    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working independently, meeting people, representing quality brands.

    Cons

    Low salary, too much work to do in too short a time. Continual pressure to create promotions in groceries. Ridiculous pressure. Other Merchandisers submit false info to stay abreast. It's all about meeting quotas, real or false.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying working a RSM job for a day or two. Both client and ASM management far too hands off with unrealistic expectations.

    1.Every company has its politics.

    3.Bonuses,I'm glad I get a hourly pay.Because I have not seen any Bonus money yet!!!
    4.I feel that when I put the car in reverse in my driveway till the time I put it back in Park in my driveway we should get paid for the start of day and end of day and mileage.My vehicle is my OFFICE.We carry a device that has a GPS in it.BIG BROTHER is watching me all the time,which doesn't bother me cause I do my job.But you do the math.
