“The most attractive part of being a team member here at C3 is the environment. I’m a part of a team that’s invested in what they do and this allows me to live out my passion every day.” – Jeff, Mechanical Engineer
Without Receiving, we’d never make a product. Without Shipping, our work would never leave our door.
We are an engineering firm designing and manufacturing equipment for the foam and mattress industry.
We’re ingrained in one of the most disruptive industries of the past few years. Our equipment allows mattresses to compress and roll into a bag or box for shipment. This innovation has revolutionized the bedding industry, especially for ecommerce. We’re one of a handful of OEM’s in this field and it’s changing the way foam is manufactured, handled, shipped, and delivered to the hands of customers.
Day in the Life of a Shipping & Receiving Material Leader
The Shipping and Receiving Leader leads our Shipping and Receiving team of five employees to handle materials in and out of our two facilities. They manage related workflows and ensure accuracy of all shipments, inventory, kitting, and corresponding paperwork for domestic and international shipments. All while maintaining an accessible, safe, and orderly facility.
They’re experts in:
- Ensuring accuracy of shipments, including materials, paperwork, and scheduling.
- Driving a fork lift, operating a pallet jack, and other light equipment.
- Managing inventory as it’s received and shipped.
- Leading material flow efficiency and work schedules to accomodate goals.
- Aligning with other departments to ensure on-time shipments and deliveries.
We’re looking for someone with 3+ years experience leading and supervising a team, 3-5 years working in a warehousing/manufacturing environment, and 1-3 years experience in processing paperwork like requisitions, purchase orders, invoices, packing slips, scheduling trucks, and bill of lading/freight tags.
Our Shipping & Receiving team works with many other departments within our business. This means you’ll need to be a clear communicator and keep your ducks in a row to keep things flowing smoothly. We also are in the process of implementing a new ERP system, therefore experience working with ERP systems is a must.
The Leader is regularly required to stand, walk, stoop, kneel, crouch or crawl. You’ll regularly lift and/or move objects up to 15 pounds, frequently lift and/or move objects of 50 pounds with occasional capacity to lift more. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential function.
What It’s Like to Work at C3
Our facility and our staff have doubled in the past year. We’ve maintained our value of hard work and that culture has grown with us. We’re not your average manufacturing plant with dark workspaces and greasy handles. We’ve got finesse:
Our equipment is assembled in the same area as shipping and receiving. It’s bright and clean, reflecting the image our machinery portrays when it’s being showcased to a customer.
We also just expanded into a second warehouse facility ten miles West of our main location. The shipping and receiving team mans this space as well, making sure inventory stays organized and parts are received and shipped on time. You’ll be in charge of all of the above.
Help Us Ship Great Work
We’re looking forward to meeting someone who is a motivated leader and is looking to maintain a continually-improving warehouse operations. We want to hire someone who has a track record of successful shipments; who enjoys the pressure of 100%-on-time delivery and accurate inventory. Someone who’s able to rally our team to send off our equipment with pride.
