    I have been working at Retail Merchandising Services part-time

    Pros

    Flex sked, can pick up extra hours

    Cons

    Low pay, no annual raise, neg feedback, confusion with details for projects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have 10 documents of instructions per project. Give constructive criticism, don't send nasty condescending emails when errors are made due to no training.

    I worked at Retail Merchandising Services part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work scheduled is really all.

    Cons

    You only hear from the field coordinators when they find something wrong with your servicing. The pay is not at all in line for the work you do. The time allotted for certain projects is not long enough and many times you end up working for free which is ridiculous.

    I worked at Retail Merchandising Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No one breathes down your neck. Easy work.

    Cons

    Not enough hours. Some tasks have time limits, so it can be hard to do everything in the allowed time.

    Advice to Management

    During the interview process, don't tell applicants that they will receive hours that don't exist. 2 to 2 1/2 hours a week is a joke.

    Pros

    Great hours, nice office environment, clear goals and objectives

    Cons

    Full cycle recruiting for a part time entry level position, monotonous phone calling

    Advice to Management

    If possible, pay each role more. Behind the curve in this department.

    I have been working at Retail Merchandising Services part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is flexible project-based work so I can do it most anytime during the week the project is due, over several days or all at once. I can pick up extra time covering other locations. The projects are varied so I never get into a rut. The directions are always top notch and if I have questions, the people at the home office are always helpful.

    Cons

    The amount of work tends to vary with the season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Retail Merchandising Services part-time

    Pros

    Great part time where you can set your own hours. It’s not a job you can earn a living on, however for some extra spending money it’s perfect.

    Cons

    There can be 3-4 months of very few hours.
