    Good Side Job

    Lead Event Specialist (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    Pros-paid every week
    -paid for any training
    -decent pay (more than minimum wage)
    -work up to four or five days a week
    -very interactive
    -report your own time
    -try new products

    Cons-Some months will limit your days to work (some months are just slow so you work less days)
    -You have to stay on your feet all day. (Which is not really a con if you're young)
    -Sometimes the management clashes or the companies' policies clashes. (We don't work for the stores that we're in. We work for the company Crossmark so the store manager might not cooperate with our policies)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease give events to people who actually need it if the events are coming in slow. I understand that everybody should have a least one event but some event specialist need all the days they can take to pay their bills. Some people are just within the company just to have money in their pocket but still live off of their parents. Also I would suggest you hire people only when the events get heavy. It takes about a month for someone to actually start working. Know which months are the busiest, then decide if you want to hire more people to your team or not.

    The pay was ok for the job, but could have been better.

    Event Specialist (Former Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsEnjoyed working with my fellow co-workers.

    ConsThe customers at this particular store was becoming increasingly rude with attitudes of entitlement. It began to feel like the supervisors were watching us to try to catch us doing something wrong. I left just as a new supervisor was hired whom did not appear to have much management experience.

    Flexible work environment.

    Retail Representative (Current Employee) DFW, TX

    Not the best not the worst

    Event Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsReally awesome people on my team. Fun & easy job. Hourly pay isn't bad. Good for extra income. If you have a passion for cooking/serving, this is a fun way to do it.

    ConsRules seem to change a lot. Our team has had a hard time with good supervisors, they switch them around a lot/fire/replace. Hours are low unless it's a holiday. Not a job you can live off of alone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustrating

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsI see lots of people and interact with shoppers.

    ConsThe events keep getting larger and larger with more and more products to do all at once and the benefits stink. Been there four yrs. and can't get a raise..Time to find another job! Met the supevisory person from hell last week. She was so condescending it made me furious

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider your event specialists once in awhile..they are people too!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
