Good temporary employment
Merchandise Puller (Former Employee) – Rexburg, ID – February 20, 2017
I was employed temporarily for the Christmas season as a warehouse merchandise puller. I was payed $8.60/hr. The job was simple and became boring quickly. In my position, there was little opportunity to interact with coworkers because we were all constantly moving through isles to locate and select merchandise.
The job consists of reviewing a printed page with a list of items and their associated ID number which have been ordered online by a customer. Each item has a warehouse location code listed with it. You find the location, pick the item according to its quantity, verify the product ID number and place it in a small tote. Once all items on the order sheet have been gathered, you place the tote on a cart which goes to the shipping department later.
Because of the monotonous nature of the position, I became very bored and was relieved to stop working there. Several times I asked my supervisor if they would teach me another responsibility so I could be of greater assistance, but they said there wasn't anything else for me to do.
This job met my needs, money, but I would seek a different job if you have the opportunity. It is alright for students looking for some money to support themselves. The main reason I didn't like it was that it was boring and I didn't have much interaction with my coworkers.
