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

    Pros

    Friendly management, flexible shifts, good communication, constructive critiques and much more

    Cons

    Some of the other associates are not so friendly but most are. Sometimes it gets slow meaning fewer hours are available and sometimes it's really busy making for long work weeks but more available hours. Sometimes you have to be open to going to different locations to get hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep the events rolling in steady. Familiar faces at each of the places is always a good thing try to stick a person at 1 or 2 stores as much as possible.

    Pros

    Set your own schedule, lots of tech tools and support, good training, no nights or weekends, great benefits

    Cons

    Mileage reimbursement well below Federal rate, not the best fit for people who don’t like daily travel or completely self-directed work. Must be a good communicator and comfortable with selling.

    Advice to Management

    Mileage reimbursement should be higher

    Pros

    Get to work in many different stores. Having fun talking to customers about the samples being offer that day.

    Cons

    No yearly raises. Not being consistent with weekly work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees yearly raises even if it is just a few cents on a dollar added per work hour. Also when a employee has open availability give them more the 2-4 days a week since we only work 5 1//2 hours per shift .

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work.
    Flexible with your Time.
    Opportunity to Advance

    Cons

    None so far as a Event Specialist

    Advice to Management

    We did a Demo and all employees got t-shirts to wear. After the Demo ended,we had to return the t-shirts. As a new employee or employee who's been there for couple years,ppl love to keep the t-shirts because next time we Demo you Don't Kno who's shirt your wearing,even tho their washed. Maybe it's just my area in Columbia, MD.
