This is not an at-home position, but many RRRebels like the flexibility and autonomy that merchandiser jobs offer and they’ve asked us to post more of them.
Hallmark continues to recruit p/t Merchandisers. With these positions you’ll probably do your paperwork and reporting at home, and travel to local stores to stock cards and perform other duties.
Many people appreciate the balance and flexibility of being able to get “out of the house” for a little while and be around other adults, without having to go “all in” with a traditional [email protected] job. Pay is not listed on the Hallmark site, though Glassdoor reviews indicate it’s around $11/hr. range.
Here’s what Hallmark has to say about these roles:
“This is your opportunity to represent the world’s best-known greeting card brand and develop retailer relationships in your community. Hallmark provides paid training, paid travel time and mileage reimbursement between stores and access to a variety of corporate discounts.
There are three major components of this PART-TIME position:
Day to Day Service:
Product merchandising: You will handle all aspects of product merchandising within your assigned stores. You will use a Hallmark-issued, hand-held mobile device to replenish, straighten and track inventory of Hallmark products. This could include products placed inside the Hallmark department or within other areas of the store.
Store employee and customer interaction: You must interact in a professional manner with store employees, store management and customers while in the store.
Schedule: Your Territory Supervisor will clarify your specific schedule. Work is typically scheduled Monday through Friday during the day and hours will increase during holiday periods.
Holiday Support: Hallmark’s business is season driven. Your scheduled days and hours will increase the week before and after the following holidays – Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
You may be required to work on the actual holiday for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
Department Remodels and Resets: Occasionally, you may be required to be a part of an installation team and work on activities to include, but not limited to, building Hallmark fixtures, moving card departments, installing fixtures and product and remodeling card departments.
Typically you will receive at least a 2-week notice for remodel/reset work.
This is a physically demanding job that requires a high level of energy and a sense of urgency. You will be working on the selling floor as well as in back stockrooms. You must be able to consistently push, pull, lift, and carry cartons, merchandise and display fixtures up to 30 pounds throughout the work day and up to 50 pounds on occasion. You will also be required to stoop, squat, walk, and stand throughout your work day, and you may be required to climb stairs and step ladders.
