Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Scotland – 12 February 2018
Found the job very physically demanding as there is a lot of heavy lifting involved. The delivery is quite large and far too much work for one person the stock comes into store in large black boxes and also cardboard boxes these are full of stock and very heavy for a woman to lift. The stock must all be processed and this can also be very time consuming. On top of the delivery you have Dee surveys to do on a daily basis and make up to fill also clip strips to do as well as all other daily work involved within a busy department again far too much work for one person to do. My team seemed nice but I never really got a chance to meet them properly as you always work alone most of the time this also means you get very little support if things go wrong. Over all I would advise stay well clear unless you like to work really hard for low pay.
Lovely clothing comes in weekly and you get to see all the new ranges
Very physically demanding job. Work load very high for one person to complete

nutmeg clothing (Former Employee) – nationwide – 18 January 2018
Working on the clothing department in morrisons and other merchandising activities. Gift cards, clipstrips, cosmetics all part of the job now. Used to be great but my how the company has changed. Real lack of support from overstretched area managers. My area manager was great but there is only so much they can do. You raise issues at a senior level and they just ignore you. Working in morrisons is a challenge in itself you get badly treated instore and Deeset don't back you up.
Flexibility isn't what is used to be. Lack of Communication is a real issue. If you suck up then you will go far, they don't want to hear about anything negative because that would mean facing upto the problems. High staff turnover due to lack of training. You get promised the earth when starting but reality soon sets in. Uniform is always out of stock. Stationary is non existence.
Store Development/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire – 3 January 2018
This was a job I really enjoyed, I enjoy travelling and with this job you do plenty of it!! The work got repetitive, but you were never short of it. If an opportunity arose again for to go for a job within this company, I would not hesitate to go back to them!!
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire – 11 December 2017
This could be a really good job depending on branch you're based in and management/training provision. Downside - hours/shift constantly changing and wages not always as they should be. Instruction on same job can change on a daily basis leaving staff confused.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 17 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.
Are you kidding what pros? None.
Long hours and constant days on end away from home. Rubbish pay
Very draining on you physically and mentally as well as emotionally.
Merchandiser/Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 29 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.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire – 18 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
Area Manager (Current Employee) – uk – 28 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
Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Nation – 16 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.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Everywhere – 1 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.
