What does a Merchandiser do?
Retail Merchandising Services is a merchandising company that works exclusively
in Target stores. We are hired by Target directly, and by vendors that sell products
in Target Stores, to complete merchandising projects in Target stores all over the
country. You are assigned a store near your home and you have responsibility for
all merchandising projects scheduled to be completed in your store.
General duties include stocking product, setting product to planogram, keeping the
product area clean and organized and pulling damaged product off the salesfloor.
We do extensive work in the Sunglass and Electronics Departments but also enjoy
the variety provided by completing other project work in all areas of the Target
stores. Project work varies but typically includes putting stickers on products,
auditing planograms, finding defective items, and removing damaged products.
What days & hours will I work?
Projects in your assigned store must be completed during the week they are scheduled.
With very few exceptions, you control the dates and times
that you complete the projects assigned to you (within the scheduled week). Our
reps love the flexibility of weekly scheduling. And, since all work is done in your
assigned Target store you don’t need to drive all over town to get to multiple retailers.
All your work is done in one location.
What does it take to be a Retail Merchandising Services Merchandiser?
- Merchandisers must be organized, motivated, self starters who can work independently
and be counted on to get their work done on time, every time in the best possible
- Retail Merchandising Services has a great relationship with our clients, so it is
important that each of our merchandisers have outstanding customer service skills.
Merchandisers must be able to communicate effectively with employees at Target to
get the job done.
- Sometimes parts of the merchandising job can be physical. This position requires
lifting up to 15 lbs on a regular basis, standing for up to 5 hours at a time, frequently
reaching above and below the shoulders, kneeling, bending, and crouching. The position
also requires lifting up to 25 pounds on a periodic basis (once a month). Our merchandisers
work with a lot of small tags and numbers, so it is essential that they can see
small items, numbers and codes.
