How To Become A Stock Clerk
Many companies and organizations that provide products to consumers must have a constant supply and stock of products. Stock clerks are trained workers that control the flow of incoming and outgoing products in stockrooms and warehouses. Stock clerks usually need at least a high school diploma or GED. Most learn their skills through on the job training. Stock clerks should have basic mathematical, reading, and writing skills. Many begin their careers by completing simple tasks under the supervision of experience workers. Employment of stock clerks is expected to decline moderately, decreasing 8% from 2006 to 2016. The increasing use of computers and automated equipment for controlling inventory will contribute to the job decline.
