Lot's of driving
Sales Represenative (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKApril 10, 2018
Job required you to drive to stores throughout Oklahoma city and Guthrie and put up coupon machines and promotional signs. The job did a lot of wear and tear on my car. And the workload they gave me was insane for just starting out.
Pros
Work at your own pace.
Cons
Pay & wear and tear on my car.

Phoenix, AZ Zone
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 14, 2018
I loved what I did, I wasn't planning on leaving, I landed in the hospital for three days and I didn't have my cell phone on hand and only knew my moms number of the hand. I got sick from cleaning out my storage unit and moving back to Arizona.

Boston Zone my two area mangers I worked for were amazing and I couldn't say anything more. I am very happy to have had them both as my area mangers.

Fun and they really cared about their employees
Marketing Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 13, 2018
On a typical day I would receive my work supplies for the week at my house, check my handheld for jobs, go into stores and place different ads throughout the store. The management was great and trained their employees very well. The most enjoyable part was when I was done with my work for the week I had a sense of accomplishment. The hardest part was driving to all the different places especially when the weather was bad. I learned how to hang up ads and place floor ads accordingly throughout a store.
Pros
Celebrated birthdays, Breakfast during meetings, work when you want
Cons
Didn't compensate for the amount of driving

It was great to work my chosen hours
IN STORE REP (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 5, 2018
One week a month there was plenty of hours, the other 3 weeks of the month not enough. This was a 2nd job so 1 week out of the month was hard to manage added to my other full time job!

Experience very dependent on manager
Account Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 22, 2018
Fast paced, busy corporate environment. Often hard to keep up with other competitive digital agencies due to the company having such a large portfolio as well as there being lags in training and a disconnect of internal teams.

Enjoyable position
In-Store Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 20, 2018

It's a very relaxing and mellow paced work environment with lots of freedom
In Store Field Rep (Current Employee) –  Chatsworth, CAFebruary 14, 2018
Changing advertisements and rotating point of sales is what the job mostly consists of. I learned how to use the smart source items and tools used to add instant redeemable coupons in the grocery and drug stores I cover. The management is excellent. I have a good relationship with my boss and his boss. They're very friendly and easy going. The workplace very relaxing and you have a lot of freedom while you're working and you can choose when you want to work as long as everything is done by Thursday at 9pm. There isn't really a hard part of the job unless you wait till the last minute to close out your stores. This job is enjoyable because of the freedom you get to work whenever you want. That can be good and bad because this is a better job for someone who has a second job and does this on the side for extra pocket change. Average hours per week can be a little under 20. On the first and second weeks of the month you can work up to 28 hours which is what all adds up for the ad changing in all of your stores. The next 2 weeks of the month are the slowest and you could get a maximum of 10 hours with small merchandising jobs in the stores. You generally average around 70 hours of work a month.
Pros
Freedom to work whenever you want and essentially make your own schedule
Cons
Low hours, no benefits and no salary based career advancement for recent college grads

Easy but busy job
Independent Field Representative (Current Employee) –  New York, NY 10036January 28, 2018
Job consists of merchandising different stores on different weeks of the month. Very easy job, but it can be busy at times. You make your own schedule and take days off as needed...provided you get all your work done. All work is done independently.
Pros
Great co-workers/manager; easy job
Cons
Pay could be higher

As a mom that needs flexibility, this is a good job for extra cash. You are busier two weeks of the month than the other two. Training and management are great!

The Worst Company You Could Work For!
Not Disclosing (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 13, 2018
HR is a joke!
Terrible people. They’ll lie to your face and talk about you behind your back.
Disorganized and incompetent.
They pride themselves on company culture but there is no solidarity. It’s cut throat and if you try to speak up and make things better and it fall in line and shut your mouth you get fired quickly before anyone can agree with you.
It’s a step in the pond not a career.

Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Low Pay, Disorganized
