Productive Environment, Great Management
Anon (Current Employee) –  PANovember 10, 2017
Management is kind, caring and flexible.

The work is not difficult, demanding but not difficult. You can do resets or remodels in a team or individually. The hardest part of the job is reading the planogram, the easiest is showing up.

Yes you have to use your own car but they do pay mileage and you can travel, see more the your local area.

It's like any job, if you have a bad attitude or cause issues for yourself of course there's repercussions. Overall keep your nose clean and do your job ask questions and you'll be fine.. there's opportunities if you look for them..

Most of all not all divisions operate the same or within the same culture.
Pros
Great environment, Per diem, flexible schedules, mileage reimbursement, travel pay, paid hotels and flights etc.
Cons
Mileage reimbursement, sometimes short notice

Room for improvement
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  United StatesNovember 10, 2017
The work is simple and easy to learn. However, it is repetitive and takes a toll on your body. The hours go from 40 a week to 0 a week without notice. Communication is lacking and job security is basically non-existent. This job leaves you feeling drained, under appreciated and like you aren’t valued.
Pros
travel, meet a lot of people, no weekends
Cons
Inconsistent hours, management, lack of communication, low pay, no benefits

Good employee bad company
TEAM LEAD MERCHANDISER (Current Employee) –  Itasca, ILNovember 10, 2017

Pros
Fun
Cons
No raise, no paid vacation, no room for improvement

Where a 1/4" inch is life and death
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CANovember 3, 2017
This seven-week stint into the world of resets in retail stores did get me into good shape, paid exercise if you will. But the rest of it was unpleasant: thuggish supervisors, a humorless lead, and an obsessive/compulsive liaison who would have a fit if a shelf tag was more than a 1/4" offset from the product it referred to. These stores were filthy, yet we were expected to restore shelves to like-new condition.

They did follow all labor laws, allowing for breaks and lunches, and did not expect you to free time. It's drudging and back breaking work, often in cold conditions when working dairy or frozen foods. I'm glad I was Smart enough to make my Final day sooner than later.

Supervisors are willing to work with you
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Tenino, WAOctober 19, 2017
Some supervisors will try and work with your schedule and keep you working even on the down weeks. Some supervisors are better than others and shouldn't be in the position. I personally haven't had a "bad" experience but have heard of others having some.

Physical labor and hard on your body
Merchandiser/Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 18, 2017
Working as an outside vendor inside a grocery store is hard on your body. You're on hard concrete all day long and it tears you up. Extensive travel using your own vehicle is required and pay is far toooooo low for that kind of wear and tear on your vehicle. Expect to need to get up at three or four in the morning in order to get ready for work and allow for drive time to get to the job site which can be sometimes a couple hours away or even more.
Pros
Travel to lots of places
Cons
You are required to drive your own vehicle! Low pay! Physical labor!

Planogram Analyst (Current Employee) –  Carlisle, PAOctober 16, 2017
Would not recommend, favoritism is key if you'd like to advance in anyway. Horrible pay structure and company culture. Would not recommend whatsoever.

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 14, 2017
SAS Retail Services is a terrible company to work for because the pay is terrible, the hours are inconsistent, and management are incompetent. Don't work for SAS Retail Services unless you want to work for company that is incompetent, inconsistent, and just plain terrible
