Pros: flexibility, independence, decent pay, relatively easy work
Cons: very little training, inconsistent hours
I am loving working for Acosta as a merchandiser! I am happy that I can easily make my own schedule around my childrens' activities and other personal obligations. This is a GREAT part-time job for stay-at-home moms or college students looking to make a few extra dollars while gaining real-world business skills.
I've seen reviews that say that the – more... pay is not great, but I am very happy considering I can work when I want and where I want.
I would not apply for a part-time merchandiser job if you are looking for absolutely consistent weekly hours or are not able to quickly catch on to how the retail grocery chain world works. There are also many computer/technology related issues that pop up that you must troubleshoot yourself. If you are not able to rely on yourself to problem-solve or figure things out quickly on your own, you probably are not a great fit for Acosta. – less
