Freight associates are an essential part of our store. They ensure aisles are stocked and ready for customers by unloading trucks using conveyors, manual pallet jacks, forklifts, etc., and then placing the product on the shelves and in storage overhead until needed. They are responsible for providing customer service as needed.
