ASSISTANT TEAM LEAD (Current Employee) – Salem, or – January 16, 2019
I love my team and I'm very good at what I do, but the management is terrible. If this company would pay the people the deserved amount, the employees would care more about actually showing up for the job and be more reliable. It's also a very tedious job so they'd actually do their job alot better if they get better pay.
Retail Merchandiser (Part-Time) (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 14, 2019
I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone. They treat you poorly when you don't have enough experience with the job. The lead in the North Seattle area just stands around on her phone being hypocritical. They tell you that you can move on but then talks bad about you behind your back. toid them I had mental health problems and they didn't want to accommodate and try to make up another than listening to the fact that I have mental health problems and try to accommodate. They won't take formal complaints about anyone. Don't train people right or tells instructions minutes after you to put things back together or to re-stock shelves. No chance in advancement, no chances at raises. They keep people at (in Seattle) 15.45 an hr. even when you have worked with them for over a year. They just don't treat you fairly or accommodate to your disabilities or needs to abetter Job at the work space.
loved the general idea of the job
Don't like how people talk about you behind your back, not enough pay to deal with being treated like a slave and a low-class citizen, not accommodating to one's mental disabilities.
Forget y’all (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 12, 2019
This company is horrible, they lack pay, they never get back to you when your trying to let them know of your delayed pay. They never respond to anything as a matter of fact .. This company sucks and honestly i see it not only the Milwaukee area!
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 6, 2019
I wrote a bad review before and I was hoping maybe something would change but they are still advertising the same way so I expect they are still working the same way.
The pay is awful as you have to drive long distances and get less than 7 cents a mile for it and as to them saying you get paid for your drive time, that is not true. You only get $20 a day for food and you can't even eat fast food for that amount.
The hotel you get is awful and you have to share a room. You are not told anything about this until you get to the hotel and find out. Some people have to share a room with a person of the opposite sex that is a complete stranger to them.
You are not given any instructions when you start work and you are not told who you will be meeting with when you get to the place you're working and not told where to meet the person. Even after asking these questions, they were not answered for me. As a matter of fact, I got no communication with anyone until about two days before my work was to begin.
If this is not enough to make you run the other way, just go to work for them for just one night and you will see drunks and drug addicts cussing in front of customers and no one knowing what they are doing. This will do the trick if you are any kind of normal worker at all.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Orange County, CA – January 4, 2019
Working with SAS Retail Services allows me to be productive social with my co workers. While working, we are assigned with a planograms to either rearrange inventory or move a section of the store to a different location. Each assessment can vary depending on the project. If it is a Reset project, it is usually done within the day. If it is a Remodel project it can take up to weeks or months depending on the store. The management also varies on who it at the store at the time. We are assigned a schedule for which Giant Food Store we have to go to via text messages.
Everything changed once the company was bought out.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – January 4, 2019
Everything about why I loved working for the company in the first place is gone. There used to be a lot of opportunity to travel, see new places and meet new people while also working. Now the new owners are penny pinching so hard they dont want anyone traveling too far because they no longer want to pay for hotels or rentals or plane tickets... Not to mention NO benefits. Been working for them for a very long time and I cant even get dental to get my teeth fixed? Ridiculous... You'd be better off just applying to work for Budweiser or something... Merchandising companies dont care enough about their employees...
Daymon SAS is a good company to work for but the demands and culture depend on your client. Some Clients are very demanding while others just expect the work to be done to expectation with little interaction.
Work from Home, Room to move around in the company network
Lead retail merchandiser (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – January 3, 2019
I love merchandising, I enjoyed merchandising in the grocery industry. We had a core team of 11 but during resets we would have a team of 23 to 25. You get to travel and SAS covers the hotel room. You get paid mileage, and perdium. Most of the hotels have indoor pools Wich is very nice and a hot tub with is an absolute must after resetting grocery.
Company wasnt so bad but management was terrible and no caring
merchandisr (Former Employee) – north carolina- Sanford, Spring lake, etc – January 2, 2019
I was working for SAS in the cary raleigh area. I liked the job ok but the manager that I had was awful. She didnt and doesnt care about her employees. One example is that I had to have emergency surgery on nov 13 and today is Jan 2 and to this day she has yet to ask how i am doing, if im alive or dead. I messaged her yesterday saying that im ready to go back to work and she said i have your stores covered. Shes a no caring person.
Merchandiser (part-time) (Former Employee) – Riverside, California – December 31, 2018
This is the worst company I have ever worked for before!!! Run and run fast...dont stop and apply for a job with this company.. To say there is a lack of communication and absolutely no Professionalism is to say the least....What a JOKE
Retail Project Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 23, 2018
nothing to challenge for anyone that has high degree of pride and drive. Good for people that want to show up and not utilize all their potential. No compensation raises in 4 years and under pay for mileage for use of your personal vehicle.
Elite Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Johnstown, PA – December 17, 2018
If you are single and love to travel, this would be a job for you. Management is not bad, and there is plenty of room to grow in this company. Hardest part of this job is being away for 5-6 days out of the week.
