What does Premium's Walmart PSP team do?
Walmart strives to deliver fantastic service for its customers in clean and organized stores which means only Preferred Service Providers (PSPs) are allowed to work inside their stores. Walmart relies on Premium to audit and stock products, build product displays, or reset signage and coupons. Brands partner with us to ensure their products are stocked in stores, which helps drive brand awareness and sales.
Premium has been a PSP since the inception of Walmart’s program in 2017. Our 2,000+ Walmart-dedicated merchandising reps have completed projects for over 250 brands in locations nationwide.
How does scheduling work?
Premium’s Walmart-dedicated merchandising team offers a great work/life balance and is a great fit for students, parents, or retirees. Work generally occurs Monday – Friday between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but you have the flexibility to create your own schedule within that time frame.
Retail Specialists are assigned to multiple Walmart locations based on geography and visit these same stores each week. Some tasks are date-specific, but we communicate those requirements in advance. Hours fluctuate week to week and by store based on the business needs of our clients. The busy holiday season always offers the opportunity to pick up extra hours, and earn more money!
What can I expect if I come on board as a Retail Specialist?
Merchandising is a physical activity. Retail Specialists stand for extended periods of time. You will need to bend and squat as you stock products on shelves. You will turn and reach for boxes, and at times will be required to lift up to 40 pounds. Upon a job offer, Retail Specialists need to pass a background check before starting work at Walmart.
Merchandising projects are pushed out through QTrax, our management platform. For each project, Premium provides step by step instructions to follow. You’ll need a smartphone or tablet to view these instructions, take in-store photos, and submit detailed reporting.
To help you succeed, Premium provides comprehensive training – both online and in-person – as well as specific certifications required to work inside Walmart stores. Premium Zone Leaders, Territory Managers, and other PSP Retail Specialists across the country offer support at every turn through many communication avenues including closed social media groups.

Is there a dress code?
While inside the store, Retail Specialists wear a Premium polo shirt, name badge, black or khaki pants and closed-toed shoes.
How can I excel at Premium?
In addition to placing products in aisles or auditing product stock, Retail Specialists are the face of Premium in Walmart. You’ll excel if you:
Love solving problems. You build lasting relationships with Walmart store managers and associates. You look for creative ways to improve and often go above and beyond for others.
Thrive on independence. You’re organized, dedicated, and love tackling a project from start to finish. Premium is your support system, but it’s up to you to get the job done – even when no one is watching.
Feel pride in your work. As you’ll be representing some of the biggest brands in retail, it’s important that the shelf is stocked and every product is in its proper place.
