Logistics apprentice , i start work normally around 4.30 , 5.30 we go through all of the different sections in the warehouse and learn new roles from scanning stock to checking pallets. On every department you have responsibilities e.g at the moment i am in the chiller i come in then scan the stock i take the pallets into the chiller and then sometimes start picking or back stacking the pallets.
