Answered

Never!!!! Some have worked 12 years without a raise! Somethings wrong with company getting 3 new CEO's in 4 years!

Answered

You can drive 20 miles up to 185 a day. I've done both but it depends on your stores (usually 2 or 3) or if you're covering an open territory. I drive about 2 hrs a day between my 3 stores.

Depending upon your geographic location, $10 to $12 per hour as a Merchandiser, getting employees a raise is extremely difficult for managers to do, as I am a Manager there. When somebody applies to another position in the company the Recruiters don't look at them, we have to push the issue for our good people to get their application looked at and really fight hard to get them to be interviewed. Over 4 years as a Manager and I have successfully helped 2 people get into higher positions, and it was an uphill battle, all while having to do my job. Take away from this what you will, it's a job.

Answered

Biweekly... every two weeks. You also get paid gas mileage every 15th and 30th of every month so that will help a little with income if you have more then one store.

I applied to the companys website. I had previous Merchandiser experience so u got a call fairly quickly. Was hired on the spot over the phone with the manager after doing a pre interview with a recruiter. Process was relatively easy.

Answered

The work is physical with some promotional work, pricing, merchandising and stocking in a client retail store chain or super market. The retail staff often is negative to outside merchandisers and difficult to work with..it takes good communication skills and the ability to get along with unhappy clients.
The Acosta management team is awful..they treat employees like robots, have high expectations with low pay and no incentives, nonpositive f or individual feedback and do not like even letting the employees talk about their job for co worker support..worst I have ever experienced.
