Re: Warehouse Manager (Job #: 5587), advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Smith:

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 efficiencyaccomplished 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.
  • Upgrading SAP warehouse management systems to improve inventory management and distribution accuracy.
  • 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.

I 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 this time.

If you agree that my qualifications perfectly match your requirements, please call me at (555) 555-5555 to arrange an interview. Thank you for considering my credentials, and I look forward to learning more about this exciting opportunity.

Sincerely,



Patrick Abrams
