The warehouse and storage industry exists to keep manufactured goods safe and accounted for through well-maintained facilities. Warehouse jobs involve many different positions within the facility, depending on its size, as well as the amount of materials and type of accommodations (refrigerated, dry climate required, etc.) required.

The large majority of warehouse work is found within private industries, but can also be found within local, state and federal governments.
