Anthony M Smith, UNFI
“Thanks for everything! 2019 has been a year to remember! It has been my pleasure to have the opportunity to engage in a working relationship with RSS.
UNFI was at the forefront of what was going to become not only a business hurdle but a national pandemic. I was faced with multiple union strikes and staffing shortages around the United States. Upon notification of my first strike (walk-out) RSS was able to provide within 48-72 hours all the support necessary to get the distribution center up and running and on-time to customers. The customers stated that the replacement workers were better than the regular workforce.
I can not tell you how much I appreciated the support you and your team was able to provide when we were faced with a national emergency.”
Regional Vice President, U.S. largest food distributor
“I wanted to reach out and thank you for the support provided. This was new territory for our management team. When it came to contingency drivers, your team stepped up in a very significant way during a very troubling time for our distribution center. Not only were you there for us, but you proved to be extremely fast and flexible with filling our needs in under 48 hours notice. Your onsite management of your driver contingency team was the exact partnership we needed to ensure we could focus our time on our customers.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a typical day for a warehouse worker?
A typical day for a warehouse worker can vary depending on the specific role and tasks assigned. Warehouse workers are responsible for receiving and unloading shipments, organizing, and labeling inventory, picking and packing orders, and preparing items for shipment. They may operate equipment such as forklifts, pallet jacks, or other material-handling machinery. They must also ensure that the warehouse is kept clean and organized and that safety protocols are followed.
Daily work may involve:
- Reviewing work orders.
- Scanning barcodes to track inventory.
- Using computer systems to manage inventory levels.
Physical tasks such as lifting and moving heavy items around the warehouse may also be required. Communication and teamwork are essential as warehouse workers work in a collaborative environment to ensure tasks are completed efficiently and accurately.
What is it like to work in a warehouse?
Depending on the specific warehouse, the work environment may be noisy and dusty or require protective gear such as hard hats or safety glasses. Shifts may vary, including early mornings, evenings, or overnight work.
It can get very hot in the summer in a warehouse and cold in the winter if loading doors are left often, or you work in a frozen foods plant. However, OSHA recommends that companies maintain all internal companies between 68-78° F, with humidity in approximately 20 to 60 percent.
Overall, the work of a warehouse worker is physically demanding and requires thorough concern for all the areas involved, organization, and safety awareness.
What does a warehouse manager do?
- Hiring, training, supervising warehouse workers, setting work schedules, and managing employee performance.
- Overseeing inventory levels, managing stock counts, and ensuring inventory records are accurate.
- Coordinating the receipt and shipping of goods, ensuring that deliveries are made on time and that products are stored and handled appropriately.
- Ensuring that the warehouse complies with safety regulations and other relevant standards, identifying potential safety hazards, and developing safety protocols.

- Managing the warehouse budget, monitoring expenses, and identifying ways to reduce costs while maintaining productivity and efficiency.
How do I hire a warehouse worker?
- Determine your job requirements before you start the hiring process. Identify the specific skills, experience, and qualifications you need in a warehouse worker. This will help narrow the applicant pool and make the recruitment process more efficient.
