• Hearing and effectively communicating employee grievances.

• Ensuring proper execution of all policies and procedures with regard to warehouse organization picking, packing, shipping, and receiving.

• Excellent communication skills, strong leadership and organizational skills.
• Ability to work in fast-paced environment.
• Valid Driver’s License a must.
