    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Committed not only to serving clients but to employees

    Cons

    Job security is an issue if you are working on a field team, the contracts can be relatively short if you are working on a client team and it could leave you out to dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you need to do to ensure the continuation of programs.

    Current Employee - Field Marketing Representative in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Creative Channel Services part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked here since 2011.
    Great for student looking for an easy dollar that you work to your schedule. As a student you cant really get that kind of flexibility doing anything else. A great move from standard retail you are seen as a professional and a person with knowledge. You have to want to help customer and the brand.

    Cons

    No compensation for using my own gear. Used my own SD cards, car,oil,phone, computer,gps you name it it was out of my pocket. I would drive upto 200 miles in day of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the client happy make sure they know what they are getting. Keeping them involved is important but make sure they dont take advantage of them. Some clients think they are the direct bosses and try to make you do things outside of the description. Management needs better communication skill at the lower level. The National managers are your best contact. I would always go straight to them.

    I worked at Creative Channel Services part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to make your own schedule. decent pay.

    Cons

    No benefits or travel time. passive agressive management. lack of training. No bonuses and little to no advancement possibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More trainings and training materials needed. Show that you LOVE the clients you represent. There is no positive reinforcement in this job. When you do a good job, reward your employees. You will get better employees that way

    Pros

    Great as supplemental income
    Flexible hours

    Cons

    Admin reports on Cognistix are tedious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go over upon hire the program expectations, the recruiters may not tell you that the program already started so if the recruiter says 8 week program but the program is already 3 weeks in, manager needs to go over again program details and times

    Current Employee - Field Marketing Representative in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Creative Channel Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some scheduling flexiblitiy
    Learning and sharing about all the latest electronic devices
    Good supplemental income for retirees or students

    Cons

    The best programs will require weekend work
    Not fairly compensated for your administrative/reporting time
    Not compensated for use of your own vehicle and home office and supplies
    CCS call employees for "opportunities" that make no sense for example
    they want you to visit 10 sites and earn $15 an hour. But you are to spend 1 hour per site. Visit 10 sites you will earn $150. The problem is your sites are all over the place you will burn a full tank of gas without compensation. After your costs you will earn less than $100 after taxes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate greed is not good. Your treatment of field reps is unconscionable. If corporations are people, our society is doomed.
