Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Four Corners Area – May 27, 2015
Work independently. Just not enough assignments in my area. Otherwise would be fantastic. All communications with this company is through E-mail or telephone. A 24-hour hotline with knowledgeable persons would be helpful to the employees. Must be computer literate and able to make wise decisions when necessary to benefit your work and the integrity of this company.
District Manager (Former Employee) – Chippewa Falls, WI – April 1, 2015
On email and the computer and phone and conference calls all day long. I learned how to be a Very Strong Manager. I believe the Management is very talented. My co-workers and the best in the Business. The hardest part was not leaving the job at the job. My team was the most enjoyable. All 125 of them.

P/T Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Corporate office is located in Lisle, IL – June 1, 2013
I work as part of a team where each person actually contributes to get the job done. So far the team lead and supervisor I have worked with are great. Each person can work independently on a section and can help another member of the team if needed. Perhaps the hardest part is the final push to get everything ready on the day the store opens.
there are certain perks depending on the project. (i.e.: free drinks at 7-11)
assignments are sporadic and often out of my desired area of travel.
Employees are not micromanaged but pay is below industry standards and fulltime hours are not available.
Sales Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Atlanta North, GA – October 22, 2012
Work days are typically Mondy thru Friday 8am-6pm.All stores are generally designed differently so you learn to adapt to different type setups and merchandising. On-site management is fair and helpful co-workers from Footprint are helpful and work as a team.Certain grocery stores are not set by planograms but by instructions from store management and this can change frequently. Working in different type stores and depts. makes te work enjoyable.
good working hours 8am-6pm, working independently, and coworkers.
Merchandise Reset (Current Employee) – Palmdale, CA – May 25, 2012
Foot Print is a great company to work for if you like flexible part time work or just a stepping stone in between careers or school. The leads and management I work for are great and relaxed people as well as my fellow work mates. There's no drama or stress. The key is just to pay attention to detail and always ask questions to your lead if something seems questionable. I love this job. The only downfall is that it's not a steady dependable gig, henceforth, as I said, it's great for students or a 2nd part time job.
Merchandiser / Store Reset (Current Employee) – Lisle, IL – August 25, 2012
My co-workers are very nice to work with I get along with them very well, If I didn't know how to do something they were very happy to show me, The management team is a wonderful group of people and they are always willing to help me anyway they can.
My main concern working for this company is the lack of hours I have been getting. When I first started I was working 3-4 days and for awhile I was making good money, shortly after working for like a month or so, the hours stopped, my husband recently lost his job back in March, and he returned back to school full time, he is collecting unemployment but that only last so long.......I have not worked in 2 months, if I can pick up some hours and get working again that would be wonderful.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – ohio – September 30, 2014
great job. As a Merchandiser, my responsibilities are program management, handling every aspect of in-store servicing needs - transportation, warehousing, installation, rollouts & remodel, merchandising, and comprehensive reporting.
Coordinated and developed crews for installations.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Southwest Territory of the United States. – July 20, 2013
My job at Footprint involves me coordinated and developed crews for installations, managing freight and delivery of items, aiding Territory Sales Managers and Store Owners/ Managers on developing attractive and functional displays to build business, heading projects for installation of merchandise and fixtures for leading companies such as Phillip Morris, Microsoft, Wal-Mart, US Tobacco, Apple, AMC Theatres, Dunkin Doughnuts, Moen, and Starbucks. It is a fun fast pace environment that challenges your problem solving skills and team building. I like the challenges that each project or client has its own obstacles that you have to be creative to maintain the functionality on both ends of client, owner space in stores. It is something different everyday with new challenges and strategies to apply. The only downside is that there is not a lot of chances for advancement in the Arizona market unless the depot owner wants to sell the depot.
