Quest maintains a national network of part-time Merchandising Associates that perform light merchandising assignments for our retailer and supplier clients. Services include shelf and display maintenance, product resets, brochure distribution, product stocking, and sign and graphics installation. Merchandising Associates typically work individually in stores near their homes, usually during normal business hours Monday through Friday. Assignments may be one-time, weekly, monthly or quarterly, and Merchandising Associates can typically make their own schedules based on the project deadlines provided by Quest, all of which provides enormous flexibility.
