Getting pallets of magazines for future months into totes for specific stores. Each tote has specific amounts of each bundle of magazine and you must put each amount in the tote as it moves along a assembly line of sorts.
Meeting many different people everyday, work at your own pace
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 19, 2014
Going out and interacting with my merchandisers, store managers and shipping and receiving clerks to ensure that everything was going out right was great. I learned organizational and management skills as well as working with a tablet to get paperwork completed and turned into the office from out in the field. My co-workers were really great. Sometimes it was hard to get to all of my stores everyday, but I loved being able to fix problems and work out difficulties that merchandisers had.
good position for part-timers. work your own hours as long as you get the stores completed on the dy of the deliveries. Some days have only 2 deliveries (1+ hours) other days have up to 9 deliveries (12+ hours).
Driver/Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Amarillo, TX – July 22, 2013
Don't bother unless you are starving. Lots of physical labor and long hours driving for no money whatsoever. If somebody calls the number on your truck you get points penalties and can get fired for it.....no questions asked. You can't defend yourself or anything. Any moron on the street can call in and get you in trouble and they do all the time.
Merchandiser/Vendor (Current Employee) – Pensacola, Fl – July 19, 2013
Typical day- Driver drops off product, I receive product with DSD clerk per rules of each store. I work five stores total which include Walmart, Publix, and Winn-Dixie. Pull old product, replace with new. Clean area, maintain good communication with store managers and co-workers. I work with little to no supervision. I meet and exceed sales goals on a regular basis.
Merchandiser / Driver (Current Employee) – Fort Walton Beach, FL – July 16, 2013
I have to get up very early for work but most days I get off earlier in the day. I learned a lot about merchandising and the inner workings of a distribution company. The management was very good but sometimes cold to the problems you are having at work like, when my truck broke down they didn't see it as a priority to help me get back on the road. Other than little stuff like that great management. It is an independent job. I don't see much of anyone I work with. The hardest part of the job is the drive back to the distribution center to restock truck. The most enjoyable part was the freedom I had.
No Micromanaging, Steady hours, Weekends off
Long hours, No room for advancement, No customer interaction
The management was good.I had the opportunity to experience working with invoices inside the office, shipping/receiving, sorting out books into the certain boxes,was also a boxer by making boxes for books, stocking books on shelf where they have certain locations ID numbers,picking up bundles of magazines into the right categories, while finishing my own work at the end of the day i would ask other employees if they needed help for an example if i had some free time i work also tear books covers.
ROUTE DRIVER/MERCHANDISER (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – June 11, 2013
My day started around 6:00 am in the morning and ended around 2:00 pm, depending on the work load. I would deliver books and magazines to various retail stores. I would also merchandise some of the stores. The things I learned were how to switch out magazines and put them in the totes and write them up to be sent back to the depot. It was independent so I only saw my co-workers when I was at the warehouse to load and unload. They were very helpful at times. The hardest part of the job was dropping off totes that would sometimes add up to 30+ and picking them up. What I enjoyed most about it was not being supervised and working independently.
