    I worked at Advantage Solutions part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekend employment, decent salary for individuals attending college or university. Work for 12-5pm Sat & Sunday.

    Cons

    If unable to work management requested details as to the reason why, encourages individual to still work when ill etc

    Advice to Management

    Its a part time job, not full time, individuals get sick and are sometimes unavailable due to unforeseen reasons, one should not be encouraged or told to work through being ill for the sake of the company.

    Pros

    They largely leave you alone to do the job, don't micromanage. You are mostly free to structure your day more logically, as long as you get the work done, they keep quiet, thank god. What meagre pay there is, is on time. HQ staff appear to be competent.

    Cons

    The clients we represent must have got the contract because ASM must have pitched the lowest possible tender bid to get reps. 24 hours a week at a pay rate only a dollar 50 above what it was in 2006 (when it was a good wage) means you barely cover your living costs, food, rent/mortgage and you just 'exist'. PT Asm gigs are just a stepping stone to something better. Depending on client, your client regional... manager can have quite unrealistic wants, obviously pushed onto him from dumb client HQ top brass. It's impossible on a part time week basis. ASM gives no benefits, no gas card, no RRSP - they don't cover sales rep insurance on your car. Just a km allowance that doesnt even cover gas and repairs. Pay is so bad there IS no life in your work/life balance, becuase on your day off you can't afford to HAVE a life. Forget vacations, fancy food, decent amounts of groceries. If you work for ASM part time, better start liking rice n beans, unless you work at the cushy ASM head office in the centre of the universe, AKA Toronto.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more full time jobs, don't be so stingy with hourly pay, what you pay was good.....BACK IN 2006. The dollar has inflated away 34% since then. Just to keep up, your wages offered should be at least $22ph. If every marketing agency does it, you, Match, Mosaic etc, vendors won't have a choice but to actually shell out more for a contract.
