We currently have a position available for a Shipper/Loader New Hire at our Fox Valley (Aurora) Box manufacturing facility, starting at $17.94/hour. This will be a floater position, with standard work hours of 7:00pm - 3:00am. The floater will also cover for planned absences, so flexibility with work hours will be required for this position. The Shipper Loader New Hire requires you to possess all skills and perform all duties of the Shipper Loader position.

The Shipper Loader is responsible to operate lift trucks in a safe and effective manner. As part of your responsibilities, you will learn which line to send product through and possess the knowledge of strapping patterns. You will assure loads are strapped with proper dunnage according to instructions, and any other customer-specific requests. While performing the strapping operation, it is essential to load strapping onto machine, clean heads, know strap patterns, number of straps per unit, monitor loads for any box problems, and notify supervisor of any problems.

Lift truck operators are required to sweep trailers and floor areas, complete a daily safety check list, change propane tanks, check the fluids and air filters on their lift truck, monitor the take off line following strapping processes and load material onto designated trucks (requiring record of load tallies). You will transport product from the take-off line to appropriate areas of the warehouse.

It is also essential to load warehoused product from the warehouse to the loading dock, as well as to receive product from incoming trucks, sign for the receipt of it, and transport to different departments. Proper paperwork must always be turned in to the shipping office.

The Shipper Loaders rotate amongst the strapper position, take-off line lift truck, and floor driver lift truck operation procedures.
