    I have been working at Franklin Retail Solutions part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job is flexible and that is about all I can say.

    Bad District Managers. Very low pay. Not worth your time. No online services to complete job in store. Spends tons of time entering reports at home. Awful job. Don't join.

    Pros

    Immediate supervising Manager was very good.

    Cons

    Extremely low wages, does not pay for mileage. You are given one hour to complete a project. During this hour you must include time traveled to your destination, time spent working on project and typing and submitting reports from your home office.

    Advice to Management

    Please do more for your employees, it is an unfair wage.

    I worked at Franklin Retail Solutions (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a college student at the time so having the ability to make my own schedule was amazing. I enjoyed the work and the pay.

    Cons

    I was going on my third year of working here, but they forgot to tell me that their contract with my school had not been renewed. Communication could be better.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Work independently, challenging projects, great reporting system on-line. Of all the merchandising companies I have worked for Franklin has the best quality control on the service they deliver.

    Cons

    Independent contractor status makes for headaches at tax time.

    Advice to Management

    More communication from managers and leads.

    Pros

    A very flexible schedule, allowing to work around your children's schedule.
    The pay is very good for the hours stated.

    Cons

    However, you do not get paid on most contracts for admin. Or I should say, they do not include admin or printing cost into the payment of the job. You only get paid for the time in the store.
    I never met any one from the corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Visit your staff once in a while.
    Walk a mile in their shoes and know not everyone can afford to pay for 50 pages of printed material every week.

    Pros

    Most positions are run from your home office.

    Cons

    This company has smart people working for them but management doesn't have the authority to make decisions. Time is wasted and bottom line is affected by poor leadership that doesn't act on advise from people working in the field.
