Ready to love your job?

Becker’s School Supplies is 91 years old, but we’re the most vibrant 91-year-old you ever met!  Customers love shopping at ShopBecker.com, and our people enjoy working here.  So, even at 91, we’re still growing.  We’re now ready to hire a Logistics Coordinator.  Is that you?

Join a team of motivated, forward-thinking professionals, working in a high-energy atmosphere, while enjoying the stability and benefits of an established family business. Becker’s School Supplies, headquartered in Pennsauken, NJ is a distributor and value-added reseller of educational supplies, equipment, and furniture to early childhood centers, public and private schools, teachers, and parents. Becker’s has a 6,500-item product catalog and an expanding e-commerce business, all supported by our exceptional purchasing, sales, distribution, marketing, and customer service teams.

 
We are ready to enhance our talented and highly experienced purchasing team with a smart, energetic Logistics Coordinator. 

This is a year-round full-time position with awesome benefits at our corporate headquarters. 

At Becker’s, you will be in the presence of enthusiastic and occasionally loud colleagues who get seriously excited about their work.  We have a comfortable dress code that allows you to wear jeans, business casual, and any color socks.  You will be surrounded by, encouraged, coached, and pumped up by coworkers from all generations and styles, some balding, some completely bald, some professionally coiffed, some a hot mess, and some who think casual office attire means flip flops.  Hey, if our new logistics expert negotiates cost-effective freight agreements and policies, saving us a ton of money, and he or she wants to wear flip flops, that’s cool with us.  All we care about are the work and the attitude.  If you’re the real deal and you’re a nice person, you’re in!
