    I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Been with Advantage for 13 years as a RSM
    Even through you work alone the 2 supervisors I've worked with are always available for. any issues or success's you have other DRTs on the team communicating with other DRTs helping each other with big displays
    Positive working environment flexible hours great selling Incentive's

    Cons

    Mileage and car reimbursement doesn't cover the wear and tear on the vehicle
    Lots of POS supply's sent to my home lucky I have a 2car garage

    Advice to Management

    Adjust car reimbursement
    Some teams have different reimbursements for their car

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Your off by 630, no boss hounding you all the time, schedule gets made weeks in advance, pay rate isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Schedule gets changed all the time once it's posted without notice, it's hard to work a second job with this part time job, they'll send you 20-30 miles away without asking if you want to travel. If you can make it on part time this isn't a bad job. Don't try to work 2 part time jobs when this is one of them though.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change employees schedule without at least informing them once it's changed.

    More turn over than preferable.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, Paid Travel, Paid Mileage, Paid Hotel. Worked alone most of the time unless doing major resets then work with a team.
    Met some awesome people while working for Advantage and traveled to big cities and small towns around Texas and sometimes out of state.

    Cons

    A few of the downsides would be of course putting in miles on your vehicle, sometimes having to drive to one city and be at another city 4-7 hours away by the next day. Sometimes driving so far to do a project that lottery takes no more than 10 minutes or arrive and the stores employees are already doing the project themselves or has been completed (that was one of the most aggravating thing especially if its only ONE project that you had to do out in that area). Working on teams with grumpy older folks who dedicate their lives to only doing that type of work and look at you like its not okay to be happy. Hardly no pay raises! But having to work out of town makes up for that sometimes (big checks!)

    Pros

    Different items every day, meet interesting people, great manager

    Cons

    More preparation time, more space to prepare and quality utensils.

    Advice to Management

    To prepare a high quality presentation we need not be rushed, we also need quality utensils. The utensils may cost a little more but you get more samplers with a quality sample.
