Has anyone worked for this company at convenient stores? If so, how is it? I had a phone interview and was told I would hear from the hiring manager as they need to get someone in place. It's been over a week and I have not heard from anyone.

GaleLM, please send me an email so I can reply privately. I have also had a phone interview with a confirmation that a district manager would be contacting me. I even sent in the release forms to them. I have hear nothing only to see that they have reposted the position.

Nancy,
Try to find a phone number for them or send an email with your resume and telling them you've applied and are still very interested. I sent my resume to jobhotline@marketration.com.

I finally got one it's on Wednesday at 10 am. It will be with Campaigners. This is the screening interview. I'm hopeful since I have 5 1/2 years experience in demos. thanks for the reply.

I just received a call from Advantage Sales and Marketing. they are looking for demonstrators to work in Walmarts on their dedicated teams. She was calling for my area, but she says they have openings all over the country. She gave me permission to post a number and website. For all the details

I really did something dumb this evening. I filled out an
application for a demo position with Advantage Sales And
Marketing back in December. They sent me a link where I
could check for jobs in my area.This link opened up to my company profile. Then I clicked continue to check for jobs. There were
no jobs listed. So what did stupid me do,but click on delete
at the top of the page. It was too late before I realized what
I had done. I thought that I could go to trash and retrieve
it. It's not there!!! What do I do now? I'm kicking myself
big time!!!!

Can anyone give me an insight about this company?

I have been offered a position based on the MVR thing which is no prob.

What can I expect for Mileage, admin time, Drive pay etc...

Do they still do per-diem on the car, and do I get that at the end of the month? How does it work?

Also how long does it take once my app and other info is sent in to Anaheim does the woman that hired me get it back? I was hired by the IMW district manager at her offices.

Any info would be appreciated!

Are you sure ASM doesn't simply stand for Advantage Sales and Marketing? =)

Camille,

They wanted to hire me for Full time, but with me being a Dannon rep, I asked about a part-time position.

They hired me for the part time position. I will start tomorrow. As far as I know I will be Merch'ing Gatorade at Supermarkets and C-stores. I think I have something like 200 or so stores. Seems like a fun job!.

As far as stores, There will be Supervalu(Albertsons), 7-11's, Mavricks, Chevron's, and alot of Associated Foods stores(Medium sized supermarkets)

Does anyone know about that daily Stipened amount for fuel? I got a rate, I just don't know how it works. So for me it's 12.00 a day. So thats my gas for the day correct? That IS the mileage pay?

How does their drive time work?

I know I don't get paid from my house to the first store, but from the first store to the second etc, and then from the last store to my house do I get paid?

Any info?
