    Pros

    The company is good and has common sense approach. They hire good people who work hard and that are out going. Management is very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    It is a flex schedule mostly weekend work which may not suit to all individuals. The work is for outgoing people only although other can learn and fit in well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometime product aren't not available, so better communication with their client would be helpful, people enjoy the work and having everything right is fulfilling.

    Former Employee - Retail Sales Merchandiser in Saint Joseph, MO

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This has been one of my favorite jobs so far. Worked well with school for me. Was able to work a schedule that fit my school schedule. Loved the position and felt that I learned a lot from it. Did occasionally have extra work available for people who were wanting extra hours.

    Cons

    Downside was that being that my area was small, I didn't get enough hours. Generally had only 12 hours a week. Sometimes communication was hard with managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for merchandisers to get into contact with managers. One of my managers use to have to make store calls in an area with no cell phone service and would sometimes take a couple days to answer an email.

    Decent Company, Bad Commnication

    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing

    Pros

    Working with Nice people, Having Understanding Bosses, The Pay and Hours are decent for the amount of experience you need

    Cons

    Communication is almost non-existent. If you do not ask questions you will never know what is going on and sometimes when you do ask, they still have no idea. The hiring process is horrible and they deceive you into thinking you are getting mileage covered. There is LOTS of driving involved. They also told me details about the job that were not true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a employee handbook that everyone receives. Have a weekly newsletter or email. Have mileage count by what is entered at the beginning and end of each drive. Offer carpool finder.

    ASM has been been a good employer - very positive attitude toward it's employees. They encourage and entrepreneurial spirit.

    Raises do not come annually with reviews. No salary bands.

    Set up annual increases - especially for hourly associates based on merit.
