Official Job Title? Order Selector, but we like to think of our Warehouse staff as Industrial Athletes due to the extremely physical nature of their jobs. Professional Athletes typically exert their energy in short bursts - for instance, a hockey game is finished in under 3 hours - but our Industrial Athletes expend that same energy level for a continuous 10 hour period, four days per week!

As an Order Selector, you will handle an average of 1,500 cases per shift, with each case weighing an average of 30 pounds - but up to 72 pounds. You will also move a lot - walking, standing, stretching, and bending - on average you will walk over 10 kilometers in a single shift. It is very repetitive work, so the ideal person for the job is very self-motivated and likes to continually challenge themselves. The hours appeal to those who are night owls - shifts typically start early in the afternoon and end in the early morning.

As challenging as this job is, it is also very rewarding. The pay is above average, with opportunity to earn more on each bi-weekly pay check depending on your ability to work quickly, accurately, and safely. There is also plenty of opportunity for advancement - many of our Management and Senior Leaders started in this very same position and have grown their career with our Fortune 50 Company. Your hard work and dedication can pay off.
