  3. I gained a lot of experience working here but the company needs to treat employees better.

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They work early in the morning and you're off in the early afternoon. They are also very flexible with hours and schedules.

    Cons

    There are too high of expectations for their short shifts and employees do not have adequate time to complete given tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Budget more time for us to be in the stores. A lack of time in the store has led to strained relationships with each individual store

    Pros

    Expanding heavily and lots of room to grow. Pay is good for retail industry. Progressive management.

    Cons

    Sometimes company changes so much you can get displaced. Benefits can be lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your DMs. They do most of the real work in this company and often do not have a voice depending on who's upstream.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, hands-off management, casual attire

    Cons

    Not a lot to do at some stores, part-time position with no way to go full-time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're waisting a lot of money on part time employees who must stay at a store for 4+ hours when they have little to nothing to do.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule- Free movies every now and then That's All

    Cons

    Pay sucks $15/hr ft, $11 pt mileage reimbursement $.32 natl avg $.42, accepts any job offered w/o proper personal or knowledge and management VERY dishonest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How can employees be considered in sales & no type of commission offered only D.M.'s receive, at least Walmart give out bonus checks. To be effective hire more personnel rather than short changing clients. Pay enough to make a decent living if person going to work more than 3 stores a week.

    Pros

    Adjustable scedules. Movies sent by studios are a nice little perk.

    Cons

    Manager tells associates to lie on surveys. A manager will tell an employee to take a picture and lie about its location. Managers often tell associates to lie about amount of time spent on a particular task.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check up on the way your managers are treating your associates.

    Pros

    every day is something different, new challenges, new people. Fast paced, technology is very efficient

    Cons

    work-life balance doesn't exist. Upper management says one thing, does another. Restructure promised everyone a position, until there isn't one available. Sorry-business decision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take your own advise and have the difficult decisions and conversations
