From November 2001 to March of 2013 I was a Merchandiser for SMI/Eurpac, Dallas Texas. I was at the Hill AFB Exchange for the entire 12 years. On occasion, I went to other installations in the area. I also helped other Vendor's with Plan-O-Gram resets and Inventory. I am familiar with all phases of the industry though my experience is on the Military end. I had up to 75 companies that I had the opportunity of working with. Most of my experience is with Cosmetics and Movies/DVD's. I have done many complete resets on my own, though I prefer a second pair of eyes if at all possible. I enjoyed working at the Base Exchange and had good relationships with everyone that I had the pleasure of working with. It was also enjoyalbe being able to help those in the Military and those retired from the Military. It wasn't in my job description but it gave me joy....
