Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Wendell, NC – August 14, 2017
Good place to work, easy going people to work with, willing to work with your home life schedule. compensation could be more, considering the work is hard. Hardest part of job is when you have a huge reset you have to do alone.

1. they don't know what there doing, everything is done though text message or chats, they don't call you.
2. they only keep you for the promotions then they will laid you off, I got hired but no one told me it was only for a 8 day promotion then they laid everyone off.
3 no one communicates with each other, they expect you to know everything and gets mad if you ask a lot of question.
in other words this job is very awful to work at just trust me dont' apply for this company, your better off going with another company where you can meet your managers and co workers in person, not through texts and chats.
1. I wouldn't say, u would have a good day. 2. Their day, they set-up the questions for their RSR, they know when they set-up day, it is set-up with so many questions that you can not finish your day feeling peace, a job will done. 3. I was told this by my UM...
HRIS Leaders have no idea what to do. They over work you, hire contractors that are given better perks such as work from home but if you are a full time associate, forget it. When it was brought to HR's attention they made the entire team feel even worse.
HR Department, Recruiting Department, Pay, no raises, no work life balance.

Management does not appreciate good employees. They have no concern for a balanced work/family/life environment. When contacting HR, the only respond when they want to. If you ask a question that they don't care to answer they will not respond to your email no matter how many times you send an email or ask the question.
Acosta needs to review the hourly employee rate; as well as per diem for rates for mileage starts at $.32 for first 500 miles then drops to $.31 up to 1100 miles and then $.11 mile thereafter. In addition, they allow up to $35.00 a day however you must submit receipts in order to be reimbursed for these funds. This is time consuming and if you travel you must give the first hour of your travel time to the company before they start allowing you to charge you to start your pay rate.
These things do not cover your travel time or your cover your expenses on your car. In fact If you have to fill your car up 2-3 times in a week you actually end up having to pay to go to work.
Sometimes hard to get all work done in the time allowed in each store. I enjoy working with all the different managers in my 42 locations. Always different promotions happening to keep displays current. I work mostly on my own as my boss is 5 hours away, so there is a lot of trust that I do my job correctly and in a timely manner.
frequently driving 30 minutes to do a store call to stock product with a 60-90 minute time frame and having a 10 minute call due to no back stock. Learned a lot of the retail stores I serviced were extremely unorganized and unprepared. Management was available whenever I needed them which was nice. Hardest part was getting a lot less hours than expected. Enjoyed doing resets
If you are retired and just want some extra income coming in, or a H.S. graduate willing to work for close to minimum wage with no reviews for performance and no pay raises, good fit. Not for higher educated individuals who are looking for upward mobility and career advancement.
