Alot of work
Part Time Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 31, 2015
Their isn't anything in particular I don't like about the company. I don't understand why they update and change things every week, that has become somewhat frustrating. The Market Managers in my area (Baltimore) are very friendly and helpful. An increase in compensation to make the position more competitive would be nice,
Pros
Make your own work schedule, set your own routine
Cons
Tons of equipment to lug between stores, have to physically attend monthly meeting (not a conference call)

Good company but terrible work/life balance
Area Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 19, 2016
This a good, stable company. Management is great.
That being said... they expect their Area managers to work 60 hours per week.
"Anything it takes to get the job done" is their motto.

Because of this, they have very high turnover. Employees get burned out very fast.
Cons
Terrible work/life balance

Don't go on Medical leave !!!
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, VAApril 29, 2016
I was fine as a merchandiser with my job here NAM til I when on Medical leave. These people went behind my back and moved my territory and my supervisor. You can't truth these people at all. My work load was depleted and hours. The new supervisor didn't live in area. Had no clue as too what anybody needed. I couldn't stay the btch. than she tells me I need more training. How would you feel about this if you had been there for 18 months ? I truly loved this job. then this btch came in and destroyed everything.
Pros
could make our hours. Made some good marketing skills.
Cons
not enough money on gas card .and pay could be better

Work is wonderful and can work what hours during the day you prefer
Field Service Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 2, 2015
Overall the job as a field Merchandiser with name is wonderful, the flexibility of being able to work during the day around life and family is the biggest positive. Compensation is low compared to most of the other merchandising companys pay,. Job Security or advancement doesn't really apply. Management: my area manager Maria is cool, but doesn't communicate well or listen well for that matter. when she calls she is very rush rush not even taking a moment to listen if there may be a issue that caused you to not report on time. Very UNPROFESSIONAL dresser, women managers in this sort of field where you are in the public eye should never wear the low cut items nor the short skirts etc.
Pros
flexibility, easy work
Cons
managers and low pay

Great make your own schedule for the most part
Marketing Advertiser (Former Employee) –  North Portland, ORMarch 15, 2016
Typical week started with sorting advertising material based on stores requirements. Then driving to each store to place merchandise and photograph specific placement. Individual working environment except for monthly meeting with walk through and demo of merchandizing. Hardest part of job was abundant hours first week of month and less each week after. Not consistent hours. Best part was being able to take care of family matters as long as all jobs were done by due date.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
carrying a lot of materials

Nice place to work, bit to far to travel for most in Dutchess county
SR SYSTEMS and CITRIX ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) –  Norwalk, CTApril 9, 2016
Could be a little more relaxed, very up tight people who worked there. Most managers managed by intimidation and fear. They want most of the staff to work overtime just for the sake of working. Had nothing to do with deadlines. I believe if an employee meets his goals and his deadlines, nothing more to ask.

Pay isn't fair, storage of tons of equipment is expected and not compensated for

N/A (Former Employee) –  Wilton, CTApril 20, 2016
Typical work day is everyone enters at 9 and you can leave at 5 pm. Most of the time depending on which department you're in. I learned a lot from my role which I was in. I just didn't enjoy the culture or the management here personally.

Boring
Field Representative (Current Employee) –  Muskegon, MIMarch 5, 2016
While this job has it perks, its really boring. This job isn't hard at all, easy as a matter of fact no challenge at all. One this you will learn a lot about new product and how the advertising of that product works.

Wonderful caring company to work for!
REGIONAL MANAGER (Former Employee) –  RemoteJanuary 28, 2013
Mondays and Fridays I worked out of my home office. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I traveled. On those days I was on the road or boarding a plane by 6am. I learned all of my outstanding qualifications while working for this company. My Manager was a wonderful person, she was very helpful and made me succeed. My co-workers were great people and I am still in contact with them. The hardest part of the job was learning when to turn off work. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people all across the Northeast every week.
Pros
benifits
Cons
sometimes very long workdays
