Amazon Grocery Warehouse Associate
You’ll be part of the Amazon grocery team that supports one of Amazon’s busiest services: online grocery orders. You’ll be working in a grocery warehouse, but it’s not like our other bigger buildings, it’s more like the size of a grocery store. Customers can choose everything from cereal to ice cream to fresh flowers, so you’ll be preparing orders, working in different environments – including refrigerated and freezer spaces for part of your shift. It can be cold, but we’ll provide you with the right gear to stay warm.

Some of your duties may include:
Prepare grocery orders for delivery
Use technology like computers, smartphones, manage apps, and scan bar codes
Intake new grocery inventory and put away
Check for order quality

You’ll also need to be able to:
Lift up to 49 pounds
Work in temperatures as low as -10°F and up to 90°F for extended periods
Stand, walk, push, pull, squat, bend, and reach during shifts
Use carts, dollies, hand trucks, and other gear to move items around
Go up and down stairs (where applicable)
Handle a variety of products – including meat and alcohol
