Hire a Receiving Clerk

 

Receiving clerks are in charge of managing incoming deliveries to a warehouse or factory, accepting and processing deliveries. They receive the delivery by checking and signing for shipments, unloading and storing the items, and processing them in the case of returns. The goal is to ensure receipt of correct packages and stocking them properly. Receiving clerks work in a warehouse environment and are employed by companies with warehouses or storage units to receive goods. Employers usually include: retailers, wholesalers, B2B suppliers, and similar businesses. In general, clerks work in an indoor setting. However, the location is contingent on the daily needs of the company. They may work independently or in teams, working with representatives both within and outside the company. Receiving clerks typically earn an average salary of $37,000 per year. The career path is well-defined, with professionals progressing into roles such as receiving lead, receiving supervisor, and warehouse supervisor.

 

Responsibilities of a Receiving Clerk

 

In order to ensure that all shipments are accepted and processed on time, receiving clerks undertake a variety of tasks. The core duties are to receive, examine, and record the shipments coming into the warehouse. They are responsible for checking package contents and making sure they match the orders. In case there is a mismatch, clerks contact the supplier or shipper for a replacement. After receiving the shipment, they sort through the items, label them and store them in appropriate storage areas.  While sorting, they record the number of deliveries and report the number to their manager. They also check the items for any physical damage, returning unsatisfactory shipments. Once they find the delivery to be satisfactory, they ensure that invoices are signed and paid. Additionally, they may be required to communicate with vendors, track the inventory levels, and send out purchase requests. They maintain accurate records and assist in inventory control in the process.

 

Key Requirements 

 

Employers seek candidates with qualifications and personality traits that are pivotal to the role. To start with, the candidate must have a high school diploma or a GED and experience working in a similar position. Most hiring managers prefer applicants with previous experience working in a warehouse. Since the job is rigorous and requires constant use of physical strength, the candidate must be physically fit. They must also know how to operate the forklift to store deliveries. They must have the analytical skills to maintain detailed inventory records. Receiving clerks must also have a knack for understanding logistics. They should be knowledgeable about warehouse safety regulations. Ideally, the candidate must have good communication and organizational skills and a keen eye for details. Computer skills and knowledge of data entry and inventory software programs are essential.
