Productive fun with merchandiser product into retail stores
Merchandiser Vendor (Former Employee), Huntersville, NCJuly 23, 2014
Pros: work freedom, display designing, great interaction with the customers
Cons: no healthcare, short breaks
I was a lead merchandiser. I was in charge of a small group of peoples. We would pull distress product off the tables and replace with fresh looking product. We would build displays out on tables in according with that month plant-o-gram. We would help customer figure out planting situation. Hardest part of a day job would be not having the items that – more... may be on a sales ad. Best part of it all is watching a customer walk away knowing something new about what they was purchasing in the store. – less

Beautiful scenery and sense of calmness.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Saint Mary's, GeorgiaJuly 3, 2014
Pros: independent work time, beautiful view.
Cons: working in the rain
Start the day off maintaining plants and growing produce upkeeping with physical appearance. Organize merchandise on shelves. Watering and rotating of merchandise for overall health of the products. Maintained cleanliness workplace environment. I've learned how to present colors with merchandise for production sales. I did not have any other co-worker, – more... I worked by myself most of the time. Hardest part of the job was to figure out problems by myself since there were nobody to help assist me, Most enjoyable part of the job was being outside in a beautiful presentation of plants and flowers. – less

Good learning experience/horticulture. Very fast pasted in the summer moths. Fun place to work with plants
Plant Merchandiser (Current Employee), Washington, NCMay 16, 2014
We safety check our isles. Unload vendor carts and put plants/products where they are to go. I have learned a lot about plants and how to answer peoples questions about them. Management could be more hands on. Co-Workers need to be more team player minded. Hardest part of the job is dealing with adverse weather conditions and not getting enough hours. – more... the most enjoyable part is talking with the customers and setting tables in pretty displays. – less

Organizing plants and flowers (Former Employee), Shelby, NCMarch 6, 2014
My day at Plant Partners was putting flowers and plants in there right positions on the tables to make sure the public could find them. I learned what flowers could be planted when and what season to plant them in. My coworkers was always willing to help me learn my job better. The hardest part was we were outside and the weather was not always pleasant, – more... but I still loved this job. It was an very interesting job and I loved learning about flowers and plants. – less

ZERO Work/Life Balance
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Rock Hill, SCNovember 7, 2013
Pros: work o utside
Cons: no healthcare, no benefits, no saturdays off, no schedule, no plans, no life, lousy pay.
I started as a merchandiser with Stacy's Greenhouses before it was bought out by Metrolina. Things have gone dramatically downhill since! NO LIFE possible with this position. NEVER know when, or if, I am going to be working, sometimes until after I should already have left for work that day. I do not get my hours for the week usually until the week – more... is at least half over! No way to plan. No way to make appointments. No way to see friends or family. Sometimes it is so bad that I don't know until half-way through my day how many hours I am going to work that day! IMPOSSIBLE! I absolutely cannot recommend this job to anyone who wants to have a life AND a job. Plus, never a Saturday off. Bah Humbug! – less

Fun workplace with flexible hours
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Huntersville, NCJuly 31, 2013
Pros: the hours were flexible
Cons: working in the rain and heat.
Being able to go a store and changing it from being very unorganized and not looking good to being able to look back after the work is done at how wonderful all the flowers and organizational flow looks. Learning the different types of all flowers and what they do in your garden and in landscapes.

Don't bother unless you want to work 2 months.
merchandiser (Former Employee), virginiaJune 16, 2013
Pros: plants
Cons: management lies
The job is okay but management lied to me and told me that it would be seasonal and that it would consist of spring and fall. Apparently there is no fall. They hired a whole bunch of us and now they will terminate us and only keep one person on per store. For the pay and the type of work you can certainly do better. I was told that I would have to reapply – more... next year for them. Geez. – less

Merchandiser (Former Employee), Paragould, ARMarch 25, 2013
Pros: hours & pay was good. liked learning new things daily.
Cons: it was a seasonal job only and the heat was unreal at times.
I enjoyed making decisions on what looked best for table arrangements along with the Plan-o-grams. You have to like working outside and with plants & trees. It was also nice to work with actual employees of the store.
