What products does LaMi merchandise? Can you give me your thoughts on working for this company?

There is a job posting on NARMS, but I didn't see anything written about them here at volition.

LAMI has items on every aisle in FOOD LIONS,BLOOMS, AND PUBLIX.
These are impulse items on metal clip strips.
Ex: at pasta you might find a spaghetti spoon. at water you might
find bottle stoppers. on freezer door at pizza you will find a pizza cutter, etc. Everything is categorized. It is a fantastic program
and the supermarkets love the profits and the fact they we service/
pack out the orders and we take an order. The stores no longer have
to deal with it. The program is set up beautifully and it is a very
easy job. I am an area mgr. and it is regular work (store service is
every 2 wks for most stores), and yes, I service stores also.
My reps love their job, as do I.
Hope this helps.

I don't know whether this company has a website or not. I was
wondering if Lami Products pays mileage?

I recently was interviewed by a district manager from LaMi Products; they've just picked up an account for A&P Supermarkets; in the conversation we had the pay is per store to do the set up for the clipstrip progam and a few extra dollars for mileage. Every store is not the same size and when you divide the amount of hours it took to do against the pay it may come out to as little as $9/hr. He knows somewhere along the way he's going to lose merchandisers. I'm going to see how it turns out and keep those interested informed.

Anybody have any new information on this company (i.e. pay, feedback for problems)? I was contacted today about working with them and am very excited.

I think they are a great company to work for. The job will seem hard at first because of the number of products but the more you do it the easier it gets. You will remmeber what isle what product goes on and what was ordered. You do a easy and hard store the same day and you will see it is not that bad.

Enjoy

I just started with them. Another person was hired along side me to split my territory....and quit right after a 2-day training. He never gave it a shot and thought their pay structure would be jipping him in the end. Now my territory is doubled- which is fine...but we are VERY rural here and sometimes it seems like a waste of time/money spending $5 in gas to only get a few hours of work. But its all up to how you schedule your service days/times to make sure you get the most outta your trips "into town". They pay .38c after the standard 20 mile rule and drive time for longer distances.

The work is super easy- a monkey can do it. Just takes a a few weeks to get into your groove. The good thing is that its your store and the better you maintain it-the more product you sell-the more you'll order- the more you get paid because they pay by how much an invoice is divided by some number that determines your hours. It all works out- so far.

The paperwork and faxing every order after every visit is a pain though.

They are not set up for "online reporting" like most companies. They do everything the old fashioned way- but I heard they may go to handhelds in the future.

Very indie job w/little hassles.

Does this company pay you a standard hourly rate or is it based on commission?

They have the clip strip program. You go in and pack out new items and then you take an order that is shipped to the store. When you go in a Food Lion and check out the CS you will see what it is. Mixing spoons on baking isle, toys on the cereal isle. The clip strip matches the isle you work. I don't do the job but I have a friend that does it and this is the way she describs the job.

Hope this helps.

The main office is in Huntingdon Valley, PA.
The toll free number is 1-800-220-5264.
When you call ask them for the DM's information for the area you want to work. (I think her name is Tina)

that's how it SHOULD work but I know for a fact that sometimes it takes the office weeks if not longer to post an opening after the DM requests the job to be posted.

I service stores in SC. Over the past year or so I have also noticed a drop in sales. But I think it maybe because Lami has so many items that are out of stock rather than the economy. When I place my orders the items that I need to order are OOS a lot of the time. For example the maisto and tonka trucks are OOS right now. We are expected to keep these items on a power panel in the store. Ahhh! and where are we suppose to get them from?

I agree OOS's are a big problem but the biggest issue is the amount of work we put in.
