Where they generally starts at 8 AM day is over store calls are done. What I’ve learned, MARS/Wrigley plethora of different of candies they produce. Current manager is pretty much a micro manager not the best personal relationship skills. Culture, seems to be pretty normal and treated fairly. Hardest part, is beating managers expectations of getting candy product to the sales floor. The most enjoyable part of the workday is building Customer relations with store management.
Manage whole work schedule and routing .
Benefits are expensive with low coverage, micromanaging.
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
Retail Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 28, 2018
working for advantage solutions allowed me to learn and grow within the company. i was allowed the freedom and flexibility to do my job efficiently.
a typical day at work would include resets to various departments, for example, cosmetics were very frequent. I had an amazing manager while working for advantage and the work culture was always welcoming. the hardest part of my job while working for advantage was the lack of upward mobility. while i enjoy merchandising very much i find it difficult at times to speak with upper management about promotions.
upward mobility and/or promotions from within the company

Business Analyst Inside BJ's Corporate HQ (Current Employee) – Westborough, MA – November 27, 2018
I worked in an open environment. There was plenty of opportunity to contribute to the team efforts. Management was open to hearing about challenges and addressed them as necessary. They cared about your work life and your home life. The hardest part of the job was balancing what the different levels of the client were looking for. It wasn't usually aligned and so required changing focus from time to time. The best part of the job was the team and how they worked together to help one another when needed. I learned that everyone is different and therefore have different strengths and weaknesses.
Clients upper management was available and open to discuss goals.
Client management wasn't always on the same page with each other.

A typical day at work is calling on Lowe's stores and performing an audit on the Rubbermaid products. Learned the whole product line of Rubbermaid products. Management skills consisted of working with the in house merchandisers and managing my time skills. Workplace culture was very pleasant. The hardest part of the job was building the Rubbermaid sheds in the blistering sun. The most enjoyable part of the job was allowing me to scheduling my time and was not micro-managed.

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.
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.
