Started with a 'Big Idea': The People that Inspire and Inform Shoppers at the Critical Moment of Purchase.
It was 1995: Hootie & the Blowfish was topping the charts, Toy Story was amazing kids of all ages and the ‘Rachel ‘do’ was forever imprinted on our collective memory.
These times also brought an explosion of technologies that were becoming truly accessible, everyday ‘consumer electronics.’ And that meant consumers were being given a lot of choices, but not enough information to make the right decisions. Enter the need for expert advice - and the importance of the recommendation at the moment of purchase.
Working in the retail distribution channel at that time, CCS’ ambitious founders saw the future, realizing that though these ‘retail pros’ - geeks, gurus, experts, sales associates - represented an incredibly powerful tipping point for shoppers, brands and retailers, they weren’t being given the proper attention they needed and deserved.
With the unique philosophy and strategy of serving the ‘people at the point of purchase’ at the heart of the vision, we came together with two goals in mind. Our mission was to make retail better by educating and elevating the effectiveness of ‘retail pros’ who have the power to connect consumers with the right brand and product. And, of course, we were inspired to build a truly great, enduring company that is good for business and good for people.
Fast forward to today. We’re very proud of the millions of retail pros who we’ve helped better serve consumers, the hundreds of global brands and retailers whose businesses we’ve made stronger, the thousands of CCS teammates we’ve worked side-by-side with, and the countless millions of shoppers we’ve helped pick the right smartphone, TV, dishwasher, tires, notebook, power tools and thousands of other products.
Our Mission: To make retail better and improve people's lives through informed and inspired shopping.
That's Our Mission today, and it was when we began in 1995: for the better part of two decades, we've been inspired to collaborate with our brand and retailer partners, for the purpose of connecting consumers with the service and support they need at the critical moments of recommendation and purchase.

There were no real cons to the company during my time there. My reason for leaving had nothing to do with being unhappy at my job. Management position became available.
Advice to Management
Promote from within. Some of your best leaders are those who raised themselves through the ranks. They have the ability to bring a perspective that can help the business continue to grow.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Creative Channel Services in November 2016.
Actually recruiter called me about the position and did phone interview and then regional director called me for second phone interview. Later Regional manager emailed me and wanted me to complete "project" over the weekend where I would visit Best Buy and Bed, Bath & Beyond and critique Roomba iRobot products. Went to 2 locations and took pictures, interviewed sales associates and submitted report on time. Regional Director never gave feedback on report. Finally got an email from HR that another candidate was selected.
