Production, planning, expediting and material recording clerks: all of these positions fall into the category of Scheduler jobs. A Scheduler's responsibilities may include facilitating the flow of work, materials and information between offices or locations within a business. They maintain inventory records of shipped and received items, sort and classify goods, and compile inventory reports. All types of businesses send and receive items so Scheduling jobs can be found in retail stores, manufacturing, wholesale, and all types of business offices from universities to private offices.
A high school diploma is usually the minimum requirement for Scheduler jobs. Some positions may require the use of computers and in those cases previous experience with computers and software programs are a plus, although not necessarily a prerequisite. Most of the tasks are work that can be learned on the job. If you obtain a position as a Scheduler, it could mean up to a six month probationary period during which you'll be trained by a supervisor or fellow employee to prepare you for handling the job on your own.
Scheduler Job Market
Technology is expected to enhance the productivity of Schedulers over the next 10 years so there will be little need for jobs to increase. The good news is that the Bureau of Labor Statistics doesn't project a decline in Scheduler jobs. The BLS reported over 2.8 million Scheduler jobs in 2012 but expect only a one percent growth by 2022.
The median salary for a Scheduler is approximately $24,810. As a Scheduler, you could work toward increasing your value to your employer by taking classes and certification courses to receive additional training and education that may allow you to specialize in a certain area. Production, planning and expediting clerks, for example, are Scheduler jobs that are specialized enough to command a higher median wage, around $43,740.
