Merchandiser (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 6, 2014
Pros: getting the latest celeb gossip
Cons: few hours
When on the job, you clean up shelves, replace old stock with new, and making sure the costumer gets help while you are in the store. This job requires organizational skills, to be able to clean up, and follow plans. Management was exceptional, always able to answer questions, and help if there is a lot of stock to put out. The hardest part of the job was cleaning up after costumers, because lets be honest they are messy.

TRUCKDRIVER (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: good benefits, good pay, good vacation time allowance
Cons: varied hours, driving in winter weather, distance to work
I had to drive an hour to get to work. Starting times varied from 3:30 am to 7 am. I loaded my truck. Drove truck in middle and upper lower Michigan to make deliveries to many businesses. When were deliveries completed I came back and unloaded items returned by businesses and did paper work invoices downloading information off the hand held scanner. I learned how to use the hand held scanner and driving patterns to many locations. I got along well with management and my co-workers. Management always made it easy for me to adjust my vacation time so I could visit relatives out of state and attend special family events. This meant a lot to me.The hardest part of the job was the distance I had to drive to get to work. Also hard to have a good sleep pattern with the different starting times. As gas prices went up it cost a lot to get to work and back home. I enjoyed working in the book and magazine business. My Dad had worked in that business and eventually owned Young News so I was brought up at a very young age to learn about that trade.

Fork Lift Driver (Current Employee), Atlanta, GANovember 3, 2014
Pros: 45 minute lunch breaks
Cons: short breaks don't really have time to eat your breakfast.
Off loading Trucks breaking them down, counting the product correctly making sure it's what's on the bill of lading. keeping the area clean. I learned the proper way of driving a Fork Lift correctly. My co workers are fun to work with and we work together really good. The hardest part to me is sometimes having to deal with a lot of the Truck driver's bad attitudes. The most enjoyable part of my job break time and I have a chance to communicate with co workers and my super visor.

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.
