Receiving Person

Rock Valley, IA
 

Description:

Wanted – a detail-oriented team-player who enjoys both office work and driving forklift, to join the Purchasing team at the Midwest’s premier laser cutting job shop.  We are looking for the right person who can help Kooima Company achieve an aggressive growth goal by receiving in packages and coordinating the outsourcing work area.

 

If this interests you, here are some of the things you would be doing to help us meet our goal:

  • Using a forklift to load and unload product and incoming receipts.
  • Receiving incoming items and delivering them to the correct area in the plant/offices.
  • Making sure there are enough materials to complete daily tasks.
  • Entering received/outsourced items into the computer system.
  • Taking Kanban orders and reordering as necessary.
  • Working with a high degree of efficiency, skill, and quality to help keep our customers’ costs reasonable

 

If you can accomplish the above, you’ve got what it takes.  Realistically though, to enjoy this job and be successful, you need to like both office work and manual work.  You also need to have strong organizational and communication skills.  In addition, you must be able to handle multiple tasks and answer employee and customer questions relating to the receiving department.  You also need to be able to frequently lift, push, and/or pull up to 25 pounds and occasionally up to 75 pounds, as well as regularly bend and reach with hands and arms.  Previous experience in shipping or receiving is preferred.
