Hi LorieAZ, I will be working for Advantage and will be doing the Mars candy and Wrigleys gum in the big stores Walmart,Safeway,Fred Meyers etc. Advantage has ALOT of different divisions of merchandisisng. My DM only has WA,OR and ID. I love my DM,she is sooo nice to deal with,very kind! I would apply with them and see what happens. I applied a number of months ago and just got the call several weeks ago for a interview.

Hi Kelly, just got a call from Advantage, did they hire you from a face to face interview or by phone? Not sure what to expect, I am hoping to get on full time with them. What other services do they do other than the candy?

They called first,sent the online papers to fill out and then i went for a face to face interview with the DM of that division i would be working for. She was the one who decided because i would be working for her. Did they say over the phone what you would be doing? and how many hours? I asked when they called, what i would be doing and how many hours a week it would be. They have 1300 clients,so there's alot!

I'm on the dedicated team for Mars candy and Wrigleys gum. I was given the choice when i sent in my papers to HR of either direct deposit or a card that they would add the money to and i could use it like a debit card,only without having to have a bank account. I chose direct deposit because i have a bank account. I'm paid every 2 weeks on friday.

Thanks to every one replied, I work for them under Marketration doing Special Events, if a customer buys three items they receive a nice gift. For Food 4 Less we set up several tents and there's at least 15-20 people working, we'll give out a bag with a few samples, have a game to win nice gifts, or they can buy 3 items and receive a gift. These events are scheduled very 3-4 months.

A few times that they've been scheduled in my area we aren't being scheduled for them. Instead they've sent a crew from L.A. (4 hrs away) and San Diego (2 hrs away) being paid mileage and drive time plus stay in a motel overnight. Most of them are couples working together or as a team.

There's other events that take only two people these are printing 5" x 7" pictures with a frame, or printing a laser key chain if the customer buys three items. I have been the only one scheduled to work these events 3 times only because one of the team members doesn't like comming to this desert town for two days. Every one else in my area hired with this company didn't work the whole year.

I worked for RMX for almost 2 years,then they became ASM. I have worked constantly, not part of the dedicated teams. I keep wondering why I never hear of other positions within the company. I am self-assign and love the company.

Dawn, I also have worked for RMX as an IC and self assign. When I went to asmnet to apply for the dedicated team, it kept telling me that I did not qualify, so I emailed to find out why. I was told that we need permission from our RMX supervisor before we can apply to other teams in the company. Right now, I have plenty of work with them as an IC. You should talk to your supervisor about other opps within the company.
I too got my DD yesterday (Friday)

I made a mistake reporting on Naturalinsight, reported a store under the wrong store. Would anyone have a contact number so I can try and get them to help, so I can correct my error? No...contacting my Super didn't work.

How does one get work with these folks? They have a good insurance policy for part timers. I do believe I read something like that.... they use Cigna Starbridge. I did one job for them but never got anymore?? They went in with RMX so is all of the work on the dashboard at Natural Insights?
