Stocking and Repacking Assistant

You’ll help sort delivered food donations and bring them out to shelves for the shoppers. You’ll keep the store tidy and inviting by doing some general sweeping and cleaning. You’ll get a general sense of the store’s layout so you can help a customer when they say, “Could you tell me where I can find the….?”

Is This the Right Fit for Me?

You love being active and on your feet. You’re able to comfortably lift about 15 lbs at a time with your hands and arms to restock and arrange product on the shelves. You take pride in making a space look nice, so you’ve got your eye out for a fallen box of cereal on the shelf when you walk by. You don’t mind taking on the little things that make a big difference, like wiping down a shelf or sweeping up some spilled rice.
