Great First Season with CMS

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have enjoyed my time with CMS as I wanted something that wasn't 9-5 and would allow me to work independently. You must be someone who is self-motivated and a self-starter to do this role well I feel, as you have to relay information back to your manger from the store and make decisions about how to divide your time throughout your shift and merchandise appropriately. The hours do vary each week (between 15 for low delivery periods, to 30 at the peak of 2-3 shipments/week). The pay could be a dollar or two higher for all of the responsibility and the hard work of offloading so much product independently, but overall it isn't too bad if you like working hands-on and getting to be outside (you work inside with tropical plants and in the outdoor garden centre with perennials). Also, you get to know the store staff quite well and it makes doing your job easier when you need assistance with things like printing prices or making decisions about product placement, etc.It's good if you have a decorating background or have good spatial ability and are strong, since you must move quite a lot of trays of plants and trees/shrubs in order to create a visually appealing and shoppable space.

Thank you for your review. At Complete Merchandising Solutions we strive to give employees the ability to work independently, and have a schedule that allows for work-life balance. As plants are seasonal, the amount of work can vary from week to week, which means the hours may fluctuate. We hope you enjoy your time working with us! Thank you, CMS Human Resources 

Flexible Schedule

Traveled to different retailers to merchandise and make purchase orders fro new inventory. Busy during Christmas. Get compensated for gas/mileage but not much.
