Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Cottonwood, AZ – May 24, 2014
I arrive early in the morning and identify my load in receiving. I take my load to the book/magazine section of the store. I replace the old magazines with the new ones. I then decide which will stay and which will be returned. I attempt to make the display as attractive as possible. I then pack up the returns and return them to receiving. This job may sound easy, but in fact is quite difficult. It involves a variety of skills, including decision making, time management, heavy lifting, and interaction with both customers and store managers.
If you like working alone, it's great. My supervisor was not the nicest. Very condescending so I hated when I had no choice but to call her. The pay was $10/hr which sounded good, but the hours didn't amount to much at all per week. I was told I would have all the stores that got magazine services in my area, unfortunately there was already an employee working them, but that he just wasn't going to work out. She took the store with the most hours from him and gave to me in hopes that he would just quit. Which never happened. Even after he was banned from another store and I was then given that one and no more.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 29, 2014
This job is different then the my other one; see with this job I can travel to and from my stores alone. Every Thursday morning I get up about 7 am and began traveling to my stores. I arrive at my stores and began to remove the old product from the shelves then I began to put out the new product. With this job I don't have co-workers working with me I do my stores alone. When my stores are complete I than log into my company website and record my time.
Magazine Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Hermitage, PA – March 27, 2014
Terrible Company. Don't Pay for hours you work. Field Manager don't care. Your allotted only so many hours, and it takes a little longer than they say. No Communication. If you quit they don't pay you for the time you worked. There is no Customer Service when you try to call.
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) – East Point, GA – March 6, 2014
Gather reports and forms to execute daily procedures. Packaged items to be shipped off to different locations. Worked with muticultural individuals. Able to enhance my skills in the spanish language because of my co-workers. Management was about getting the job done but easy-going at the same time. The hardest part of the job was low hours.
My day at work is working with people in the stores and making sure that everything is right for the customers. I strive to provide our clients, with the very best in sales and marketing, operational excellence and other services that drive measurable results.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Parkesburg, PA – January 5, 2014
I absolutely love working for this company. It is the most satisfying job I have ever had. The hours are great and my Manager is very easy to work for and knows how to do his job well. It is only part time, so it's not a high paying job, but I enjoy going in and doing my best.
Great work ethic. Great Managers. You can do your job just about anytime you want within reason.
Merchandiser/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Gurnee, IL – December 22, 2013
It was not work to me . I enjoyed going to work everyday. I learned a great deal about customer service and retail sales ,marketing , and problem solving skills . Management was always supportive and their when they were needed. Mostly I worked alone ,but co-workers were always a phone call away or would show up to lend a helping hand if necessary . The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy totes loaded with magazines and books ,but you learn quickly how to work smart not hard .However , I am middle aged female and it didn't stop me from returning to work . The best part of the job was that I got to meet and help all different kinds of people who had all different kinds of interests. I enjoyed helping them find what they were looking for and if we didn't have what they were looking for, I would give a shout out to my field manager /supervisor and find out were/which account carried it ,and if not if we could look into getting it in our stores.

Supposed to be Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Bonita Springs – November 2, 2013
Was hired as "Sales rep." Was a glorified call center job. Work day was calling on dead accounts that didn't want anything to do with Source. Company has been bankrupt and is barely surviving. Print media is a dying breed and it won't be long before Lee County pulls the plug on their $$$ to keep this company going.
Truck Driver/Logistics (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – October 21, 2013
Was a good company to work for. I was always treated good. The pay was decent and the benifits were okay. As a magazine distributer and slowing book and magazine sales they laid off the delivery drivers.
