— The IKEA dis­tri­bu­tion cen­ter ware­house in Per­ryville will hold a job fair to hire ware­house su­per­vi­sors on Wed­nes­day.

The fair is sched­uled to be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at 100 Ikea Way, said Cara Cor­drey, spokesper­son with the Per­ryville dis­tri­bu­tion ware­house.

“The ware­house su­per­vi­sor role is crit­i­cal to our busi­ness op­er­a­tions work­ing smoothly,” said Eric Poli, Per­ryville

PER­RYVILLE

deputy ware­house man­ager. “At the job fair, we will be look­ing for in­di­vid­u­als who are lead­ers, who like work­ing with teams and know how to mo­ti­vate their team to meet the or­ga­ni­za­tional goals.”

The com­pany is look­ing for peo­ple with one to three years of su­per­vi­sor ex­pe­ri­ence, prefer­ably in a ware­house or lo­gis­tics en­vi­ron­ment, and it is a plus to have knowl­edge of ware­house man­age­ment sys­tems, such as Astro and Gem­ini sys­tems, Cor­drey said. She said these soft­ware sys­tems are used to help man­age stock.

The job in­cludes as­sign­ing work for ware­house co­work­ers, man­ag­ing teams of em­ploy­ees and train­ing co­work­ers, among other re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to the IKEA web­site.

Cor­drey said those in­ter­ested will be given an in­forma- tional pre­sen­ta­tion, a ques­tion and an­swer por­tion and then a mini tour of a ware­house. The process will take about 45 min­utes from start to fin­ish, she said.

Those who are in­ter­ested in the job will have the chance to sign for in­ter­views, as well, Cor­drey said.

Cor­drey said peo­ple can also visit the IKEA web­site and ap­ply online and do not have to wait for the job fair.
