Pros

The hours aren't long, and you get to learn new techniques and try new things, the variety of demonstrations is a nice change of pace, not a routine job, everyday is a new product.

Cons

Customers never stop complaining. The stores you work within, sometimes the staff is unfriendly and unwilling to help out. They waste a lot of unused products.

Advice to Management

Don't believe everything you hear.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only true meaning of "Advantage" with this company, is that they'll take "Advantage" of you!! Constant layoff's and re-hires. Upper management can't get their act together. 4 layoffs in 2 years, and to add insult to injury, they then DENY your unemployment claim, saying you quit! They hate their front line employees, blame everything on them, when in truth they hire inept upper managers. Don't get on this merry-go-round to nowhere unless you're looking to get the life sucked out of you, only to then pay for someone else's mistakes by losing your job.

    Cons

    It's all cons if you value yourself and your work ethics

    Advice to Management

    Fire all upper management and start over.

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

    Pros

    somewhat flexible hours, able to work independently, easy work, no heavy lifting

    Cons

    very unpredictable hours, impossible to get very many hours unless you are willing to lie about how long things take, many assignments take only minutes to complete, if you don't use a smart phone you waste lots of paper and toner printing assignment sheets and instructions, no training at all!!

    Advice to Management

    be more upfront with potential employees about how irregular the hours will be and how long the assignments will take, spend at least a little time actually training new employees so they know what you expect
