Does sanitation/utility stack pallets and put them on the truck?
Permalink   


I've been doing this for a few years. We got a new assistant manager. He got upset to see me bagging and dragged me away from the front end to move pallets around. I've been told customer first by another manager and my supervisor. We had one person bagging and three lanes of people. I always get told to do different things and sometimes the old manager would kind of contradict himself. I'm confused on what my duties include because I've done pallets only when asked, but mot been told it was part of my job. Should I just ask someone in charge to make me a list. Like a check list, not in any order I mean. If I see nobody bagging, or that we're super busy and one bagger isn't going fast enough, am I just supposed to ignore customers and go throw wood around or whatever? I guess confusion is part of the job.

What is your job title?

As a clerk, you do whatever the store manager or co manager requests you to do.  If you are over 18, you are allowed to use the power equipment.

Here the Utility clerk stacks bottle bins.  Usually, the department clerks stack pallets and put them on the salvage trailer.  There usually is not many pallets to stack during the daytime.

Under our contract, a CC can "tie up cardboard and cartons".  A Utility Clerk does "Bailing and loading of salvage".  A UC can use power equipment if they are 18 and properly trained....

My store also has a front end clerk that does grocery too. I think all stores have a replenishment clerk in all but name only that does front end and grocery, aka moving pallets around and completing various random tasks from mgmt.

I am a UC and am trained on bailing and also stacking pallets, but am not trained on power equipment / floor scrubber. I usually if on nights will organize our paper / plastic area and keep it neat and tidy, mostly because no one wants to. I stack pallets if it's slow or nothing to do on FE at that time, aside from any store maintenance tasks (garbage, recycling, bathroom checks / store sweeps / checks, etc) and have been pulled by management before to do projects in grocery and also help with display / aisle set up before. Heck if there isn't much to do, I will find something to do because I am there to work. and will have my fellow UCs help me out if i feel they should do so they can also keep working and we can get stuff done. There is always something to do, there is no such thing as no work to do.
