Constantly changing policies, little to no support, long hours, for low pay make this job difficult to meet goals.

Current Employee - Club Supervisor
Current Employee - Club Supervisor

I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing

Pros

Great co-workers
OK benefits
Ability to have some creativity
Promotion from within is an option
Travel expenses are covered
Drug and background screening is required

Cons

Policies seem to unoficially change, without notice
High turnover rate in HR or other offices, make dealing with problematic employees a nightmare
Hours are very long
Appreciation is limited, and deal out in an offhand manner
Salary is very low, compared to simiar positions
Bonuses are difficult to achieve
Club managers (not employed by ASM), are extremely often extrememly difficult to work with, and ASM does not seem interested in holding them to their contract obligations; only interested in adhering to our contract, even if it compromises safety, integrity, and home life of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employee spoke loud and clear through a survey. I believe ASM is trying to interpret the results, in a manner that suits them. Employees are tired of low pay, long hours, unstable schedules, and poor communication. Listen and learn, get out into the field and see what is exactly going on. Hold the Wal Mart corporation accountable for their responsibilities as well. Make DSM's, ROM's and DRO's communicate effectively, and stop making up their own rules. The inconsitency is beyond difficult to work with. Consider fixing issues with one launch, before starting another launch. Consider using current CSs to train, when new launches do occur, to maintain consistency.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing

    Pros

    Decent pay for a part-time job.

    Cons

    Ever changing start/stop times. Ever changing policies and procedures. Poor communication between Corporate to Club Supervisors to Event Specialists. Too much favoritism. Not consistent in enforcing policies. Too much "bending" of the rules dependent on the employee. Too many employees don't have good work ethics. Just a paycheck for them. Supervisors don't encourage employees. Pressure to increase sales without any additional compensation. Requirement to have computer at home and to check schedule regularly without time compensation. Seem to hire just anybody without consideration into any qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better screening of applicants before hiring. Better training of Club Supervisors or hire those with better management skills. Teach Club Supervisors how to handle troublesome employees and to maintain a better, more positive work environment. Develop a consistent work schedule and policies. Corporate needs to address employee concerns in a timely manner. Corporate needs to process pay increases in a more timely fashion. Need to work on follow-through with pay increases and vacation pay.
