I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time

Pros

Time off is generous, great work/family balance.

Cons

Hands on training is lacking because everyone is so busy.

Advice to Management

Dart training is great for basics but you need to put new people with others to do hands on training. Dart is good for reference.

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions part-time

    Pros

    Clean, friendly environment, get to interact with many different people, Greet, tell and sell products.

    Cons

    Over hire Event Specialists, which reduces hours of the top sales people. Do not give raises to Event Specialists who contributes the bulk of their profits.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at contracts when agreeing to number of ES you must hire. Have a budget so your hard working ES get raises each year. At least COLA

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

    Pros

    You're not directly supervised. Don't expect too much from this company.

    Cons

    I was told I would be having 20-25 hours per week, I only had one 4-day week, and that was during the holidays. When I was a new employee I had 3-day weeks every week for about a month. Now I'm lucky if I get even 1 day. Too many people were hired so no one has enough work. My manager manages over 200 people. This is ridiculous. I spend more money on gas traveling to stores than anything else. If you're going to have me drive 15 miles away, then pay for compensation. The pay is low for the amount of hours when I do have work. The first opportunity I get to get out, I'm taking it.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring so many people.
