- When items come in, count the cases, make sure it’s the correct brand name, if incorrect, do not accept it, or if case is damaged in anyway, do not accept it.
- As each item is being brought in, place a check by it to show that all of the items have been received.
- When everything has been brought in off the truck, all of your grocery items should have a check beside them and all the items on the invoice should have a check.
- If there are items that don’t have a check beside them, ask the driver if they are on the truck. If they are not, you are to circle the item and cost, initial and write, “Not on truck” and have the driver initial it also
- Anything not having a check beside it needs to be back ordered through Debbie.
- Enter the invoice on the computer the day you receive it. The invoice total must match with the computer, if not look and find the difference.
- Place grocery items on the shelf, Mark the price and date on all items received. Commodity is in red marker, purchase is in blue or black marker.
