Inventory Checker

Publix Associate

To provide a continuous supply of products to Publix customers, it's critical to know what product is on-hand and where it is located in the warehouse. Inventory Checkers make sure warehouse records list accurate quantities of products so that products can flow efficiently from the warehouse to the stores.

How to Apply


Inventory Checkers count, verify, and record product quantities received and held within Publix warehouses. They use mobile computers to accurately count the inventory on hand, and on occasion, use motorized equipment to navigate the maze of products in the warehouse. Inventory Checkers help to maintain a clear picture of exactly how many products the warehouses have or need to support Publix stores.
