      I worked at Anderson Merchandisers full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Great associates to work with overall. Leader in the merchandising industry.

      Cons

      Poor training provided when new systems are put in place.

      Advice to Management

      Ensure all Management is fully trained in the management capacity. There are managers in place, that have little clue on how to manage effectively.

      I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Easy to learn process, Iphone provided, activities very doable and always arrive on time, essentially your own boss

      Cons

      Never knowing where you will work until an hour before, team lead never answered calls or text, dealing with Walmart employees , low pay, no benefits even though you work full time hours

      Advice to Management

      Hire full time partners and pay them a reasonable wage. Provide optional benefits. Low pay and schedule change every morning is ridiculous.

      I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Pay is ok but varies greatly between employees in the same position. DSM’s have company cars although they are taking them away.

      Cons

      Always severely understaffed and expected to do 120 hrs of work in under 40 They do not offer a work life balance They take from you until you have nothing left to give Expectations are not realistic Takes on too much work without the staffing to execute but still expects it done They do not value their employees No room for advancement

      Advice to Management

      Get HR generalists who actually care and are there for the employees. Stop taking contracts for dates that we are already booked beyond our capacity. Expecting 120 hrs of work to be done in 40 is not realistic!! Then the audits, you can’t expect everything to be perfect when we do not have the staff to execute

      I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Pay used to be decent, but amount of driving between stores blows that away.

      Cons

      Bad management. Pay needs to be better for employees that have been there for years. Especially when you’re going to 5-6 stores a week, and on Tuesdays and Fridays, 4-5 stores a day. Insurance is a joke, extremely expensive, high deductible. Telling clients that work is being done, but it can’t get done.

      Advice to Management

      For a full time rep, should have 2-3 stores in a territory, not the 5-6. Can’t get part timers to stay, so full time rep has to cover all work in all stores. Ridiculous

      I have been working at Anderson Merchandisers for more than a year

      Pros

      Best reason is this is a big company so you can work every where

      Cons

      The company here in phoenix have a lot of work so being a part time I have to work more that 40 or 50 hours a week

      Advice to Management

      Contract more people
