Actionlink is a fairly good company to work for, aside from pretty low wages. As a merchandising rep, you work alone within your territory at numerous 'big box' stores and do a variety of tasks such as: audits, assemble (interactive) displays troubleshoot (interactive) displays, act as a brand ambassador, and at times perform 'assisted sales'. You make your own schedule typically, are assigned jobs weekly or monthly, and report daily online, often with photos. Minimal contact with your supervisor, little to no training required, technical assistance is available when needed for assembly or troubleshooting of displays. The pay starts pretty low, but for an entry level job its not bad.
flexible schedule, neutral management, lots of variety in tasks
no benefits, mileage on personal vehicle (although quasi reimbursed), not much feedback from management, low advancement opportunity
