Shipping Associate
Dragan Technologies

General Description:
The shipping associate is responsible for monitoring the merchandise leaving the company's warehouse. This could include creating shipping documents, such as invoices and purchase orders, and pulling inventory from the shelves. Once an order has been filled, you're responsible for monitoring each shipment to make sure that outgoing packages are packed correctly and accurately. You may then need to print shipping labels, schedule pick-ups, and ensure that each package has the proper postage. The company requires you to complete all of these tasks quickly enough to meet the company's production quotas. You will have to use a scale and, in some cases, a forklift to perform these job duties. The shipping associate will handle both initial shipping and any returns or replacements. When necessary they will cross train and participate in other aspects of the business, particularly on the production side.
