Terrible doesnt describe how bad it is
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London17 November 2017
U are worked like a mule and they are so rude to you in store and at the office. Work gets taken away for a week if u cant fulfil one day out of the week if u have previously agreed to the shift. No progression and the team leaders vary on attitude depending who you are assigned too. Some are so rude u contemplate whether to walk out of the shift or not and dont get me started on the morrisons staff or waitrose senior staff. They talk to you worse than dirt underneath their shoe. I would consider ANY other job rather than this one. Example id rather pick litter for free than work this job. Steer clear u get no training or uniform although ur promised both from day one and never get them. All in all im surprised anyone works for Deeset as a merchandiser unless u are favoured by the office or team leaders u will not enjoy yourself doing this line of work and thats coming from someone who works for them currently.. not for much longer i tell ya.
Pros
Are you kidding what pros? None.
Cons
Long hours and constant days on end away from home. Rubbish pay

Perfect for single mums
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Kent30 October 2017
Everyday something different, Monday to Friday no evenings no weekends.
May be small amount of hours to offer on the advert but after fully paid training you pick up as many hours as you want!

Very draining on you physically and mentally as well as emotionally.
Merchandiser/Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester29 October 2017
Job description is way off the mark. Most shifts are 3 hours and in that time the work load for those hours is the job of 3 people. Do it to the best of your ability and you are put on more. No support if there are health and safety issues and there are many. Climbing ladders to retrieve stock alone. Heavy boxes stored high and on racking. Moving pallets of badly packed stock. No training when it states there is. No accident book. Endless amounts of emails reminding you deadlines are approaching. High staff turnover due to no support from supervisors or area manager.
Too many tasks for one person and no training to carry out some of those tasks.
Computer tasks but systems are out of date, run slow, report them to I.T. but never gets resolved. Tasks rely on WiFi connections but takes an hour to do a 5 minute task as the systems are so dated.
You will be up against it from day one.

Worst job ever
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire18 October 2017
at Deeset we are required to help with A refit of a store, The management is bad and everybody is out for themselves. The people in the office lie all of the time to cover their own backs. The hardest part of the job is the people you have to deal with
Pros
get to travel round the country
Cons
long hours, loss of social life

flexible
Area Manager (Current Employee) –  uk28 September 2017
Very flexible especially if you need to work around childcare. Merchandisers can work anything between 8 and 35 hours week. New system allocates your work 4 weeks in advance so you can plan your work so that you get a good work/life balance

It's a job.
Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Nation16 July 2017
Being away from home can be a challenge to some, but it's a good way to meet new people. Working with new faces at different sites was a good experience for me, but we never had a point of contact if we had any issues.
Pros
Free Hotel Stays and Travel Expenses.
Cons
Unsociable.

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Everywhere1 July 2017
Overall a good company to work for but work can e intermittent and sometimes there is no work at all. However, when the season is busy they will keep sending you from one place to anothrt and sometimes forget you need a day off.

Worst Management ever
Metchandiser (Former Employee) –  Aberdeenshire25 June 2017
This company has changed so much over the last few years it use to be one of the best now it is the worst and has a very bad reputation especially management. There is no confidentiality with senior staff members. There are now 2 sides to the company Morrisons workers who have to work set times and weekends and night shifts etc for no extra pay and Asda workers who work flexible times and if they have to work weekends etc get double pay. There is no support from management on Morrisons side while the Asda side have a very critical Manager and some workers are expected to use their own phones etc with no compensation. Also in certain areas they enrice people with a higher rate of pay than staff that are hard working and been with the company for years as they find it very hard to recruit . They also expect so much work in the hours given. I would recommend everyone give them a wide berth.
Pros
None
Cons
Pay, SaleTimes, Poor Management

Worst work I ever had
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Kent25 June 2017
I work in Nutmeg since last december and still haven't got uniform t-shirt. My shifts are changing every week. Payment is rubbish . Amount of work is huge, there are not even enough staff in the shop and they wont hire more people to make bigger profit . Disgusting attitude from regional management . Treat you like you are nothing ! Worked in other companies, but this one- just NO !!
Pros
great supervisor in my store
Cons
huge amount of work for rubbish payment

Struggling to stay at Deeset
Fork Lift Truck Driver/Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Fenton, Staffordshire11 April 2017
There are a lot of different things to do at deeset but I have no idea what I am suppose to be doing from day to day. I am expected to do my own job as well as everyone else's to. The contract and hours keep changing and we get treated unfairly.

Approach With Caution
Merchandising (Former Employee) –  South East England22 March 2017
Hours are agreed between the stores and Deeset so you may well be asked to be in store at set times on set days depending which supermarket you work in - make sure that is made clear to you and agreed when you join and that it suits your circumstances. I was told 'flexible' working but then told to work set times on set days on a rota basis.Not so helpful when you have a family and require some flexibility from time to time. The only real benefit you get with merchandising jobs is flexible working and if that isn't there, whats the point? Make sure you are employed via a friend or existing employee and not through head office recruitment or you will not be treated fairly in the work place.Head office have one idea what they need and that does not always agree with that the supervisors and stores want. The hours you get will probably have to fit in around existing staff too. You will need to use your own personal email account and phone for work use and to do your job and you will not be compensated. Some merchandisers get company iPads but that seems to be allocated on a random basis. You may be asked to travel to other stores but the milage payable rate is well below HMRC recommended amount. Communication, training and management within the company is very poor. There are no personal objectives set or performance reviews. You are there just to put stock on the shop floor and thats it. No progression opportunities and you don't feel valued or motivated, just a number to DeeSet and not a person. You have to field EVERYTHING through your supervisor and you are discouraged form  more... communicating with any area within the business. Not good if you ever have any issues regarding your pay or anything work related or confidential. Head Office have NO idea what is going on in the field or they just choose to turn a blind eye, I'm not sure which is worse but they seem to be very happy in their own little bubble up in Stoke-on-Trent! It has the potential to be a great little part time job but such a shame it is so poorly implemented and managed.  less
Pros
Great if you are customer focused and like meeting people
Cons
Fixed shifts, poor management, pay and benefits

Not great
Retail Merchandising Assistant (Former Employee) –  reading, UK19 March 2017
Not a great place to work for, abusive staff members. Callers don't know whether you have finished a job or not, try to send you on another one where no supervisors are there to let you know what the job includes

Good Company Ethics, Just Poor Putting Them Into Practise.
Retail Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Staffordshire8 February 2017
Deeset is an excellent company to work for if you have no commitments, doing the job purely to get out of the house or needing to be flexible around school hours. for the above, they are an excellent company. However, if you have bills to pay, responsibilities and need the hours, unfortunately they are not so good. There is no job security. I was promised that I would be looked after, after the person who returned to work after health issues I was left with very few hours a week.
Pros
Flexibility around families.
Cons
not enough job security.

Terrible management
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Nationwide7 February 2017
Earning potential is there if you do not mind ignorant and arrogant staff in the office who treat you like a piece of meat... chopping and changing your work constantly. Who also threaten you with taking a whole weeks work off you if you cannot fulfil a certain day. As for progression??? There is none unless you are 'one of the boys' All in all it was a year of my life that has been entirely wasted!!!
Pros
Meet new people
Cons
