    Pros

    1) Our store/group mgr. is great to work for (firm, fair, and fun) and we have good people so very good employee relations. 2) Decent starting pay,10.50 hr. for cooking food samples and product demonstrations at large push carts in SAMs Club. 3) 6 hr. Shifts.

    Cons

    1) No Event Specialist ever gets a raise. Told it's company policy. 2) Work 6 hr (360 min) shift. At 5 hrs. and 45 mins (345 mins) you're allowed just the remaining 15 mins in your shift to push cart from floor, remove everything, pans, bowls, utensils, etc to the kitchen. Wash your and sometimes other misc dishes, dry them and put them away. Return unopened merchandise (that didn't sell from you're cart) to the immense sales floor of a SAMs Club. Clean oven or hot plate on you're cart, clean cart, sanitize cart, put away cart. Assist with general clean up in kitchen. Very rarely does anyone get done in 15 mins. More like 25 to 45 mins so we work 10 to 30 mins extra past our shift. Then we must have Internet access (some employees have to go to library after work if no other access), we must answer a 7-10 question survey online about our products and customer reactions etc. taking at least (5-10 mins) before we can enter our time worked for the day. So almost every shift includes 15 to 40 mins over our 6 hr (Crossmark calls it a 360 min) shift. But we're only allowed to enter our time worked as the official 360 min shift no matter the extra time involved. Crossmark's public reply has been, we pay for all work. Well, they don't. I guess they think we're magic and can clean up and enter survey/time online in just 15 mins. Or they're just counting on the fear of losing your job as intimidation to make us toe the line. 4) Most weeks some of us only get 1-2 shifts, not good. Some weeks NO shift, that hurts!

    Advice to Management

    Let us claim actual time worked and time spent getting online to take survey and fill out the days "report visit". We used to be able to, our store/group mgr was strict to maintain accuracy of our reporting but she knew we were bustin butt and knew we deserved being paid for it. Then one day came the directive from ON HIGH! no more "report visit" entries over 360 mins. The CEO and head of HR should go undercover or at least watch how fast we move to clean up at end of day but 9 times out of 10 you can't get done in 15 min. Better yet let's see them try it. Come on be fair, you sure aren't losing money by giving raises. I think WalMart had a little problem like this, how'd that work out?
