OK so AMS said they would call me back the same day or the following day. They never did. This is not the first time a company has called me and told me they are interested in hiring me, saying that they will call back in a few days or weeks and I never hear from them again. Yes, I could make a follow up phone call but I get a funny feeling about the company as a whole if they can't even follow up with the first thing they say they are going to do. I don't get my hopes up anymore when a company calls me for work. I read on here about people having jobs with so many companies. I'm just trying to get 1 or 2 more jobs.

Today, for instance, I was originally going to do some of my out-of-town stores. But, an appointment came up that I needed to make so I rearranged the week. I also did my first store today, went to my appt, and then did the rest of my route.



Melissa did the reshuffling of territories affect you? I lost two far stores and picked up three new stores all much closer to me. Also were you part of the WM calls change from 4 to 2 in the Supercenters?

Camille, I'm not with Advantage any more. I work for Driveline now. I never had any Wal-Marts, though. Good for you for dropping the far-off stores.

I think this is the company my wife applied with. You know how it goes: you have a busy merchandising day and don't check your voice till the end of the day and there was a message. She called the back the next day but didn't have the lady's extension and asked for her first and last name. The woman seemed a little shall we say abrupt that my wife didn't have the extension but she did leave a voice mail message. When two days went by she called again and never got a return phone call. I know companies are busy but sometimes I think that if you not sitting right by the phone for them to call you don't get a call back. I am sure I am just paranoid though.

I think the way the do it is when they start interviewing, they have a list in front of them for potential candidates. I was one of several interviewed for my position. They may have just gone down the list to whoever was next, which is why sometimes people don't get callbacks.

My wife was really interested but you know how that goes. You are right. You miss a call and then they go down the list to the next person.

I have been down today because of the flu and I received a phone call from Advantages Sales and Marketing telling me to go the website. They are looking for people. On the website I see so much different information - marketration, campaigners, etc. Has anyone else received a phone call - automated - no person who you talk to/ just curious.

When I checked my answering machine I had a call from them today, too. They were looking for demonstrators. Said someone had given them my name.

I applied with this company a few days ago and now have an interview set for this Monday. It is for store that I have been to quite a bit for demos for other companies, its about 25 miles away. But the store that I live 5 minutes away from is where I would rather be. LOL. It is not listed with either this company of Crossmark .Should I ask about "my" store during interview?

Thanks

Kelly, I did ask about other stores in my area, and I was told they weren't scheduling or any of the others. So far they only received a contract with Wal Mart for this one store I'm scheduled for. I also mentioned that when Wal Mart did the same thing last year with Crossmark and Campaigners, the demos didn't go so well and our local Wal Mart hardly had any jobs. They told me Advantage Sales and Marketing is a sister company to Campaigners, so I told them I hoped thing go well this time, and I was excited about working with them.

The answer is YES do ask, and ask again in March 2009 because 500 more stores will be added to their list of stores. My distance in stores is about the same as yours and I have drive to the farther store too.

Crossmark also advertised their demos for Thur., Fri., Sat. and Sun. for $11 hr. I was told from Advantage Sales and Marketing their demos are for Sat. and Sun. only for $10 hr.

For Advantage Sales and Marketing... I applied at marketration.com, after you fill in the application it has a section to paste you resume. You'll be emailed a packet of forms to fax back (if your application is approved) it said I had 48 hrs to get them faxed back. Then after you fax all these forms and they're approved you'll be sent a package from Fed Exp to take a drug test, it also said I had 48 hrs to get that done. After you past that you should be receiving you calls.

Had my phone interview this morning, and I did ask about my local store and it will be on their list later to hire for. I am glad I asked. I hate phone interviews but I think I did ok.It is always the situation questions that I hate and makes me nervous.
