The Summer of Returning to Work

The Summer of Returning to Work

Summer 2021 is looking more and more like it’s going to be closer to 2019 than 2020. COVID numbers are down. Multiple COVID vaccinations are available, effective, and free. More states are reopening and getting back to business as usual. For SFS Retail Merchandisers, this is particularly good news, because your work is wholly dependent on being on-site, in the store, helping our retailer clients. It’s just not the type of work you can do remotely.

Here at SFS, we are definitely looking forward to getting back to work at full strength. There is certainly a lot of work to be done. In fact, we have many opportunities…to put it mildly.

SFS is Looking for Help—and Plenty of It

On our Opportunities page, you’ll find all the open projects throughout the company and across the country.

Categories you can search by include:

  • Assembly
  • Independent Merchandiser
  • Retail Merchandiser
  • Travel

A search for Retail Merchandiser would yield a staggering 167 pages of open projects (which is sure to be even higher by the time you read this). With each page listing approximately 20 open projects, that adds up to thousands of open opportunities , across all 50 states.

If you know someone who you think would be a good fit as an SFS Retail Merchandiser, please let us know! We recently revamped our SFS Referral program with an expanded and richer slate of rewards and wrote about it on our blog, with all the details on eligibility, incentives, and how to get started. Definitely check it out, and let us know if you have any referrals.

What makes SFS such a great place to work?

As you know, working with SFS as a Retail Merchandiser is a pretty sweet gig. Lots of our Retail Merchandisers across the country certainly agree. Unlike repetitive office work, where you’re stuck in the same room with the same people every day, SFS gives you freedom, mobility and flexibility to fit your work around your schedule and life—not the other way around.

The Flexibility to Fit Your Life

SFS Retail Merchandisers can set their own hours so work doesn’t interfere with other responsibilities including school, family, and even other jobs. You set your own schedule, and work as much (or little) as you want. In fact, many of our merchandisers work on a part-time basis, using the work as a way to earn extra income.

Be Your Own Boss. As an SFS Retail Merchandiser, you get the satisfaction that comes with being your own boss. Another added benefit of being an independent contractor? The unique tax benefitsand deductions (gas, travel expenses).

Dynamic Work Environment. Your work as a Retail Merchandiser will take you to a diverse range of locations, where you’ll be doing hands-on work in an interactive and engaging environment. If you like meeting new people all the time, and don’t like to be stuck in an office, this is the field for you.

Unlimited Income Potential: Since you are paid by the project, you can work as much—or as little—as you want. It’s your own business, you can grow it how you want.

Retail Merchandising on the Road—Travel Opportunities Available

In addition to all our traditional SFS Retail Merchandiser opportunities , we also have significant opportunities for talented and dedicated merchandisers who are willing to undertake significant travel.

The travel schedule for these Retail Merchandisers can be as much as two weeks on the road for every one week local. Of course, you’ll have the chance to review and approve all your project and travel details ahead of time, so you’ll never have to go on an unwanted trip. For the most part SFS travel opportunities are regional, within three to eight hours away from home via car. However, further travel-based merchandising work is available for SFS team members who are interested.
