Neat idea, not enough work cancel more than assign
Minion (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – January 6, 2016
You get to pick when an where. So thats good, but theres no pay in the mileage. They stop sending email notices randomly, they say first come but theyre screening who gets which. The dates you pick are always cancelled, maybe one out of 20 wont be. You cancel an get pointed, they cancel its just normal. Some of the leads are morons, ie kevin spauge. You spend all night moving heavy stuff to move it right back because their clueless af. You have those people that show up, but have nothing to work with an want to lose your stuff. Was fun to try, but a joke
Pick the dates an spots
The leads, the lack of work an all the cancelled jobs
I only work part time I get to pick where and when
Merchandising (Current Employee) – NC – January 5, 2014
It's nothing special, the people we I work with are experienced never rookies that are sent in for the body count. That is the hardest part working with people who don't know and won't ask. Management is usually whoever we are working with last week it was an electronic store they were great helped us all very much. I have learned if it is a little different than what I am used to I ask the ones who make it look easy. Merchandising is all the same cleaning, organizing, than putting it back according to schematic. At the same time its all different each client has their own way they want it done. So I have learned to pay attention to direction you won't have to do it again. Most enjoyable part is putting the tags up, not just done but done well old school.
Place where you can get some hours if you are willing to work hard to get and keep them
Retail Remodel and Resets (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – August 4, 2014
There is a lot of hours of work with this company if you are willing to work really hard and have a few breaks. Management can be very thankful but also not well trained and have poor people skills. The hardest part of the job is working while stores are open and the temperatures get a little excessive. You will get very dirty and work really hard.

We are required to changing out discontinued products and rearranging shelves to accommodate the new product to replace the discontinued items. These changes were done by using a plan O Grams (POG) to put product back on shelves. It is something like a blueprint. The POG was used to change the elevations on metal stationary shelves to the right height. In all situations you had to have a measuring tape, two screw drivers 1/4" flat head and a #2 Phillips these tool you had to have. In some cases you needed a standard claw hammer and crow-bar. If required the boss would use a sledge hammer and a pry tool.
you were paid for showing up. and paid for miles if over 50 miles

Working independently, time management, usually worked with a group of no more the tow or three for each product. The hardest part of the job was the climbing up over six feet hieghts. Enjoyed the traveling to different vendors and cities.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Utah – September 26, 2014
Do a 9 day job have to wait a month to get paid in full. I have filed a wage claim case against this company with the Utah Labor Commission; do to the fact that I was laid off the day before the job ended, and was told that I would not receive a check for 4 days out of the 8 that I worked until 9 days later, then I would receive another check a week later for the last 4 days that I worked. So lets see here.....I work and bust my but for 8 days get laid off and then have to wait a month to get paid. WRONG!!!!!! IT IS AGAINST THE LAW NOT TO PAY WITHIN 24 HOURS IF YOU ARE LAID OFF OR TERMINATED IN THE STATE OF UTAH. My husband who is a regional supervisor for a future 500 telecom company feels and believes that this is a fly by night company. Family Dollar hirers a Union company to do all the electrical but uses this company for merchandising. Yeah they will give you a lot of work on your dashboard and send you to lots of jobs; though you will have to wait a month of Sundays to get paid for them.

I just recently found out I had been blocked from some job or company (they are contracted too) and for several months nobody contacted me or informed me of this. Now I can't get anybody to answer the phones at this company to get a explaination I deserve that much at least
pay is average
not enough work to keep you busy; not for sure if you will get approved for positions you apply for
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – USA – February 24, 2014
When I applied to work here I had applied for something totally different than the job I was sent to. The client that was running the show had no clue about anything and kept everyone confused. The client was non stop on everyone's case and if you got caught even just going to the restroom you were questioned as to where you were at. Even if you were just trying to figure out the way something was installed you were asked what you were doing and why.They were slave drivers and you were watched like a prisoner. By the end of the job you were beat up from the work and felt like someone had beaten you, extremely sore and could hardly walk from being worked to death.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Everywhere – December 10, 2012
One of the worst companies to work for. They are not reliable. They take forever to approve pay. It's too hard of labor for the small amount you are paid. Long hours. Not a good company to be employed by.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – New Haven, IL – March 8, 2015
I've enjoyed this position greatly, as it's very flexible (you sign up for each assignment) and it pays decently. I'd recommend this to anyone in a rural area who doesn't have connections with the locals.
