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

Pros

Make your own hours. Competitive pay. My supervisors have been awesome. If you like to travel this is the job for you, mostly short commutes. Entering work on computer is pretty basic.

Cons

Not alot of raises. I really dont have any other cons.

Advice to Management

training is always important and needed.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to gain experience in the industry of outsourced marketing projects

    Cons

    Generally low pay scale for non C-level employees. Continual changes, upheaval and shifting marketing agendas. Unrealistic marketing and time budgets to achieve target objectives. Uneven program roll-outs create a lack of continuity and uncertainty about upper management's ability to provide a stable and reliable course of action for the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and stop treating employees as disposable commodities.

    Terrible communication with 99% of upper mang.
    Rasises are unheard of.
    You Must use your own vehicle. 500 miles a week (retail Sales Rep.)
    Mieage reimbursment is $.21 lower than gov. allows which is $.55
    U are Lied to about bonus programs and Sales #'s so you never get the bonus money promised.(unless u cheat and people do,Supervisors included.)
    Advertise higher paying job pay rates than what they actually pay.
    If u have a possition that requires overnight travel(Retail Reset Mechandisers for example) The prefered hotel is Motel 6 or a similar brand as your options very limited in hotel choice.
    You are out of town for weeks and months at a time and only home on the weekends.(Retail Reset Merchandisers for example)
    The allowed expense money while you are on the road comes out of your pocket and you are later reimburst (2-5wks) and its only enough $ to cover one Healthy meal a day.
    You must use your own cell phone.
    You must use your own computer.
    You must buy your own office supplies.
    The company is run off the internet primarily,once hired you rarely see your supervisor if at all.
    In most areas there is not a local office.
    Supervisors typically live hours away and in other states.
    Hours are very sparadic and inconsistent (part time postions)
    Company is not very forthcoming with true job details until hired and then they change from week to week.

    Advice to Management

    The people in the field are your first line of contact with clients. If you treat them poorly consistently it will show in many forms and eventually be the ruin of the compnay. Advantage already has a bad reputation with retailers and its getting worse daily. Take care of your people!
