  • H.S. Diploma required
  • Experience in a distribution center or related facility required; previous postal logistics experience a plus.
  • Ability to work within a high-volume, team-centric environment.
  • Physical Demands: Be able to operate in a moderately noisy environment. The employee is regularly required to sit; use hands to finger, handle, or feel; reach with hands and arms and talk or hear. The employee is frequently required to stand; walk and stoop, kneel, crouch, or crawl. The employee must occasionally lift and/or move up to 70 pounds. The employee must occasionally operate a lift truck and use a hand truck. The employee may be required to perform repairs on equipment or machinery.

What's in it for you?

  • A contract-to-hire opportunity within an established, stable company - the role will become permanent after the introductory period
  • Fun environment that focuses on 'getting the work done'
  • Growth potential
  • Competitive hourly rate with the potential for a permanent position
