A warehouse selector at Publix is responsible for selecting and palletizing cases of merchandise from the grocery store’s distribution center to be delivered to individual stores. The job requires the use of a hand-held scanner and an electric pallet jack.
The Publix distribution center receives merchandise from various suppliers and stores it in the warehouse. The warehouse selector uses a hand-held scanner to locate the items that need to be delivered to a particular store.
Once the items are located, the warehouse selector uses an electric pallet jack to load the merchandise onto a pallet and then shrink-wraps it. The shrink-wrapped pallet is then delivered to the store by truck.
The job of warehouse selector is physically demanding and requires the ability to lift heavy objects and stand for long periods of time. Warehouse selectors typically work in shifts that start early in the morning or late at night.
