Warehouse Assistant Manager

Baltimore, MD Halethorpe, Maryland


ThriftBooks is the world’s largest used book retailer! We believe reading empowers people, offering them empathy to live for a moment in someone else’s shoes, offers them education, a critical asset to improving one’s life, and offers an occasional escape to fantastic worlds inhabited by interesting characters. Yes, we save millions of books every year from being destroyed, but our mission goes beyond the environment. We save these books and make them accessible to readers for the chance to shape another mind, share another story, and teach a bit of wisdom.

With warehouses across North America, ThriftBooks has brought scale and innovation to processing and selling used books. Each used book is sorted, graded, putaway and fulfilled in ways the industry has never used. At ThriftBooks, we believe in the person, not just the resume.
