Merchandiser (Current Employee) – WA – April 21, 2014
I really love this job. when things start getting too much, tired, exhausted, there is a break in the wave. I get holidays off and plenty of time to see my family. I do wish that the breaks where a little less time off. Every night it feels great you get to solve a puzzle. you get to see what you have accomplished every night, because by morning you should be finishing your set.
the overnight hours mean you can have a second job
Lead Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 19, 2017
As a merchandiser, you read a schematic and arrange the merchandise on the shelves accordingly. Simple, but not "easy" work. As a lead, your job never ends. Other managers and employees can call/text you at all hours of the day/night. You are basically working from the time you wake up until you close your eyes, and sometimes not even then, but are only paid from 9pm/4am (depending on which shift you work) until the work is done at the store. I treat my employees fairly and try to create a friendly work environment, but I was told that I "need to be meaner" to get them to work faster. I can't justify that philosophy in life/work.
Simple work, sometimes heavy workloads (think rearranging the entire soda/juice aisle in 1 night)
No benefits unless you're a supervisor or higher, no sick pay, random schedules, lots of time without work.

Reset Merchandiser (Current Employee) – CO – April 26, 2017
Everything about it is just awful. The hours are odd given that it is a night time gig. The pay is okay, but the days and the amount of hours you work is so inconsistent not to mention that there is a lot of traveling. I have only been on this job for about 9 weeks and so many have people have quit while I have been here (14 to be exact). Shady people, awful management, inconsistent days and hours of work, tons of traveling and pretty stressful job overall.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Olympia, WA – April 19, 2017
RMSI was task orientated, with a maximum amount of time allotted for each task, and the opportunity to complete tasks sooner if able. The schedule was to an extent up to the worker, ideally between 5 am and noon, when stores are less busy - an employee can roughly schedule themselves when and where works best for them. This was very helpful when my kids were young and I was working on my AA degree, as I could work while kids were in school and around my school schedule.
Very physical work, stores often not happy you're there performing resets.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Livermore, CA – April 19, 2017
It used to be a fun place to work even though you will never get a raise in pay with this company. Now however it is not even worth going into work. Management has over hired and deluded everyones hours of work so much so that you will be lucky to work 5 hours a day on the days you are scheduled to work which is only about 3 days a week at this point. If something does not change soon all the old time employees will quit and the new hires also. You also only get a break every 3 hours not 2 as is the norm everywhere else.
Team lead 2nd/ merchandiser (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – April 10, 2017
I liked the job, i had it for many years, but no career advancement. Met a loy of lifetime friends and the job was actually pretty easy if you know how to read and like puzzles. Problem solving is a must and working with in store personell could be difficult at times but other than that, it was fun.
Merchandising (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 4, 2017
pretty easy an good compensation if you like to work nights and not have to think too hARD THIS IS HE JOB FOR YOU. Also they say its part time but you cant leave even if someone else doesnt pick up the slack
Very fast paced and ever changing work environment.
Field Supervisor (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – March 23, 2017
Work was to be done as quick and precise as possible. The work environment is neither constant nor steady. Switching environments so much is good to help avoid complacency but does not allow for much comfort in routine.
Requires a lot of out of town work, good pay lot of overtime.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Bozeman, MT – March 1, 2017
Typically, we would meet up at where the out of town team was staying, then drive to one of the businesses we were employed by. We would be assigned a section to remodel. Teams of two. Generally 12 hour days Monday - Thursday with Friday being off.Paid drive times and mileage. A lot of independence and self reliance. Worked closely with each store and their management to insure quality work/
Guaranteed easy filler work for in between school/work
Night Stocker (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – February 20, 2017
As simply as I can say, it is the easiest job in the world to get if you can just get through the application process and have reliable transportation. Be aware, that this company hires mostly people with little to no education, the work hours will turn your days upside down, and the work is dull and boring. That being said I would really only recommend this job to someone who was truly in need of work and is willing to tolerate with a lot of negatives in order to make some money.
hours, occasional tight quarters, too many uneducated people with political opinions
Conversion Scanner (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – January 25, 2017
We work in 2 teams, fronters and scanners. The fronters position each product to have the barcode facing outside while the scanners come by and scan each product bay by bay. If a product is missing we use the products upc code.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 5, 2017
Absolutely terrible micro management from a inexperienced recruiter manager at corporate office who was hired as a friend of the HR director. Continually hired inexperienced people based on personal preference not merit or talent.
Recruiter manager did not know tax regulations, labor laws or even how to remotely recruit. Nepotism runs rampant in this company with little to no experience of upper management employees.
Rule of thumb at Rmsi is not what you know but who you know.
Turnover is nearly at 90%. Both my Trainer, my direct Supervisor and my co-recruiter all quit within 12 months.
RESET CREW (Current Employee) – Ventura County, CA – December 31, 2016
We work overnights from 10 pm - 6 am (or whenever finished) reorganizing shelves and product too match the given schematics at different Vons around the county. Management is very straight forward, relaxed, and all around makes you feel comfortable. My coworkers all aim to get the job done as efficiently as possible and are great communicating needs too. The most enjoyable part of the job is how relaxed it is; you go in, get your schematic, grab the necessary tools, and get to work. There is not much stress because the work is pretty straight forward and there isn't much of a distraction to sway you from your job since it's overnight. The hardest part of the job would be the fact that its overnight. You get used to it eventually but it can be to stay awake if you didn't nap prior to your shift.
relaxed environment, easy work, small crew, no drama
low pay, no benefits, gas wasted to travel around the county
