Order picker at Sligro

Job description

Looking for a nice job? Apply for this job as an order picker at Sligro! Sligro is a catering wholesaler that supplies restaurants and grand cafes in the Netherlands.

As an order picker at Sligro, you'll be working in a cooled warehouse in Veghel. The warehouse has several departments with different temperatures and varying salaries. The cooler your department, the higher your salary.

You'll be responsible for collecting orders from the right departments of the warehouse, receiving orders through voice-pick. Because the company is active in the food sector, everything is carried out according to HACCP guidelines. The products can vary in weight, so it is important that you can lift heavier packages if necessary.

It's important that you're a team player because - together with your colleagues - you make sure that the orders are neatly and completely prepared for transport. The warehouse process consists of three parts: inbound, outbound and formation.
At inbound, you deal with incoming goods. External suppliers bring in products, which must be placed in the right place in the warehouse. Outbound is the process of collecting orders. Finally, formation ensures that the orders leaving the warehouse are on the right route to the right customer.

There are three types of warehouses with different temperatures:

  • Dry groceries: at 15°C
  • Cold rooms: 2°C
  • Freezer: -18/-20°C

If you work in the freezer, you receive special protective clothing and extra paid breaks.

What do you bring?

  • You have your own transport and housing near Veghel
  • You speak intermediate or better English or Dutch (B1 or better)
  • You have working experience in the food industry
  • You're an experienced order picker
  • No problems with working in extreme cold -18°C for a higher salary
  • Valid EPT/reach truck/forklift certificates are a plus
  • You're accurate, work carefully, and are a good multitasker
  • You're willing to work evenings or weekends (for a higher salary)
  • You're looking for a long term job
  • You have a reliable appearance at work
  • You have a clean criminal record (VOG)

What's in it for you?

  • A full-time job in a nice warehouse
  • Full working weeks guaranteed
  • Nice canteen with many food options at low costs
  • Extra breaks and special polar uniforms when working in the freezer
  • Weekly payments in full, every Thursday, directly after the worked week
  • Traveling expenses refund for up to 25km one-way (if using your own car)
  • Healthcare insurance with full coverage
  • €200 yearly for emergency dental care
  • We will help you to receive Zorgtoeslag, >€80/month
  • We will help you apply for an Extra-Territorial Costs tax discount
  • Nice shift allowance of up to 200%
