Official duties of the storekeeper
Who can work as a storekeeper?
Each company exposes its requirements when hiring a storekeeper, depending on the specifics of the work. In some cases, knowledge of the product is necessary, in some cases it is necessary to know the computer and warehouse programs. There are some specific requirements that are needed for a particular job.
Sometimes, as a storekeeper, it is the man who is required because of heavy physical exertion (in some small enterprises they also perform loading and unloading operations). But in general, a person with an average and a secondary special education can work as a storekeeper, who, for health reasons, has the right to bear material responsibility for the goods in the warehouse.
Duties of the storekeeper
The storekeeper is a universal employee, who performs many duties based on the characteristics of the enterprise. He is responsible for the reception, placement and release of goods in the warehouse. The main functions of the storekeeper are: compulsory knowledge of the nomenclature of goods, available in the warehouse; knowledge of regulatory and legal norms relating to its work, including the Charter of the enterprise; maintenance of warehouse documentation on the receipt and transfer of goods (often on the computer in the program 1C, if not - then manually).
When accepting goods, the storekeeper must check the correctness of the positions, quantity and completeness. He unloads and loads the goods through the loaders, and in their absence - performs it himself. Next, he must arrange the goods according to the conditions of his storage in accordance with all requirements (temperature, fragility, dimensions, etc.). Goods release is also the responsibility of the storekeeper. He must either complete the orders himself or supervise the work of the pickers, checking the correctness of the cargo assembly.
The order in the warehouse must also be maintained by the storekeeper, as well as keeping a record of all the available goods. Because this employee is a materially responsible person, he periodically conducts an inventory of the warehouse under the supervision of the warehouse manager or independently, depending on the structure of the enterprise.
It is possible to perform any other duties, but this is all prescribed in the employment contract with a particular employer. It is necessary to read carefully all the points about the forthcoming work, so that in the future there are no questions and conflict situations.
