    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 have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time

    Pros

    I get a lot of hours. I read in a lot of reviews that hours tend to be sparse, and even the girl who trained me said there are some weeks where she doesn't work at all, but I haven't had that experience. Pay is also pretty good... with all the hours I get, I don't feel like I'm in a position to complain about the pay. Work/life balance is pretty awesome too. I've only been working with Advantage for about a month so it's possible I'm speaking too soon, but so far I really love it.

    Cons

    My coworkers tend to be really lazy... coming in really late, leaving a couple hours early, barely working when they are there. It can be annoying at times. Sometimes the store doesn't have what I'm supposed to be sampling out or selling in stock so I have to do an educational demo and those shifts tend to feel like they're 10 hours long rather than only 6. Although I really like the timekeeping system, I wish I could access JET from Chrome rather than using Internet Explorer. It can be glitchy at times.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing awesome. Keep it up.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at the Santa Ana office, and the people are wonderful. There was plenty of training given and, after that, there was always someone to lend a helping hand. I worked with current and prospective employees throughout the country and was impressed by how well-loved the company is. Also, I was impressed with how many well-known products the company represents, which makes the work even more exciting. As a contract employee, I was still treated like family.

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Thoroughgoing screening process for employment.

    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.
