Merchandising Specialist (Former Employee) – Portage, MI, Okemos, East Lansing, Lansing – October 3, 2018
You are expected to pay for everything yourself as an "Independent Contractor" but you don't make or work enough to write anything off. All the extra stuff you do like download the weekly documents, print out floor plans, sales ads, price adjustments, and training updates and questions you do not get paid for the prep or supplies (ink, paper, gas, travel time, car maintenance).
You are expected to go to the stores pull the back stock, take inventory from a large, long list you print out for individual model, color and store placement.
take inventory, locate certain model colors all over the store, set up, take down displays, mannequins signs in a 2 hour time limit while help any customers (Sales floor job).
Take a before & after photo from every angle. I had to increase and pay for additional data storage on my phone to do this job (no compensation for)
average pay is $12. 00 for a job they want done is 2 hours that takes atlas 4. If no before picture taken - no pay.
You also train yourself.
I had to leave, it was costing me more to work for the company than what was paid.
