The employees from the warehouse section (Section A) consisting of 25 members will continue with their daily duties as usual. The duties involve reviewing each book purchased during the buyback events to determine its condition, inputting the textbook information into the company’s database, storing the textbooks until they are resold from the distribution center and transporting the textbooks to the distribution center (Section B).
