    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time

    Pros

    Could be really good if the hours were available, love the people the co workers are great,have a great boss and love getting a free membership to the wholesale club that the demos take place in

    Cons

    shortness of hours,canceled demos sometimes which shortens your paycheck and the hours that were told you would have differ from what you really get

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management needs to be on the floor more and available to the workers in case we need them for anything especially anything urgent pertaining to the demo, or any accidents etc

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

    Pros

    Pay, work environment, ease of work, get to talk to people all day.

    Cons

    While starting salary is high, it is the same for everyone. It is a bit aggravating when you work much harder to promote the product as apposed to your co-workers and are paid an equal amount.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the difference between an "impulse buy" product and a "non-impulse buy" product and change the goals accordingly. Sometimes the goals are realistic and obtainable, but often they are not. After changing the goals, offer rewards for employees for continually meet them.

    High expectations, low pay for the amount of work required

    I have been working at CROSSMARK

    Pros

    Some teams are great to work on, some not so much. Like any company there are good managers and bad ones.Pays weekly,

    Cons

    Part time workers are expected to be responsive like a full time employee-check your company email every day even if you aren't working every day, change your schedule whenever they decide they want you to work, change your working hours (was hired to work M-F, then I was told I would have to work weekends) and expect you to always be available even though you are part time
