Merchandiser Job Description
There is really no such thing as a 'typical' day for a merchandiser with Driveline Retail.

Typical in-store assignments can be anything from simple placement of advertising or signage to a detailed, multi-hour team reset of an entire product category.
Driveline Retail Interview Questions
My initial interview was conducted via email. The interviewer focused on my level of retail and merchandising experience. There were also some theoretical questions about how I would handle certain in-store situations. A few days after the e-mail interview I received a follow-up phone call from the District Manager. We spoke a bit more in depth about the job requirements, then I was informed at the end of the call that I was being offered a position.
Salary and Benefits
Salary - Driveline Retail, Merchandiser is $8/Hourly.
Driveline Retail offers a 401k plan with a possible company match to all of their employees.
Working conditions are generally good, but you must be flexible and able to quickly adapt to new situations.
