I have been working at CROSSMARK full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent pay and benefits, left alone most of the time.

Cons

Too many racks and products pushed out to you, and never what you truly need, my house looks like a warehouse. Technology is behind and lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let sales reps order what they need for their territory. Update online sight and give us something other than these handheld PCs.

    Pros

    You are exposed to some very big name companies within the CPG industry and it's a great place to learn a lot of industry knowledge. The corporate office used to have a very community and family like atmosphere but this has diminished with the higher turnover.

    Cons

    Training programs and materials for corporate based positions are poor to non-existent. They have an excellent training department but the majority of their materials are created for field based positions.

    Overall compensation for salaried employees can be poor for the number of hours worked Salary ranges for a position vary widely and are kept very quiet. If your are promoted from within, you will be given a percentage raise that in some cases will not put you into even the bottom of the salary range for your new position. Bonuses are rare, small and can be denied if your division is collapsed regardless of your performance or the overall performance of the division.

    Advancement opportunities have all but vanished unless you are part of the managment training program consisting primarily of recent college graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management trainees are a great resource for your future but don't forget about your tenured and experienced associates. They've been loyal to you but you aren't returning the favor in benefits, compensation or opportunities. They still have a lot to bring to the table that it will take years for the "new kids" to acquire IF they don't leave for better pay and benefits before then.

    Loved working for this company and hated to leave. Unable to continue doing resets and more demanding projects.

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck. Plenty of work if you live in a large metropolitan area. Work own schedule and hours. Great supervisors.

    Cons

    Some work physically demanding. Not enough work if you live in rural area. Other companies have better pay and mileage compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation for tenured employees.
