This job requires plenty of physical strength to lift and push all types of containers, including heavy packages. However, package handlers must be careful handling shipments and follow company policies to avoid damage.

Arborists care for trees and create designs for park layouts. Their responsibilities often include trimming, pruning, fertilizing, cabling, and bracing shrubs and trees. They may also supervise a crew. Some employers require arborists to have a certification in landscape design or a related field, but many jobs only require on-the-job training to teach new arborists how to work with the equipment, depending on local requirements.
