I worked at Anderson Merchandisers part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours made this job perfect for me both while I was in school and after graduation. The pay is competitive and the work is easy. My favorite part of the job was building those cardboard movie display units on new release Tuesday.

My bosses were all easy-going and I always felt respected.

Cons

Even though I worked as a part-time merchandiser for 22 months and was told I would be given a smartphone for my job, my district manager repeatedly reneged. Having a smartphone and a handheld scanner would have made me many factors more productive.

Instead, I had to spend anywhere between 0:15 mins and 1:00 on my personal phone with a call center.

When I needed to check inventory on an item, I would have to rely on a notoriously stand-offish Walmart employee.

It also seemed to me that I was spending way more time in a single store than any of the other vendors. Combined with the fact that Anderson Merchandisers primarily serves Walmart and Sam's Club, I sometimes felt like a Walmart employee.

Advice to Management

My advice to management is to design a system that better accounts for the differences in store size and sends an appropriate quantity of product &/or a manageable number of merchandising projects.

    I worked at Anderson Merchandisers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free movies
    HR is nice
    Great hours at first and holidays
    Lots of free time after work

    Cons

    Inept Management
    Impossible expectations, especially on Sundays
    Favoritism of co-workers by Management and Best Buy(examples are hours).
    Don't expect to report a co-worker that is liked by Management and Best Buy without getting a "He/She never does anything wrong" response.
    Lack of Communication
    Open Door Policy does not exist
    You will get blamed for things you didn't not do often by Management and Best Buy.
    If you're wrongly accused of something, you do not get due process. false statements will be reported against you, and if you're not liked, Management will do nothing to help you.

    Advice to Management

    I have expressed issue in the past and they were not taken into consideration.
