    Pros

    Pay was decent. Pay every week. Can basically make your own schedule. Meet new people

    Cons

    Have to use own equipment. Does not provide you with a tablet but I’ve had two Supervisors that stated I would be provided with one. They both lied. Communication between the Supervisor is not consistent. Not enough hours to make a decent check. Materials don’t arrive on time for assigned projects.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better without lying to employers.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company

    Cons

    Management does not support their employees. Back stabbers.

    Pros

    There really are none unless you are a favorite

    Cons

    No communication, lack of work, didn't know how to schedule for the project

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what your needs are before taking on a contract you have no clue of doing.

    I worked at CROSSMARK as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flex schedule and casual dress code

    Cons

    High turnover, people are fired on a daily basis or just walk out due to poor upper management. You are micromanaged and have unrealistic expectations. Most recruiters they hire are contractors and are expected to take off Thanksgiving and Christmas week UNPAID! Low pay for the work you are doing. Management is constantly implementing and changing policies on day to day basis. WORST company I have ever worked for.

    I worked at CROSSMARK part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy tasks, pays above minimum wage

    Cons

    Full time is not an option, upper management treats employees poorly, high turnover rate, no benefits

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees terribly and as if they're disposable.

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

    Pros

    The job is flexible for the most part.

    Cons

    I have worked for Crossmark for nearly 3.5 years. Upon hire I did not hear from my Supervisor or receive any assignments for for nearly a month.

    On that note Supervisors are always extremely accomodating, to your face. They tell you what you want to hear so you can be temporarily placated. For instance I have been promised a raise for the past 2.5 years. Still nothing! In fact, in speaking with other employees, some have been with this company for a decade with no increase in wages or compensation whatsoever!'

    Onto job flexibility! Yes, you are in charge of your schedule. However, as a part time employee I am often assigned 50-60 hours of work per week that I am expected to complete for my part time wage and woefully inadequate travel and mileage compensation. I often go 1200 miles a week but the company only sees fit to compensate for 900 or so miles. The mileage reimbursement is a joke being less than half of the federal minimum! Yes the difference could be a tax write off if they paid you enough that you actually had to pay in.

    In my time hear, the operating systems and "rules" have changed at least 8 or 9 times. Currently the new "Timesheet" system which theyve implemented, puts all responsibility on the employee to ensure they get paid. This was all automated in the past and is just another way for the company to reduce its overhead at its lowest level employees expense. As a matter of fact, the system is so buggy that your pay is often delayed or withheld through no fault of your own! And good luck getting a response from the payroll department or your supervisor on the matter.

    To add further insult to injury new employees are often hired at higher starting wages than previous employees. One woman I recently trained was hired at a payrate of $2.51 more than I have been making these past years.

    I could go on, but hopefully Ive given anyone looking into this company reason to pause and reconsider.l They are a monolithic billion dollar company, none of the millions Ive generated for them have trickled down whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    You are the epitome of what is wrong with corporate America. I have no advice that you would listen to.

    I worked at CROSSMARK part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility if you're part time.

    Cons

    Higher management is awful. Avoid Crossmark like the plague. I had at least 5 bosses in six months.

    Advice to Management

    Focus your attention on those doing the leg work, they're important.

    Pros

    It’s easy to become an employee for the company

    Cons

    Horrible Hierarchy. The Administration is incompetent and they place the blame upon the shoulders of their employees once clients begin to notice. They’re unorganized and dishonest to clients and employees. You will never fully be compensated if you ever part ways with the company.

    Advice to Management

    None
