      Flexible but frustrating

      Pros

      I worked as a part-time Merchandiser for American Greetings for almost 4 years. For the most part, you make your own hours and stock inventory when you can. I chose to work late at night because there were less people to bother me. This flexibility allowed me to easily attend school and make a few bucks on the side. This was the only reason why I stayed with them for so long.

      Cons

      It was often frustrating working with management and co-workers. Everyone has their own way of doing things and everyone thinks their methods were better. Revisions were a nightmare because we had to change the whole layout of our sections and no one was on the same page. Also, at times the hours they allow you to work at stores really isn't worth it. The smaller stores won't get much hours and you wont be compensated for driving to each store.

      90% of the time you create your own schedule both days and hours you wish to work. Fairly low stress (depending on your stores and route).

      Pay seems low in comparison to other jobs and increases are small and infrequent.

      It's okay

      Pros

      Make your own hours! Work isn't your whole life at this job.

      Cons

      Lots of disconnect between the call center/corporate office employees and merchandisers. The merchandisers who are out in the real world traveling to service different accounts on a daily basis often deal with things outside of the job description or things that the corporate office should handle. Private equity has brought a lot of changes to this company in the past year or so, some things are alright, but there is more bad than good.
