I only recommend if you want a temporary job until you find something better.
Merchandiser and Trainer (Current Employee) – Brunswick, OH – October 5, 2018
I don't hate the work itself, I actually enjoy it.
That being said, the company does NOT give regular pay raises to their merchandiser employees. I can not speak for management on that.
Also our employees were banned from sitting in the stores cafe for our lunch breaks, even if we are buying our food from the store and are not on the clock!
A typical day is getting a planogram, staying organized throughout the process while pulling discontinued and NOP items, resetting products, replacing price tags, processing discontinued and Not-on-plan products.
Our team is relaxed but we all work together to get what needs done in a timely manner.
Personally the hardest part of the job is the physical part, due to past injury.
For me the best part of the job is the hours i work. 7am-2:30pm. Mon-Thurs.
Banning us from eating our lunches in store. No pay raises. No paid holidays, sick days, PTO. The company does not work from Thanksgiving through the first week of January.
