    I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good company interaction, active position allowing you to do more than sit behind a desk, good benefits, flexible scheduling, independent work as well as group work.

    Cons

    Some weekend work, holiday work, on the field is individual work so you miss out on co worker interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Always think of you people first, make sure they are happy and the company will continue to succeed.
