If you love to travel and see different parts of the country, a fun place to work. Great for retired people and those who have other source of income
Lead In Training (LIT) (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 30, 2015
Company invests in their people. Management promotes professionalism. Job structure requires flexibility, ability to work with different teams, (people). Difficult part of the job is the different shift schedules and different leadership styles because you don't stay on one team all the time. My husband and I working here together, so we get to travel and see different cities at the company's expense (during our time off)
Pros
Opportunity to learn on the job even if you do not have the experience. Good mentorship.
Cons
Not enough projects to keep you employed throughout the year.

Crazy work adventure
Field Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJanuary 28, 2013
A company based in North Carolina, which hires people from all over the country as merchandisers. A typical assignment would be, a notification e mail telling you where the job is, and when it starts, and that they have loaded your per diem account card with the necessary funding for room and board. You then make reservations at the hotel of your choice and go there. Most jobs are at night when the store is closed. You must be on time and you must show up. Don't you dare get sick, they will take $60 away from your per diem for every day you are out, and you won't get paid for any day you are out either. So it pretty much will cost you $140 a day to be out sick. Even if it is an emergency, they don't care, they will snap that money out of your account by lunch-time.That said, expect to be working with people who are sick or have dental issues, because they can't afford to call in and get care. Fun things are the road trips, working at night while the store is closed, making new friends and getting away from the b.s. at home. The pay is $10 an hour, $420 a week for the hotel and food. They also reimburse you for the hours spent driving to the assignment and the mileage. I forget how much exactly, but it is a fair amount. You can do well especially if you have a partner or two, and you can find a hotel room to share that costs less than the per diem rate, because you get to keep any money left over. So if you get $60 a day and your partner does too, and you get a room for $50 a day, you get to keep the remaining $70. Sometimes you get a great team leader and it's always fun, and  more... sometimes you get a jerk team leader that makes things suck. You get Friday and Saturday night off so you can go out and have some fun. You will learn a lot. You will probably lose weight. You will probably lose hair. You might even lose teeth. You will probably lose any value you may have left on your car due to the high miles and wear. You will never be able to shop in a store again without facing products on the shelves and straightening end caps. It's great for young people to get away from home and make some money, good for couples without children. NOT good if you have health issues, can't walk a lot or can not work at night. You must have a decent car. Some co-workers are very nice, and some are very weird but it is always interesting. Most stores they do are Lowe's, Wal Mart, JoAnn Fabrics, Ikea, and Dollar General. There are no benefits and no guarantee of constant work, but they are usually keeping everyone busy 9 months out of the year. It will taper off in October and plan on being layed off for the holidays, so sock some money away or you will be very sorry. They do not prepare you to be layed off. You could be sent out to do a month long project and then boom they lay you off in the first week. But hey, it's better than sitting at home broke doing nothing. It gives the old quote "it's not a job, it's an adventure.." a whole new meaning. I have to admit, as weird as it was, I enjoyed it. Oh, and they give you free t shirts. Hope this helps you in your job search.  less
