Fast Paced, Busy, Fun Workplace
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Palm Beach, FL – August 9, 2017
A typical day of a store merchandiser team member would include taking truck to floor merchandise and making sure everything that hits the floor is presented in the proper manner according to Saks standards. I learned how to operate a ticketeting gun, complete transfers, perform RTV's, wrap, pack and send packages, fill .com/store to store locator orders. You will be assigned one area to maintain, mine of which switched from filling locator orders, to mens merchandising and then women's shoes merchandising. The managers are very involved with salespeople, and achieving numbers but leaves SMT to the backburner I feel. Management was good mostly, but I feel there is a lot that is hidden to us. The hardest part of the job is knowing you can put in your all into your work and still end up without a job. The most enjoyable part was going to work everyday doing something I loved, which was fashion and merchandising.
