I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in May 2010.

Interview Details – contacted by a recruiter same day then the ROM gave me the run around on getting an interview after that i got a sit down interview in a club with the DSM and was hired same day but took 3 weeks to get paperwork completed.

Event Specialist Interview

Event Specialist
Huntsville, AL

I applied online - interviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in March 2013.

Interview Details – Not a long process. Application, if accepted, job offer. If the offer is accepted by you,you submit tax information. Then drug testing and I-9 formation.Then you will get to meet your supervisor for an interview. This company only wants hands and feet to be on the floor, regardless of the quality of the work being done. They expect event specialist to study for each demo, which is good, some do. They expect you to interact with members, which is good, some do. They expect you to demo up to 5 items. Cook, chop, portion out product, make eye contact, walk around your cart to mingle, all the while selling your products.

Interview Question – Most questions were answered on the application. During the interview, the club manager was in her own world. Just not interested in the process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was a take it or leave it situation.

Retail Project Merchandiser Interview

Retail Project Merchandiser
Fort Wayne, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in July 2014.

Interview Details – Interview was virtually non-existent. The area supervisor told me what area was open. It is about 35 miles from where I live (one way). I'll give it a month or so, but with the price of gasoline, and no mileage reimbursement, hopefully something closer might open up in a few weeks.

Negotiation Details – The recruiter told me in preliminary phone interview that the rate of pay was $10 per hour with mileage or $11 per hour with no mileage. Area supervisor said she'd never heard of that. Mileage reimbursement only kicked in AFTER first 40 miles of leaving your home and is excluded with the last 40 miles back to your home.

Retail Reset Merchandiser Interview

Retail Reset Merchandiser
Tempe, AZ

I applied through other source - interviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in March 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was fairly easy. I had a one on one interview at a Carl's Junior with the supervisor who asked questions about my knowledge of the business to assess my skills. The process for the paperwork was difficult. It's done electronically. I had to fill out some forms that required a notary that I in turn had to fax.

Interview Question – The questions the supervisor asked were questions only someone with experience with merchandising would know.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my work schedule. I would tell others that the supervisors are working on upper management for better pay. Currently, they didn't seem too negotiable with the pay.
