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

Pros

Outstanding team of Event Specialists.

Cons

Management in Hawaii needs to be replaced. Always being dealt negative comments, yelled at, scolded and in general made to feel worthless and stupid. I awakened one morning and knew I could not work another day with this style of management. The Event Specialists check with one another to see what the District Manager's temperament is that day. What a shame because the team is great! Also, when hired, I was told I would be working 2 to 3 days a week. I worked 1 day a week most weeks.

Advice to Management

Inquire with former employees as to why they quit. I think all will indicate "management".

    Pros

    very good online training program, you get to travel, get treated for lunch when your boss is in town, one of the best companies i have worked with, supervisor could have been better although he wasnt bad.

    Cons

    nothing against the company but the supervisor showed favoritism to other employees, expected me to do other jobs without telling me i was required to @ the interview ( i was on a dedicated team, as well as one other employee. they were not expected to do jobs on their holidays scheduled off team but i was even though i said i can only do the team @ my interview)

    - Flexibility

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that everyone is on the same page when handling selling programs and promotions. Too many times we get conflicting directions from upper management.
