The main job duty of a grocery stocker is to keep the shelves stocked at the store. Associated job duties can also include changing price stickers to ensure that products reflect sales fliers and putting up merchandise displays.

Grocery stockers do not generally need any particular education; a high school diploma may not even be required. Thirty-nine percent of grocery stockers have between 2 and 5 years' experience. It is possible for those with no experience to be hired as the position is considered entry level. Grocery stockers typically report directly to a manager.
