Some Specifics of Pulling an Order

Trying to grab something just within my reach isn't so bad, compared to the items that are 10 feet above this. The only way to get them is to stand on the forks of the forklift and ride that up to the top of the shelf. On the forklifts, there are very few warnings, but one of the specific ones is DON'T RIDE ON THE FORKS!

Here's the process of getting one item. First, it has to be found. This is no small task; at times it can take half an hour.

Next, this twelve foot long box must be pulled out of it's place. It doesn't really have a specific slot, rather, it's sorta wedged nearby where the permanent marker text states it should be.

Up on the cart it goes.

Alot of times an order won't call for the exact amount that comes in a box of an item, so it must be taken in loose peices. If that's the case, then it has to be wrapped up in cellophane so it won't be a mess.
