    Merchandiser Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Advantage Solutions (Apollo Beach, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Completed all the initial online application process resulting in a phone screening. I was emailed interview questions from the supplier Advantage Solutions was representing as well as Advantage questions I should be prepared for during my online skype interview. I did lots of reading and research on both companies to prepare and have a solid interview. Proceeded to have the interview that went well. This is when things broke down. Communication stopped so I contacted the company to follow up. At this point I was told the territory position I applied to was being rearranged and it could take some time. At this point I asked if the application I submitted will still be good or will I have to reapply and go through the process again. I was told I would have no need that my application will simply slide over to whatever position is created or available but it will take some time and they couldn't give me a time frame. I started noticing a few weeks later positions being posted and emailed back if I was still being considered. At this point I was told that the position I applied for was abolished but I could reapply to others. I specifically asked weeks prior to this if I needed to reapply and was told "no need" but now I'm told another story. It was pretty disappointing because this seemed like a strong company that I was highly interested in but this process and communication was very poor, sloppy, and frankly a bit dishonest.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advantage Solutions in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online about 4 weeks ago and received a short phone call a few days later giving me a description of what the job was. The lady that called was extremely helpful, she then instructed me after the phone call that I had to prepare for another interview along with a 1-2 minute video describing "My Brand" (aka: What make's you the person to hire).

    The next interview was with the same lady. We discussed the process of the video and how/if I enjoyed making it. She then asked me several behavioral questions and after answering them she gave me tips for my next interview. I was also allowed to choose the location that I wanted to relocate to and the next interview was based on that selection.

    The final interview was a week later, it was a Skype interview with the team you would be placed with. This interview lasted about 40 minutes, mine specifically had two gentleman who took turns asking me questions. I was then told I would hear back from Advantage Solutions soon.

    A couple day's later I got a job offer.

    The overall process was very simple and very efficient. They were always on time and very informative to talk to!

    The initial interview is very friendly; she made it feel more like a conversation rather than an interview. Followed by an in-person interview, which was a bit intimidating due to the fact that there were 3 interviewers, but overall very friendly and informative.
