Manual Unloader for Europe's Biggest Postal Facility

Job description

This job is perfectly suited for people who enjoy physical work and don't mind working night shifts (for a good bonus!). We're hiring (un)loaders of poastal trucks for the biggest postal hub of Europe, located in Oirschot (NL).

This postal facility is, in fact, a hyper-modern, automated sorting hub. Employees unload he packages onto a conveyor belt, after which they are sorted fully automatically and end up at the next postal truck. Here, the packages are loaded by employees and sent off to their next destination. On average, each package spends only 2,5 minutes inside the building!


As an (un)loader you will be unloading and loading the postal trucks with packages sent by webshops and private people. You will place or receive the packages from a conveyer belt (Caljan) that can be extended until completely into the postal truck. You'll make sure that all packages are labeled, so they can be read by a scanner inside the postal facility. Working in this position means that you have to be on your feet (literally) at all times. It's important to concentrate at all times, so that you don't make any errors in labeling packages or loading the postal trucks. For safety reasons, it's important that you understand English or Dutch at a B1 level.


As a reward for your hard work, you will receive a good salary and have access to an employee’s benefit program. The benefit program gives you special discounts on shopping, theme parks, wellness treatments, vacations, and more. You will appreciate the salary; especially when working in the evening, at night, or during weekends, which gives you a fat bonus (up to 50% extra, making the hourly wage up to €15,20!).

Working hours are divided into three shifts. You may work a different shift every day.
Shift 1: 13:00-22:30
Shift 2: 17:00-02:00
Shift 3: 22:30-07:00

If you have a drivers license (Category B) and use our company housing, you can opt-in to drive one of the company cars to bring yourself and co-workers to work. You can earn a bonus of up to €40 per week by doing this.
