Benefits of Merchandising and Mystery Shopping Jobs

People who are thinking of doing some part time work should consider merchandising jobs. They are usually very simple and most of them just involve working in some retail stores as if you are one of the staff while performing simple tasks such as placing the merchandise correctly, wiping them and ensuring that they are displayed in appealing positions.

Depending on the organization that someone is going to be involved with, some jobs will entail receiving the stock. In other organizations, there are already some predefined plans which may involve: moving the stock into the required area, arranging it according to the outlets standard, and putting up a signage to correspond with the specific items on the shelves. Most of these tasks are performed after operating hours when the store has already closed its operations to the general public.

This job requires extreme agility, and requires paying attention to details while following instructions accordingly whereby merchandisers should completely refrain from applying their creative skills unless they have been permitted by their supervisor to do so, since a number of stores have their own company specific standards, rules and regulations that they would like to be strictly adhered to. Therefore as a part time merchandising contractor, it is wiser to follow exactly what you have been told to do.

If someone is not creative then, a mystery shopping job might work better for them. This type of job entails posing as the store's customer then afterward you will gauge the employee customer service skills and write up a report. In most case the stores head office will hire an outside organization to test their employee’s on an undercover basis. The reason for doing so is that if any of the staff realizes that are being watched, they will only portray their best behaviors and it is only when they are not aware that they are being watched that heir real customers service skills can be seen.

Both merchandising and mystery shopping jobs calls for alertness, following instructions and responsiveness, and anybody possessing such characteristics can easily have these opportunities in their hands.
