You’ll also be asked to assess quality of produce, to help with general organization and cleanliness in the warehouse, and to do pick-ups from some of our amazing suppliers.

You will be responsible for making sure our warehouse and warehouse equipment is in a good state of repair, as well as maintaining a constant awareness of safety along with a clean and safe warehouse

  • Able to meet tight deadlines and stay on schedule
  • Positive, pro-active and able to face a challenge with a smile
  • Reliable and punctual always

Hours:This position’s hours would be Monday to Friday 6:00 am – 2:30 pm (though there might be the option to work Sunday through Thursday if that was preferable).
