Very flexible work hours, but not a career
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  CASeptember 30, 2012
Your work schedule is very flexible, so you can't be late for work, it is a great job if you are a stay at home mom or have other obligations because the the schedule is so flexible. As a merchandiser you go into different stores and merchandise products such as books and magazines, you put new product out and organize it. The work is very easy, but it is also very mundane, and you are not learning new skills that you can transfer over to a new job. This is a part time job with no room for advancement. A good job if you are between jobs, but not something you want to do long term. Many merchandisers tend to be stay at home moms or retired people, this is just a part time job, not a career.
Pros
flexible schedule, easy work.
Cons
mundane work, no room for advancement, you don't get pay raises.

A day with SMS
Merchandiser (Part-time) (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 30, 2012
A typical work day consists of going to a few different retail stores and merchandising magazines. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with the different store managers. They can be a bit overwhelming, but can be tolerable to work with. For the most part, i work alone and days have a tendency to be long.
Pros
paid travel
Cons
store management, random long days
