great part time job or second income
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Ashtabula, OHJanuary 20, 2019
nice company to work for. If the pay was higher i think i would have stayed longer. You can travel pretty far and the wear and tear on your car adds up.

Like working for them....
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Sarasota, FLJanuary 12, 2019
I like working for this company, but it would be nice to make more an hour. And to get more hours. You get hours the first two weeks, and then the last two weeks not many hours.
Pros
Easy job
Cons
Not enough hours or pay

More headache than it is worth
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  VirginiaJanuary 4, 2019
This is not like any other merchandising job I've ever done in the last 20 years. If you are used to signing onto jobs, doing them quickly and efficiently, then going on to the next, you will not like this one.
The materials you have to pick up from storage take over your car, house, mind. Missing materials are your responsibility, you have to sort for hours, count and record. You also have to instantly respond to all emails even when you are not "working."
We were also expected to go and count equipment in the storage shed.
As a long-time professional merchandiser I like scheduling my own work hours and have days off. Usually to work for another company to get hours. NAM makes that very difficult to impossible. I was basically on call every day because of up to 9 emails a day besides sudden changes.
I also trained other new people even when I was still new, covered for people as they quit. Had to drive to their homes to retrieve materials then was told I went over my alotted hours. I guess that, too, was supposed to be unpaid.
I quit when after a few months I found out that the person I was training was making $3 more an hour than me! With fewer qualifications.
News America needs to get it together so employees only have to work "in store." Especially for the low pay so they are free to work other jobs (as most do).
Only someone with very little merchandising experience would appreciate this job.
Pros
Can't think of any.
Cons
There is no work-life balance. Low low low pay.

Flexible work, low pay
In-Store Representative (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 10, 2018
Great management, flexible schedule. Good for a little extra money. You do get paid for travel and time spent doing anything work-related, but it doesn’t add up to a whole lot.
Pros
Flexible, manager
Cons
Low pay, large amount of ads and supplies to keep in car and garage

Great supervisor but company doesn’t want to pay fairly.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  OhioOctober 29, 2018
Worked for the most amazing supervisor ever, she tried to make your job as easy for each of us as possible and would actually listen to all we had to say. The company NAM did not feel it was necessary to pay a fair wage and at my last raise I received 19 cents , which felt like like a slap in the face. During the year prior to receiving that raise, I did not only work my job but helped with other employees tasks as well, to only end up getting nothing for my extra work. If you’re looking for just a little extra money each week with no benefits but flex hours, no paid vacations days or sick time this is the job you may want to look into. I was with the company for almost 2 years and was not even making $10.00 an hour, I’m sure it depends on the area of the country as to what they pay per hour, but it’s not even enough with your gas card and your $35.00 per month for the wear and tear on you vehicle. If this company would pay a fair wage I’m sure there would be less turn over, and they also need to in service some of their supervisors, as to how to be kinder to their employees.
Pros
flex hour, paid weekly
Cons
Pick up days for signs, handheld software problems, pay was very low.

Corporate Greed
Merchandiser/Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Fairmont, MNOctober 24, 2018
It is not hard work but pay is well below, for a Merchandiser, compared to other companies.

Area managers get company vehicles, paid gas, and unlimited motel stays.

If you want to put major wear and tear on your car for low pay then this is the job for you!
Pros
You get paid
Cons
Break even after personal costs

Fun, easy fast pace
Cart Rep (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXSeptember 25, 2018
I love working for News America Marketing! Management was horrible! She said one thing then turned around and said another. Very unprofessional and rude Management who spoke about her other employees as well as how much they were getting paid, just a lot of stuff with that lady.
Honestly the easiest job I've ever had, pay was not too bad either. Got paid mileage and drive time and the best part was getting paid weekly! If it wasn't for the horrible managment. I would still be working for the company.
Pros
Great pay, Easy work, Paid Mileage, Paid Admin time, Paid drive time, internet expenses paid
Cons
Management was nothing but drama and unprofessional.

Certified Rep Trainer (Current Employee) –  Wilton, CTAugust 21, 2018
Flexible on times, for the most part. Occasionally they'll drop a job on you without any warning that needs to be done in a day but for the most part you have 7 days to work anytime you want to get it done.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
no vacation, no sick pay, no healthcare

Quality Assurance Risk Auditor-Trainer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 18, 2018
I was working in Puerto Rico for this company and it was what I needed at the moment. Gave me the independence and the opportunity to work on my own and from my home.
Pros
a field job that enables you to choose time and day to do it.

lots of traveling in the city
