Re: Warehouse Manager (Job #: XXXX), advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. XXX:
I was intrigued when I found your warehouse manager job posting, as I know I could positively contribute to your operation. Since earning my promotion to warehouse manager for XYZ Company’s 35,000-square-foot distribution center three years ago, I have received consistent commendations for achieving gains in productivity, safety and efficiency -- accomplished during a time of significant budget cuts.
Your warehouse operation would benefit from my proven success in:
Launching 5S and other lean-manufacturing programs to elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of the distribution center.
Overseeing inventory management, stock controls, pick/pack operations, and order processing for high-volume shipping and receiving operations.
Supervising and scheduling unionized workforces of up to 20 employees per shift within a 24x7 environment.
Developing and leading training programs to improve employee productivity, job satisfaction and workplace morale.
Accelerating order fulfillment to achieve a 28% reduction in order-processing time, which helped retain and grow business from key accounts.
recently learned that my employer plans to close the Indianapolis distribution
center later this year. It offered me a warehouse manager position at its
Minneapolis site, but family responsibilities prevent me from relocating at
