Pros: schedule your own hours, work the days you want (minus friday -> sunday), schedule the times you want, document printing reimbursement (10 pages is like $1, so it's not much), mileage reimbursement (only over 30 miles, and not a high rate)
Cons: extremely low pay, very low advancement opportunities, bad management communication, bad management follow-through, instructions are often misworded, tech helpline often does not know what to do on their own, stores are often not told of the project before starting
The company is 'okay' to work for. Basically put, you'll be working less than 15 hours per week (for the most part), and be expected to drive 0 - 200 miles for work (only reimbursed at .25 or so a mile). Average pay for a single 1 hour job is about $9. Average pay for a single 2 hour job is about $15. Simply put, over a single two month period, I made – more... maybe, MAYBE $400. That's not much.
You do learn some new skills for merchandising, and you meet some interesting people at the stores. Plus, there is room for you to work on the sales side as well (which is where the real money is). However, the chances of that are slim.
Managers rarely return emails on time.
Managers rarely answer phone calls on time.
Managers could care less about your personal travel needs; if you can't travel for the job BEYOND your designated area, you are pretty useless to them.
Dress uniform is different depending on the job; so having several suits clean is important.
Company culture seems nice, but you are not actually part of the company.
Hardest part of the job is pictures. If there is even one flaw in your picture, you can be in trouble, or not be paid.
Second hardest part of the job would be travel.
Third hardest part of the job would be communication & training; while it is true you are paid to train, the training is using minor cbt style videos, and then just repeating the test results in the video for your 'certification'. Failure to do them perfectly = failure to pass the test = failure to be on the team (I didn't fail any). – less
