Pros: if you need afternoons\nights free
Cons: you are a stocker
Your work day starts between 5-7 am., ends by 1-2 pm, most of the time. starting pay is $14 hr, higher than most others. A district can easily earn over $1 million a month, but not you. As a merchandiser, you are just a shelf stocker for various grocery stores, restocking product. Just about all your movements\travel\time, is recorded by their tracking system and cell phone. You need to handle at least 35 cases an hour to stay out of trouble, many loads you get will have between 70-120 cases, if you take longer, you are questioned. You have to work fast to move product to aisles, unpack cases, stock shelves, set up displays, take down displays and there is no room for being unfriendly or rude to store personnel. There are only a few FT positions in each district, most are PT averaging 10-25 hrs. It can be a hectic job because the manager will only give you so many hours to do a store before moving onto the next one. Most have a route of 2-5 stores. As a team member, you are very expendable as an employee.
