Retail Media Merchandiser (Current Employee), McAllen, TX – December 29, 2013
Pros: great environment
Cons: inconsistent hours
I had a great time working here. This job had me working at best buys in mcallen, but i also ended up having to travel to laredo and corpus christi to help out projects there. I was given alot of responsibilities even though i was just a part timer. The drawbacks to this job were the inconsistent hours.
It was very productive and fun reading different kind of books
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Atlanta Georgia U.S – March 28, 2013
Pros: free books
Cons: long hours
I worked 10 hours per day, four days a week. I had a good relationship with my co-workers, we respect each other and worked together as a team. At this job, I learn more about reading books, DVD, and CD's code; make sure it's the right products for the order. the most enjoyable part of the job was walking. I was on my feet most of the time.
Retail Media Merchandiser (Former Employee), North Las Vegas, NV – March 4, 2014
Anderson Merchandising was a contracted merchandising company, that set up displays and set plano-grams for selected promotions within a store. The projects required a lot of work but not very much time to complete many of the tasks that were to be done for the week. It was usually a 4 hour time frame to do complete tasks that could take up to 8 hours – more... to complete. The management was not very great, as the management recognized all of my little mistakes and not on what I was doing well. Everybody makes mistakes but no need to point out all negatives as that will make an employee feel less confident with their work and causes them to produce low quality work. I felt way over worked and underpaid working with this company. I did not receive much recognition for any work that I did while working with this company. – less
Territory Sales Lead (Current Employee), Amarillo, TX – March 2, 2014
Pros: trust to work alone
Cons: better pay
a typical day is full of surprise. we learn to adapt to our surroundings everyday. I see my co-workers once a year. I'm in the process of applying to management. the hardest part used to be the time to complete the projects. the freedom to work alone is also great.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Redding, CA – February 22, 2014
I gained the knowledge of navigating on the companies computer to print out shelf labels and plan-o-grams. I also learned to use a CR-7 hand held computer/digital camera and Telzon with portable printer. You have to work independently and quickly in the early morning hours from 5 AM to 9 AM. The scope of work included building displays and being able – more... to read hard to understand directions, set shelves to schematics in a fast timely manner, print shelf labels and schematics, computer time reporting, use the CR-7 hand held computer to answer questionnaires and take pictures with the built in digital camera and use it as a phone to call supervisors or listen in on conference calls. – less
Great company to work at! I've learned a lot in a short time. I want to much up the corporate; however, it will take time. The hours can vary but a great position for someone in school or looking for a part-time gig.
Field Training Specialist-OR, WA, ID & MT (Current Employee), Portland, OR – February 17, 2014
Every day manage for results, is one of Anderson's 10 rules. Everyday is a different, mind stimulating day full of tasks. I enjoy taking new hires and managing their training. Day one, they come in full of desire to learn, the challenge is to take the enthusiasm and help them to have that every day. Positive work environment is key to managing a team – more... and being productive and Anderson Merchandisers has many ways to help develop all the skills and opportunities in a positive way. – less
Regional Lead (Former Employee), North of Seattle – February 12, 2014
Pros: long lunches
Cons: everything. just seriously everything.
The job was fine I worked in a few stores but the people are the worst. I worked with only one non-negative lady, the rest were unnecessarily coarse and rude. It was so bad I quit and ran because they were so negative; the training abhorrent. I kept asking for more help and they told me it was my fault I didn't understand. There is a reason there is – more... a high turnover rate at this place. – less
Retail Merchandiser (Current Employee), Kennewick, WA – January 16, 2014
From the interview to job activity, I've been very pleased with the way things are done by Anderson Merchandisers. I have the tools and information easily at hand to complete my tasks, and the help desk is always quick and pleasant to work with when problems arise.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Chicago – January 15, 2014
Pros: dressing like a penguin
Cons: everything you could imagine
The Management has no interest in its people or telling them the truth about the work schedule, extra tasks or the lack of cooperation you will receive from the customer. The tools needed to do the job are not working half the time and if you complain they tell you to go with the flow but still expect you to get the job done. As far as trust is concerned, – more... there is none. You will take pictures of everything you do then take more pictures just to be sure. Schedules change daily and they expect you to be available. Split shifts are common during the holidays so don't plan any time with your family. Raises never are discussed so don't expect one. They want you to check your messages 3 times daily along with your email and any messages sent on the cn50 that they force you to use. The help desk is useless and you'll waste valuable time in the effort. You're treated with disrespect by both Anderson as well as the customer who ignores you on a daily basis and yet demands your loyalty. If you enjoy abuse each and every day, this is the company for you! – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NY – January 14, 2014
Cons: short breaks
I loved working there because I like working with children. I mostly restocked the floor and the backrooms. This job taught me how to maintain an neat area in a fast pace . Also it was a very busy store. It the only American Girl Place in New York. My manger was good she was also helpful when I first started. The co workers were cool we all worked as – more... a team. I needed some help with lifting heavy boxes filled with dolls but my co worker helped me that was kind of the hardest part was restocking. I enjoyed seeing the little girls happy when they receive they look alike American Doll. – less
