I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible, good for a second job to fill in hours with your other and better job that's to say that you have one.

Cons

No raises, no promotions, crappy attitude from employees, no recognition, don't expect this to be a career cause you could probably have a better time working at McDonalds. You gotta buy your own supplies (pens, pencils, tape measures, etc.) This job will wear out your knees if you dont have knee pads which the company wont provide.

Advice to Management

Money grubbers lining the pockets of higher ups. Merchandisers do all the hard work and get paid moot. Something really wrong with a company when it ignores their employees.

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

    Pros

    I have no "Pros" to share for working for ASM based on my experience.

    Cons

    * No investment into employees: training, career advancement, etc.
    * Pay for work expected is extremely unbalanced for Retail Sales Merchandiser and Retail Sales Manager
    * ASM is more interested in clients needs and wants then its own employees
    * High Turn Over

    Advice to Management

    If you want quality employees that produce quality work for a career track, invest in your employees training, pay, and benefits.

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

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you have other income. One cannot survive on the few days you may get. December and January was deplorable. Only total of 9 days for both months combined. Lucky if you get 1 or 2 days a week....not the hours one is lead to believe when first hired. DSM's are excellent, but bet they have a hectic job trying to be fair by distribution of assignments. Pay is okay, but if you are sent to other stores don't expect any compensation. Travel is calculated at 40 plus miles and 1 hour plus time.

    Cons

    Problem is they hire too many extras/floaters and not enough events to go around. Company seems to have great expectations and hires more than is needed. Soon the work fizzles and you may not get work for days on end. I would not recommend this job to any person unless you are looking for a hobby for a days work here and there. Was good in beginning, but as time went on they hired more people and work becomes slim.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and lose the ones at top that have such low approval rating. Must be some mature candidates out there who can do better.
