    Pros

    The location is great and the building was nice to office in. There are some talented people and the work atmosphere was great. There was a point in time when management changed and our new CIO was awesome. She had a vision and power to get things done. She was making progress like no other and making a huge difference with the direction of the company and IT..

    Cons

    It seems the IT division could never get the budget to do what was needed and so cutting corners was necessary. When management changed the last time I was there it went south. If you were not on board with a direction or management then you were a target for replacement. They also rotate IT management every 3 years which in turns starts a reset with projects and talent leaves. It was always expected to see churn every 3 years and lose some great people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep management for at least 5yr prior to changing them out. In addition retain your talent and empower them to make a difference will help differentiate you from the competition. Lastly if you are able to get someone like the CIO whom she was making a difference you will unstoppable.

    Pros

    Interesting and diverse work. Now that I have qualified for a tablet, the reporting process is much simpler and cleaner.

    Cons

    It is only part-time. I have to work three different part-time jobs to make ends meet. Full time work with one company is my goal.

  7. Gained experience In merchandising

    I worked at CROSSMARK

    Pros

    Learned how to read plan-o-grams and how to build cosmetic displays. Opportunities to lead projects. Learned the ins and outs of different retailers.

    Cons

    Lack of hours during down times. No benefits. traveling too far for very little work. Some store management can have very negative attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Be more pro active when an associate expresses concern about store management. They are essentially helping the store out with work that they do not have to use their allotted hours for. The least management can do is be respectful when a representative is in their store.

    Pros

    This company provides Part Time work for food and product demos in places like Sam's Club.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great compared to what I'm used to, however, it is still more than other Part Time opportunities and allows a somewhat flexible schedule.
    The worst part is having to stand the whole time. Although we have a mat to stand on, it is still hard on my feet.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to be able to have a stool to sit down when needed, especially when not many customers are around.

    Pros

    there are not hands on, your pretty much responsible for yourself.
    they pay quickly and through direct deposit

    Cons

    there real unofficial in the way they work. Such as on my first day I had no uniform, or script of any sorts, so that i could greet customers properly. They literally just threw me into the situation and was like figure it out. which is fine, but at the same time TERRIBLE business etiquette

    Advice to Management

    Its a bad idea to hire new employees and have them work with out meeting there boss, or have proper attire

  11. It was friendly and relaxing.

    Was treated with respect and it was a very fun environment. There were a lot of customers to interact with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    There wasn't really much bad about this job except I wish there would have been more hours. I hardly ever worked.
