    Pros

    flexibility of work schedule unless working on team project; have met many interesting people at store level

    Cons

    as noted in other reviews-raises are non-existent-not even so much as a nickel after more than a year with company. Inconsistent work load-some weeks lighter load-other times unrealistic number of projects must be completed within the same time frame.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay to attract and retain better employees; staff to the level of new business coming in

    I have been working at Driveline Retail Merchandising

    Pros

    The ability to make your own schedule and work at your own pace is good. I enjoy that as I have a tendenacy to buckle down when at work and just try to get the job done as efficiently as possible, which means most of the time I'm not waiting around with nothing to do at stores.

    Cons

    Never receive any hours, no contact from the district manager, can never get him to answer the phone. When hired I was told I would be assigned specific stores to take care of, within a week however the girl who was to give up those stores refused so I was tossed around begging for hours, only receiving 2-8 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with personnel when you are contacted, don't pass off scheduling duties to other merchandisers. If things change after you hire someone, notify them personally instead of leaving them in limbo.

    Pros

    Variety of different types of Merchandising, ie..Mass, Dept. Store, Drug and Grocery

    Cons

    Low pay, low respect and very little cooperation with Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Pick up some higher end accounts, hire some good people and pay them well. Every Merchandiser I meet has worked a minute for Driveline.

    Pros

    Flexible hrs, not much micro managing. Though you will have to show work to store location mgrs. for approval signature. Some are a pain and keep your records for at least a year. They will go back that far and say you didn't do what you were suppose to.

    Cons

    Low pay, no benefits, no mileage pay that covers what you actually drive and matches the ever changing gas prices. Hours are often low too low its not worth your driving. Never got a raise but did receive an evaluation that was never discussed. Mgmnt is no help with your territory str mgrs. They have to tell them they don't want you back for you to stop going. Lot of work during busy season and not enough time. You get penalized when late and can eventually lose your stores. Pay is a little better than some in retail but not enough for the work you do in territories.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your employees when they visit your store locations in there territory. Pay drive time and gas mileage. What you pay now don't begin to cover. Pay better and give raises.

    Pros

    Meet some nice people. Work your available hours

    Cons

    Watch your payroll. Driveline doesn't always paid correct amount. No pay for training or computer time. This include work orders or reporting your job. Be prepared to send alot on printer paper and ink at your expense.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a problem in the field or reporting a project, don't call field support because they rrfer you back to your DM and they tell you if they answer the phone to call field support. Biggest run around ever. Maybe the company should work on employee relationship and honesty.

    Pros

    most of the time your schedule is flexible although not always

    Cons

    low pay, no training, no communication from manager, low mileage pay, some weeks you have no jobs. They give jobs to ppl who have been with company longer and often those are the same ppl doing jobs late every single week!

    Advice to Management

    On the job training with a team job or a regular team leader. Watching videos online doesn't teach you how to do the job properly

    Pros

    Job is easy. Flexible schedule. Working without someone hanging on your shoulder. Can get stuff done quickly if you know what you are doing.

    Cons

    no training at all. no room for advancement, cleaning up after people that cannot do the job. And no overtime at all. Even if you go over on a project. There is no way to maying aure that every one is doing what they should. Its using the honor system.
