Good place to work with opportunity to travel
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Erlanger, KY – 15 November 2017
Apollo offers opportunities to travel for varied projects lasting from 1 to 6 weeks. Projects range from new store sets to remodels to department resets., I love the variety! Work hours can range from a one day, 8 hour job to 10+ hour days for multiple weeks. Crews/teams are not defined so you usually don't know who you will be working with or their skill level, unless you have worked with them in the past. Nights and weekend work is common. Inconsistent work means an irregular income, which is normal for most merchandising companies. The downside of this seems to be that some workers try to "Milk the clock" by working slowly, inefficiently and inaccurately, which is frustrating. Team Leads do not have the authority to exit a worker from a project, so slow, poor work must be tolerated. Finally, one never knows when or where they will be scheduled next, and must be ready to travel at a phone call. If you like the unpredictable, don't need a "regular" income and can travel and stay with people you've never met, this is the place for you!
Project variety, travel, overtime opportunity
Inconsistent work, unprofessional Team Leads, lack of communication from Schedulers and Management
