A typical day at work at GLWS was usually up by 5 a.m in my personal vehicle at 5:30 a.m and on my way to my first account. I would have to merchandise anywhere from 5 stores to 10 a day. I learned a lot about the science of product placement and how simple changes in shelf height, product location, and pricing schemes could drastically affect the quantitative movement of a product. My management was nearly non-existent. This job was a self-managing job, you were responsible for you own time management, your own mileage logging, checking in with salesman, delivery drivers, and management at the retail stores you were located at. Co-workers were also nearly non-existent, you would rarely cross paths with any of the other merchandisers. Rarely would you meet up with the salesman of the location you were currently merchandising but even then it was only to quickly communicate things about product placement or where to put a display up or how to manage product overflow. The hardest part of the job was working by yourself everyday, the most enjoyable part of the job was the sense of accomplishment you got within yourself when you could look at an entire wine section that had been fully stocked, faced, rotated, and dusted by your hands.
