Do you have school-aged children? Would you like to work around 20 hours per week and be allowed to make your own schedule? Are you looking for an easy job with little to no stress? If the answer is yes, I have an ideal job for you as a part-time merchandiser for Hallmark.
Hallmark has several available positions as a retail merchandiser in cities and towns all across the US. Here is what you need to know about this line of work and how you can apply online.
What is a retail merchandiser?
A retail merchandiser for Hallmark is a person that is responsible for maintaining the shelves in the store for a particular company. It is up to the retail merchandiser to make the display shelves look presentable, neat, up-to-date, and fully stocked.
What does the job involve?
It will involve you traveling to a local department store or grocery store to stock and organize the greeting cards for Hallmark. You may be required to meet with the employees of the store to gather your merchandise, which will be located in the back of the store. You will have to get the boxes, unpack them and stock them on the shelves.
You will also be responsible for stocking the party ware, bags, and other items that will be displayed along with the cards. This will involve some minor lifting and bending to get the boxes to the display shelf as well as some reaching to place the cards on the shelf but it is not too strenuous.
At times you may be required to take away discontinued cards but your main job will be to refill the cards and make the display shelves inviting to help the customer have an enjoyable shopping experience when looking for that special card.
What hours will I work?
This is a part-time job so you will work no more than 20 hours per week unless it is during their busy or peak season and they need you to work more. You can expect to work somewhere between 3 to 20 hours per week depending upon your schedule and availability.
What stores will I be working at?
It will vary but you can expect to work and stock greeting cards in any store that would carry their product. Some of the stores may include but are not limited to Walgreens, Walmart, Kroger, Barnes & Noble, The Dollar Store, or any store that has a section that displays Hallmark Greeting Cards.
Are there any requirements?
- Have reliable transportation
- Have a high school diploma or GED
- Be willing to work a flexible schedule including some weekends
- Operate a hand-held technology device to scan cards
- Have Internet access with email access (WiFi is allowed)
- You will need to be at least 18 years of age
How much does this job pay?
You can expect to earn somewhere around $8 to $10 an hour. In addition to this hourly rate, Hallmark will provide you with generous mileage reimbursement for your travel between multiple stores.
Will this job work around my schedule?
Yes. That is why I decided to do a review on the merchandiser jobs for Hallmark because you can work a couple of days a week for a few short hours on whatever days you pick and be home when your kids get out of school. You can make up your own schedule to adjust to your individual needs and circumstances which makes this an ideal job for stay-at-home moms.
