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

    Pros

    get to work great people, customers can be fun. It is fun to talk about products and make sales. Also get to see a lot of great and new products. Fellow employees are great and customers although at times can get a rude customer, mostly very nice people. Can have a good time. Very few hrs. and no raises.

    Cons

    Club Supervisior, unprofessional, rude and disrespectfull. Screams and yells all the time, creates hostile work environment. Upper Management does not care, allows this. Management should do a better job in choosing Club Supervisior, also should listen to employees abot complains. HR department is useless.

    Advice to Management

    Train your Club Supervisiors to treat employees with respect, should be no yelling or screaming.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting Clients with great products. Wonderful support from other sales reps (part time "support" from management). Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    •once a great company to work for before getting so big. The bigger the company grew during the last 25 years the more impersonal and greedy they became.

    •legitimate profits not enough for those at the top...they feel it necessary to also make money off the backs of employees by cutting benefits (car program for example) and giving either no raises to already underpaid employees or raises so low that after taxes paychecks are actually lower than before.

    •job expectations grow…stress grows...no one cares. Every level of employee is just trying to survive. Results from good intentions from management rarely are permanent.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and stop stepping on good employees with your greed. Reverse policy that says if you leave the company for any reason the company gets to take any spiff or bonus money you earned while employed (and is already paid by the client). I cant help but wonder who pocketed the $2000 I had coming when I retired.
