My advice would be for them to become an undercover boss starting from the bottom and fill out an applications to work, completing the whole process in the allotted 7 days, then get assigned to work a job, where the uniform, stand on their feet for 6 hours, tote a table and a trash can and bunch of stuff in a store along with their event manual and do the event, fill out the paperwork and call in the market link to get paid, see how long it takes you to get paid, see how they can improved that process then move on to staffing as a talent specialist and monitoring all events including Gallo and re-staffing and they should only get paid the same amount a talent specialist would during this time. They should also complete the time card during this time.
The company has implemented a new chain of command for the talent specialist in all regions. It would be nice if prior to implementing new changes management would discuss the pros and cons of this with the regional managers that have a combined on the job experience time of over 20+ years in this industry. The talent specialist and talent in the field feel isolated and unappreciated but in this economy the extra money makes people hold on to jobs regardless since they are classified as part-time. The problem is for the talent specialist they work full time hours so this only fuels the feelings of dissatisfaction.
They also implemented new procedures for the event facilitators (EFs) but the EFs haven't heard from anyone. They use to report to the talent specialist and then have monthly calls with the regional managers and would get monthly newsletter. Now they are just getting feedback only if someone comes out and audits them. Who wants to only get bad news? They use to get bonuses and they use to get to keep any gift cards. Now they are just told be happy you have a job. Their pay is late and they are told to stop complaining. What if they have questions? They can't keep track of who to call, it keeps changing.
Promote from within. Offer better bonuses for excellent performances.
