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.
