Extremely flexible schedule (mostly less than what you want or more than you can handle on your own).
Assembly rate is incredibly low and disorganized. Let's do the math: you earn minimum wage if your assembly rate is lower than said minimum wage ($15/hr). A basic grill is gives you about $19. BUT WAIT; that $19 is cut by 60%, so you only get about $7.50 per grill, and forget about making more than one every 30 minutes if EVERYTHING goes right. Do you know what a Double-Play is? A gargantuan grill that takes way to long for the reward. Same for Materbuilts, Nexgrill rotisserie grills, etc. About 50 minutes for $10. You're better off twiddling your thumbs for the hourly pay. Sure, the Home Depot manager may get pissy and tell your real boss, but that only motivates you to work the bare-minimum speed to avoid getting canned. The company can't even be asked to scale the piece rate pay compared to the minimum wage increases. "Min-wage increased by $2? Eh, those idiots won't notice! Keep the piece rate exactly the same!" To top it all off, sometimes the Home Depots just don't have ANYTHING to build, or it's so cluttered that you spend a good chunk of your time moving boxes by hand to your assembly table, or the boxes are covered in bird poop, just slathered in it, or the boxes are chewed up and speckled with poop by rats. Add this with the schorching summer heat while working in the garden section, which feels worse when you're right next to the building doors. Right next to sweet relief, but NOPE gotta build outside, ya loser! THIS IS WHY EVERYONE QUIT! I started working with five guys last year and they're ALL gone. This year, another set got trained and THEY LEFT, TOO! And I'm about to do the same, don't worry.

Flexible schedule was good for life work balance
No support- Very poor management from the top through the local office, micro manage every move

The Company has tons of benefits that they offer. Management is flexible with your schedule and seemed to really care that I had just had my first child.
Only real down fall is you have to be a self starter and very organized if you’re not both of these you won’t be successful.Advantage Solutions Response2y

Flexible work schedule Work at your own pace as long as you get your work done
Most of your communication between managers and team members is through email and conference calls Managers in some stores are difficult to work with and makes it hard to do your job Forced to sell in pallets of product

For me pro's included flexible schedule but that wasn't the case for most.
Low pay. Terrible practices for promoting from within, they would pay a person from out side of the company more for a position than they would to promote from within. The leadership's only goal is to line their own pockets without a care of what happens below them.6

I’ve worked for Advantage Solutions for 5 years and have enjoyed the flexibility of my work schedule.
Starting pay for previous work experience is low but increases over the years have definitely improved along with bonus earning opportunities.1

The managers are flexible in scheduling around you schedule and accommodate unexpected changes when needed. There is growth potential and various opportunities for advancement within the company.
The more seasoned employees are not as friendly and tend to be Agee’s I’ve towards the newer employees. There is a need for more professional development related to collaboration and teamwork.1

It's nice to have a flexible schedule and work un-supervised...I have several merchandising jobs.....doing what I want, when I want....works for me !
Imputing my time is like pulling teeth...the Jet system is so slow....I can never calculate what my paycheck will be or how they determined my piece pay.1
