If you're looking to make some extra money for the holiday season, seasonal jobs in a warehouse are where it's at! From handling orders to packaging products, warehouses need full-time and part-time workers this winter. We're breaking down the top five warehouse jobs you should apply for.      

Forklift Operator  

In this seasonal holiday job, you'll operate the machines that help move products in and out of the warehouse. Forklift drivers ensure boxes, barrels, and pallets of holiday goods are placed in the correct warehouse area, make it on and offloading docks, and properly store them. They're also responsible for ensuring items are packed and labeled correctly before they're even moved. Other job responsibilities include maintaining the forklift, cleaning up their work area, and keeping records of what they've done that day.    

The Skills You Need: Aside from being certified, you should have excellent coordination, communicate well with others, prioritize safety, and stay organized.    

Shipping and Receiving Associate  

There has to be a team of people who oversee everything that goes in and out of a warehouse, especially during a busy holiday season. That's where Shipping and Receiving associates come in. They inspect and record all incoming and outgoing shipments – from products to the boxes a warehouse needs to pack. They check to ensure the orders aren't damaged or missing any items and are exactly what the company ordered. They coordinate with shipping departments and delivery carriers to ensure products are shipped on time.  

The Skills You Need: In this job, you have to be organized, thorough, physically fit, and know how to manage your time.  

Stocking Associate  

If no one can find the products needed to fill holiday orders, it can bring the whole warehouse operation to a standstill. Stockers ensure that shelves are stocked, and each item is clearly labeled with the appropriate inventory codes. They're in charge of unloading incoming shipments, getting them to their proper storage areas, and keeping these areas clean and orderly.  

The Skills You Need: As a stocking associate, you need to be physically fit to stock shelves, know how to multi-task, and pay great attention to detail.  

Material Handler  

In this warehouse job, you'll transform an online shopping cart into a physical package that goes out to a customer. With online ordering at an all-time high, warehouses will hire like crazy for this position. First, these workers print order tickets, find those order items in the warehouse, and scan their barcodes for inventory purposes. Then it's time to pack them up, ensuring they're wrapped up and put in labeled boxes to keep them intact during shipping. Material handlers are also in charge of keeping up with inventory.  

The Skills You Need: This entry-level job requires having basic math skills, great attention to detail, staying organized, and the ability to handle the physical demands of the job, including carrying oversized items and being on your feet all day.     


You can find these warehouse associates working on the loading docks. They are responsible for loading and unloading shipments from the delivery trucks in and out of the warehouse. They will inspect, pack, and unpack those shipments. They may use specialized software to help them track shipments to make sure they're accurate and nothing is missing.   

The Skills You Need: Because this job requires a lot of physical activity, you'll need to be able to move oversized items and be on your feet all day. Other skills you'll need for this job are the ability to learn tracking software, be a stickler for safety, and have excellent attention to detail.
