The last job I work at was something different from my last jobs I had in the past few years." When I started working at this job I was scared and nervous because I didn't have a job for some years." I learn how to rebuild a wall and also how to build trays and learn how to read tags to know where the product belong the management was good the people – more... I work with was also good." The hardest part when I first started was learning how to the job and the most enjoyable part about the job was learning new things and if I could I would work at the job again." – less

A typical day at work consisted of resetting and revising wall plans and shelves with product, new fixtures, shelves, and graphics. I learned how to manage a team of 2-6 people and guide them on merchandising standards.

Merchandising Specialist (Current Employee), Millersville, MD – December 22, 2013
Pros: flexibilty, fun and enjoyable
Cons: uncertainty of work
There realy is no typical day working for Convergence. Everday is a new learning experience, whether it be cutting in a merchandising prop, leading a team to reset a 24 foot cosmetic Department for a antional retailer or an entire store remodel. The locations and co-workers vary from job to job. The hardest part of the job is the uncertainty of work – more... from month to month. The best part however is that it is flexible work that can be done to help suppliment any other income source. – less
Great way to earn money and meet new poeple, not a career.
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Hanover, Maryland – December 19, 2013
Pros: free travel and lodging accomadations, start off at a good pay
Cons: can take up to a month to earn first paycheck
If traveling is something you like, then this company will cater to you. I've personally been all over the United States. However, there is a lot of inconsistency within the workplace. Crucial information is often not delivered until the last minute, or not delivered at all. There is a little favoritism between some upper management and certain employees. – more... For the most part the people I have worked with have been pleasant and friendly. The job is not difficult but can be physically demanding at times, depending on which shift you work (night shift does a lot of building). If you want to save up money or just want a job on the side this is a great place to look, but because work is based on contracts you can sometimes be without a paycheck for months on end. – less
Cosmetic Merchandiser (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OH – December 18, 2013
Pros: great team members
Cons: too many miles on vehicle and not enough gas reimbursement
Jobs are too few. Really more seasonal type work. Team members work hard and are awesome to work with. Hardest part of the job is getting up and down constantly off of the floor. Jobs can be anywhere in the tri-state area.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Fall River, MA – November 29, 2013
Pros: exciting, fun, traveling, good pay
Cons: 3 weeks between pay checks, hard on gas, lots of miscommunication
Usually you are set up with a team and meet up at the designated store. Team jobs are usually start at 7am/8am and can run as long as 10 hours. The resets usually have a specific allotted time. Shorter resets may only require one person and last maybe an hour or two. You can work anywhere from a mile down the road from your house or 7 hours away from – more... home. If the distance is more than 50 miles they will make accommodations for gas and hotel if needed. The people here do a great job at training. The hardest part of the job is getting proper communication between the stores' and the company's higher ups. Miscommunication can lead to many job issues and are fairly common. These are often left up to the team leader to fix. It is nice to see everything all cleaned up and fully stocked. Also you do get a lot of opportunities to travel around in different states! – less
