Enjoyed my time with Acosta for the most part, it was a stepping stone job where you get your experience and move on to a better paying job elsewhere.

Frustrating, micromanagement, cheap
Business Manager Assistant (Current Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNJanuary 7, 2018
I have performed well above my peers. But over the six years I have worked for them, I have gotten $0.40 in raises. Even though my immediate supervisors recommended raises, the senior management has refused to grant them. We are badly understaffed, and the workload is crushing.
Pros
Immediate business managers are great. Time off is good.
Cons
Cheap senior managers, understaffing.

They do not compensate you for wear and tear on your own vehicle.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Peoria, ILJanuary 4, 2018
Gas allowance is minimal for the required travel.It is not a job worth having if you are trying to be on your own. Salary is very poor and promotions never happen.

Flexible work environment
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJanuary 4, 2018
This is a good job if you are a single parent like myself. I needed flexibility in my schedule to accommodate my son's school schedule. A lot of the work is solo, but there are some team projects you have to contribute to. The compensation is not great, but if you need a job that can work around your personal life, then this might be a decent option.
Pros
flexibility
Cons
compensation

constant threat of lay offs
RSM (Current Employee) –  MarylandJanuary 3, 2018
Work 10-12 hours, get paid for 8. Driving for 4 hours a day and then working 8 in stores and never compensated properly for time. Mileage pay is not adequate. Drive times are not estimated properly. Territories are way too large for the amount of work required in each store. And in Baltimore unfortunately unsafe. Tons of sales materials sent to your home, need a storage unit it is so much. Also takes up your whole vehicle.
Pros
weekends off (usually)
Cons
most everything

Nice but really disorganized company
Field Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  KansasJanuary 1, 2018
Pleasant work and very flexible schedule but little job security, opportunities, or compensation. Company is very disorganized and completely changes course frequently. Management often doesn't know what's coming or going on.

Great environment but needs alot more work when it comes down to management and the hourly pay.
Claims Resolution Analyst (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 29, 2017
Typical day at work was very collaborative, but mostly busy. Hardest part of the job was the communication. The communication wasn't friendly, it was more so strictly business but also rude at a all time high, whether it was through email, phone, or face to face.
Pros
Hour lunch
Cons
Break areas

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MODecember 29, 2017
It was a very hard job to keep up with. You would get 40 hours one week and 12 the next. Travel was a must as far as over an hour drive. Heavy lifting, unsafe environment, lacking team work within the crews.
Pros
free lunch when you worked
Cons
travel, early mornings and late nights in no so good areas

Flexible schedule and easy if you know what you doing
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Flower Mound, TXDecember 27, 2017
You make your own schedule to complete you jobs in the store and when you are done you can go home. Its basically the same jobs as the store employee but for more money.

Hardest part of the job
Lead Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Rockford, ILDecember 14, 2017
Acosta sets length of time on calls for each vendor based on what they think it should take, which is all fine and good, we all get it. However, there are a few clients that there is just absolutely no way to do the job right in the time frame given.
Pros
Working schedule around your life
Cons
Never knowing how many hours you are going to get week to week

Easy
Retail Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Roseville, CADecember 12, 2017
Easy job, lacks training, management not consistent, and vary how they run the team. They expect alot from you, but if you show up & check in properly & stay for duration, your fine.
