Management should work with their team in correcting issues with upper management. Complete disconnect. Training needs a overhaul. Take time with your people vs. crossing fingers for their success

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

    Pros

    Meeting people, the kids that get excited to see me so they can get samples, my regular customers. the store employees.

    Cons

    Working every weekend, co-workers that will leave cart and don't work, Management that doesn't care if certain employees don't do their job because they are willing to travel, Incentives that aren't awarded, NO raises This company has consistently gone down hill since I've worked for them.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ESM's that don't do their job AND the DSM's that know about it and don't care because they are getting the event "executed"

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

    Pros

    Flexible and interesting work. Do not do the same thing day in and day out. Meet different customers.

    Cons

    They have you get a store stamp & management signature on every call. Sometimes I spend more time standing in line to get a store stamp than actually doing the project. I am getting paid, but too much time gets wasted looking for managers to sign etc. No printing reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your pool of merchandisers and figure out where there talent would work best. Pay the ones with more experience better.
