Hi Millie,
I'm down in Grand Rapids. It's been mostly Target IRC work and audits in Sams Club.

Shel,
Do you do demo audits in Sam's Club? Don't they also schedule demos in Sam's Club? Thanks.

That is cool, IRC too for Target, but up here we only have one Target;(..and no Sam's Clubs, store up here are very limited, We have Walmarts, Kmarts, any big name store are in Marquette, not much else. Anyone up here who are a merchandiser, you travel a lot because the stores are so far apart, the winter driving is very scarely too. You just,hope the day that you schedule to can go, if your lucky, Houghton, Munising, Marquette or any city far north can get very tricky in the winter. Living up here you have to deal with winters, or move, but I know that isn't going happen. Just the last winter in Houghton they got over 300 inches of snow, Munising got the same. Oh, well this is Upper Peninsula Mich for ya. I know where Grand Rapids are beautiful area.

Hi Everyone,
Can anyone please tell me how to get hired with Advantage Project Merchandising? I am all signed up and I checked off many towns around me to work in- but nothing ever happens. Do you think it might be that they have too many people working the area (southwest suburbs Chicago)? I have signed up with so many of these companies and I'm getting nowhere. I did have people from two other companies call me and leave messages but when I return the call they aren't there and I leave a message or two and they never, ever call again. It's getting frustrating. I so need to find a job.
Thanks for any help,
Ann

There has been a turnover this year at the DM position. I think I am with my 4th DM this year alone but I have no idea who that DM is. I would apply at several companies. I know Mosaic has quite a few openings as they are busy. Good Luck.

Has anyone been able to get Advantage/silverlight to load on a blackberry phone? I'd love to be able to check for jobs while on the job. Let me know if you have and any tips if applicable. Thanks.

No...I also have a Blackberry and can't get it downloaded either. It's so frustrating because I used to check for jobs all the time while away from home but can't do it anymore. Wonder how we can resolve this problem??!! Any suggestions anyone?

I was having a problem getting SL to load on my computer and Advantage sent me on directly to Microsoft. He took control of my computer and finally got it to load. I don't have the number anymore but I'm sure support at Advantage can help. If I remember right the phone number was in one of the first JET emails.

Any ideas how I can get started with Advantage project merchandising? I have completed all the info on their website. I have experience, I'm flexible and very willing to do any job they need.

I just wish some work would show to check on. The only things that I see offered are anywhere from 2 to 4 hours oneway from me. I haven't had more than 6 project since mid May.

Same thing with me. Up until May of this year, I had so much work that I was scheduling as much as they would allow. Most weeks I had 15-20 hours. Then in May, my DM retired and at that time the work began to fall off (not sure if that had anything to do with anything). Once the new jet system was up, I received ZIP, I emailed my DM and she had them move me geographically closer to my town center (whatever that means) after that I began receiving a few jobs here, but mostly 30 miles away or more. Now I get nothing, yet I see ads for my town and several small towns close by.
I also know several people who have applied for work for this area back in april when I had too much work. They all have experience with great references and never got a call or any contact, so I don't know what is going on with Advantage...maybe they are trying to phase out the project teams.

With the new JET system do we have to fax in every page, or just page one of a call form that has store stamp and signature?
Thanks,

Terri

Yes to: fax in every page,(the one that sign and store stamped) or just page one of a call form that has store stamp and signature? The faxing your sign and stamp have go in..they are your contracts..I was email that all project contracts has to be faxed in order to make sure that the project has been done; Advantage does check. Fax after you have reported the work online, then fax. Work for me has been picking up, my month is almost full,,,so looking forward, it has been so slow:)

ASM are holding a job fair at the local job group I belong to. I have a background in retail and might be a good fit for ASM (have had a few calls recently via Monster and NAMRS from other companies for similar). They are looking for merchandisers and the "ad" says even part time openings recieve medical benefits. Is that right? If so that has to be rare in this field especially part time

Thanks

Yesterday I interviewed for an Event Specialist position with this company and wanted to know what happens next and in what time frame. He just told me who would be contacting me, but no particulars.

Thx

Thanks,



Only once I had more then 1 page call report and I faxed all pages. Today I noticed at the bottom of a call report it states, "NO NEED TO FAX SECOND SHEET OF THIS CALL REPORT".

I had 3 full days of work disappear today, Oct. 29-31. I have had projects canceled before but always received a e-mail before it disappeared from my board. No e-mail...just gone. Did this happen to anyone else?
