    Merchandiser Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Convergence Marketing in March 2014.

    Interview

    the phone interviewer sounded as if she had a margarita lunch followed by an Ambien dessert. She rambled on about everything but the job for entirely too long. She went into an extended coughing fit that concluded the interview. Email correspondences from the get-go are riddled with typos and grammatical errors, which require deciphering to understand the message. And this isn't specific to one person – every person I have interacted with through this company could benefit from a refresher course on English grammar, to say the least.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Convergence Marketing (Baltimore, MD) in September 2013.

    Interview

    it's over the phone as they're based in MD, They asked if I had set up displays in retail before and if I had transportation. I was told most jobs would be 1 day to 1 week restting store.

    Negotiation

    they offered me 10.00 then 11.50 an hour. I was misled by the interview because once I got in contact with their cosmetics manager, she sent me endless one hour jobs (they call Blitz work) to my email. The jobs were 50 miles one way from my home for 10.00 an hour before taxes and no mileage. I told her many times I would not be able to take those jobs and she kept sending them. The training (all online) states that the employee is who looks for blitz work in their area and can take it if desired. The only work that was to be assigned was resets in stores that ranged from 8 hours to one week. That never happened.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Convergence Marketing in December 2011.

    Interview

    Easiest interview ever. Give them your experience (be brief, they probably aren't even listening) and sound like you have some sense. The seasonal work makes Convergence reach high turnaround before every season, so if you're getting an interview, they are probably already desperate for people.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask if you can read a planogram..... if you've ever done more in a retail store than be a cashier, you should be okay.   Answer Question

    Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Texarkana, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Convergence Marketing (Texarkana, TX) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Convergence contacted me via an online job site from a resume' I had posted. A phone interview was done, confirming things like an insured car, a digital camera, internet access, cell phone. All those things are needed in your work but you have to provide them the company does not. After achieving interest via the phone interview a new hire packet is mailed to you, application, tax papers, company info etc. Complete all of that return it and you get a rep number so you can log into the company site and begin to accept work. I never met a supervisor face to face all work has been done via the company site, email and cell phone. I have worked with other reps in stores many times and also alone many times.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall them playing a 'gotcha' tactic. They were very straightforward and ethical in the interview/hiring process. One of the most pleasant interview experiences I've ever had.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Terms were outlined as boilerplate, work offered was optional at any time, you pick the gigs. So there was no negotiation.
