What specifically did Archie Bunker do for a living?

I know he worked for the Prendergast Tool and Die Company in Manhattan, but what was his job title? In some episodes I got the impression he was a truck loader, while in others he drove a forklift, while in others still i think he was a foreman. Am I getting this mixed-up with something else?

    He was a shipping administrator, I think. In one episode, he was docked in his pay because he shipped something to London, England, instead of London, Ontario, so he sounds like a foreman or administrator. Not management, though.

    While flushing is a specific town in Queens, the post office calls any area that has a zipcode that starts with 113xx flushing. I always thought it was Astoria.

    In some episodes he drove a cab, so maybe he was a "Jack of all trades, master of none."
