    Just your average corporate company.

    Former AS for AG

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSet your own schedule, meeting and working with diverse employees and clients, strong corporate structure, company perks (company car/cell phone), relocation assistance

    ConsOutside of ASIT program, not strong continuous training for AS...some geographic territories are too large (300+ accounts)...not all territories are the same, may take over territory that has major issues but only have a limited amount of time to fix.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure every new AS goes through the ASIT program

    Working For AG

    Merchandiser (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsIndependent Working environment, received job assignment via company website
    Go do the work
    Very minimal contact with AG management after a brief training period
    Very flexible hours

    ConsPart Time positions only --- sometimes not enough hours though it is based on seasonal demand.

    Pay 8.00 an hour not the greatest sometimes considering mileage to drive to accounts

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer some full time positions i.e. 40 hrs
    The job is physically demanding, upping the pay scale a bit would be great.
    12.00 would be a good wage to consider as the cost of fuel vs hours worked its a wash or break even
