Job Details

"Sorting" involves gathering products ordered by each store from our warehouses and putting them together for delivery to our stores.
"Sorting" is very straightforward work. Communication in Japanese is necessary to some extent at the work site, however, you can do this job without difficulty even if reading Japanese is not your strong point. Take centers where product sorting is conducted by bar code for example. At these centers, when you scan a product's barcode with a code reader, the destination of the ordered product lights up. From there, all you need to do is to put the indicated number of products into the case. This task is done repeatedly. Finally, you gather the collected products and prepare them for loading onto each delivery truck. We offer training that is both detailed and easy to understand. Additionally, our senior staff will provide you with steady support as you get used to the job. Rest assured that you will be well cared for.
