    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.

    Easy. Basic skills needed to perform this easy and low paying job. Hours were fine and it really wasn't very difficult.

    Pros

    Great to put on a resume if you want initial sales experience. They will essentially hire anyone so this was great for getting my foot in the door for sales.

    Cons

    If you don't have reliable transportation then consider where you will be working. They might schedule you at locations outside of your biking or bus range so that can be tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't complain here. Some of the marketing strategies were a little strange, like sampling chicken salad while selling dog food. That was strange.

    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.

    Pros

    During down time (not summer) you have a very flexible schedule. Company pays for a hotel if working away from home, which was frequent for me. Could potentially make a good amount of money for a HS graduate level job.

    Cons

    Client (Home Depot) was frequently a source of frustration and wasted time. Far too often I would call ahead, only to show up and find no jobs pulled. Some HD managers insisted on extreme quotas that required 14-16 hour days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear guidelines to the stores, who will often try to use assemblers for "extra" labor without pay. Create better work submission systems.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were phenomenal!

    Cons

    1.) Starting pay is low. 2.) They only increase pay by 10% on promotions AT MOST. 3.) Won't payout vacation when quitting. 4.) May ask you to leave after you put in your "required notice" and won't pay you 5.) Corporate doesn't care about people outside of HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. Show some respect. Listen to employees
