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

Pros

For part-time, unskilled labor, this Demo job was fairly easy and paid pretty well. I liked that I never had to work for longer than 6.5 hours from late morning, and that I got a guaranteed 30 -minute break with two 10-minute breaks. The customers could be annoying sometimes, but generally they were manageable. The coworkers were pretty nice too.

Cons

The local manager was just too much. Plus, the job is very weekend intensive; expect to work every Saturday in addition to a Friday or Sunday every week (sometimes Friday, Saturday, and Sunday).

Advice to Management

Try to calm down and stop sweating the workers; oftentimes these products sell themselves. At other times, a happy worker can sell these products; but if the workers are not happy, then they won't sell as well.

    Pros

    Independence, working with people, Travel.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity, If you aren't on a good customer team, ie, chain stores, dealing with the gas stations and mom and pop stores are frustrating. If you don't have a garage, the amount of samples you have to store at home can be ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    The stores we were sent to needed to be vetted.
