    It's fun/easy but not great income

    May 21, 2022 - Part-time Merchandiser 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Easy job, pretty flexible time wise (except for required days before and after holidays), this is a "fun money" job. (Small) Holiday bonus. Work independently most of the time. Paid drive time between accounts.

    Cons

    VERY busy around major holidays. Pay apparently is non-negotiable even if you have significant previous experience, Number of hours fluctuates and can often be lower than expected outside of holidays. No benefits. Only get vacation & sick time because of state and local laws. Difficult to use vacation and sick time because of how flexible the job is. Not a significant source of income oftentimes.

    Pros and Cons to Part Time Merchandiser

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You can set your own schedule, which is the best part of the job. It's also pretty uncomplicated work.

    Cons

    The pay is low. And the work can be strenuous in large, high volume stores, especially at holiday season time. The company also does not give enough hours to get the job done properly. It can be difficult in some stores to get the store management to accommodate our needs to get our job done.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and days, Christmas bonus, very nice bosses, one month of training while working with someone else, managers very supportive and understanding, and was hired without experience.

    Lots of hours around holidays(hours have ranged from 5 to 30 hours per week), pay is not great, pretty physical work, some store managers at times don't give you the retail space you are supposed to have to merchandise product.

    The winds of change are taking effect

    Apr 13, 2022 - Merchandiser 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The Only pros are the autonomy and flexibility in the position. The pay is good, if you have the hours.

    Cons

    No real benefits. This "part time" job has systematically evolved from part time job to paid hobby to gas money gig. When you go from averaging 15-18 hours per week to 10-12 to 3-6 even before the pandemic and rise of inflation, that's not good. I know this position was not designed to serve as a sole income source, but it now serves as a sign that sometimes you have to recognize when it's time to let go. This company is not reinventing itself fast enough. It's still moving 2-3 steps behind everybody else.

    Very Low Pay for Work Required

    Apr 27, 2022 - Merchandiser 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule most of the year.

    Cons

    For the low hourly wage, there is way too much heavy lifting. Shipment boxes are usually crammed behind other stacked boxes and pallets (in the back stock room) making it difficult and dangerous to reach. The backrooms of many of the larger grocery stores are also absolutely filthy, and the smell is very unpleasant. You are paid for your travel time from store to store, but not for your gas/mileage, so you are actually losing money on that.

    Great if you need flexibility in your schedule.

    Pros

    Has very flexible working hours. You can virtually work when it's best for you, so long as you get your hours completed within the week.

    Cons

    Pay isn't good, they brag about being a billion dollar company and yet they can't seem to compensate their employees very well. You don't get benefits or even a discount on merchandise! You'd think they could afford to pay better! They don't give you enough hours to accomplish what you need to accomplish. The company itself is super unorganized and they send product that's unorganized that you must organized before setting it on the floor. They're wasteful with product. Lots of plastic and product to throw out. They say they're trying to be more green but who knows. The tablet and scanner you receive never works consistantly. Training was virtually nonexistent. Working within a Walmart can be stressful, if only because the Walmart managers can be really rude and combative. Employees and especially managers are stretched so thin because people keep quitting and it will affect you.
