    I have been working at Driveline Retail Merchandising part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    -If you enjoy retail but want the freedom to walk out when a customer annoys you, this is the job for you. -It's reasonably flexible, Monday-Thursday between 8am and 10pm (3-30 hours). -it's part-time so you can easily get a second job, if $12,000/yr average isn't enough. -It's really easy to do.

    Cons

    -Employer discount program, minimal benefits (no insurance) -Very little training -Low compensation for travel -You are expected to print out lots of paperwork without compensation. -Rude people everywhere (most Dollar General employees HATE Driveline). -The system is super easy to scam. Take pictures on your smart phone, answer questions, did you actually do your job? Who knows. I've had to clean up after terrible Driveline...

    Advice to Management

    1. Spend more than one day on training. Schedule training on more than one type of task (audits, greeting cards, phones, resets, cut ins etc.). Make sure the person can read and has an appropriate smart phone. 2. Check the work of new employees for the first month and make the DM contact the store managers to assess the employee's work. Do regular evaluations and give raises. 3. Don't schedule multiple 6+ hour resets...

    I have been working at Driveline Retail Merchandising part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Independent work with nobody looking over your shoulder and easy scheduling plus weekly pay with benefits and employee discount program. They are helpful with new hires questions and information

    Cons

    It's hard to get information about paycheck stubs and mileage forms or payment for mileage was missing on my 1st check which I still haven't received. My training consisted of 1 day and a half day or about 3 hours. It was very vague and the amount of paperwork required for each work order is consuming plus required proof of completed projects and technology required is a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Make your merchandiser portal easier to access employee information and payroll information easier to access for employees. Also look for better more through training associates and stores should be held accountable for loss of time worked due to their opening designated boxes of products marked for Driveline including planograms and their responsibility to print necessary forms instead of the employees responsibility...
