Horrible company to work for as far as merchandising goes. Decent pay in this economy but goodluck finding or moving up to full time positions. Also expect to work all weekends.
Workload is ridiculous. Kraft micromanages EVERYTHING. They have this new "process" where u have to follow every single step of your day to a T and be certified in it. Hey kraft, its stocking shelves not rocket science. The process is a joke and does not work better or help things get done faster. Your avg 8hr day your have to hit around 4 stores and stock about 80 cases per store. A 4hr day about half that and all by yourself. Working 4hrs felt like 8 and working 8hrs felt like working 16. A lot of times I didn't have enough time to finish in the alotted time and went over but just logged in whatever hours I was told to work to avoid getting in trouble and getting bitched at by the sales reps to work faster. So any extra time I wasn't getting paid for. I was desperate for work so I just bit the bullet. It was so depressing doing all that work and to see that measly paycheck every 2 wks.
Its a thankless job. The sales reps get all the credit for the work you do. All they do is walk each store, trying to look important, with a computer and punch in the orders. They are the immediate day to day boss for the merch's who assign your workload. We do all the labor.
Like I said its darn near impossible to move up in the company. I met part timers who were working 5+ yrs and still waiting to move up to full time. Its so crazy its like full timers are looked as if they are presidents or ceo's to part timers. Its a joke.
I was able to find a similar full time job with benefits in the hardware industry a couple months later with better pay and less workload, and no BS strict "process". We only have to service one store per day and I usually have one or two co workers with me. Thank God!!!
Bottom line is stay away from this company unless you are truly desperate for work.
