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

    Pros

    Liked my job and the people.

    Cons

    Pile on the work. Unfair hourly wages hard to get good raises even if you are top employee. With good reviews. New hires come in making more an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the ones that got you where you are. Blame upper management and BDMs, buyers, office junkies in Arkansas for sinking the ship.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    RSM was part time and lead me to the RSR full time position. Promoting from within. RSR position had sale bonuses, both included meal per Diem with overnight stays and mileage reimbursement. But jobs like this, they are only as good as the managers, Remote working, independently.

    Cons

    Managers can make or break this type of job, and one did, but I was able to transfer to the RSR position. They prefer to promote college grads over work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Extremely slow if you don't have a degree and near impossible if you aren't willing to relocate.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Own work schedule, flexible hours

    Cons

    I worked here for 3 years and got a new supervisor 6 months ago.. Just meet him last week. Took us 5 hours to do 2 stores, that would normally only take up to 2 hours, I had a altiod in my mouth and he called HR to tell them he thought he smelled alcohol on my breath, remind you my first time ever meeting him.. Very critical of everything I did for 6 hours. Never had a problem with my former boss, but this guy was so arrogant it was gut wrenching. Worked all day without a lunch and never meeting or working with me before did my review and gave me low scores.. Then said my former boss didn't train me well enough so I'd need to be retrained. This guy was an idiot, if you live in the northwest beware of this management

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the workers you have, and communication is key.

    Pros

    Excellent team members. They have been in the industry for many successful years. The manufacturers we represent and good solid product lines.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything negative to say. If I have any issues to express is the how new my division is and trying to get it up and going, and with my lack of experience in the grocery business can create some frustration.
