We are Thriftbooks
ThriftBooks was created with the goal of bringing the joy and benefit of reading to as many people possible.
Processing Center Roles
Our shipping employees pull books, sort, package and ship customer orders. This fast-paced job requires you to pull books from shelves. You will be using step stools, reaching, bending & carrying books.
Every day, our warehouses receive thousands of books. Our shelvers ensure a continuous, fast-paced flow, moving books from the receiving station to the appropriate shelves. Shelvers also remove aged books to make space for incoming supply.
Sorters quickly inspect large volumes of books for quality, saving those that meet our standards and make sure the receiver’s station is supplied with books at all times.
Receiving involves reviewing hundreds of used books per day then inspecting and rating them for quality. You will see all kinds of books, from a popular James Patterson novel to the latest in self-improvement non-fiction. Experience with 10-key is especially helpful for book receiving, but don’t worry, no 10-key experience, no problem.
As a member of our management team, the Lead is responsible every aspect of oversight, training, safety, reporting and time card management for their department. Depending on the department, you oversee a staff of 5 to 20 employees.
