    I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -SUPER flexible
    -The supervisor was so sweet and understanding
    -The pay for the work was well worth it

    Cons

    -Not much room for growth
    -Could get boring at times

    Advice to Management

    I wish I could have stayed on the program longer, I had a blast working for this company. I got to attend workshops and had one on ones with my supervisor time to time and it was perfect! My only wish was to get real replies to the feedback I left, as well as more incentive to push product harder then the " one time sell the most baskets and win a giftcard to the store you work at!" promotion. Something more... like a vacation or a something with a little more incentive then what was being offered. If you were to get people giftcards for selling x amount baskets that woulda made more sense, and if you sell this higher x amount you'll get an even bigger prize. Also, I would've loved to be promoted within the company and work even harder. But alas, twas not to be.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Store was nice, and all staff very friendly

    Cons

    Never got a paystub and pat was not adding up to hours worked. Onboard process and training was a disaster. Also, they called me after they hired me to ask me if I was interested in a position. I said I already started training with y’all, so is this for a promotion? They said no. Very poor record keeping here.

    Advice to Management

    Give paper paystubs since they weren’t online, and communicate better all around.
