    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love to work for Crossmark because they work with your schedule to the absolute best of their ability.
    The Event Specialist position is a very easy one.
    It is not commission, it is hourly (and a decent pay of $10.25+ depending on experience).
    I enjoy the people that I work with.
    I have the best boss ever.
    There are opportunities within the company to go up to become a Team Lead or a Retail Supervisor depending on how hard you work and if you are liked enough.

    Cons

    The medical insurance costs a lot.
    There aren't enough benefits to the job.
    We do not get a set number of hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice for personal growth is to not hire as many people, but to give the ones that you already have on your team the opportunity to work more days. You could split the events up (for instance, there are times that we have 3 different demos of Yogurt on the same day - why not just have one person do all 3 in the same week?) so that one person can be working multiple days a week.

    I understand the wanting to hire more people on so that more people can work, but making everyone suffer by hiring new people when you have people who have worked with you since 2010 is not a way to keep the loyal employees around.

    Pros

    Crossmark offers a varied type of positions allowing you to find what best suits you. They have an excellent training program to help you succeed.

    Cons

    The only con would be that they often change territory areas. This causes inconsistency in management.
