Decent Pay, Room For Improvement
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 14, 2016
I worked as a merchandiser for a couple of months at the seemingly chronically understaffed L.A. branch. That should be your first red flag. Why do people keep leaving? For me, it was ineptitude from HR and Sales members. Example: I didn't get my mileage reimbursement for May until July.
Another reason I left was rather than having a couple of set routes/stores, I was sent on five different routes. The Mid-Wilshire route is the worst, not only because of the traffic but the sales manager for that route did a terrible job in communicating. I met the sales managers on all the other routes, but not that one.
Training was supposed to be two weeks but was ultimately a total of five work days as I was pulled out and sent to merch stores solo.
It's a decent job with good pay, but the wear and tear on your car, dealing with the internal staff, etc. made it not worth my time.
Very physical work, wear and tear on your car, disorganized HR
