    Pros

    -You get to demo product at Sam's Club to members
    -Your day starts no earlier than 10am most days
    -Decent pay for what it is
    -You do get recognition at times.

    Cons

    I've only been here a short while, but the biggest con right now is the hours. Shifts are 6 hours long and sometimes events get cancelled or postponed at the last minute. So you can look at your schedule one day and the next day it's changed with a day missing or a day added. This kind of inconsistency makes it rough for people with a second job or other prior engagements because you may be working one day, then poof, event's gone and day wasted. This inconsistency also makes it rough to make it a job where you can rely on stable hours so you don't need to work a second job. It's considered part-time, but can pick up more hours if you'd like...that is, if there are any more events during the week to pick up.

    Another con, which is small but one nonetheless is that you can be demoing ANYTHING. Most of it is food (and members eat that up quite literally) but some of what you have to demo is non-food product, or sometimes really expensive items (I remember someone trying to sell a camera valued at $850). You have to be a literal sales god to sell these things and depending on where you are (ie: lower income areas), they're not selling at all. So keep that in mind, read up on it and you may be able to convince someone. Also, fruit usually sells itself, so you'll be in the middle of your selling song and dance and they've already grabbed the fruit after sampling it to buy some. xD

    Advice to Management

    I happen to love this job. It's easily the best job I've ever had and I wish the hours were more consistent. I'd also love to see a variety of product demo'd.

    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time

    Pros

    Great Company to work for the company has a great support team when needing help with anything and everyone is super FRIENDLY!!

    Cons

    being a part time employee your hours are not ever guaranteed and they hire people all the time. .

    offer better health care plans for part time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your current employees, even when they are part time. when you start a new project and need to hire more help, hire people who understand their hours are not guaranteed or hired for a temporary position.
    what I'm trying to say is you need to take care of the workers you currently have first.
    If you keep your current employees working as much as you can, when you start a new project you wont have so many new people who don't know what they are doing.
    Every time we start a new project there are so many new people that it makes the process go very slow. Employees are having to learn how to perform their job and it slows everyone down .It looks very bad on the company.
    I under stand its sometimes not possible to give everyone work, but something needs to change.
     Training really need to be a Priority, the new hire should be trained, before they are brought to work in front of a Client.(I suggest 3 to 5 day Minimum Training.) First impressions are very important.
    I personally have been in the Retail Business for 20+ years, everyday someone is watching, you should always be at 100%. One projects success, can determine your company's future. If one person has a bad review on the company, they tell someone else and it just keeps going. That one persons opinion can be the source of the company getting future contracts.
    I hope somehow my advice can make a difference.
    CROSSMARK is a wonderful company to work for, just need a few minor repairs.

    Sincerely,
    A CROSSMARK, Part Timer.
