsibilities / duties of a warehouse worker? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The short description says:
This position involves duties such as in receiving, storing, assembling for issue or shipment, and shipping a variety of bin and bulk supplies, materials, and equipment. Performance of the work requires knowledge of the methods used in processing material into and out of the supply system (e.g., tallying types/quantities of items against receiving/shipping documents). Skill in palletizing, stacking, and appropriately arranging/placing items in storage locations.
For example, the job title might be listed as "Warehouse Worker" and the job description says a couple things like "We are looking for warehouse workers for our Los Angeles, CA facility" and "must be able to lift 50lbs", but there's a wide range of things one can be expected to do in a warehouse. This also goes with a lot of other jobs posted online. Why are employers so abstract when writing these job descriptions.
19 yr. old male. Warehouse jobs seem to pay fairly decent. Are hey extremely difficult or what? Would it be good to work at such a job while going to community college?
I have a good amount of warehouse experience but get paid crap! I am looking to join a Union! I live in Massachusetts.
Do you know of any Unions in New England that cover warehouse workers?
I'm trying to help a friend of mine write his resume. He has few skills and is a felon. When I ask him what he did, he gives simple answers. Is that all that is necessary? I'm trying to get him to be more detailed, but he doesn't see the need.
Example: Auto detailer- Detailed cars.
Warehouse worker- loaded and unloaded boxes
When looking for "general labor" jobs, is that all that's needed?
Im interesting in pursing a job at a TV, radio or a news station.
I currently have a job as a warehouse worker and Im so sick of it. In the meantime, I studying to get my CCNA (in the IT field), but I also have an big interest in the TV/radio field.
I took a 1 year of media technology in school and 4 semesters of TV production at a local community college. And Ive been volunteering for the TV/audio department at my church (which is pretty large and well-known around the world) for almost two years now.
Im not trying to be a news reporter, radio personality or a executive-level employee but rather someone who works behind scenes. I wish I could go to a technical school or a get a Bachleors Degree in Communications, but I simply cant afford to because Im in so much debt right now. I would love to work in that type of environment though.
Trying to get a job as a general warehouse worker and have been waiting for a week for the background check. I can understand a long wait for government or salary positions but dang it's for general warehouse worker (which I've done my whole life) why is this taking so long and when should I expect a call?
My wife and I have been talking and it seems she may not be able to go back to work because her multiple sclerosis is really taking a toll on her. What that also means is that I am going to be required to stay home as well because she will need help with herself and our new daughter.
We're on a fixed income right now which is her disability and with three people in the home, that will not be enough long term. It also means that I cannot invest anything because I don't have money to invest. I also need something that can be started pretty quickly and doesn't have a long training time. A couple weeks at most would be best.
I cannot do phone work because I cannot be sure that our apartment will always be quiet, especially with a baby and a dog that both randomly make loud noises...lol. They also tend to have equipment requirements beyond a computer and we don't have a landline phone, headset, phone that takes a headset and I use my computer wirelessly (it is a desktop.) I am also not great at creative writing, so freelance writing would be out.
The skills that I have come from being an emergency medical technician or a warehouse worker. So not much to be sure. I can repair computers as far as hardware goes, but there is too much competition in this area ( I know because I tried before). I have looked at things that can be built, but it costs money to start something like that. I have even tried to do a pet walking/sitting business, but it went no where.
So I really do not have alot of skills to say the least. No sales skills, or affiliate marketing skills either.
It really needs to be a in-the-home kind of job, so no cutting grass or cleaning houses. I would also like to be able to include my wife so that she feels as though she is contributing in some way
needs to provide income.
Thank you Stimpy!
I am trying to do the right thing and at least still work in some way.
Johnno, I have looked into that before. What I have found is that unless you yourself have lots of items to sell, you need to go to a dropshipper and they cost money, not necessarily for them, but most won't deal with you until you have a business license.
My wife already does have SSDI, medicaid, medicare and we get foodstamps. We have recently moved into an apartment that only costs us $347, so we're ok there as well.
We would both prefer that it is me that does the in-home care rather then an agency. This is why I asked about in-home jobs. This way I can always be home. I also have a job coach and voc rehab, but they don't look into at-home jobs. They will not send me back to school because they spent money on two surgeries for me already and they have said no more money is allotted to me for training.
Plus, the at-home job is something that needs to start relatively quick. So going to learn a new skill that would be months away is too long.
Thank you for your response.
I'm a warehouse worker assistant. I started out doing all the easy things and now I'm doing all the duties that original warehouse workers are doing (possibly even better). I've worked at the warehouse for almost 2 months now. Would this too early to be asked to be payed what the other workers are paid? (I get 8$/hour, they get 10$/hour)
If this is too early, how long should I wait?
