    I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Advantage for nearly 4 years now and coming from another company in the same industry there is no comparison. I had a major family illness during my employment here and my managers and their managers went above and beyond to make sure I was able to work as well as take care of my duties to my family. At Advantage I am able to contribute actively and am encouraged to continuously better myself through their various training opportunities. The pay is competitive and we are treated as professionals rather than micromanaged. My coworkers are supportive and teamwork and cross department collaboration is the norm here.

    Cons

    The only con I have is the review process is pretty informal and sometimes it is nice to have an annual sit down to discuss performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing...you do great things for your employees.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work for those with merchandising experience. Flexible schedule, working with teams, fine tune merchandising knowledge and skills on the job.

    Cons

    Hours are erratic, distance to jobs can sometimes exceed the "max" mileage you will be asked to drive to get to a job location.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline processes, eliminate the scheduling clutter/backlog, keep up the hard work, keep growing.

    Employees expendable when making business decision

    Advice to Management

    When shutting down a division try harder to find a home for those quality employees. Good employees are hard to find.

    Pros

    Thoroughgoing screening process for employment.

    Cons

    A tight glove to fit. Unforgiving demands of do and don'ts in execution of event.
    Many rules unwritten, learned on the job. Not employment for someone who snaps at correction.

    Advice to Management

    None

    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.
