merchandiser (Current Employee) – upstate NY – February 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.
some calls are flexible as to when you have to do them
no raises...ever. minimal work hours if any. low mileage pay
Great field managers who understood field execution practices working within defined project budgets

Flexible work schedule as a part time employee. Good communication to field personnel about work implementation and expectations. Provided online training regarding company culture as well as online training modules for work performance.
Too many small projects that had limited work time...
Manager Field Trainer (Former Employee) – Douglasville, GA – February 1, 2017
I enjoyed my position at Acosta because it allowed me to grow and gain very prominent relationships on a professional level. As a Field Trainer the company allowed me to be empowered to manage in a style that was comfortable to me without being micromanaged.

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.
had to wear dress clothes even when working dirty heavy products making displays

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.
This is a great company. You work independently, no management on your back all day. Communication is purely by phone or email. Unit Manager is very helpful. Good benefits. Work your 40 hours at your convenience during the day time hours. Flexible otherwise.
