Posted 4 weeks ago

Full-Time Merchandisers are responsible for merchandising Frito-Lay's complete line of quality products in local stores. As a Merchandiser, you will drive your personal vehicle to a variety of store locations, retrieving Frito-Lay products from the backs of stores, and ensuring that our products are both fresh and attractive to our customers. The Merchandiser work schedule is based on customer requirements. This includes weekend and holiday work in all weather conditions.

Some of the more frequent tasks you would perform include:

  • Driving to assigned locations in your personal vehicle (we'll provide mileage reimbursement while you're on the clock)

  • Check-in and out with manager on duty

  • Merchandising cases from the back room to the sales floor, filling display units or shelves with products such as Doritos, Classic Lays, Tostitos, Smartfood Popcorn, etc.

  • Rotating products and removing defective and out-of-date products

  • Tidying up shelves and displays, knocking down boxes and disposing of any waste

  • Assist in the assembling and disassembling of promotional materials such as signs, banners, and cardboard displays

It's a physical job. We transform store aisles, end caps, and displays into works of art, from the lowest shelf to the highest shelf. This position requires that you be able to lift 15 to 40 pounds, climb, push, pull, bend, stand, stoop, and kneel for extended periods of time with, or without, a reasonable accommodation.

Our diverse team strives for perfection and you should feel comfortable operating under minimal supervision. We are proud to set industry standards in terms of pay and benefits. In addition to our generous starting wage found at the top of this listing, you will also enjoy unbeatable benefits including, but not limited to:

  • Health care benefits (including dental and vision)

  • Education advising and tuition reimbursement

  • Gas mileage reimbursement

Merchandisers who come to work with us have a wide variety of experience. In order to be considered for this position, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older

  • Have a valid driver's license with proof of insurance

  • Be able to climb, push, pull, bend, stoop, and kneel for extended periods with or without reasonable accommodation

  • Be able to lift up to 40 lbs. with or without reasonable accommodation (example: a microwave)

This position also requires a review of your driving history.

People often ask what characteristics will make them successful in this position. Here is an idea of what our managers are looking for:

  • Strong Work Ethic: you are punctual and reliable in terms of attendance, you accurately report your time using your company-issued device and you are comfortable working without a manager monitoring your day-to-day activities

  • Flexibility: you are able to adapt to changing situations, new tasks and priorities as changes occur; you will encounter challenges and resolve them by yourself

  • Customer Focus: when you are in the stores with our customers, you help them find what they need and deliver service that exceed their expectations

  • Attention to Detail: our Merchandisers are meticulous when it comes to checking dates on chips, tidying shelves, and arranging products

  • Communication: you will be working closely with other Frito-Lay team members and it's important to communicate regularly; good communication also includes checking in and out with the store manager

  • Positive Attitude: you will be part of a sales team that relies on one another to build professional relationships and attend to customer needs while following Frito-Lay and store procedures, work rules and safety policies
