A day at work
Inventory Control Clerk (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 6, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: unorganized enviroment within department
A typical day involves me starting my day inputting restock orders via data entry for merchandise needed on the sales floor, for all three stores all during the day, next I restock each register with supplies needed for the day bags,boxes, wrapping tissue etc.. next I check each order for correctness of quanties, prices, and product and deliver to sales – more... floor. I cancel out damages and send unsellable inventory back to vendors. Communication with managers is foggy at best but i work around it, I get along fine with all co-workers. The hardest part of the day involves me doing duplicate orders for the store and wasting time returning it to stock room. the most enjoyable part of my job is keeping busy and making the day go by i can always find something to work on – less
