Welcome to ActionLink's Merchandising Application Page. To help you decide if working for ActionLink is right for you, we have provided some detailed information about what it takes to be a great merchandiser for ActionLink. What does an ActionLink Merchandiser do? ActionLink is a retail services organization that provides merchandising execution in retail locations throughout the country and we work with the latest consumer electronics. We are hired by retailers and by product manufacturers to complete merchandising projects all over the country. If selected, you would be assigned a territory using a radius from your home base and would have responsibility for all merchandising projects scheduled to be completed in those stores. Our company specializes in consumer electronics. This means that ActionLink Merchandisers work with the latest technologies which can include: computers/laptops, tablets, mobile devices, TV and home theater, audio equipment, appliances and more. General duties include but not limited to: * Ensuring product is stocked and visibly appealing * Setting product to planogram * Auditing displays and stock according to planogram * Install interactive displays for consumer electronics * Troubleshoot displays and display components * Other merchandising duties as assigned What days & hours will I work? Projects in the assigned territory must be completed during the week they are scheduled. Typically, our merchandisers receive about 10 - 15hours of work each week. With very few exceptions, you control the dates and times that you complete the projects assigned to you between Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Our merchandising reps enjoy our flexibility in scheduling. What does it take to be an ActionLink Merchandiser? Merchandisers must be organized, motivated, self-starters who can work independently and be counted on to get their work done on time, every time in the best possible way. ActionLink has a great relationship with our clients, so it is important that each of our merchandisers have outstanding customer service skills. Merchandisers must be able to communicate effectively with employees in their stores to get the job done. Sometimes parts of the merchandising job can be physical.

Occasional use of ladders may be required. Our merchandisers work quickly and efficiently using their smart devices and personal computers to complete all project reporting, so having a smart device that uses an iOS or Android operating system and has a data plan is important. We also utilize a state-of-the-art web-based system so all employees need to have regular access to a computer with Internet access, email and a printer. It is each merchandiser's responsibility to get to their work site, so reliable transportation is a must. Online training is provided for all merchandising employees. We also support our reps in the field via our phone in call center. While our merchandisers work independently, they are not alone.
