Warehouseman Interview Questions and Answers

What duties have you been performing in your present / previous position as a warehouseman?
As a warehouseman, I have been busy looking through work orders to determine which orders need to be picked, picking and checking orders for conformity, wrapping and labeling ordered items, transporting them to delivery pallets, loading them onto awaiting vehicles or containers, and ensuring that documentation is provided with each of them.

What skills do you possess which make you an excellent individual to hire as a warehouseman?
I possess great insight into warehouse work, which includes handling both incoming and outgoing shipments. To provide you with some detail, I am exceptionally well-versed in using warehouse locator systems to identify storage areas where each ordered item is placed, and I can pick and pack orders according to provided instructions. Moreover, I am a professional when it comes to creating the right type of documentation and paperwork required for each outgoing shipment.

How does it feel to work in an environment that is as fast-paced as a warehouse?
I enjoy working in fast-paced environments, as there is a lot to do in them. Slow ones can easily bore me, although I do enjoy slow work days now and then, but wouldn’t want them to be a constant.

In your opinion, what is the most challenging thing about working as a warehouseman?
I believe that the work poses challenges on the whole, and no one part of it can be considered as difficult. However, keeping a balance between inventory management and stocking sometimes leads to problems that need to be sorted immediately.

Till now, what has been the most challenging day of your professional life?
Last year in June, the warehouse received an uncharacteristically large order, and it so happened that ten warehousemen were down with the summer flu. That left six other warehousemen and me to do the job of picking, packing, and shipping out 500 orders in 5 hours. That, I believe has been the most challenging day of my professional life till now.

What are your future aspirations, as far as your career is concerned?
I am gradually learning the inner workings of warehouses, and would eventually want to work as a warehouse supervisor.
