    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time

    Pros

    There are none. Maybe a low paycheck every two weeks.

    Cons

    If I could give 0 or negative stars I would. LOWEST PAY IN THE DEMO BUSINESS! There are many other demo companies and "DisAdvantage" farms out their events to them. Work for one of those, do the same work and get paid better! Unfair scheduling. District managers and their management called "regional's" are inconsistent and play favoritism. The company and its upper management lie and bend their rules to accommodate their needs. No advancement. No health benefits. Like most of their "ES's" I am leaving to work for their competition, which they refer to as partners, their jobs for more pay!

    Advice to Management

    Stop over expanding and concentrate on getting better at your business. Better ES's that actually do their job. Hire better upper management that is fair and knowledgeable. Re-train your HR department to be more professional and caring towards your employees.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, good co-workers... pay for internet and mileage/ gas card. Give you computer that is needed and can work from home office

    Cons

    Work you like a dog, even on vacation, you should check emails and do payroll. Unrealistic goals. Uneven pay for same positions

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and realistic. Give raises that mean something, not just .05% or 1%....that is an insult for all work done

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time

    Pros

    Good at Calling Potential Employees

    Cons

    Unfortunately prior to being employed they gave me the run around. It took two weeks and they requested odd information such as someone other than myself filling out an I-9 form. When I couldn't meet that odd request they had me go to a location to meet a manager who never showed up. They wasted two weeks of my time and I didn't even end up working with them because of how frustrating the entire experience was.

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

    Pros

    Its a time consuming job

    Cons

    Low pay, long long hours, high mileage, no team leadership, lots of gossip, hostile work environment, bruising and injuries to body, physically mentally emotionaly hurtful to the human condition

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers to act like managers. Raise starting pay. IRS states 54 cents a mile so raise it from 30 something cents. Get rid of collared shirt rule or offer clothing allowance.

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

    Pros

    When there are no problems with people the work is not a baffling type of difficult.

    Cons

    If that thing says, say, 20 hours there may actually be no job such as this offered to you or any usable position at all. They hire for positions promising 20 hours a week and once their immediate need passes the hours are jacked down to could be six or none a week and Many/Most will be shed at not being able to deal with that : I would stay away from them. There could be NO work coming to you at all if you accept a job for 30 hours a week because they only have that for their bad spot of a couple of weeks.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure how much of the problem was being caused by my manager. She hoarded the hours for the older employees as the company continuously hired on scores and scores of poor new employees whose hours she immediately slashed to 0-6 so that evermore new employees would be loaded in. She also paired employees with products she thought best befitted them and sometimes the combinations were insulting or degrading.

    Pros

    Flexibility in your schedule; vacation hours build up after staying with the company for a long time. My immediate supervisors were always kind.

    Cons

    Too many to name. Compensation does not match up with the workload. Goals can be very unobtainable and cause low morale throughout the team.

    Advice to Management

    Promote top talent sooner rather than later or else they will move on to something bigger and better.

    Better communication with staff from top to bottom, a lot of times I had to figure what everything out on my own as no one seems to understand what
