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

    Pros

    I enjoyed being able to travel to different stores. Working with management and customers.

    Cons

    They expect to much to be done & not enough time. Sales leads are stressed & I was verbally abused several times.
    DM never truly knew or understood & or did not care that Sales lead was not doing her job & trying to deal with her was like pulling teeth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within!!! If you see someone who does a good job pay them & promote them! Take what your part-time help tells you & look into it.
    It's hard to find dedicated honest people who are willing to work this at sometimes stressful job.

    You're not important until at least 90 days have passed

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers full-time

    Pros

    Free books, movies and CD's from time to time.

    Cons

    No paid vacation, benefits or respect until you've been around for at least 90 days- sometimes a year, depending on your position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on getting more progressive with your HR policies if you want to attract/retain quality talent.

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free movies, interesting contests.. They do put you up in nice hotels when you have to go out of town, but other than that there isn't much else the company does for its field associates.

    Cons

    Outdated equipment, training sucks, they don't listen to field employees, and peanuts for pay. Training is mediocre at best, store management doesn't care what you have to say, even if you are trying to give them good advice in regards to their media department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to listen to the people in the field.

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

    Pros

    A little bit spending money.

    Cons

    Outrageously unreasonable workload, very low pay vs. responsibilities. Anderson's people are now the company reps for Glidden Paints, Post Cereal, Vilore Foods, and a number of lesser companies. All of this, and the accompanied responsibilities, and I left after 4 years at $9.69/hour. No holiday pay for working on Thanksgiving, which is mandatory. Walmart managers are abusive to merchandisers, but Anderson always sides with the Walmart manager, no matter how outrageous the abuses are. Only take a position with this company if you are a true believer in the "new economy", because they will use you up and abuse you until you quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate priorities - the work load is such that it can never be finished within the time allotted. Knowing which projects were a true company priority would have reduced some of the stress.

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers

    Pros

    Decent pay & free movies

    Cons

    Staff is often short, regional supervisors are either un believable with perfect expectations & hardly listen to problems with staff in an effective manner or are hands off with no interjection even when needed for sake of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your budget cannot sustain your expansion

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers part-time (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.
