Pros: staying active, keeps you busy, potlucks, bbq's.
Cons: spend atleast half the shift alone lifting large, heavy product.
In a typical day as a Merchandiser I would be responsible for building new and clearance product, pricing it appropriately according to cost, cleaning off, and displaying it in an appealing way.
As well I would do counts on product to ensure inventory safety and report any discrepancies found. Customer service factors in with assisting with carry-outs – more... of product as well as general pick-up of customer merchandise. Always providing quick, efficient, and friendly service to every customer I encountered.
In the job I learned how to build various case goods being shelving units, sofas, bedroom pieces, etc. My co-workers and management always made a point in helping me when they could, making it easier when I was on my own during a shift, which was definately the most difficult part of the job.
I enjoyed that my job made me a more active person as I was always busy, I enjoy the good work-out my job supplies me, that's why I look forward to doing my job every week. – less
