Job description

Do you have some experience with orderpicking, or want to learn how to do it? Then this may be the job for you! Europe's fastest growing non-food discounter is hiring orderpickers for a logistic center in Echt.

The company you'll work for has stores all over Europe. These stores need to receive new products every day. At the logistics center in Echt, orders are picked, packed and sent off to stores in the area. As an order picker, you're responsible for picking the right products from the warehouse using modern tools - such as a remote-controlled EPT and a VoicePick system. The warehouse itself is quite new and has modern facilities, such as a well-equipped canteen with daily fresh products for low prices. When working in the afternoon shift, there's no need to cook, because you receive a free meal.

If you're ambitious, there are plenty of opportunities to grow to a higher function - such as team leader, planner, etc. If you're a teamplayer that's ambitious, enthusiastic, and up for a new challenge, apply with us today and get to work as soon as possible!
