    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay, excellent benefits and a positive work environment. I have an excellent supervisor, and his boss is a very nice man as well - both have super positive attitudes and offer help and training when needed

    Cons

    As an RSM, driving about 400 miles a week or so is normal. Not for you if you do not like being on the road or if your car is unreliable

    Pros

    Ability to manage your schedule. I work for a startup and I don't accept assignments when I am busy.

    Cons

    Low pay. I did this job for seven up in college and made $6/hr. This job job should pay at least $20/hr. Substandard IT systems. Cut admin wage to 10 from 11 because of San Jose minimum wage increase for drvie time from 8 to 10 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Increase hourly salaries to 15/hr. I am applying at competitors that pay that much

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

    Pros

    Working independently, meeting people, representing quality brands.

    Cons

    Low salary, too much work to do in too short a time. Continual pressure to create promotions in groceries. Ridiculous pressure. Other Merchandisers submit false info to stay abreast. It's all about meeting quotas, real or false.

    Advice to Management

    Trying working a RSM job for a day or two. Both client and ASM management far too hands off with unrealistic expectations.
