    "Great Merch Job"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Convergence Marketing part-time

    Pros

    Varied jobs throughout the year with Cosmetic Resets being the mainstay. Love the flexibility. Can always turn down a job if it doesn't work for you. Some cosmetic resets can be long days, but you can finish them on a second day. I have a great Area Manager. easy to work for. Allows me to manage my own schedule. I have worked for them 4-5 years. Each year the communication for the jobs gets better.

    Cons

    work can be inconsistant...it is not a routine job. August and December can slow down a bit but I like that. Some jobs don't have detailed instruction, but that is true for the industry.

    "Used to like them...now don"

    I have been working at Convergence Marketing

    Pros

    When I reviewed this company back in September, I mostly enjoyed working for them. I had a good area manager (still have her) and the work was somewhat plentiful (which it still is). The work I've done has mostly been either one of two things: resets for cosmetics (or for gift cards in convenience stores) or continuity work in box stores. At times there are projects (like around Halloween or Christmas). I'm not sure...

    Cons

    The company has changed their policy for travel and I know that my manager seems to feel she tries her best to get her reps a "fair" rate. But to me it isn't fair that what used to be a $50 trip now pays $35....or a $75 trip pays $60. If my husband and I traveled together to do cosmetic resets, we each got the $50 for the trip even though we shared one vehicle. This last time,...

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your travel incentive for reps who travel a lot. I understand that you need to tighten expenses somewhere but this was not the way to do it. To the people considering this company: If you're going to stay in your own little town and just do work there - then Convergence is ok to work for. My area manager is great at communication and she's awesome to work with. But if you are willing to travel because...

    Pros

    Pay is direct deposit and bi-weekly. Management is easy to work with. During cosmetic resets there is a lot of work. Portal easily navigated

    Cons

    This companies largest accounts are cosmetic resets so when it's not reset season there is less work. This company assigns work without your input....you have no control over your own scedule

    I have been working at Convergence Marketing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I like this company because I get a good amount of hours each week to help fill in the gaps when I'm off from my other job. I enjoy doing cosmetic resets and the small projects in between. I've also been able to meet some great people along the way which is always a plus!!

    Cons

    No automatic reimbursement for mileage or printing. Also the pay periods are oddly set up - not the normal setup.

    Advice to Management

    When made to be a Team Lead, there should be an increase in pay otherwise what is the incentive of taking on that position if the pay is the same?

    Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We do take our promotion process very seriously. If you did not receive a pay change when moving to a Team Lead position, I would like to gather additional details to investigate the matter. I would also like to understand more your ...

    Pros

    lots of variety-did a petstore resets until the actual cosmetic resets were ready- and small local projects also available. travel is required for some and they cover the hotel n 15$ for food a day. mileage also after a fixed amount. The area mgrs and the team leads were informative and got issues resolved quickly

    Cons

    not consistently work thruout whole year..but heavy workload during seasons

    I have been working at Convergence Marketing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy doing cosmetic resets, counting and stocking the product. As well as doing the signage and tags.

    Cons

    You have to ask for everything and then wait for it. Communication is very seldom done by phone. And they always seem to busy to help.

    Advice to Management

    You need to come up with a solution for the mileage and gas issue. Gas should be preapproved and sent to you the payday before.
