"They tend to saturate an area with merchandising reps making it difficult to get hours. Although the majority of the work involves 1 person there are times when a job may consist of 2 or more people. With the old supervisor who got transferred in April of 2014, having a team member assigned was never an issue. Ever since there has been a new manager assigned to the territory, team members are rarely if ever assigned. Myself and other reps I've spoken with don't believe she even bothers to look for help.This creates problems in stores as you have to try to get a store employee to help out. I have been personally told by store managers when requesting help on a job that was supposed to have 2 people assigned, "If you're going to use our employees, why do we need Premium?" All you can do is thank them for their help and let them know you will pass on their sentiments."
"The RMM in charge of Illinois and Wisconsin is absolutely the biggest drawback in working for Premium. So many Reps have quit because of her, all with many years experience of working at Premium. The fact the company has kept her on shows what little value they have towards their merchandisers."
"Stay away from this company. Poorly run and management is sub par."
"Decent part time employment, but does not seem to have a lot of room for growth. Furthermore, there can be months off if one is not proactive about finding more jobs to do within the company."
"Good company but only good for a part time job."
"Great company except the schedule is pretty hectic but the managers are nice."
"Hard work - low pay - no future"
