compensation: $13-$15/hour plus benefits
employment type: full-time

Job Description:
This position is responsible and accountable for the accurate preparation of seafood product shipments and receptions, as well as accurate packaging, storing, and record keeping of new products generated by Cape Seafood. The position is also responsible and accountable for the accuracy of all paperwork associated with production processes and/or the duties described below. This job will require an individual to think on their feet so they can accomplish tasks and responsibilities in a timely and efficient manner. Your success will depend on your ability to learn the right and efficient ways to handle the jobs set before you.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:
Order Fulfillment
• Work with the team to pack and ship the product orders onto trucks. Product lot codes and weights tracking are required from start to finish in this process.
• Create Bills of Ladings (BOLs) for each shipment and ensure that there is no variance from the orders to be shipped. The BOL must represent and account for exactly what is being shipped every time.

Conduction of Thawing Procedure
• Work with the team to prepare seafood products for thawing as needed by customer orders, getting the necessary product types and amounts thawed to fulfill the order request. This will require basic math to calculate how many cases and partial cases are required for thawing.

Again, weights and lot codes must be accounted for from beginning to end in this process. It will be the responsibility of the person(s) handling product to note the lot codes and weights either in designated logs or on BOLs.

Inventory Control Process
• Verify that product taken from the freezers matches what was expected for shipment (thawed and/or frozen product on orders).
• Take care to account for product received accurately. If the received Bill of Lading is illegible, count the product and submit it alongside the original Bill of Lading.
• Assist in inventory counts for products held in Cape Seafood's freezers.
• Record all new products generated in the daily Labeling Log, broken down by product type, product lot code, and total weight.
