    Pros

    Not speaking for everyone. My supervisor was very understanding, allowing me to work a very flexible work schedule to manage things that needed to be taken care of at home.

    Cons

    The company is always changing. New activities being added on, it seems impossible to get it all done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to activities and work hours for people in the field. Activities that take hours combine with your normal activities makes things very difficult and might result in activities not being done correctly.

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work on your own, can somewhat make your own hours if your part time. You get to meet celebrities when they have signings for books or CD's. That's pretty cool. They offer insurance, even if your part time. Sometimes the company sends you free stuff.

    Cons

    Company just wants a body in there to stock shelves. You're in Walmart! Most smell, bathrooms are disgusting, don't feel safe at night. Employees at Walmart are pretty nice, just the clients are the smelly ones. There are midnight releases and some Saturdays. Lug heavy boxes back and forth. Search the back room for your stuff, which is scattered everywhere.

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

    Pros

    The starting pay is awesome, the training is effective, and I've always been a fan of getting my work done early in the morning. I worked in various Best Buy stores, and it's nice to have flexibility in terms of which store you work at. Getting free DVDs in the mail was also pretty cool.

    Cons

    The district manager I worked under was great, but I had good and bad experiences with different co-workers. I had amazing hours (30-35) for part-time while I worked in Phoenix, but once I moved to Flag, I got cut to less than ten a week. I also had mixed experiences with the Best Buy staff; some were assistive and positive, but others, including some managers, were generally unpleasant. Plus, the whole not getting a discount on Best Buy purchases made me feel ostracized from their team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the biggest issue is addressing the differences between Anderson and Best Buy staff, and helping to foster a positive relationship between those teams.

    Pros

    Work at your own pace. Build communication skills

    Cons

    Company transitioning is hard on the employees when changing into new companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should provide more training in the transitioning of new company. Not having steady hours is hard on staff.

    Pros

    Super flexible work schedule you pretty much get to decide how many hours you want to work and when you want to work if your part time. You primarily work by yourself and there is very little supervision over this position. You get to decide what work your going and how long your going to take to that specific job/activity.

    Cons

    You will be over worked, each week there are over 50 jobs, activities to do in each store so will have to bust you butt to get everything done each week. As a part timer you get no benefits, no holiday pay or holidays off, no overtime unless you work over 40 hours in a single week, and you will have to work special shifts throughout the year such as overnights, midnight releases, and yes you have to work at midnight on black friday. As part time you are responsible for the same responsibilities as the full time representative but for far less pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to create better training procedures for new hires, lots of new hire turnover because there is a lack of training before the new hire is supposed to be able to work alone. Pay more competitively to part timers, there is no difference between a part timer and a full timer other than the hours worked so why does full timer get around $22 an hour and part time get paid minimum wage?
