Typically, when you think of working in a warehouse the first things that come to mind are the jobs of packing goods and unloading them. Whilst these operations are still essential, there are many other roles involved such as forklift operators, computer system analysts, data managers, as well as general management. Forklift operator roles involve moving objects from one location to another using a powered industrial truck. This requires you to complete a safety course and obtain a forklift license to be able to drive the truck in a warehouse. To work as a computer system analyst or data manager, you would need a high school diploma, knowledge of using computers, and at least two years of warehouse experience.
