    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is more than most weekend retail merchandising programs. It's good for extra money in the pocket.

    Cons

    The company you represent doesn't want to hear negative feedback so nothing improves. Again the pay is decent and it's ok if you can put up with the sugar coated bull that they want to hear.

    Advice to Management

    Negative feed back is a valuable tool for making improvements in product and customer views of a product. Not everything is always rosey.

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good pay for the hours
    company pays for your food manager exam
    pays you for time spent outside of work for work related items such as training, clocking in/out of work.
    App usage, convenience and no hassles
    every thing from training, pay slips and work schedules, emails all online
    depending on your boss, different opportunities of different types of work can be available
    every time you come into work there is a new product to demonstrate
    this job should teach you about efficiency, organization and multi tasking skills but not everyone is fit for it, so make sure its something you want to commit to first.
    working with elderly is great, but sometimes it can be a burden on who can perform what (cooking or non cooking demos) but there are some crafty ladies out there.

    Cons

    can lose days of work in an instant
    training is terrible (online videos)
    taking the food manager exam: if you take over 8hrs to study/take the exam you only get paid for 8, it took me 14hrs because you need to make sure to pass each section with a score of 100 before you can go to the next section.
    if you do not understand technology, smart phones, apps, computer basic skills, this job is not for you.
    be ready to take on any attitude that anyone will give you when it comes to a free sample. (this can also be a pro depending on your attitude, i have my days.)

    Advice to Management

    make more leads have access to computer printing, DDRs so that the manager doesnt have to be the only one dependent on an every day operation, they can actually take a vacation or have a day off. recently changes to making their position hourly, has really backed up alot of work but that is only because i have a manager who cares about doing her job correctly.

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great job if you're a people person. For the most part, you're left to do your work without a lot of interference from management. And the hours aren't too bad.

    Cons

    My co-workers and myself get a lot of sob stories from our supervisor if we have to call in sick. No one has received a raise in several years. There's really no room for advancement. And the only break we get is a 30-minute lunch break.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving us sob stories when things come up and we have to call in. We know the shifts we were hired to work. We don't need it drilled into us constantly. An additional 10-minute break during the shift would help a lot.

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with, the variety of tasks-handing out samples, cooking, demonstrating, talking to customers, pay 11.25 an hour, co-operative, friendly store staff

    Cons

    On feet for 6-7 hours, can be crazy busy but that makes the time go by faster. Can be cold if you're working in the freezer section.VERY part-time-unless it's the holidays, you might get 3-5 days a month.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring hardworking people with good personalities.

    Pros

    Real simple to run events and you get to meet a lot of people. They offer all the training you need to make sure that any event you run you can run it with confidence.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's really hard to get any hours. You could have three days one week and the next week only have one day. It's very inconsistent, at least where I'm at.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to make sure all of your employees are getting fair hours.
