Independent Contractor
MERCHANDISE COORDINATOR (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJune 19, 2014
Pros: fun job
Cons: no real training
Made store visit, working like 2 to 3 times a month. I didn't quite like communicating with management through email and phone only.

THE WORST
Merchandise Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 28, 2014
Most unprofessional work environment I have ever been a part off. Zone 4 in NYC is a sorority house on 5th avenue. Literally a joke.

Company is way too serious about themself
freelance (Former Employee), honolulu hiApril 18, 2013
Pros: okay pay
Cons: micromanage and paperwork
Welcome to Hawaii!! Where the mainland sucks and is way to serious about things like beuaty products. I worked 2 visits for this company that had a very simple sunscreen and they just take themself way too serious. The sunscreen line literally had like 10 items that were great. But they micromanage, even from the mainland. I was required to take pictures – more... that made no sense and aubmit reports that they wanted to hear and write themself if they were able to. The expectations are ridiculous and unrealistic. – less

Not ethical company
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Fort wayne inJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: low hours, no benefits at all, no advancement, terrible managers
They will sell you out and blame you for all the problems. They make up things to get rid of you and dont even give you real or good reasons. They change their mind from week to week on what they want during a visit, and wont let you know till after visit. Then expect you to revisit for free. Managers never reply quickly, but expect you to call them – more... within a few minutes if they need to talk to you. – less

Good part-time job to have if you're a student
Stock Squad Associate (Current Employee), Miami, FLJanuary 1, 2013
Pros: good salary, flexible
Cons: no direction from management, no training, few hours
Very flexible scheduling, you have no one working with you so you work at your pace and time, very little direction from management though, so you're left to figure things out for yourself, but you'll get the hang of it eventually. Very good salary but few hours.

Unethical company
Merchandise Coordinator (Former Employee), CalfironiaOctober 8, 2012
Pros: didn't ever have to be face to face with management
Cons: management/communication is horrible, they throw you under the boss, gives you no room to ever defend yourself if something went wrong on a project
This company fools you into believing that you're the best worker for them. They will throw you under the bus to gain another advancement for themselves. The Field Training Manager and Staffing Manager for Zone 1 shouldn't even be apart of the company. They expect you to respond to them ASAP, but if you email/call them they respond a day later or never – more... at all. Quite often I'd send out an email and they'd never respond. I'd send out another and I was then told, I should have reminded them to respond or at least read my email. They treat you like an employee not as an actual contractor. Make sure to watch out for that. The company definitely needs some cleaning out and new management needs to be put through. – less

No advancement
Merchandiser (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 13, 2012
Pros: make your own schedule
Cons: company plays favortism
The company is based on feeding you a load of lies. There is no advancement as well as benefits. There are a lot of favoritism among the Field Training Managers. You can work as hard as you can, offer to take on more hours, submit detailed reports, but if you don't brown nose enough they will find reasons to terminate you.
