I've been with RMS for three years and still make the same amount of 12.00 an hour. But with that, if the project is allotted at 45 minutes... I make 9.00 an hour. They offer bonuses quarterly, but if you receive just one email questioning your work...no bonus. I put explanations in the comment section, but no one reads them.
The company holds onto contracts with companies because they bid low just to get the work. The work usually takes longer, so more work and less pay. We used to work more with doing L'Oreal in Wal-Mart, but Wal-Mart kick RMS out at the first of the year, with Anderson Merchandising getting the L'Oreal contract. So now we only have Target, which isn't enough.
A lot of merchandisers come and go, yet they keep you at two stores. And even if you have a store, there may be another RMS merchandiser also working projects in that store. Very poor utilization of employees. Begging for stores doesn't work , as they want you to be "available" for covering stores at the last minute. This is usually due to a merchandiser quitting.
Flexible schedule and working alone.
