Independantly structured
Retail Sales Merchandiser (Current Employee), Home basedMay 15, 2015
Pros: Independence, self motivated
Cons: advancement, pay increases
Working with people and accomplishing tasks at hand is the highlight of Merchandising. Gaining a success is challenging, and rewarding at the same time.
Would love to see growth within the company to go forward and excel the opportunities are limited. A career working and developing strong relationships comes natural with my personality. I am not limited to asking the hard questions nor do I feel intimidated by a non sale. My motto is "if you don't ask you won't know the answer".

The worst company to work
Retail Coverage Specialist (Former Employee), Marietta, GAApril 27, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours to some extent
Cons: No raises
The worst company ever, the benefits are terrible, no pay raise ever, tenure and longevity mean nothing. The attitude is just be happy you have a job. The managers get bonuses, but nothing trickles down to the hard working minions.

This was a appreciative company to work for
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Grand Junction, COApril 25, 2015
Pros: Nice pay
Cons: Hard work with not enough time sometimes.
This was a great company to work for. They lost the contract and therefore did not need us after that. I was given several raises for my work and this company was very fair.

A typical day I arrive put together the labels with the strips and the pog. I also can do resets with just the POG. I did this for the last 12 years.

Then I would assign each employee their resets to start the day with and I would take mine. We would complete all the resets and then have a sign off sheet completed with management.

Great company just do not expect to get your bonuses paid
Retail Sales Trainer (Current Employee), Edison, NJApril 22, 2015
Pros: Great company benefits and working environment
Cons: They rip you off on your bonuses because they change policies without informing employees.
This is one of the easiest and most common sense jobs on the planet. It allows flexibility and helps build great relationships. The benefits are some of the best out there. You learn about how other industries function and build good product knowledge. If you are very sharp, quick and smart you can totally be successful in the job.

The company dangles your quarterly bonus in front of you building up expectations during the first quarter only to last minute decide that they will not pay it. They do not keep you aware of your quotas and internally make changes without discussing it with employees. In my case, I was offered an additional $500 for my bonus because I did the company a favor and gave up a whole month of my life to work on a pilot program in a store that is 100 miles from my home. I stayed in hotels and was home one day a week. They were so poorly managed that they forgot what they agreed to pay me extra that they called me to ask me what they offered me. I told them what the number was and I was told that they started putting in the bonuses. Now a few days later I am told that 90% of us are not getting them. I missed my quota by like 9% apparently. I already agreed to do the company another favor this weekend that is coming up. Guess what. After this favor I will never do them any more favors. They pay is low as it is and I was relying on this bonus to pay off one of my debts. If you come work for this company everything is great but do not expect to get your bonuses

Horrible, unorganized, unknowledgeable manager! AWFUL!
Retail Associate (Former Employee), Mansfield, OHApril 16, 2015
Pros: Flexiblity
Cons: Management is a hot mess, not enough hours, no financial growth, mileage isn't worth it.
The job itself is fun, and easy....IF! you can make sense of the the emails that they send you! or if you're lucky enough to get a good Unit manager! For me the manager I had was lazy, unorganized, unreliable, and just a complete mess!
When I was hired I was told that I would be working 20-25 hours a week! I was barely getting 15 hours a week and then the merger happened! and I was down to 6-10 hours a week. there's also no financial growth WHATSOEVER! Not a practical if you have bills and such! if you're retired or a student this is the perfect job for you. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT! Be warned if you get a job with be ready for emails that have just been forwarded a billion times!

Some Management are there for you and not themselves
Sales & Marketing (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 13, 2015
Pros: Good Benefits for F/T
Cons: They can drop status when they want; F/T - P/T
A day could range 6-9hrs. We got to make our schedule, as long as the hrs for ea. store was met. Dealing with products, you learn of UPC #'s, and shelving procdures. You watch for Out of Dates, and overall apearance of the product.

The Company overall was great when I started at F/T. Always seeming to want to take care of its personel. After time, a new UM for my area was hired, and everything went down hill. I was cut to P/T, and the attitude of other coworkers changed.

The enjoyable part of the job was that I was keeping bad or out of date products away from the public, keeping them safe. But also I was introducing new products to them some times which good be a task, making sales.
