    Very Stressful one way street, very unbalanced between work and family.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing

    Pros

    I stayed at Advantage because I loved working for our client, Mars Confection North America division.

    Cons

    Pay rates, increases, auto allowance. Our division was managed by FEAR. The person you put in to run the Mars SF team was a very poor choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people in the field are your greatest resource, treat them with respect, give them pay raises they deserve.

    Pros

    Interseting work. Get to meet a variety of people and see all the new products (mostly prepared convience foods). You are inside a retail store. Work is mostly independent, not a lot of management looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    No chance of advancement. No raises-what you start at is what you get even after years of work. Your manager is not very good about returning calls or emails. You pretty well have to figure out things on your own or call corp support and stay on hold for at least a half hour before they answer-using your phone minutes. Hours are very irregular and cannot be depended on. One week you may work 24 and the next week nothing. They hire and hire with no work for their existing employees. If you need a few bucks for that extra little something its ok but it's very hard to get enough hours to pay any regular bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistant with your employees. Monitor your DSM's better. Go to the stores and see how the events are being done. Don't rely on reports that are so easily manipulated. Make sure product is in the store. The incentive programs are not fair if all stores do not have the same amount of product-specialists can not sell what is not there.
