employment type: full-time
job title: Warehouse Associate
Looking for the coolest job ever? Well look no further---We are the Education & Outreach Company: a small business that makes education and outreach materials located in Tappan, NY. We are biased — but we are pretty sure the company is a wonderful place to work. We make coloring & activity books, playing cards and many other fun products. And let's be honest, to say your job is to help make coloring books is pretty cool. We are looking for a warehouse/production manager to join our team!

Some basics about why the job is great and a point or two that might make it seem less great:

1. You will be working in our warehouse. We are looking for someone who can lead our warehouse operations to help manage our inventory, customize orders & fulfill orders to ship out to our clients.

2. We aren’t big on stress. So, while we will expect you to work efficiently and get things done, we focus on open communication and getting things done right the first go around.

3. You will have input in the operations of the company and make decisions on things that no big stuffy company would ever allow you to do. If something can be done better, we want to hear about it.

4. We want the person we hire to learn in this role and grow into new ones. We’ve grown the last few years and plan to keep growing. As such, we want this role to grow with us.

5. We’re flexible. We understand that people have lives outside the office. We work hard to put in place processes that allow us to get our jobs done without our lives being taken over by the job. No one who works here misses a school concert, graduation, or other life event because of their job.

Now, let’s talk about the job requirements:

1. Good organizational & time management skills.
2. Ability to lift heavy objects up to 60lbs.
3. You need to be the type of person who gets joy out of getting things done.
4. Our company isn’t that formal, but we do expect professionalism and punctuality.
5. We expect intelligence, energy, and a get it done attitude. When you have questions, you will find our team is happy to help find the answers.

Finally, exactly what you would be doing:
1. Receive & process warehouse inventory products (weigh, label, store).
2. Prepare & fulfill customer orders to be picked-up according to schedule.
3. Build boxes or pallets for shipment as needed.
4. Build kits involving multiple items
5. Pad print logos on books and materials
6. Follow safety standards; keep a clean & safe working environment.

The goal is to increase efficiency, profitability & customer satisfaction.

In addition to being a detailed person, you must follow systems and processes. In fact, just to prove that you are detailed oriented and can follow procedures, when you apply for this position in the subject line of the email you must include “I’m interested in this job and read the whole job description!” in the subject line. Yep, that’s our little trick to sort out the people who blanket send their resume to anyone and everyone, from the folks (that’s you) who are truly interested in this position.

If for whatever reason your email doesn't go through, you can reach us through the contact form on our website. But please don't call or show up in person. Unfortunately, we always find ourselves hiring when we are at our busiest. Because of the volume of responses we get, we can’t reply to everyone. We’re really sorry about that. But we do read every response and promise we are attempting to give them all the same level of consideration that you put into your responses.
