Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Not having to report to an office everyday is the reason I stay with ASM. Also, the benefit of vacation and holiday time that ASM offers cannot be matched by any other food broker.

Cons

Lack of promotion availabilities', lack of a car allowance and a gas amount that actually covers the use of your personal auto

Advice to Management

Look at your retail reps and remember that we are the face of ASM!

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of outgoing and friendly people, and the sales roles allow for flexible schedules. Most associates are great team players and willing to assist on projects, answer questions and provide insight.

    Cons

    It seems like the vast majority of associates are spread too thin and not being fairly compensated for everything on their plates. Most people have a single title but are really doing the jobs of three or more.

    Advice to Management

    As mergers and acquisitions continue to happen, it would be nice to hire more employees on as new companies are becoming integrated. New business shouldn't automatically mean more work with no additional compensation for all of the existing employees.

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

    Pros

    Consistent hours and territory; learn as you go; interesting team members. The company was awarded a large contract & will have lots of positions starting this fall.

    Cons

    The overall process was disorganized - training website either down or unable to load; pay for training specified but not compensated for all the down time caused when the website kicks you out or doesn't record test results, etc. Virtually no on-site training from an ASM employee making it difficult to understand time reporting that affects pay.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is vital to keeping good employees - merchandisers are generally self-regulated but need some guidance as to website quirks & other company specific tools. Don't rely on your help desk to fix everything - be more engaged with the process.
