    • Candidates will be responsible for handling and processing freight in a safe and cautious manner, tell management about unsafe work conditions and damaged product, and maintain a clean work area.
    • Loaders will be responsible for specific ways to load trucks as materials come down the conveyor systems or are delivered to them; i.e. heavy products on the bottom and lighter product on the top as their primary duty is material handling. This is a very labor intensive job as they could be off and on the backs of trailers however they will not be loading any non-conveyable product.

      • This is primarily a job where they will stay near the dock all day as there isn't a significant amount of walkingCross Dock
        • As it sounds, there are materials that cross from one location to another in their freight processing; it is often coming off of one truck only to be processed and hten placed on another truck for specific store deliveries.Candidates in this role will likely be unloading and loading trucks with everything that could be in a walmart store (Christmas trees, Tvs, non-perishable items) Candidates will be responsible for managing deliveries that are received; managing and moving floor level freight only via hand or manual pallet jack and building pallets materials.
          • Candidates could manage freight deliveries by processing, identifying, counting, separating, and scanning freight with computer software; placing on pallets or perhaps conveyance systems and working on a team of typically 2-4 per truck to process materials. Candidates in cross dock may be asked to organize inventory as it comes down the conveyor and have the ability to load trucks with final product as needed.**LIfting requirements could be up to 50lbs and if asked; could move between areas therefore flexbility and a lot of walking could be involved simply based on the size of the facility. Loading and Cross Dock however are very close together.
