Productive work within a supermarket warehouse distribution centre
Warehouseman (Current Employee) – Leyland, ENG – 11 April 2015
Picking orders from shelves as directed by a computerised headset - which I wear and I then have to confirm orders completed / picked, by communicating with the computer. The orders are then transferred onto a large trolley, which is then wheeled to the lorries bay ready for distribution to retail customers, e.g. Waitrose, and other food chain supermarkets / customers.
I have learnt how to use a computerised headset and follow instructions as directed by the computer, in order to pick orders for distribution in a timely manner. I have learnt to communicate more with Management and the team I have been working with, including working on my own initiative.
The hardest part of the job, is to work to targets of 1000 order picks per shift of 8 hours per day. This is quite challenging when there are lots of other staff working in close proximity.
The most enjoyable part of the jobs, is knowing that I have achieved the order picks ready for distribution, as much of the order picks are food - which is quite an important commodity.
