I worked at Premium Retail Services part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I've worked for a few different field managers and one was very good. I have worked for a few companies in this field and PRS is in the better half.

Cons

The nature of their business is cyclical throughout the year, so there are times when you're very busy and times you are waiting around. Difficult to get recognized or to get ahead, not much call for promotions or even raises.

Advice to Management

Offer better pay, recognize good work.

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say about this company.

    Cons

    The pay is $7.25 per hour for a merchandiser. Minimum wage! They add on a $2.50 mileage per hour. They schedule stores that are 50-60 miles away from your home. You will lose more money in driving than you actually receive doing the jobs assigned. Do not go over the alloted store time because you will be working for FREE. Management does not explain any work, they send emails all evening and expect you to read them on your own time. You will get an hour for a store call. No time is allowed for emails, printing, getting to the store, entering call information or going through the ridiculous amount of boxes they send by UPS. The boxes contain insects so do not bring them into your home.
    The management have little people skills and they hire anyone who is there to take the job. No pay for training. No pay for actual mileage, no pay for drive time. No pay for entering call reports online. The district manager sends emails and the rules change from day to day. The management does not care about their employees. You will be treated very bad and there is nothing that will be done to make your employment better. I do not understand why their clients tolerate this behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of every person that you currently have as a manager in the field. Stop paying the managers to do absolutely nothing. Maybe some people skills training. Be more selective who you place as a manager. Take care of your workforce because they are the ones keeping you in your job.

    I have been working at Premium Retail Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing good about at Premium Retail.

    Cons

    The right hand never knows what the left hand is doing. People being hired today are being paid less money than people hired 4 years ago. They keep taking things away from the reps. There are never any raises given. They make goals impossible to meet; so, they don't have to pay bonuses that have been promised. They are always very last minute with everything. The owners of the company let a certain manager do whatever she wants. The company has absolutely no respect for people who work in the field. Their clients need to make sure they are getting what they pay for because there is talk that they use money from one client for other clients. There is no rhyme for the way store visits are set up. Also, HR does not protect the employee. They protect who they see as the most powerful. This is just an overall horrible company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to respect people. Also, the owners need to reel a certain person in, and stop letting her do whatever she wants. HR needs to start protecting the employee and stop running to certain management people.
