Flexible, but crazy inconsistent.
Retail Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – September 10, 2018
The best part of the job is being able to work (sort of) whenever you want. Most jobs have weekly deadlines (sometimes longer for bigger/extra jobs, sometimes shorter), but as long as you meet your deadlines and aren't in the stores at a time when the store manager doesn't want you there, you should be fine. Some store managers can be a little unreasonable with their reps, but most are fine. You're almost always working on your own, the only interaction you have is with store personnel, and that's pretty infrequent, so that could be an issue for especially social people. The downside to the flexibility is that it's flexible for the companies contracted too, so your hours can vary pretty wildly depending on which stores you have. I've gone from 50-60 hour weeks to five hour weeks, although that's not really the norm and it seems like they've taken steps to fix that a bit.
Variety of work. Flexible hours. Pay is pretty good, especially if you're efficient.
Hours inconsistent, not feasible as a full time job. Never really see co-workers, so it doesn't feel like you're really part of a team.
