The Seasonal Receiving Associate is responsible for providing a great shopping experience, and driving sales and profit through customer service and accurate processing of merchandise entering and leaving the building. Duties include receiving activities, packing and shipping, reverse logistics, sustainability and other duties as needed.
In a Flex (Flexible Work Team) position, you won’t have assigned shifts or guaranteed hours each week, but you will have maximum flexibility to earn money – and a generous employee discount - around your personal schedule. On key days or peak shopping times, however - like a One Day Sale or the week leading up to Christmas – you will be assigned a shift. These assigned shifts are based on preferences that you set and update periodically during the year.
Seasonal Receiving Associate shifts start when the location receives their truck:
Early Mornings - Shift starts between 4 am and 6 am
Mid Mornings - Shift starts between 7 am and 10 am
Afternoons - Shift starts between 11 am and 2 pm
Mid Afternoons - Shift starts between 3 pm and 5 pm
