Shipper/Receiver may be a fancy name for a stock associate and it certainly simplifies what the main part of my job is/was. It means early mornings on the days that shipment arrives. Unloading hundreds of boxes, sorting these & processing them to the sales floor or backstocking them in the stock room. Keeping the areas of the stock room organized, by department or category. A lot of hard work, which at the end of the day when your feet hurt from standing for 8 hours or you have sore muscles from moving/loading out furniture, equals a job well done. You loaded a crib for a couple who is expecting their first child. Or helped some grandparents buy furniture for a playroom for their grandkids. Shipped out a shower gift for an expectant mother.
Retail is hard work, but the rewards of making a customers day are great. Stock in particular was an outlet for me to hone my organizational skills. And with this job, I managed to get my daily exercise without a gym membership.
