    Could be better, but could be worse...

    Team Leader and Master Merchandiser (Former Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsVery flexible schedule!!!!!!!! If you can't complete your work, you just let your manager know and they will fix everything for you.

    ConsI'm sure you can move up but the job itself is unorganized and I didn't see any career development opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen people work on a project as a team, the start times should be enforced more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It is a not a job for everyone

    Master Merchandiser (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsThe more you are willing to work and the better you preform the more work you get. It allows for a flexible schedule most of the time.

    ConsYou do not get reimbursed for your paper and ink and such. Mileage is paid very low. The rate of pay is in the low side.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better and you would get better work, also give an allowance for supplies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Current Employee

    Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee) Waco, TX

    ProsMake your own schedule, Great for gas money

    Conslittle pay, little hours. Not enough work

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to get assignments that take longer than a half an hour to complete, sometimes the employee has to drive an hour to complete something that only takes 25min.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    So far, so good!!

    Master Merchandiser (Current Employee)

    ProsAbility to set your own schedule (for the most part). Love work in a different location everyday.

    ConsDo not always pay for adjusted travel time or mileage. Does not pay for admin time at the end of the day

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould pay for at least 10 minutes admin time per assignment. That would help cover the cost of paper and ink for printing assignment detail (Must Prints). Allow reps to adjust travel time and mileage due to weather or road conditions (construction).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No Consistency of workload.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsVariety of weekly projects. Work page on internet is user friendly. I have a great DM is why I am still here.

    ConsMileage reimbursement at .25 cents per mile and losing the first 40 miles of every trip is absurd, especially with today's gas prices. Not realistic nor an incentive to continue with company unless you drive a hybrid or motorcycle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognition of those who undertake more responsibility and locations by salary increase and level of advancement without having to request it and waiting months on a decision. Take care of your people and they will take care of you.

    Have low expectations

    Retail Merchandiser (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- Flexible schedule; set your own schedule
    - Usually work independently
    - Get to work in different locations
    - Can usually get time off when requested
    - Overall, hassle-free environment

    Cons- Extremely low pay
    - Have to use your own vehicle for assignments but won't get reimbursed unless you drive over 40 miles, so there's a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle.
    - No benefits or supplemental medical/dental
    - Very little to no training. You're pretty much expected to learn as you go even if you've never done a particular assignment before.
    - No performance reviews given so you're unaware of your progress or lack thereof
    - Requires a lot of printing and there's no reimbursement for printing costs

    Advice to Senior Management- Should at least provide some training. Could provide instructional videos on each assignment when required to complete certifications. Could also consider having a mentor accompany you on all first-time assignments to ensure jobs are done consistently and accurately.
    - Should consider either increasing pay or implementing a printing/mileage reimbursement program to supplement the operating expenses required to conduct assignments. This is especially true since employees receive no medical benefits.
    - Should also make job board more user friendly by reducing the amount of paper needed to take to stores. Can do this by posting one set of instructions if working in multiple stores.

    Glad I left

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsIt's a small company feel and relatively easy to get face time with management. Depending on who you report to, time off can be easy.

    ConsThey ONLY care about bottom line, even if it means cutting valuable employees. They generally disrespect their employees and customers and have horrible communication skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management needs to realize they are nothing without their employees and customers. Giving adequate notice for all benefit related issues would be appreciated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Okay Place to Work

    Merchandiser (Current Employee)

    ProsAssignments are easy
    Team mates are friendly
    Assignments are close to home
    Some scheduling flexibility

    ConsNo formal training program, often left to figure out resets individually
    Time studies not accurate for assignments given - some require more time
    May cram too many assignments on the same day

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould consider implementing a new hire training program for first week on the job to get acclimated to various assignments and assigned stores before sending new person on individual assignments with time constraints.
