Merchandising is not a position that you want to spend more than 2-4 years in.

Pros

The pay is decent..great opportunity for someone in college to have general work experience on their resume when they graduate..benefits are good...you work with minimal supervision so your supervisor won't be on you that much...driving between stores is the nice with the freedom you have and the reimbursement of 55 cents per mile is nice too...you get to meet some nice customers and associates in these stores

Cons

long hours...for all the work you do you just get a half hour lunch break...terrible work/life balance..i'd start at 7 am and most days i wouldn't finish until almost 7 pm...some management in these stores view you as not worth the floors they walk on...sometimes i have to work behind someone who doesn't know what their doing or lazy...maybe both....so i end up doing double-work sometimes(including rotation)...there is no reward for doing a good job...no merchandiser of the month or anything...bad supervisor..when i voiced my concerns about anything to my supervisor he always says i'll take care of it, but nothing gets done....same goes with account managers when it comes to supplies(tape, repack boxes)...but they'll rat on you in a second of there are much left to be repacked....can't do anything if i don't have the supplies....communication is bad...i'd walk into a store ready for an order and i expect 5 pallets for the order..the truck driver ended up pulling out 10 pallets...call up the account manager like what's up with these 5 extra pallets?....oh i have to meet my quota for the month...so to the future merchandisers out there, prepare for everything i've said if you decide to be one

Advice to Management

Spend more time actually seeing what goes on in the lower levels of the company. Merchandisers go through plenty. Develop a better training program. Keep a better on these account managers. Needs to improve communication among supervisors, account managers, and merchandisers.

    Pros

    - Salary and bonus schedule are great.
    - Coke is everywhere. Lots of international opportunities doing just about anything.

    Cons

    - Very political work environment.
    - Decisions are not made quickly. Several meetings and workshops take place first and then many times no decision is ever made.
    - Very complicated work environment. Many people own small amounts of info and it takes lots of time and patience to get what you need (cause long work days and tight deadlines).
