    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.

    great company to work for

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

    Pros

    I loved the flexibility in this job. The pay was great and most of the time you could reschedule events.

    Cons

    The upper management was rude and unorganized. Most of the time they had no idea what was going on, but they'd still be upset.

  11. Great for people wanting to work with animals!

    Pros

    Weekly training!
    Great resources available to use.
    Ability to engage with pets and give advice to pet parents.
    Set high goals for employees to encourage good work.

    Cons

    During my time, I knew more than my second supervisor. I spent much of my time on the calls frustrated when she didn't know answers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with experience in the field you are promoting.
