Simple and Productive Job
Merchandiser (Former Employee), EverywhereJuly 28, 2014
Pros: good company
Cons: lots of driving
Would have a route of stores and go in weekly to do projects that were given. No a hard job once you are trained, you work by yourself but have bosses and others who do the same as you. Hardest part would be to making sure everything is done on time, but I enjoy meeting new people while working in the store for example managers, workers or just shoppers.

Route Sales/Service Supervisor (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 30, 2014
Pros: driving a company vehicle

Merchandiser (Current Employee), Arlington, TXJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: monday thru friday only
Cons: limited amount of work hours
You have to be very active and meet the customer's expectations everyday. Build a relationship to demonstrate job knowledge.
The hardest part is that you are given a certain amount of time to work your stores and sometimes that's difficult to comply. The most enjoyable is that you work flexible hours.

The News Group and how they treat their merchandisers
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Granada Hills, CAJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: wish i could say something positive, but i would be lying
Cons: management very laxed does not follow up on problems in stores, simply ignores the issues.
When hired they started at a certain salary, and instead of giving
you the incentive of a raise and appreciation of the work, they
reduced all merchandisers salaries by a certain percentage.
This is just a part time job for me as I am retired, but I have owned
my own business and even when times were bad I never lowered
an employee's pay.
