    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co workers are nice and pleasent but thats it

    Cons

    The company stalls and says your career is in your hands and calls bonuses incentives and has not handed out a raise in years and only hands out "incentives" to a few selective employees. High turnover. If you have another option take it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least accept that theres a cost of living expense over two years thats roughly a 6.5 % paycut if no raise is given out no wonder my office has lost every employee but 2 and I'll be gone soon as well.

    The work can be stimulating but the reward and compensation are ridiculously low.

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

    Pros

    As a rep visiting retailers there are ample opportunities to meet new people and see different areas. The work is roughly 65% routine and boring but the remaining time can be interesting as the tasks are to secure additional placements for client products without paying for it. From clip strips to end caps and everything in between. There is continual pressure to produce promotional results as well as sell product.

    Cons

    The rewards are a joke. Salaries are minimal, reps start at under $12 per hour with advancement and salary increases virtually non existent. Benefits are far too expensive for anyone in this pathetic salary range. The firm has little ability to communicate in a professional and team driven manner and acts accordingly. Further, your home becomes a company warehouse for promo items as well as your car, your cell phone usage is not reimbursed nor is there any mention of using your personal computer for business activity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The salaries are pathetically low. Benefits are not affordable. Wake up. When the economy turns around two thing will happen: You will quickly loose your top reps...who will be replaced by people who are worth paying $12 per hour.
