Garden Merchandiser (Former Employee) – South Carolina – October 29, 2014
Fast paced job that has no future! SRS lost the contract with Berry and started cutting hours early in the season. Management is a JOKE, supervisors are clueless about plants or garden for that matter. My area manager was a gutless liar. Contentiously creating problems where and when there were none. This job is no longer in existence and SRS did nothing to help find new positions.
Garden Center Team- Merchandiser (Former Employee) – East Texas – October 25, 2014
Probably the best part time job I've ever had. Even though working in this position is very independent, and labor intensive, you still get a sense of being on team. There is always someone to help you should you get stuck or find yourself not knowing what to do. I traveled between Longview, Tyler, Mt. Pleasant, and Texarkana every other day, which I didn't mind at all because I love to drive, and you also receive Time and Mileage. The only downside for me was being the middle man between Sigretail, and the Managers at the stores we had merchandise in. A couple of the store managers were extremely passive-aggressive towards me, and that's a problem because clear communication between The Store and Sigretail is very important.
very flexible schedule, time and mileage (when traveling), great co workers

Bosch Pro Center Expert (Former Employee) – Lombard, IL – January 29, 2014
Contracted by Signature to Bosch to be in-store representation. Felt more commodity than person. The emphasis was on clock awareness than in building relationships. The management from Signature were nice to work with but were focused on making sure we fulfilled their contractual obligations.
Temporary Construction Team (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – August 23, 2012
There are too many cooks in the kitchen. A normal work day consisted of meeting at the the store being worked on. Having 4-6 managers telling you conflicting things to do. People getting fired and replaced almost every day. The work was easy, just cleaning and setting planograms, but if not done quick enough or if they didn't like you, you were gone. Terrible management and terrible work ethic.
Territory service representative (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – June 28, 2013
I worked with store management to maintain and insure display integrity. Keeping product at an acceptable level. I learned about various grades of pine and composite molding products. My co-workers were helpful and positive. The hardest part of my job was coordinating activities with store associates. I enjoyed working with store staff and worked well with them.
Field Service Rep (Former Employee) – Wilkes Barre, PA – August 22, 2012
Great managers really understanding and easy going... that said communication between The Home Depot and SRS was lacking if best. easy job just lots of B.S. Hardest part of job was dealing with power trippy Dept Heads and no COMMUNICATION!
freedom, management, pay
communication between different companys. no company car, travel way too far, no room for advancement in area
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Lombard, IL – January 28, 2014
This company could do great things unfortunately for the poor leadership, which stems from the top. They crucify any idea that requires the tiniest investment and demand spending cuts no matter what safety or ethical issues it may cause.
Bosch Vendor/Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 3, 2013
Working with the Bosch company was great, but working with signature retail services wasn't great at all. Signature was very counterproductive and unorganized with the Bosch reps and may of us just preferred to deal with Bosch directly.
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – various locations – August 8, 2012
Great place to work. Good balance between physical, technical, and customer service work. If you do the job you are hired to do management doesn't micro manage your work day. I enjoyed the freedom the work offered.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 10, 2011
I enjoyed my time at SRS, but The Home Depot's restructuring and constant changes in the merchandising and vendor program at my time with SRS felt unstable. Hopefully, things are more concrete on the side of THD and their changes are done for awhile.
Construction Lead (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 29, 2013
the travel is good, I work in many different co. They try to keep me working all year . I have to figure out problems and make pogs and signage work sometimes. Clean, set and make items fit. I don't care to say more.
