    Pros

    The company allowed most of the employees to have a flexible work schedule (some store accounts had to be merchandised in the morning). The upper management would give merchandisers cash around the holidays, and take them out to eat. Employees would be treated to a going away dinner (depending on who the employee is). Emails are sent out thanking everyone for their hard work.

    Cons

    Territory Managers got away with murder. They skipped out on work often, and they were not doing the duties they claimed to be doing. The first one that was hired was basically in over her head when it came to getting the job done, or knowing what to do. She claimed to be “too busy” to help out when she was really needed. However, she knew how to sweet talk and lie her way out of situations and it always sounded so believable (both EU General and Sales Managers were always duped by her). The second Territory Manager had some experience with working with the General Manager and the Sales Manager, so she was familiar with what she could get away with and when to take advantage of getting away with things. One particular merchandiser was responsible for 3-5 pallets full of magazines (which takes a few days to put out). The higher ups were aware that the Merchandiser was working past her hours just to get the magazines out, and of course they did not care. The Merchandiser requested for someone to help, and they refused to get any additional help for the merchandiser. The pay (a few cents over minimum wage) did not equate to the amount of work that the Merchandisers did—most of them worked hard. The Territory Managers were paid ($15 and up) a decent amount, plus they received perks (gas allowance, paid cell phone bill, paid internet...). However, they were not always working.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire Territory Managers that are going to work. Some Merchandiser’s workloads are too heavy, so please be fair and pay them more. Also, in order to lower turnover, set a fair compensation.
