What does a Merchandiser do? 

Great merchandising makes products stand out and captures the attention of shoppers. It enables customers to find the products they love quickly and easily. As a merchandiser, you’ll visit retail stores to stock products, build displays, or install promotional materials, ultimately increasing sales.  

These part-time, flexible roles are perfect for students, parents, or those looking to supplement their income while maintaining a busy lifestyle. Merchandisers thrive on independence and make their own schedules within a given week.  

Premium provides instructions and support, but it’s up to each Retail Specialist to get the job done in stores. There’s a huge sense of accomplishment taking each project from start to finish and stepping back to see the improvement.

What does a Brand Ambassador do? 

While Premium was founded as a merchandising company, our capabilities have expanded. We have a variety of field sales and marketing teams located across North America offering full-time and seasonal positions. 

Brand Ambassadors become product experts in the brand and category they represent. Retail marketing is an excellent fit if you take pride in providing exceptional customer service, love solving problems, and go above and beyond for others.  

Brand Ambassadors visit multiple store locations each day to educate retail associates on an assortment of products. They help shoppers find the right product, answer questions or provide demonstrations. Outside of the store, these teams also represent the brand online or at events, collaborate to deliver widespread impact and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the latest products.
