Are you the type of person who wants things done the right way? Do laziness and sloppy work bother you? Us too!
Our fulfillment team pays attention to the details. We want our customers to get exactly what they ordered in a timely manner.
This isn’t a typical “warehouse” job for mindless drones with a barcode scanner, always running to get the next item then awaiting further instructions from the algorithm overlords. That might work for giant e-commerce companies, but we recognize the value of thoughtful people to ensure customer happiness.
We’re a small team of 18 people total (7 in the warehouse), so personality matters. We want team players who like coming in, solving problems, and enjoy the company of their co-workers (who are all cool and interesting in one way or another).
What’s the job like?
We pull the products from our shelves and carefully pack them into boxes. A lot of our products are glass, so we use bubblewrap to make sure they’ll arrive at their destination in one piece. We use ShipStation to print the shipping labels and NetSuite for inventory management. You don’t need experience with either of those platforms, but you will need to be computer savvy. If you’re not 100% comfortable with computers, this isn’t the job for you.
We receive pallets of inventory from our vendors and check them against our order to make sure what we received matches up against what we ordered, then we put those items into the right bins. If an item gets put into the wrong bin, then it’s likely that the wrong item will get shipped to the customer. No one likes it when that happens.
If you have experience using a forklift, that's great. If not, that's ok too. It's an optional part of the job and if you're interested, you can trained and certified as a forklift operator.
We also like a clean working environment, so we clean up around the warehouse. Sweeping, vacuuming, etc. Stray piece of paper on the floor? Pick it up. If your home is a mess, this isn’t the job for you.
We work in a warehouse, so it can be hot in the summer and cold in the winter. On the plus side, we listen to music & podcasts while we work, we can dress how we like, and everyone gets their birthday off as a paid holiday.
This is a full time position and we need people who are reliable and arrive on time each day.
What about COVID-19?
We only have essential staff on site in our warehouse during this time. All employees who can work from home are doing so. In addition, we've implemented the following safety procedures:
- Everyone is required to wear a mask (provided by us)
- We ask that people stay 6 feet apart (as much as possible)
- Warehouse garage doors are open
- Multiple fans throughout the building keep air moving
- We have 6 HEPA filters with hydroxyl generators that capture and kill viruses and bacteria in the offices and breakroom
