    I have been working at PromoWorks part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I like the easy or reporting my job activity work days online and the setup for having my own website to community to PromoWorks.

    Cons

    I am assigned to the same stores and I get to know the employers and employees at that store because they depend on me to show up whenever I am scheduled to perform a demo for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PromoWorks are a great company to work for and they are very professional in all that they do.

    I have been working at PromoWorks for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, it's easy if you are organized and computer savvy just want to work a few hours a week . Promoworks is now Crossmark so everything is online remote: Emails, reports, availability, expenses/time. . You get paid weeky on-time if you know what to do.

    Cons

    If you are not computer savvy, this job will be a challenge.. There is zero advancement opportunities, nor raises. You can work 2 months or 10 years at this place, same pay. it's a virtual ghetto for older people or people with no education or bad work record.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice. They don't extend to personally know or train engagement specialists in a group situation.. Bottom line is that client sales report gets logged in at the end of the event, whether it's factual or not. They are constantly hiring, so no worries.

    I have been working at PromoWorks

    Pros

    A smaller office where everyone knows each other. The culture is changing due to the acquisition by CROSSMARK.

    Cons

    The acquisition has changed the methods that a smaller company conducts its business.
    A lot of people have left, or are leaving, because of these changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. They have a lot to say.

    I worked at PromoWorks as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Was the only one doing the demo usually on the weekend days. The employees were very helpful finding things I needed to do the job.

    Cons

    Jobs were not offered very often but I had to travel to Bethlehem and Allentown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps the pay could be a bit higher....due to the traveling and prices of gas.

    I worked at PromoWorks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked with intelligent, hard working, pleasant individuals. My original boss for my department was great. Incredibly intelligent and shared their knowledge with the team; never felt their position was threatened so they shared so much of what they knew.

    Cons

    Low pay, office politics, favoritism, constant changes for the worst.

    I worked at PromoWorks as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Getting to meet new people. Fun job to do. Enjoyed job til Crossmart took over.

    Cons

    Can't seem to complete onboarding. most are rude on the phone. Your pay is late, short, or no pay. No one is welling to help. They still owe me money. Not fair pay for all the off the clock work you have to do. You buy a lot of cooking equipment you may use only once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communications. Compensate for all the work we do before and after a job. Promoworks was a lot better before Crossmart took over. Treat us like you would your other employees.

    I have been working at PromoWorks part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Seemed like it would be a good part-time job

    Cons

    no follow-through or communication after calls and e-mails. I just want to be paid for the training and the job I completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone works for you, and they are NOT paid for their job! and attempts are made to communicate regarding this problem! RESPOND TO EMAILS, in a timely and fair manner.

    I have been working at PromoWorks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Work from home
    2. Three weeks PTO
    3. Offers benefits

    Cons

    1. No communication from corporate
    2. Independent contractors that do not understand they are not employees and bookings vary
    3. Lacks social media presence, wants to change image of grocery store demonstrators, but recruitment method and pay will not attract talent they want

    4. Poor customer service with demonstrators, treat awesome demonstrators well and get rid of slackers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though job is work from home for many there still should be professionalism with emails. Need a company intranet and better social media.
