Job Description

Attention tech fanatics!

ActionLink is inviting you to join our team of Electronics Retail Merchandisers!

Welcome to ActionLink's Merchandising Application Page. To help you decide if working for us 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 nationwide representing many leading consumer electronics brands. We are hired by product manufacturers and retail vendors with a mission to enhance our clients' brand presence and appeal. Our merchandising team takes ownership and professional pride in bringing displays to life and making our clients' products shine.

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.

Because our company specializes in consumer electronics, our merchandisers work with many of the latest technologies which can include: computers/laptops, tablets, mobile devices, TV and home theater, audio equipment, appliances, and more.  So if you're a hands-on, detail-oriented person who loves retail or keeping up with the latest electronics on the market, this could be a great fit for you!

General Job Duties:

  • Follow instructions and use a variety of hand-held tools to build interactive displays
  • Reset sections, endcaps, and shelving according to planogram
  • Troubleshoot to ensure power displays are fully functional
  • Connect devices to various media players
  • Pull damaged or broken products off sales floor and keep product area clean and organized
  • Complete routine merchandising tasks such as stocking, auditing, and updating signage
  • Travel locally to complete store visits within assigned territory
  • Maintain regular communication with remote District Manager via phone and email
  • Complete daily online reports to document visits, including submitting digital photos

What days & hours will I work?

Projects in your assigned territory must be completed during the week they are scheduled. With very few exceptions, you control the dates and times that you complete the projects assigned to you.  Assignments can be completed anytime between the stores' opening hours and 6:00 PM Mondays through Thursdays, with Fridays typically reserved for any last minute in-store needs or adjustments.  Our merchandising reps enjoy the flexibility with this type of scheduling.  

What does it take to be an ActionLink Merchandiser?

ActionLink has a great relationship with our technology clients and retail partners, so it is important that each of our merchandisers be organized and 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. They must be able to communicate effectively with employees in their stores to get the job done smoothly.

Some merchandising projects can be physical. This position requires lifting up to 50 pounds on a regular basis, standing for hours at a time, frequently reaching above and below the shoulders, kneeling, bending, and crouching. Occasional use of ladders may be required.

Our merchandisers work quickly and efficiently using their smart devices and personal computers to retrieve instructions and 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 merchandisers through a dedicated field management team and phone-in tech support call center.  While our merchandisers work independently, they are not alone! It is our goal to ensure that you will have all the training, tools, and on-the-job resources you need to succeed.

Additional Requirements:

  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • Must be legally authorized to work in the U. S.
  • Must maintain our professional appearance standards
