Pros: the travel seeing new places n people
Cons: the only con is if you have family n kids
This is a traveling Job. We do store resets for companies like Lowes, Walmart, Joanns fabric, The Container Stores, Dollar general, and others. Our duties are to move and reset runs\isles to new store layout. Most runs move, some don't. We are also responsible for moving and replacing merchandise via planagrams or photograms. Keeping track of damages, – more... P.O.D.'s, clearance items. This is a learning process every night you go to work. As for most jobs, the work environment is what u make of it. Now in the Container stores there environment is the best. positive recognition for everything. Great Communication is a must for a work place. Knowing how to listen to employees and addressing problems\situations. Provantage has company meetings weekly and work shops once a month, this is all on conference calls. Which allows them to have feed back throughout the company. The hardest part of the job is being away from family. – less

Assistant Team Leader (Current Employee), Raleigh, NC – December 13, 2012
I learn different everyday techniques on how to do it myself on little jobs that the average person wished they had an easier way of doing. We set up new stores that are empty and work with steel to build shelves and set all of our retailers product and pricing. The hardest part of the job would be learning how to work with different types of people – more... and personalities. The most enjoyable part is seeing different places and learning different cultures. – less

Pros: you dont work for the whole week.
Cons: standing for long hours
you have to be trustworthy and obedient especially if you are working at a store. you have to make sure that the store manager is aware that you have arrived so that he can show you where to put your table in a way that will not disrupt his costumers. be friendly and kind to peopl e who want to know more about the product.
