    Great company for stay at home mom or college students

    • Work/Life Balance

    I have been working at TNG Merchandising

    Pros

    I love the flexibility of the job. Also like the fact that I have no boss looking over my shoulder constantly. Clip Strips is a newer part of the job so I can't speak for magazines, books, cds, etc....also if I stock more than one store in a day, I get mileage between stores. Perfect job for stay at home mom like me to do while the kids are in school.

    Cons

    Not any that I can really think of at the moment. More pay is always nice, but that goes for any job.

    I have been working at TNG Merchandising part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was the flexibility of different stores.

    Cons

    Management is HORRIBLE, including SUPERVISORS who do not care about you as an employee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LEARN how to run a company. . .answer your emails, If you are going to terminate a person, you could at least let them know instead of blocking them from ALL systems.

    I have been working at TNG Merchandising part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Being one's own boss, and flexible (part-time) scheduling,

    Cons

    Lack of willingness on the part of mgmt to support their employees, heavy lifting, too much driving, orders not filled. There is also an expectation that employees have to perform managerial functions, such as getting cooperation from individual store managers. There is also no definite delivery schedule. Some store managers have little respect for tng employees. Also, books are hardly ever checked in when a merchandiser arrives at a store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay, get district supervisors to be more involved, and stop blaming all of the store problems on the merchandiser when the district supervisor provides no back-up. Give a vehicle allowance; drive time is a joke.

    I have been working at TNG Merchandising part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The flexibility of the schedule is the best! Some accounts can be serviced any day of the week when ever you want. Others have specific days. I can take it slow getting ready in the morning and do chores at home and then go in a little later if needed. If it snows I don't have to be there right at 8am or anything so, I can take my time and be safe getting there. There aren't any other co-workers with me so, I can work the way I like without anyone bugging me. Most of the people at the accounts are really nice. I've made some friends by getting to know some of them. The few supervisors I know are really nice and understanding. If you make a mistake they just let you know what you did and how to fix it. They never yell or make you feel bad. There isn't a supervisor breathing down your neck everyday.

    Cons

    Only part-time, unless you move into management. Can be very few hours depending on how many accounts you pick up. Can be annoying if the shipment doesn't arrive on time, but that doesn't happen too often. Management at some accounts can be a pain, but you usually don't have to deal with them too much. No pay for mileage or wear and tear to vehicle. The job can be pretty physical if you do books and magazines. They are pretty heavy. Lots of walking if that is a problem for you. I personally like it to keep moving and not sitting at a desk all day. If you have an apple computer the programs don't work well with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer full-time potions. Let merchandisers earn some vacation /sick time. Pay mileage, gas is expensive! Have computer programs that will work with a variety of computer systems since you require the employee to provide their own computer. Have a MAC friendly operating system option.
