    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.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed working in several different stores, meaning I got to work with a rotating group of new people.
    The occasional free movies were nice.

    Cons

    We had so many projects, and the time needed to finish them wasn't nearly enough.
    The Surveys were usually horribly worded or inaccurate, so it would take an extra 15-20 minutes working by yourself or with the help desk to complete an activity.

    Not a bad place to work. People are easy to talk to. They trust you enough to time manage and complete the job effectively and efficiently.

    Cons

    Little Public Holiday Closure

    Advice to Management

    Maybe consider giving your employees more public holiday.

    It would be great to have some more employee centric events so we could mingle more often and collaborate.

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers part-time

    Pros

    You must enter at least 5 words for Pros.

    Cons

    You can't make a living ,on 16 hours a week. You can't expect someone to travel far and away to other stores get everything done on little sleep. Finding a second job is tough will all the crazy midnight blitzes and I need you to work overnights to reset the checklsne mods. The company is not suited to be on the client services market especially when you are told to blow off activities to save the company payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing your staff to rush and do crap jobs. It's how we lose clients.

    Pros

    Flexibility is all i can come up with to get as close to the 20 word min and thats it .

    Cons

    Poor pay
    Poor scheduling
    Poor activity times
    Poor management
    Poor incentives
    Now the real stuff. As a tsl I'm tired of these no name movie blitz we're going crazy to do. Hello studio people. .no one is waiting for movies at midnight or 6am!! I've realized in my 5 yrs that all we're good for is keeping our DM looking good so they don't get in trouble. Doesn't matter how much we burn ourselves out. As long as the numbers look good. Anderson made a huge mistake selling the books. When doing that you should've let reader link hire reps of their own. We're one person. .we can't do it all and make it as perfect and pretty as you want! Then having us go in at all hrs of the night to do these ridiculous blitz movies. Yet most of the time we still have to work a full day on actual Tuesday.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look from behind your computers and understand we can't do it all. Plus wuthering no incentives or worthy pay. Why would we even want to go the extra mile for you guys that sit there and collect the big bucks?
