Pros

Customers are the best. It is a small paycheck. It doesn't seem to matter if you try or you don't - the results are about the same. Always flexible part-time so lots of free time.

Cons

2-8 hours per month = poor compensation. Absolutely incompetent management, zero recognition and feedback, micro-managed, rude, unproductive communication. The CEO and upper managemnet is hidden so there is nobody to go to.

Advice to Management

Go out there and see for yourself! Do some audits! Check out your DM's. The ones you got right now are sucking the life out of this company with high and excessive travel costs while they pretend to be saving you money!

    Pros

    Independence, you decide which jobs you work locally and which day of the week you work them. Easy work if you've done merchandising before. If not, all instructions are spelled out. Interesting work. Automated reporting is convenient.

    Cons

    Pay is low and not really negotiable for a raise. You get nothing for mileage or the time you spend on paperwork, so you need to watch you're not in the hole when you finish. Some stores assigned are good and others just don't care - you are wasting your time with them. I was told "you are not paid to care about their store" just do your work.

    Advice to Management

    As others have said - recognize effort. Recognize experience or extra effort, let us earn raises. Gas costs over $3.75/gallon now. Pay mileage. Communicate better about jobs in advance of assignments.


  2. Great atmosphere and friendly cooworkers

    Pros

    The best feature of working for SPAR is the ability to set your own dates for when you would like to complete your assignment.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will not get many hours in a week to work but more will come as you progress over time.

    Advice to Management

    Working with SPAR has been easy so far. The company hires and promotes good managers that know how to connect with new merchandisers.
