    Met with the supervisor at the time and his boss for a casual one-on-one. This was several years ago when the process was much more simple. Now one would have to go through HR and fill out the proper forms.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Advantage Solutions (Greenville, MS) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite quick and easy as any other interview and it took about a week to complete the entire process. You must have auto insurance and your own vehicle. You will have to do a 10 panel drug test at a LabCorp or a third party location. You will also have to get a manager, supervisor, or (if you don't have one in your area) a friend or neighbor to complete the second part of your i-9 form. You will have to provide them with 2 proofs of identity and be present with them when completing the form. It is not a hard thing to do, but it has to be done in a timely manner, or they will no longer consider you for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advantage Solutions (Dover, DE).

    Interview

    I had a 30 min phone interview with Human Resources in CA in response to me applying via a Glassdoor job posting. I was then contacted by the manager that would be my immediate supervisor. I met him at a store and we ran through the store process. I got to see him interact with some store employees and was shown some of the programs they use. He asked me some question about what issues I recognized on the shelves. Afterward we sat down at a near my table and he asked me about my hopes for the job, my expectations, work history, availability, transportation, etc. Afterward he said he had some other interviews to compare mine to. The next day I received a call from human resources telling me I had been selected if I wanted the job. I said yes, received info and forms to complete, and started my training a week or two later.
