    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules. Lot of opportunities within the organization for those who are willing to relocate. Very good Paid time off program for a retail company.

    Cons

    There is little developmental support or career planning provided by management or the training department. Pay for the amount of work required on a managerial level is not commensurate with the time involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure employees are fully backed and supported by management.

    Everything. The pay. The managers. This company is amazing.

    You'll have to stand for very extensive periods of time but you can bring a stool from home.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had a Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    I had felt that I could have done better for myself by leaving the company, but found out that I should have stayed. I believe that I was approved for rehire, also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am FOOD SAFETY CERTIFIED, and have a license to serve alcohol.(ABS). Gary Simec was my former superviser, and I know his sister Rachael Simec which had hired me at that particular time.

    Food Demo Associate

    Current Employee - Food Demo
    Current Employee - Food Demo

    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best thing is they pay decent; you get paid to do reports online and any online training; and they really encourage documenting all administrative time to get paid for it whether it is checking schedules, email or a phone conversation with your manager. It is all online work, besides the food demo itself. It is a pretty independent job.

    Cons

    The con is just standing on your feet for long hours and sometimes you get a boring product with no coupons or demonstration, but overall, it is very good for part-time work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing to complain about. Management is very organized. Sometimes, just need more work.

    Current Employee - Retail Sales Merchandiser  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Current Employee - Retail Sales Merchandiser in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Not having to report to an office everyday is the reason I stay with ASM. Also, the benefit of vacation and holiday time that ASM offers cannot be matched by any other food broker.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion availabilities', lack of a car allowance and a gas amount that actually covers the use of your personal auto

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your retail reps and remember that we are the face of ASM!

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management structure is good
    Friendly work environment
    Office is in a location of minimal traffic- made for an easy commute to work

    Cons

    Thought previous location of office was better- in the new location, cubicles were very close together and you could hear everything everyone else was doing
    Pay could be better
