Can anyone tell me how to get a cosmetic merchandising job. Most of the companies must farm out their jobs to a 3rd party merch. cpompany since I never can find job listings for merchandisers on the actual company web page. Thanks.

Premium Retail and National Retail both do work with cosmetics companies.

MCA, P&G and Certified Reports also do cosmetic resets. I also heard that Spar does this type of work.[:p]

I work directly for a cosmetics company as a merchandiser. I found the job through the classifieds.

I work for Premium Retail Services and have been offered cosmetic re-sets there. I have never accepted any though as they have not been in my area. I also know that Certified Reports does them. I have done one or two for them. They are a self assign site so you can go there and check out what you want or not. They also have a variety of other jobs also.

P&G does do cosmetic resets, however, they use their own people to do the sets. It's the same for almost all of their merchandising activities these days.

I was a rep for Revlon. Someone who worked for them told me about the job and helped me get it. I am just getting back into merch work after several years at home with my kids. I know around my area it was easier to get cosmetic jobs if you knew some one or even meet a rep in a store. It seems to be a word of mouth thing. I can tell you this I thought cosmetic resets were really tedious and time consumming. You could try getting the DM's name and info from the vendor sign in sheets then send a resume.
Good Luck

Well, I would like to gear up this "long ago" thread. I'm wondering if anyone has any information for merchandising companies that do cosmetic resets (since the season is upon us for going to the fall sets). I know about SPAR (I will not work for them again), and I know Greet America has just finished their first merchandising project with Dollar General cosmetic resets, but what about other companies and/or retailers/stores, etc. that do these? Does anyone have any feedback? I love cosmetic resets - crazy, huh?

I dont know if this will help you any, but I worked for this company a couple of years ago. I dont have an email address, but possibly you can find some info on the net. Company name is: Amerisource corp Rita Ann Distributors. Baltimore, Maryland
When I worked for the company I worked in grocery stores,ordering and resets. Good luck, hope this helps you a little.

You can check Certified Marketing/Certified Reports. They are currently assigning (self-assigning) Dollar General stores for a cosmetic project. Also check with Premium Retail Services.

Here are 2 companies that I know that have cosmetics accounts. Cheney Retail Services and BMK from Texas. They service grocery stores with cosmetics and also do resets.

Amerisource corp Rita Ann Distributors. Baltimore, Maryland

This company was bought out by BMK

As far as I know, in my area, BMK has their own merchandising service. There has been listing on NARMS for merchandisers within the past month or so.

Cheney does not do the resets or servicing for that account anymore.

Certified reports, Premium Retail, MCA and Cstar all do resets, but usually with one brand - like Jane, Bonne Bell, Wet and Wild, etc It would be project work and normally take half a day or less.

P&G has their own team of merchandisers and they service certain stores as well as do resets

Mosaic also has a brand new division which services cosmetics. I have seen ads on NARMS for this as well.

HTH!

I do apologize then Marion. In my area, they are no longer servicing the food stores, therefore there were no resets.

Does any one have any ideas to share on cosmetic re-set What would be the easiest way to complete a 4' section with alot of shelves holding finger nail polishs, lip sicks, eye shadows...ect.

I would think to remore a section of a 1'-2' down to 2' and place the new product, then move down a section a time removing another section and placing the new product.....

The last cosmetic reset I did was really a revision re-set, where only some of the section was removed and relocated to another section and made room for new items (cut-in). Some plan-o-grams are not for a complete reset.

Any ideas or share your method of completeing one, please.

SASR has such a category in your profile for you tell them that you desire that speciality. You'd have to login there to see if anything is available in your service area.

Added Information: Convergence Marketing has had cosmetic manufacturing clients in 2010 and advertised again in 2011 for cosmetic reset reps.

SPAR has advertised for cosmetic reset reps in 2011.
