    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 worked at Advantage Solutions part-time

    Pros

    • Lots of exercise (i.e. pulling pallets, moving things around, lots and lots of walking through the stores)
    • Creative liberties when building displays
    • No office

    Cons

    • Hours aren't guaranteed and change quite frequently
    • A lot of immediate requests without the time to complete properly
    • Seasonal/holiday repetitiveness of product but that's with any retail job I suppose

    Advice to Management

    Incentives would be nice as well as display contests (with prizes) for employees other than management

    I worked at Advantage Solutions (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good starter company in a variety of different fields.

    Cons

    The culture is toxic. Don't stay in it for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter. They won't listen. It's a VC owned company which means they squeeze blood from an employee until they turn to stone then belittle them for not producing more blood.

    Pros

    Great company, I learned alot. Very happy with my last position. Only left for a better opportunity. Managers I dealt with were great.

    Set pay scales for each position. Base pay on locale or give cost of living incentive in high cost areas.
