Hi There,

I actually work for this company and it is a FANTASTIC job for a Mum. I do about 15 hrs per week and I pretty much fit that in around the kids school things. So I still have plenty of time to help out in the classroom, go to assemblies etc and am always there for pick up time biggrin.gif

The work can be a little physically tiring as you are on your feet in the stores the whole time. And I guess you have to have enough confidence to tackle the work and approach people as you are pretty much out there on your own.

The pay is not super ... but the job is really flexible so I never need to fork out for OSHcare etc  I have found it a great confidence boost and an excellent re-entry to work.

Good Lck,

thanks for that - interesting stuff - I have emailed them but I havent had any response from this company sad.gif ...  

Angcha: Could you tell me what you actually do in the store - is it making sure the product is on the shelf or is it those people that cook samples and hand it out to customers - If you know what I mean  mellow.gif

Oh no ... no cooking required  Tounge1.gif  Tounge1.gif

You work in stores like Kmart, Target, Myer & Big W. Mostly it is fill and tidy as well as putting up new promotional material and doing stock reporting.  Brands that you may represent include Universal Pictures, Bonne Bell, Face of Australia, Activision and Willow. The work is highly varied, which I really enjoy!

How long ago did you email them? It was weeks between when I applied for my job and when I heard from them. I think the recruiting is pretty much a continual process. It may also depend on whether they have a territory available near you.

sounds like a fun job - I think I emailed them about 2wks ago - I am not in any hurry though - just really wanted to find out how FLEXiBLE they are with hours ...

I appreciate your posts though - I was thinking this was going to be a dodgy job - but it sounds pretty legit !!!

Thanks for your help !

Just a quick question. Do they provide which stores for you to go to or are you expected to 'drum up' the business yourself?

#9 Angcha

Posted 18 January 2007 - 07:33 AM

Nope, not dodgy at all! No selling or anything involved. All the work is delivered to your house ... you just follow the instructions which we be along the lines of "Universal call at Kmart XYZ. Locate Universal module, display stock to planogram. Blah blah blah". You will be allocated a certain amount of time to complete the call, which is usually very generous.  Then you jst fill in the call form on line and hey presto at the end of each month you get paid!

Go for it!

I have done merchandising work before too (it is great)

They do prefer you to live in the vicinity of your stores (I think). I live about 10 mins from my area and all my stores are in the 1 shopping centre  biggrin.gif

$18.25/hour is the going rate.

Can you do it afterhours (e.g. nights), as long as the stores are open?

#13 MattsMum

Posted 18 January 2007 - 09:38 AM

Alright have emailed them with my resume. Thanks for the information.

#14 Angcha

Posted 18 January 2007 - 09:42 AM

Work cannot be done after hours or on weekends.

#15 white2sugars

OH Angcha - your last post puts me out of the running - that is exactly what I wanted After Hours and Weekends sad.gif

Thanks for all your input on this !!!

Silly question - is it the type of work that you could do with a toddler in a stroller???

#20 Angcha

Posted 23 January 2007 - 04:25 PM

Definitely NOT with a toddler in a stroller! You will be out for hours at a time and it would also be against the Health & Safety policies of the stores you work in.

I just applied, fingers crossed original.gif

#22 *Goobs*

Posted 23 January 2007 - 08:11 PM

Sounds very interesting original.gif but i do have a question

Are you required to deliever the items to the shops from your house or are they delievered to the shops and you just get them from out the back dock ? and then set them up.

Also do you need to keep going back and refilling ?

Hi, just letting you know that one of my relies does this work.

She started off doing a couple of days a week, and from word of mouth and enjoying the work, she is now doing 4 days a week.

Most of the stock is at the store.  But some of the stuff for displays, or special things that need to be attached to existing stock in the store are sent to your house.

Depending on the store that you are working in and what they have asked you to do there may be some refilling involved.

K, that's fantastic darling!  biggrin.gif
Congratulations (you don't need good luck) - you'll be in like Flynn.

Let me know how it pans out would you? The Princessa starts school next year and I may not be able to do the 9-5 grind anymore.
