  • I was hired as a salesperson but the job had nothing to do with sales. ALL merchandising.

    Pros

    There really is great upward mobility within the company. The benefits are normal. i.e. car, laptop, ins, phone, expense card, etc.

    Cons

    This position is labeled as a Sales position when in reality, sales have nothing to do with it. The job requires 50% overnight travel (at least). It entails going to Lowe's/Home Depot (3 a day), going over #'s with store manager, talking to commercial desk, merchandising a failing product (Amerock) in hardware (down 37% nationally), then making sure EVERY single blind sample is in perfect condition (30 or so) if they aren't...it's your duty to repair/replace with no training on how, check to make sure the sample books are intact, going over #'s and repetitively training slackjawed staff and discussing promotions. NOTHING SALES RELATED.

    Advice to Management

    Do not label this as a sales position. It is a merchandising position. Additionally, if merchandising is 95% of the job...develop a metrics rating system to properly track merchandising abilities for pay. It obviously does not matter if the numbers are up.
