    Pros

    Flexible, No nights , No weekends. Off and Home by 2:30 pm or earlier.,
    Teamwork! Everyone is very nice.

    Cons

    If you are a night owl such as I.

    Advice to Management

    Help new employees to access the info for hours and payroll as well as schedules. I've needed help signing on for over a week and I have not received help.. Also, maybe have the Team Lead be someone that is not quite as whiny, and doesn't complain so much. It is not good for morale nor does it make new employees feel welcome or confident about the position.

    Like the work I have done so far. Like having weekends off an no nights. After working 24 years in retail. I enjoy going in to work.

    Would be nice to be made aware of hours are cut during a holiday. This would help if we were aware of when these are so some one could plan ahead.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vacation time, setting your own schedule.

    Cons

    Treated like a rented muel, car allowance.

    Advice to Management

    Work the field, overload of what to be expected, 100% coverage. So if you take time off you have to do double coverage. Clients are not getting what they pay for.
