    Employee nearly 4 years.

    Retail Representative (Current Employee) Pine Bush, NY

    ProsGenerally it is a Mon - Fri with no nights or holidays. Somewhat flexible schedule except when there are hard dated tasks. A slight pay advantage exists if you take a team lead or mentor position.

    ConsThere is a no raise policy. Being a team lead or a mentor offers 50 cents more per hour but only during a mentoring or team lead task.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the no raise policy. Employees need incentive and it is reasonable to expect to be rewarded for consistent, quality work. Training was non existent when I started but is better now due to the mentor project.

    Nice job if only you were treated and paid like a professional.

    Retail Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsSome flexibility in scheduling. Ability to work on your own. Interacting with a lot of different people at different job sites. Challenging work, always busy.

    ConsLow pay for all asked for on the job. Hard to get paid for all your hours. Hours are reduced so company does not have to provide health care.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great part-time job with a dedicated team. Wonderful manager!

    Crossmark Retail Sales Representative (Former Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsThis was my first experience for a broker so I have nothing to compare it to.

    ConsThe Dedicated Team I worked for slashed its budget 50% for 2014 and I was downsized. They need to revisit mileage reimbursement and printing/copies reimbursement. $.6 a copy is VERY low. After all, there are print cartridges that have to be bought.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let your client run YOUR business!

    not too bad to work for

    Data Collection Associate (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    Prosset your own schedule, work when you want to. such an easy job.

    ConsNo support from management. I have sent several emails to my old and new supervisor with questions about work, and have never received a response. My old supervisor would not answer her phone and if you left a message she would never return the call. Low pay and hourly pay incentive is a joke. I actually make more money if I work slower, and forget trying to understand how they breakdown any of the incentive money, you'll never be able to figure out their crackpot accounting!

    Retail Representative (Current Employee) Everett, WA

    Awful.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOK to take a job here if you are very desperate for money and no one else will hire you. Always trying to cheat employees out of hours and always freeloading the employees belonging.

    ConsPoorly mismanaged. Managers conduct audits as part of a witch hunt to harass and intimidate employees - called a "write up" in the trade.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's easy to criticize but hard to do better - keep this in mind during store audits. Is this an audit or a witch hunt?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company, average pay

    Crossmark Retail Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule and it's a Monday thru Friday work week.

    ConsA lot of time spent driving in a very large territory. The company does not provide company cars, so you place a lot of wear and tear on your personal vehicle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVehicle allowance and mileage reinbursement does not adquately cover the cost of using personal vehicles. A equitable solution needs to be reached.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
