Good reputable company, but poor training and management
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – July 30, 2018
While Advantage Solutions is a very large and successful company, working in their customer service department was not a good experience. I had to teach myself most of the system that we used, and we were given a quiz every day at the end of training, and if you did not do well enough you were cut. The environment is super slow paced and I was constantly looking around for my manager because I wasn't sure if I was in the right place or working on the right thing.

If enjoy talking and engaging people this will be a very fun job. Job tasks are fairly easy with great support from upper management. This company constantly strives to improve its process and work culture.
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Rogers, AR – July 9, 2018
Relaxed, competitive work environment that recently restructured. No onboarding or mentoring program must be a self starter. Workplace culture is laid back but in clicks. hardest part of the job is learning it and the most enjoyable part of the job is working with the clients.

Event Specialist (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – May 15, 2018
The work place culture includes greeting, telling and selling the promoted product. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting people, The hardest part of the job is when customers show lack of interest in promoted products.
Senior IT Analyst (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – May 15, 2018
Advantage Solutions is a very stable international corporation that works with extremely big clients. Strong job security and always room for advancement as long as you're a competent worker. Typically very understanding, family friendly management that won't throw you under the bus or take advantage of you.
The trade off is the pay tends to in the lower tiers of the industry standard for each position, and while advancement is usually an option, they increase in pay is usually very incremental and never substantial. The benefits are also on the more expensive side compared to other corporations. 401K is a plus, but overall the compensation is what could be improved the most.
This is a great company to obtain experience in a clean, professional environment.
Room for growth, well managed, great culture
Pay tends to be on lower spectrum of industry standards
A typical Day at work is average, no problem with work ethics..I've learned a great deal about working in a different environment. "NOT ENOUGH HOURS".. However, completing the job, and satisfying the client was the exciting part!
Event Specialist (Current Employee) – Columbus, GA – May 11, 2018
A very slow paced work day. Learned to improve time management and social skill with customers. The management was professional and works to resolve any work related issues of employees. There was some workplace culture. Holiday crowds would be the only difficulty for the position. Good conversations with customers and making sales wee among the most enjoyable moments with Advantage Solutions
Slow paced, opprtunities to improve management and customer serivce skill.
Rude holiday crowds and little room to advance within the company.
Event Specialist (Former Employee) – Wichita Falls, TX – May 10, 2018
Was an event specialist in Sam's club (can be at different locations like Walmart). Typical day at work involved setting up samples for customers to try the products. Management was not really involved. Worked with a great group of ladies. Enjoyable part of the job was the involvement with the customers.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 10, 2018
Essentially, I would show up to my location, whether it be Sam's Club or Best Buy, and make sure all of my Epson displays were up to par. I would spend the day making sure that customers with questions were attended to, and I would make sure that on days that I wasn't there, the in store associates were equipped to sell Epson products.
