Nothing is going to really help you, as far as advise, other than what you will learn in the facility itself. Take note of the methods used by the best workers, because every detail matters to make your job easier and your productivity solid.

Good advice. Don't try and reinvent the wheel. Ask other employees the best way to do things so you save time (and footsteps). If there are forklifts or stockpickers you will probably be required to wear steel toed shoes. Get some good inserts and don't hesitate to pay a little extra up front for better shoes. You don't want bad shoes on a concrete floor. Good luck with the new job!
