    Pros

    You get to work your own hours (within limitation) there is always new projects, everyday is different from being in a different store to the projects that change from week to week.

    Cons

    Communication is distant and exceptions are high. There is a lot of work to accomplish in a 40 hr work week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could take better care of field employees, They do more for there corporate in office employees and nothing for those in the field.

    I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers full-time for less than a year

    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 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Consistently changing and keeps you learning new things.
    -Very flexible with your time as long as you complete all projects.
    -Pay is ok.
    -Technology sometimes makes things a lot easier and helps you be more effective.

    Cons

    -Expectations are very unrealistic at times.
    -Sometimes there are projects that are dropped on you at the last minute and you have to get them done but cannot go over your time.
    -Changes your pay structure sometimes without notice.
    -Says they are growing but then lay people off because of the "new direction".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Take care of the amazing associates you have. Take care of the great employees you have and not think that you can get a better employee for a cheaper compensation.
    -Talk to your managers and associates and help them understand the direction. Give them a purpose and the correct information to complete their task successfully. Way to many "I do not know or I can't talk about its"

    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.
