I enjoy this job more so than anything else I have done.
Sales Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – November 1, 2018
Tuesday and Fridays are the early morning start days. Sometimes I have to be there at 6 am, sometimes I have to be there earlier than that. It all depends on the size of the store, and what needs to be done by a certain time. I have noticed where a lot of people are complaining about no communication, no notice for early shifts, and a lot of random shift changes at the last minute. Let me say this, your boss will eagerly communicate with you. If your having issues taking days off, which are not being approved, then know that your district manager will let EVERYONE know at least three weeks in advance when there will be a block on vacation days on less it's an emergency. As far as no notice for early shifts, we are all given a two week pre-awareness activity to take which lets us know what day we will have to be in the store early to set modulars. So you do get two weeks advanced notice. The new schedule is terrible, but once again, if you communicate with your TSL and Distric manager, they will let you know of any adjustments that can be made to better benefit your ability to have a home life. The job is veryhands on and fast paced at times, which makes the day fly by. I like working alone and this job is perfect for that. I have been with the company for over a year now and i have gotten a raise so dont be fooled into thinking you will not get one peing part time. you just have to earn it.
Seasonal free products, hands on activities, great people to work with
Schedule issues(which can be worked around with good communication with your bosses), some store management is very hard to deal with.
