    Pros

    Great people doing difficult jobs without enough tools. Beautiful work environment and an excellent café with a professionally friendly staff.

    Cons

    Salary for most all jobs are well below the minimum of industry. No job security because the once private company is run by an investment company. Company is in the 1st year of a three year plan - 'It's the belt tightening of the budget year', so lay-offs should continue early into 2016. Stay nervous about your position because no one is really safe unless you are Steve Schuckenbrock or on the board of directors with their platinum parachute. The rest get a kick in the pants as the leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the lay-offs to ensure that the culture that you said you valued is completely destroyed and beyond repair

    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time

    Pros

    I loved my job till Friday. I was making money, working the hours that I wanted, and feeling like I had a purpose in life. I thought about, and asked for a supervisory position as well as a mentoring job. The company posted jobs that were available, so I knew there was a possiblity of advancements. NOT

    Cons

    My area was cut by 2/3's. In the division that I work, if you don't drive you don't make any money. I was volunteering to work areas that were not covered for whatever reason. Management could not stand it and has now taken stores away and limited my miles. When I was hired, I was limited 39 hours not 40 miles.

    Advice to Management

    People go to work to make money. I was taught that hard work and dedication would pay off. Not with this company. When other fortune 500 companies are helping their employees get ahead and make money, this one does not. Management makes all the money, but the people who do the actural work have limits set. I asked for a simple mentor job weeks ago and have heard nothing, but of course that is before the milage estoppel was hired. Can you believe that, they hired someone to police how much money we make. I heard about other employees losing stores and milage, I guess Friday my name was drawn. There is no career opportunities and seniors go ahead and get in the food stamp line. If Steve Schuckenbrock implemented this milage thing or hired the police woman he is sorry. You should be able to make as much money as you can.

    Pros

    Flexible hours for the most part.

    Cons

    The new system implemented is not cost effective or stable. The work drops down random. You will get work at the last minute and be expected to do it. Often it is under an hours worth of work and they want you to drop everything and drive 30 miles. Communication with managers is non existent. The do not care. You are just a body. I met a rep who has 9 years with Crossmark and never met supervisor. If you request time off in advance they won't move your work. You have no set stores and never know what to expect. If you negotiate pay shoot high. No raises ever!!!! I have 20 years of experience and I can't believe the lack of professionalism. Alot of reps are focusing on leaving. Bosses do not communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Check out manager before hiring. Stop moving stores around. People like seeing the same rep.

    Pros

    Flexible time schedule, get to work with others sometimes

    Cons

    No raises, can be long hours

    Advice to Management

    Learn to hold on to your best employees. What is the point of getting people to work well if they leave at the first chance.

    Decreased hours and no raises

    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Happily engage customers with various products. Able to be creative. Helping in creating more sales for the store. Making customers smile and happy to be shopping. Respect from store managers and coworkers.

    Cons

    You can be a positive, knowledgeable, hard working employee and work next co workers that are just there to collect a check. No evaluations. No pay raises. New employees make more money then employees that have dedicated years and are more skilled and experienced. No incentives, high turn over. Lazy supervisors that spend the day sitting on the phone while leads do all the running, organizing, and assisting.

    Advice to Management

    I have never worked for a company that has no structure for pay raises. How do you expect the best of the best to continue to work for your company. Leads should get at least $1 more an hr. then the highest paying E.S. Supervisors need to have there priorities strait and be available for the staffs needs and not be sitting on the phone all day, coming in late, leaving early. It's a crying shame and unhealthy for moral. Give raises and more hours to the deserving.

    Pros

    There are no pros to this demeaning job and company.

    Cons

    Violates labor laws, no incentive to keep valued employees. Drunks, thieves and liars are hired and treated better than superior long term employees as- the ONLY goal is to have a demo completed( at least on paper). Pay is poor, management are also liars and stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize valued employees, give them incentive to stay, pay increases in line with other industry standards, or just pay increase. Fire the weird and useless area managers.
