Stores Clerk II

City Of Sacramento Sacramento , CA 94204

Posted 1 week ago



Under general supervision, performs manual and clerical duties in the receiving, storing, and issuing of a variety of materials and supplies; receives, unpacks, and checks materials; issues and delivers requisitioned materials; assists with counting stock, checking inventory and maintaining records.


This is the journey-level class in the Stores Clerk series. Incumbents in this class perform the full range of duties required of the class. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower class of Stores Clerk I; or, when filled from the outside, require prior stores operation experience. Appointment to the higher class requires that the employee be performing the full range of duties and meet the qualification standards for the class. This class is distinguished from Stores Clerk I by the scope of assignments and the greater independence with which an incumbent is expected to operate. This class may also be distinguished from the higher-level class of Storekeeper because the latter has greater responsibility for independently maintaining and operating an independent storeroom or warehouse and performing more complex duties that involve purchasing and inventory management.
