    I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working independently and learning about new products

    Cons

    Workload is unrealistic. The projects vs the amount of hours does not even come close to adding up. I work another job and was hired for part time. 20 hours became 40 hours and projects still could not be realistically completed. I was told that more people were being hired. Months later and nothing. The work is labor intensive and the pay does not add up to your responsibilities. And the schedule changes without notice. Sometimes on the same day. You could be heading to one job then realise that they changed your location and time and should be at a different job. And if you think that you can plan your week by the schedule that you receive on Monday, forget it. It will change everyday so don't make plans. Don't schedule appointments or activities because chances are you will have to cancel. I was excited to work for thia company because I enjoy working independently and being busy. But I would not recommend this job to anyone who has a family, friends, or any other obligations other than being at Wal-Mart working.

    Advice to Management

    Please understand people have lives outside of work. It is not fair nor right to change schedules with only hours notice. People have lives, children, appointments, ect. Please properly staff so that these issues get resolved. I am sure your turnover rate is high. This is why.

    Cons

    Hires at part time but still schedules over 40 hours a week with 6 day work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    When you put in your availability like you did when hired and the system tells you it will start the next pay period but yet the next pay period comes around and your still 6 days a week over 40 hours...
