Posted on: November 17, 2021
Amazon XL Warehouse Associate Pay rate: Up to $18.55
You'll be part of the Amazon warehouse team that handles the big
stuff - those unique customer orders that weigh over 50 pounds: big
screen TVs, furniture, appliances, and more. You'll be trained on
how to use technology to handle these heavy bulk items. Even if you
haven't been a "power" player before, that won't limit you from
gaining valuable job experience because you'll be trained on
powered industrial trucks (PIT) such as a forklift or pallet
driver. Many shifts will have you at the helm of our power
equipment getting orders ready for customers, but other times
you'll be on the warehouse floor of our fulfillment centers or
delivery stations working with your teammates, tackling those
hands-on items that need expert handling before they are sent along
their delivery route. If you're someone who thrives on being a
heavy equipment operator, this is the opportunity for you. Duties &

industrial trucks (PIT). Equipment training and certification are
provided free of cost
