    I have been working at Premium Retail Services part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with PRS for over 8 years. It is a great company with great managers and I have one of them. She is fair in scheduling and would do anything in her power to help you be successful and happy! She is one of the reasons I continue with Premium. If you have worked for a retail services company, you know how important a good manager is to your job! She's supportive, understanding and realistic!
    The ultimate in managers! Thank you Premium Retail services for providing the best management in the merchandising arena!

    Cons

    The basic challenges with retail merchandising companies.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation for field employees needs to be reviewed

    I have been working at Premium Retail Services full-time

    Cons

    none on the side of the program I'm on

    I have been working at Premium Retail Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They often promote from within. This company values it's current employees by offering them the job first. I've been working with the company for over five years now, and have seen a number of people including myself get the position that they've wanted by working hard and applying from within. This is a great motivator for us to do the best job possible because you never know where it can lead!

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of. I love my peers and managers.

    I have been working at Premium Retail Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for 5 companies in this industry and out of all of them this one is the best. They care about their employees. The various divisions allow for growth so if you start as a merchandiser you can work up to moving to the Total group to do training and sales. they train you and they work to make you better not like most that just treat you like a body in a store

    Cons

    pay is a little low but they give you opportunities for bonuses

    Advice to Management

    work harder to make the field reps across the nation feel more apart of the company

    I have been working at Premium Retail Services part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has many different clients, lots of work throughout the year. Some of the best Regional Managers & Reg. Directors I've ever worked with! Gives opportunities to do many different jobs within the company after you've been with them for a while. Love the flexibility it affords me. Worked for many merch companies through the yrs = only one I've stayed with. Opportunities for bonuses as you grow with the company. Managers who care, always trying to find ways of helping. May fall short at times but there are no perfect companies out there. Would rather work for a company like this with consistent work and managers who stick around than companies where I went through managers every month!

    Cons

    Some say pay is low vs. other companies but they don't get work with them. Here you get to work!

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within more for upper management jobs.

    FLEXABLILITY, Bonuses, make your own schedule, the people behind this company are fantastic people, always a support line of people to speak with, not a machine, room to make extra money outside your regular work, room to move around in the company, located in many states,towns,ect. so you can relocate if you move if there is an opening.

    Management just keeps improving making their employees love them even more. I am so blessed to have found this job and to say I work for Premium!
