Tasks for the day are all done by the company and we had a deadline to meet. I learned a lot about product placement, company culture, and marketing. Management were good team players and open minded. Workplace culture was filled with workaholics. (Doesn't hurt to work) The hardest part of the job getting sent to a different location with 2 hr + time difference. Enjoyable part of the job is having everyone be happy by contributing to the table.

Unfortunately I can only give this company 3 stars it has a lot of pros you get paid per diem and that's really good if you have your wife or girlfriend or you can get a coworker to ride with you the pay is good they also reimburse you gas money the down side is the work they do t give you enough and all the benefits any worth nothing if you only get 4 days a month maybe if you have more experience start out with the will put you at more jobs but it's hard to get real good if you only work once a month
Perdiem expenses paid
Not enough work inless your a lead or you have experience
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Brownsville, TX – January 25, 2017
Working with various companies throughout the years I have found in my experience most do not have the ability to function out side the box. It was to my good fortune I came across pro vantage which operates with technology to assist with its every day functions. You are able to view hours, pay and the open door policy to call the office makes a great venue for communication.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – January 21, 2016
work varies from day to day depending on overall progress of the project. didnt learn anything i didnt already know other than how to work a pallet jack. management was slightly disorganized but bearable. co-workers were great but some temp workers would take unauthorized breaks. there was no particular part of the job that was more difficult than others but the job was very demanding. best part of the job was the co-workers.
it was a good challange
they require regular trips around the US for work.
Field Representative/ M.I.T (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – January 11, 2014
Was able to travel all over the United States. An have mini vacations while I was able to work during week. Driving all over did put some wear and tear on my vehicle. Company started deducting drive time out of home state. So we were having to pay from job to job being 1000 miles away from home.
productive and fast paced work environment. Heavy lifting.

Field Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – January 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, andmore... 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
decent pay, travel, good excercise, learn a lot, drive time and mileage reimbursement
