Warehouse Forklift Operator, Refrigerated - Atlanta




Dacula, near Atlanta, GA

Job Description

Simply put, our Warehouse Forklift Operators are masters of skillfully maneuvering industrial powered equipment.  Join the team and use your skills to help Publix Distribution maintain a smooth, safe, and orderly process when moving product within Publix’s warehouses.
Warehouse Forklift Operators maneuver powered industrial equipment to move cases and pallets and put them into their assigned slots in the warehouse.  They move product from the receiving dock to reserve locations.  As pick locations are emptied by Warehouse Selectors, the Warehouse Forklift Operators replenish them, pulling product from reserve locations. The Warehouse Forklift Operators take care to rotate inventory using the most dated inventory first.  Furthermore, the Warehouse Forklift Operators help maintain a clean warehouse and sweep out empty slots. Occasionally, they fill in for the Warehouse Selectors, and other positions, as business needs demand.
The responsibilities listed on this posting are not intended to be all-inclusive and additional responsibilities may be assigned as needed.
