What this job is about

A warehouse practically never sleeps, so if you're all about reliable predictability, working there might be a no-brainer, especially if you prefer a physical job. While it might not be for the weak of arms, warehouse workers enjoy predictable schedules while they receive, store, mark and record items as they come into and leave the warehouse. Warehouse workers answer to the manager, acting as supporting roles to their award-winning directives and are often responsible for keeping the space safe and clean too, keeping records of each. You might even get to bust out some heavy machinery –- hello, forklifts!
