What is a typical day for a handler?

The material handler (also known as heavy load handler, loader or unloader handler, dock handler) performs the following tasks:
- receiving packages or goods;
- he puts it away;
- it collects products ;
- he packs them in;
- it gathers them in one place;
- he enters information on a computer workstation;
- he cleans the areas where he has worked.

These different stages are carried out several times a day, or over several days, depending on the size of the company and the orders. They take place in a department store, a warehouse, a production plant or a storage platform.

In order to be faster, they sometimes use motorised or non-motorised equipment: hand trucks, forklifts, trolleys, hoists, etc.

What training should I do to become a warehouseman?

There are a number of handler positions around Auch, Condom, Fleurance or Gimont that are accessible without any particular training. A minimum of internal training will be provided.

However, it is still possible to train more specifically through the following initial training courses:
- CAP Warehousing ;
- CAP Professional Packaging ;
- CAP Distribution Sales ;
- CAP Warehousing and Courier Agent ;
- BEP Logistics and Transport ;
- BAC Pro Logistics ;
- Professional title warehouse agent.

Advantages of working as a material handler

The main advantage of the material handler job is that it is very accessible because :
- There is a high demand, many positions are not filled all year round;
- no special training or experience is required;
- the needs are in all territories, rural or not.

Thus, a person who would like to work, for example, in the Gers to avoid moving will probably be able to find a job quickly. Geographical mobility is also possible for those who prefer it.

Other benefits of being a material handler are:
- the possibility of working different shifts (day or night, weekend or not, etc.);
- the possibility of climbing the ladder internally even without a long education;
- the fact that a small amount of experience gained on a temporary basis, even for only a few weeks, can be used to gain experience in another position.

Disadvantages of being a handler

Depending on where it is performed, the job of a materials handler can be physically demanding. It may involve carrying heavy loads with suitable equipment, but it still requires muscle strength and endurance. For some people this is not a disadvantage, as they enjoy physical work.

Others may find the tasks routine. Again, this necessarily depends on the place of work and the tasks that are given
