    I have been working at Brother International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Offer plenty of training to help advance. If you have no drive, you're not going to do well.

    Cons

    HR department has totally restructured. Harder to make contact with that department if an issue arises. Have more or less taken the human out of human resources

    Field Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bridgewater, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Bridgewater, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Brother International in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through at least 4 phone interviews, which were very basic and getting to know one and other but were completely unnecessary considering they were 30 minutes each. The phone interviews that took almost 2 months because they were constantly changing the date and time. After completing the 4 interviews you go in and have to make a presentation on any brother product. This was harder than you think considering how much could you say about a printer without being repetitive and boring. After the presentation you go and meat the VP of sales and if all goes well they offer you the job.

    They also claim its a sales position yet youre actually a field merchandiser for at least a year. This is basically doing tradeshows and presenting the product. You also get no commision. It is 35k salary with driving up to 100 miles a day.

    In my opinion it would save everyone in the process time and money if there were not as many phone interviews. One or two phone interviews is enough before having to go in for a face to face.
