Current Employee - Retail Merchandiser in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Retail Merchandiser in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Driveline Retail Merchandising

Pros

- Flexible schedule; set your own schedule
- Usually work independently
- Get to work in different locations
- Can usually get time off when requested
- Overall, hassle-free environment

Cons

- Extremely low pay
- Have to use your own vehicle for assignments but won't get reimbursed unless you drive over 40 miles, so there's a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle.
- No benefits or supplemental medical/dental
- Very little to no training. You're pretty much expected to learn as you go even if you've never done a particular assignment before.
- No performance reviews given so you're unaware of your progress or lack thereof
- Requires a lot of printing and there's no reimbursement for printing costs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Should at least provide some training. Could provide instructional videos on each assignment when required to complete certifications. Could also consider having a mentor accompany you on all first-time assignments to ensure jobs are done consistently and accurately.
- Should consider either increasing pay or implementing a printing/mileage reimbursement program to supplement the operating expenses required to conduct assignments. This is especially true since employees receive no medical benefits.
- Should also make job board more user friendly by reducing the amount of paper needed to take to stores. Can do this by posting one set of instructions if working in multiple stores.

    Pros

    It's a small company feel and relatively easy to get face time with management. Depending on who you report to, time off can be easy.

    Cons

    They ONLY care about bottom line, even if it means cutting valuable employees. They generally disrespect their employees and customers and have horrible communication skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to realize they are nothing without their employees and customers. Giving adequate notice for all benefit related issues would be appreciated.

    I worked at Driveline Retail Merchandising

    Pros

    Jobs were within 30 miles of my home. "Most" assignments were fairly easy.

    Cons

    Very low pay...no drivetime or mileage paid...totally rude and unprofessional DM in the Middle Tennessee area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a District manager in middle Tennessee that does not belittle and berate employees. Review current DM.
