    I worked at CROSSMARK part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was more than minimum wage. You can sedual your own hours on your own time you've just got to be sure to get all your stores done by the end of the week.

    Cons

    I would drive fifty miles away from my home. And this company does not pay you to your first store or home from your last store. Considering I had a run starting 50 miles away and three stores close to one another and then fifty miles home. That's two hours fourty dollars in Gas 100 miles a week I would not be paid for.
    During the summer they would give me anywhere between an hour fifteen min in the store. And in the winter they would give you fourty five min in eatch store. And that was only every other week.
    I killed my car for this job. Sometimes I worked more hours than I got payed for. Went threw four supervisors in one year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is, when your looking for someone to Supervise a team it's better to premote a person who has been working on that field for at least six months. Training your last supervisor on the ins and outs was not what I was getting payed for.

    I worked at CROSSMARK as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is good for what the job entails. The jobs are not difficult and don't require a lot of effort.

    Cons

    I had 2 different opportunities with Crossmark. The first position duration was extended, then cut. The second position showed an outright lack of communication, leadership and professionalism. Hours were cancelled at the last minute and management acted like we were at fault, including accusative and borderline abusive texts. Upon speaking to project managers, it was revealed that in store managers favor some employees over others and it was not an isolated incident. It then took 4 weeks and multiple phone calls to receive payment for any hours worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of professionalism and the sense that no one cares about doing their job at the management level will result in the same attitude and worse at the employee level.

    Pros

    hours and location. Great if your in school and it's a part time job.

    Cons

    Sups who don't have a clue about customer service and down right nasty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit asking the world from the hourly employee. It's a demo job...Not trying to push the customer into buying every little thing you demo.

    Pros

    Fun doing demonstrations
    Find out about new products
    Test toys
    Love interacting with customers

    Cons

    Horrible employees for the most part
    Not consistent with company information or policies.
    Upper management I dealt with on regular basis doing the bare minimum.
    Very little interaction with management.
    No professional courtesy to speak of.
    Two leads I dealt with were bullies more concerned with trying to control others than being effective in their jobs.

    I worked at CROSSMARK full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    well if your looking for a company that gives you freedom to be a manager, this is it.
    you get your own computer, credit card, and the people you work with on the phone are very helpful and nice.
    you work in an open place.

    Cons

    maybe work 7 days on salary, pressure, the company waits until something is wrong, then they train!!!
    training is bad, but u get support sometimes, its a dog eats dog.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stand your ground, ask for what your want period.

    I worked at CROSSMARK part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and fairly good reporting system. Pays for printing and some travel.

    Cons

    Hours cut constantly
    Big projects rolled out in a very haphazard way so you have to go back and do the job twice.
    Bad communication with their clients.
    Loss of big clients so your work load is always decreasing.
    Company hires for peak production ( happens twice a year) and then tries to divide the work for the rest of the year between too many employees.
    Supervisor is not available and not helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more management so you can do a better job and not loose clients. Care about the employees and their well being. Hire employees who care about your company.

    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Less than (2) weeks in, working alone, unsupervised, great people in the retail word to work along side with.

    Cons

    I have had Z E R O format training- some aspects of the job are not covered in training - My 20 something supervisor expects immediate replies on txt/email. I have over 30 stores - 50% must be visited twice a month. Recruiting said I may have to configure some electronics a couple of times a week; the scope of work was not anything like what is expected of me in the field. Sales Trak is a joke; redundant; goes down constantly; not real time;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training program needs to be revamped-
