Tips for Applying to a Warehouse Job

With proper forklift training, you have a better chance than other drivers of getting that warehouse job. If you noticed a recent internet or newspaper ad about a warehouse job, it’s time to apply!

Keep these items in mind when you’re getting ready to fill out the application:

Double-check your spelling and grammar. Everything else equal, a warehouse will take the applicant with the neater application.

Blow your own horn. If you’re a high school honors graduate, say so. Or, if you’ve just completed a forklift training course, mention your OSHA credentials. Every little bit helps.

Do your research. Learn about the company you’re applying for. Find out what forklifts they use. If you get to the interview stage, this information will tell the interviewer that you’re prepared.

Ask for the job. It sounds a little too obvious, but some warehouse bosses like a job applicant who just comes right out and asks for the job. You’d be surprised at how many times this works!tips for applying to warehouse job
