All Shifts available.

Material Handlers will work on the Inbound dock depalletizing pallets of product and stack on convey lines. Prior to placing cases on the convey line, will place labels on cases to be scanned into the Logistics management system. Hand stacking cases of product is an integral and repetitive part of the Inbound and Outbound process. Work is performed in a warehouse setting and is physically demanding. Consequently, handlers must be capable of consistently, efficiently and safely performing such work. Material Handlers will work on the Outbound docks taking product from the convey lines and placing product on a pallet. Material Handlers will use bands, shrink wrap and corner boards to secure product to a pallet. Moderate twisting and turning of the body is required on both the Inbound and Outbound docks while stacking product.

Material Handlers are expected to work productively and safely in ALL areas of the job and are required to maintain a clean and uncluttered work area to ensure a safe and productive work environment. Handlers are required to continually pick up cardboard, plastic and wood pieces from the work area.
Material handlers will work on the Inbound and Outbound docks as needed, depending on the workload.
Pallets are an essential part of the Inbound and Outbound process. Pallets weigh an average of 35 pounds but can weigh as much as 65 pounds. Cases of product must be stacked atop pallets of acceptable quality so the product can be transported within the warehouse and ultimately be stored in the racking system. A Handler can expect to process between 50-200+ pallets on any given day.
Material Handlers will operate pallet jacks, forklifts and reach trucks in order to complete loads or assignments.
Material Handlers will do other jobs that include repacking, merchandizing, Quality re-work, sorting/grading and specialty service.
Material Handlers will follow all FHI safety, food safety and radiation safety procedures.
