    Pros

    Flexible scheduling within company parameters. Variety of tasks, not repetitive or boring. You get to work in several different outlets and meet many different people.

    Cons

    Must be willing to work any time ( i.e. days, nights, weekends and holidays during peak seasons). Sometimes contradictory information given. You must be extremely organized.

    I worked at CROSSMARK part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with this company. Hours were good and days were what I wanted. I had great hours, pay and only 3 supervisors that cared enough to call, or check up on me and the others on my team. I miss working with them.

    Cons

    Had one Supervisor that was unfair when I got injured. She didn't believe me and I ended up having to have surgery. When I tried to go back to work, she said I quit and hung up on me without trying to find out what happened, EVEN after I told her I kept in contact with Corporate. I had to find another job elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should check on their field supervisors actions and follow up on their employees that had job related injuries/surgeries. Some of the field supervisors don't care about the employees that ARE working hard and doing their jobs. They are only interested in hanging out in Starbucks and only checking in on workers once every 3 months.

    I love this type of work, and my immediate supervisor is awesome, however the company itself is gotten too big to care.

    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love being able to be super flexible with my scheduling, and the mileage and drive time reimbursements are decent compared to many other similar companies. My immediate supervisor does everything he can to get me as much or as little work as I want. If you are just looking for something to do part time this is the perfect job.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are that no one can get a raise, even if your supervisor thinks you should get one. They don't do any type of employee reviews. For having so many employees, many times projects are very chaotic and don't seem to put together as well as they could have been. The more flexible you are, meaning being able to be called Monday morning to go to another state 10 hours away if you leave immediately, the more opportunities are available. If you need a steady paycheck this isn't the company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management: Get out of the office more and see what actually happens in the store day to day, stop just relying on a computer programs. You really need to read all these reviews and take some action, if you want your employees to have any kind of dedication to this specific company, then you need to hear them. Communication between all levels of management and your employees desperately needs to improve. Employees just want to feel that the company does actual care and does try to listen to the ideas of those who are actually doing this work. When you have the majority of your employees having absolutely no real loyalty to your company they aren't able to give each project 100%. This company could be so much greater by taking just a few tips from those of us who feel you are viewing us as easily replaceable. Your training also leaves much to be desired, I have ran into at least 10 new employees just this year who had a million questions because I have been the first co worker they have met in the 3 months since they have been hired. The company has the potential, management just needs to find it, and you can find it in your employees!

    Pros

    Hours were very consistent. Got to leave an hour early every Friday as a benefit.

    Cons

    very little structure no one person knows what you are doing on a daily basis. Which leads to having too much thrown at you at once. If you can't multi task forget about getting anything done. Just a very disjointed position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add structure and make sure you truly understand the workload given to the role. Sometimes wearing too many hats just doesn't work.

    Pros

    Ability to learn about retail marketing management as well as Pharmaceutical Policies. Flexible Scheduling and ability for additional projects also a good thing.

    Cons

    Some strenuous work and poor hourly wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your wages for those who work several years. It will help having to constantly look for replacements.
