Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS31 January 2018
It can be very physical ( Standing on a ladder and handling large cases of canned goods and placing on top shelves of grocery store). It should not be a minimum wage job but it is. Even if you work there 5 years, you will still make the same. You can request a raise but the procedure is long and in the end, you might get .25 cent raise. There are better companies around to apply to. Blaze is desperate and will hire just about anyone.

productive and fun work place
Merchandising (Former Employee) –  Orangeville, ON21 July 2015
typical day at work is good, I learning how to be more open with people, the hardest part of the job would be when your doing a reline when the store is open and the store is crowded, trying to stay out of customers way, the most enjoyable part of the job is how friendly the staff at the stores are and how friendly most of the customers are.
Pros
meeting new people, working in new places
Cons
traveling

Absolutely the crappiest company to work for
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  windsor, On17 June 2015
THE recruiter makes it sound like a cool and fun place to work and is friendly, but that's where it ENDS.

The initial paperwork is costly and over-whelming---they expect YOU to pay $ 60 for a police clearance and they KEEP the record---you have to pay to have it delivered and ONLY hire you after they receive that clearance. Getting reimbursed for the $60 bucks-takes several emails, phone calls, and about 8-12 weeks.

The MOUNTAIN of paperwork---(no joke, about 30-45 pages) you have to fill out, all prior to getting hired is RIDICULOUS !.

The wage is almost MINIMUM.

When you get to your assignment, your are treated like a unwanted new hire trying to steal other employees hours, unfriendly, cold, curt.

The palnograms are tiny print, sometimes blurred, incorrectly copied, BLACK & WHITE sheets of paper that the picture is basically useless. Which means you are forced to use the numerical, sequential loooong list to allocate your product.

You must provide your own tools if you want the job done correctly.

They often give conflicting orders, not professional as far as being organized, having simple items such as signs, tape, etc.

You must provide your own uniform---shirt, shoes & pants---must be solid black.


HOURS ARE few and far between, you could complete your store in like 2 hours.

The computer entries are complex, and expense reporting is EVEN MORE COMPLEX and can take up to 8-12 weeks to receive any reimbursement.

People don't show, call in sick and quit on a regular basis.

one of the worst merchandising companies out there
merchandiser (Former Employee) –  toronto21 August 2014
working for blaze is a joke. they will give you hours some weeks and then you might go 2 or 3 weeks with no hours at all. pay is the lowest in the merchandising industry. head office HR does not return calls when they say they would (multiple occasions) nor do they hire fairly. no wonder they post "new" jobs regularly for the same projects, look and see for yourself. i would avoid this employer at all costs and work for a different company.