I got a group of investors together with a large amount of money. I am near Silicon Valley so how should i market job positions for people to create this site and run it/work for the company? Also for designers, IT, sales, warehouse workers, officers etc...
I'm tired of wanting to work somewhere and them telling me I need prior experience. How am I going to get experience if they don't give me a chance? And i'm talking about general jobs like I wanted to be a warehouse worker/ stocker but they require 6 month experience, 1 year experience in inventory. Or if they prefer people with experience, they just ignore those that have none? Another job I wanted to do, simply was a busser /waiter. But in order to seat guest and take food orders I need 1 year+ experience in food and dining.. only to be a busser? Its an easy job and they should train.. i'm sick to my stomach and depressed. Where can I go to get experience if I have non? It doesn't make sense to me if the company doesn't train you.. do I need to go to a 2 year college to be a stocker or busser?
I am a hard worker but every job I have had I have been asked to do something dodgy or being bullied or not paid if I refused, Had to beg for overtime/Racial/Religious bullying/work sabotaged for working too hard or taken advantage of(Royal Mail)Had to ignore dodgy goings on by being threatened(Virgin) and being harrassed because I didnt like RAP music and called a racist, extreme prejudice, theft of letters and parcels from the Post Office, supervisor justified stealing from VIRGIN(Richard Bransons got lots of money he wont miss it) dodgy tradesmen, shoddy quality control, certain races getting paid more and others having to beg to be paid, bullying bullying bullying, scams, racism, threats, theft of my property when I refused to let stolen stock be booked on my account, no wonder most people choose to stay on the dole!
Hey everyone, I'm 21 and I've been working Shipping and Receiving in the Aviation industry since 17. I'm more of a Warehouse worker. I'm now looking to get into retail, perhaps something with electronics since I LOOOVE electronics... I'm thinking an ideal job for me would be helping people choose computer parts, or general electronics. I would I make the shift into something like that when my resume is quite extensive in a completely different field. I'm great with people, socially. And honestly I could talk about Computers all day long. =)
In the USA what types of jobs pay minimum wage? Do employers have difficulity getting people to work and or stay in a job for minimum wage.
Around how much do blue collars workers make annually and why do so many whites look down upon them?
I am a 18 year old guy looking a job in specifically in warehouse considering the fact that I only have a month worth's of experience in a cargo warehouse when I lived in Houston . Or how can I even find a job that is relative close in experience I have in the metro detroit area?
I don't think secretaries, clerical workers, customer-service representatives, for example, are white-collar, even if they work in an office or semi-office environment, or even nurses and teachers. What I'm confused on is if white-collar is only doctors, lawyers, accountants, bankers, architects, corporate managers, etc. or if jobs like purchasing and procurement specialist, human resources manager, social worker, and paralegal are truly white-collar.
I know that blue-collar usually refers to professionally-skilled trades like plumber, electrician, truck driver, police office, firefighter, etc. But where I'm confused is whether general/low skilled warehouse workers like loaders/unloaders, forklift drivers, packers, shipping/receiving clerks, etc. are necessarily blue-collar because doesn't "blue-collar" imply a skilled worker?
I live in the houston are and i need to find a nother job, i have expiriance in warehouses as a dock worker and a forklift driver but i dont knw any warehuses around here, any help? where can i find warehouses in houston ?
This is a serious question and I would love to get some opinions. I am 20 years old and so far in my short life I have had 4 jobs. My first job was at a grocery store, and I really hated it, I hate it a lot. I think I hated it so much because at the time I was only 15, lazy, and it was so routine, also people were rude. My second job was working at my university's cafeteria. I hated this as well. I don't think it was because I was lazy, because I did work hard, but the fact that I was being payed $7.25 an hour frustrated me. I also had to deal with rude college students and dumb people, and also the fact that this job was routine. I guess the job I hated the most was probably working at Target. I truly hate going into Target now because I felt that people at Target took their jobs too seriously and there was no end goal. Everything is always trashed and we would get blamed for it. It seriously frustrated me how rude people could be also.
So I guess by just reading this, you could probably see that I hate working because of other people, and also the routine of things. Everyday is the same, and I feel that I am not being a productive citizen, like my work is meaningless because it will get messed up by customers by the next hour. My new job I just received is a peer advisor for my school, and I hope it will end up well..but could someone please tell me how I can be more productive and positive?
Its for a warehouse position, forklifts, packing boxes, etc. I was thinking of wearing Blakc button up, no tie, Dark blue jeans (not perfectly clean, but that style where its a little beatup looking on purpose, but its not bad at all), black socks, and all black tennis shoes. but im not sure if this is a little too casual... suggestions?
