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

    Pros

    I I left the Nutro Company and joined Crossmark almost 2 years ago. I'm a Nutrition Consultant, from Marlborough, Massachusetts. I'm working part-time. I happen to think the pay is okay plus several opportunities to grow within the company. A person can totally switch careers because, Crossmark services several companies and they are everywhere . I'm thinking of relocating to a warmer climate. The nice part is, I could probably pick right up with the Company in Florida. Their training program is excellent and they strive to improve it. I remember, how hard it was applying to this company 2 yrs .ago. That application process was completely done over. Debbie

    Cons

    I have not asked my manager for a pay hike but, if I did, I know she would look into it. I know, they have some sort of retirement plan for part timers. They also reimburse you for travel, gas, printing documents and training,etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multitasking is very important here. Try to always get back to the people who work for you. Even if its not of importance to you, get back to your employee and say, go to Tech for that or, go to HR for that. The Company is huge and each manager has so many people under then. I 've heard some people mention at meetings that they feel unnoticed and wait long times to get answers to solutions from their Supervisors. When companies get this big, employees just feel like a number. I however nag my boss till she gets back to me and we get alone.

    Repetitive motion injuries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reexamine your policies and fix the sales plans. The sales plans are a joke. We get more information off of the wing signage than the sales plans.

    Pros

    Fun Job!
     Lots of interacting with people.
     Company policies are easy to follow and they (mostly) make sense.
    Find out about new products.
    Help when you need it from the company.

    Cons

    Some of the employees are lazy and unprofessional. You have to be able to work on your own and there are too many employees doing the bare minimum, leaving early, trying to boss other employees around when their performance is consistently sub-par, and too many leads not following company policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better system in place to weed out the bad apples you employ. They make Crossmark and the brands we promote during events look bad. Not to mention the store the demonstration is being done in.
