What is a Warehouse Selector and how do I become one?

What is a Warehouse Selector?

Warehouse selectors are responsible for selecting and packing merchandise to be shipped to customers.

They typically work in warehouses and distribution centers, where they use hand-held scanners and other tools to identify and locate products in the warehouse, and then pick the products and pack them into boxes for shipping.

How do I become a Warehouse Selector?

To become a warehouse selector, you typically need your GCSEs or equivalent and some level of experience working in a warehouse or distribution center. Many employers also prefer to hire candidates who have experience using hand-held scanners, forklifts, and other warehouse equipment.

Warehouses may provide on-the-job training for new employees, but it's also beneficial to have knowledge about warehouse operations and safety procedures, as well as good physical condition, as the job can be demanding and require lifting and moving heavy items.

Additionally, it can be beneficial to have good attention to detail, and the ability to work independently and efficiently.

It's worth noting that some warehouses and distribution centers may require their selectors to have a specific certification, such as a forklift certification, which can be obtained through independent or on-the-job training.
