Don't expect to be able to pay your bills!
merchandiser (Current Employee) –  upstate NYFebruary 10, 2017
zero ability to know what hours you will have from week to week. Calls given then taken away with no notice. No pay raises, ever. Mileage stinks, well below federal rate and changes frequently. Management gives lip service and does nothing.....that is if you can even get a response from them. Constantly hiring new employees while the current ones have no hours. You will be stepping over other company employees in the same stores you are in because everyone is sent all over the place with no consistent territory and it will take a toll on your car, not good if you lease one as you will be way over on mileage.
Used to be a reliable part time job, when hired I was told I would have a minimum amount of hours for the week, not any more. No consistency.
Semi flexible work hours if you have kids or other obligations but not enough to pay your bills. You will need another job to compensate for lean paychecks. No benefits for part time workers and the ones you can buy you won't make enough to cover. Keep looking.
Pros
some calls are flexible as to when you have to do them
Cons
no raises...ever. minimal work hours if any. low mileage pay

it is a flexible job
Midnight Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  usaFebruary 9, 2017
it is flexible, so management will work with you on your schedule. the job is so repetitive, it can get old fast. on the plus side, there is no direct management that oversees your work.

All communications are with electronics

Acosta is an interesting pale to work. There is a lot of repetition involved in answering the questions. All communications are done electronically and it was hard to have a detailed conversation with a real person.
Pros
pay good
Cons
had to wear dress clothes even when working dirty heavy products making displays

enjoyed working close with my teammates
Reset Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 26, 2017
OK company to work for, benefits were terrific although very few opportunities for salary advancement. Opportunity to work close with your teammates and Supermarket employees. Always learning about new products and helping customers with questions and how to find specific products. Company always fair about working environment and proper break times. Publix always let us take our breaks and eat our lunch in their breakroom.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
