Packer Jobs

Packer Job Overview

Packers are responsible for packaging items for shipping and delivery to companies and customers. In the manufacturing industry, packers often work with delicate parts and components, including electronics and computer parts. The workers spend long hours on their feet, and they are responsible for packaging the items in such a way that the parts won't break during shipping. Packers can work for companies that ship items to stores and other companies, or they can work for companies that ship items directly to customers’ homes. After gaining some experience, packers have the skills needed to work in advanced manufacturing jobs, including positions such as material handlers and assemblers and fabricators.

Packer Job Education Requirements

Packers do not require any special type of education, and many companies hire those with a high school diploma or a GED certificate and no other formal education. Some companies look for employees with some experience in the manufacturing industry, but other companies hire recent high school graduates. Workers need to feel comfortable sitting, standing and leaning, and they must also have the ability to lift heavy objects and carry heavy boxes and materials. While employers will give workers breaks from packing boxes, employees must have the ability to work with heavy equipment and objects for hours at a time.

Packer Job Market

According to statistics, there were approximately 47,410 workers packing boxes for warehouse and storage companies and an additional 26,430 packers working for grocery and product wholesalers in 2013. More than 21 percent of packer jobs were in food manufacturing fields. It is believed that the number of positions in this field will rise by 1 percent in the coming years while the salary of employees will rise by 0.3 percent. These figures are lower than what other industries report or believe will happen in the next decade. If the number of manufacturers opening factories in the United States keeps growing, there will be more positions available for packers in the future.

Packer Salary

Packers make an average of $9.60 an hour. Some workers report making as much as $16.25 an hour, and there are some salaried employees making $33,800 a year.
