    I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a Merchandiser, I have some flexibility with the schedule I work and the itinerary I choose.
    The pay is fair and I have received raises.
    Medical and savings benefits are great.
    Holidays paid and off!
    I have a Monday through Friday day shift schedule.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons yet.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more hands on sales training. Something like shadowing another on a sales call. Best way to learn to meet objections.
    Also maybe tailor incentives and expectations according to individual territories. These are often quite diverse, Urban, Suburban and Rural, small local grocers to large chains, and they are also often economically diverse.

    Pros

    Good benefits, time off , sick pay, great team and supervisor. Made my own schedule

    Cons

    Pay should be higher for the time and dedication spent preparing for the day ahead. Reps should receive better vehicle mileage reimbursement for the large territory, it was not at all adequate.
