    I worked at Driveline Retail Merchandising part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is not much anymore

    Cons

    It was great for single parents with children or a second job. But over the years with restrictions on what days you can work the flexibility became ridged. DM's became clueless and/or overworked. Poorly written instructions. Unable, for some odd reason, to fire zero or counter-productive employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take a very long look at the way you allowed your DM's and Master Merchandisers to work 6 years ago versus today and implement changes to allow that even with the expansion/growth in business. Empower the DM's and more experienced Master Merchandisers instead of handcuffing them.

    I have been working at Driveline Retail Merchandising part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have worked for DL a little over 4 years in two Territories GA and FL. Work is flexible and for the most part consistent. I'm able to collaborate with other industry merchandisers and meet all levels retailing constituents
    Which is a great source of free training and knowledge.

    Cons

    Dollar General is DL principal account with many projects ongoing however most of them are on a tight tome constraints; both sides work on a very minimal budget which puts unnecessary pressure on all parties.

    Advice to Management

    STOP hiring DM not qualified to handle large territories and hiring just anyone who applies for merchandising positions. You must have integrity and cohesiveness to work in this field to be successful and I don't see it often with DL new hires. Give rate increases where they are due..

    Its great to have a boss who fights for what right and takes up there crew. Go Linda Sebastian thank you for the opportunity to work with this lady. She was a the catalyst in my decision to relocating 1,300 miles.

    Good work environment.
    Competitive pay.
    Good Communication with District Manager.

    Cons

    Last minute project assignments cause unneeded stress. This is mostly due to unreliable employees, I believe. I have been assigned projects late in the week with a due date at the end of the week.

    Advice to Management

    Organize employee schedules/territory by assigning work to reliable employees.
