KEY ROLE ACCOUNTABILITIES
You will show up to work at the warehouse, based on designation from manager, on time, in the appropriate attire, and with the necessary tools needed to complete the tasks assigned by your manager. At the warehouse you will be responsible for physically and systematically preparing items to be transferred, receive in deliveries, and maintain a high level of inventory accuracy. This will set you and your internal customers (warehouses) up for success.
As we continue to expand our distribution network, you will be responsible for assisting in the set up of new distribution centers, training the staff on the proper procedures and ensuring smooth and successful startups. The Distribution Warehouse Managers will report directly to the Corporate Distribution Center Manager, so travel will be necessary to develop a successful team.
When communication is received from either the scheduling team, ordering team, warehouses or regional leadership prompt action is required. Communication will mostly pertain to transfers of stock material from the corporate hubs. It will be paramount that the Corporate Distribution Center Manager helps to manage the transfer requests for all hubs, ensures all transfers are executed appropriately and conducts any necessary follow up. These steps are all critical in supporting the growth of West Shore Home and ensuring we achieve our mission and bring happiness to every home.

The Corporate Distribution Center Manager will be responsible for ensuring all receipts to the hubs are closed out within 24 hours of delivery and any overages, shortages or damages should be reported within 48 hours. Proper verification of purchase orders includes accurately signing the BOL for items/pallets received, unpacking of the products, and verifying contents against a packing list and reporting any issues. The purchase orders items should be received in correctly against what was verified as delivered. Communication should be sent to the ordering team to follow up with vendors on any issues.
Warehouse organization and cleanliness will be one of the key responsibilities of the Corporate Distribution Center Manager. Organization and cleanliness will be the foundation to a well-managed corporate distribution center to operate safely and efficiently. It is up to the Corporate Distribution Center Manager to drive continuous improvement efforts with their team and always look for ways to do things better!
