Pick packers sort out goods and label them for distribution. This can be done via unloading, like off trains or trucks, or in warehouses, processing orders made online or over the phone. Thanks to the explosion of online stores and shopping, pick packing is a commonly available job great for those who want to work odd hours around studying or as easy, casual money while travelling.
As an unskilled vocation, pick packing requires no formal education or particular talent. However, to be competent at the job you will need attention to detail, some organisational abilities, and take great care with your posture and physical limitations.
While most pick packing jobs won’t have you lifting objects over 25-30kg, the repetitive motion and stress of moving objects can take its toll. People looking for pick packing work should take care when on the job.
