I just secured an employment opportunity to work for Kalan. They sell novelty gift items to places like Spencer's and Five Below. I have 4 established locations I will visit anywhere from weekly to monthly, most likely in the 2-3 week cycle. Holiday season the visits will need visits weekly. The pay is stellar and so is the communication. I like that my supervisor lives an hour away from me, and I am looking forward to starting this project.

Do you have the contact info for them ? Who is the Merch Co now ?

I used to do the novelty display in one location but the company that serviced them was bought up by another and we all had to become employees (is that your status on this work ?) and I declined as I was too busy at that time.

I would like to get back to it as I enjoyed the work.

They don't list any employment opportunities on their site and I could not find any employment ads on Indeed.com . How did you find out about and apply for the position?

Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake, at least I'm done with merchandising... for goodness sake.

Pretty sure they don't hire directly, I did the work thru a 2nd party Merch company that was bought up by a bigger one (have lost the names now though).

I found the ad on Craigslist, actually.

I am paid as an IC.

I was hired directly.

NO sales, Larry...merchandising.

Oh, that is interesting. Then the merch company that had them either lost the contract or isn't filling the needs. Thanks for the info.

I applied and they just contacted me. It's IC so no drive time or mileage. Store visits range from 1 to 3 hours biweekly, and are paid per diem. $20 to $50 each. I told them no thanks, don't need the extra paperwork involved in IC work.
