    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent insurance plans for you and your family.
    Full-time, with a steady, constant, schedule; unlike your team you're managing, you always know what days you'll work and for how long.
    Position is easy if you know how to use technology and Microsoft Office Suite.
    Upper management lets you manage your team with little outside interference, and trusts you to coach your team as you best see fit.

    Cons

    If you need to contact corporate for support, it can take anywhere from a few hours to up to a couple of weeks.
    Little-to-no room for moving up in the company.
    You're expected to work 42-45 hours per week, but it can very eaaily inflate to 60 hours with no additional benefits.
    You are unable to recommend and implement wage increases for your employees when they deserve it, causing them to become discouraged and seeking other employment.
    Will be shutting down operations by the end of year and having us apply with an outside company to retain our positions.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are a lot more motivated and engaged if they know they will be rewarded for their efforts. Having employees with the company for over 5-8 years with no pay increase despite consistent results discourages them from doing a good job with their sales.

    Pros

    Pay
    Freedom to work alone
    Paid holidays off

    Cons

    Management very back and forth
    On the road a lot
    Job depends on other people to get things for you to do

    Advice to Management

    Dont tell your employees that you will be told no and that's ok and then complain and reprimand them when they get told no. This job depends on other peoples mood and ability to get things down for us to actually work.

    Pros

    Like the work I have done so far. Like having weekends off an no nights. After working 24 years in retail. I enjoy going in to work.

    Cons

    Need items to dust with we only have 2 currently it is hard when 5 of us need these . We do use paper towels an spray bottle.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to be made aware of hours are cut during a holiday. This would help if we were aware of when these are so some one could plan ahead.

    Pros

    Love the flexibility to work usually only on weekends, excellent online training, making extra money and have time to take care of other things when needed.

    Cons

    Not full time, no benefits - such as medical or 401k or vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully try to get as least some benefits for part time employees or try to offer full time position with benefits.

    Pros

    It's nice for extra part-time work.

    If you have another job the hours are set during weekend hours that makes it hard to have a second job.

    Clarify what needs to be done as educational once product is gone or if not available.
