I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Crossmark's many business relationships allow you to work with a very diverse amount of companies, including (based on my experience) Shop Rite, Walgreens, Rite Aid, A&P and subsidiaries, Kings, CVS, and many more, which if you provide enough service to these stores, you learn a lot about their operations and employees, and thus can open up advancement opportunities through them.

Cons

On site supervision from your CROSSMARK supervisor is non-existant except for perhaps a week or two post hiring. While your supervisor can help you and give leniency when dealing with absences or inability to perform work, it's based on what you have reported over time, not actual onsite supervision of your skills. Thus, advancement within CROSSMARK is minimal.

Advice to Management

Many representatives are divided amongst a limited number of supervisors, while it is not a fiscally beneficial option to hire more supervisors, at the very least these supervisors should be contacting the individuals whom these stores work in direct contact. This way, either praise or criticism can be gathered from those who work with the representatives, instead of based purely on the results of information placed into the job tracking system.

    Pros

    Its weekends and a job with 12.5 p/h not bad. If you like being around people and cooking food this might entertain you.

    Cons

    Not much promotion opportunity. Have to follow strict rules and may face discipline if out of line.

    Advice to Management

    Flexible schedule for people are a good thing.

    I have been working at CROSSMARK part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with great people, enjoy most customers and get between 2 and/or 3 days per week. Also have a wonderful supervisor.

    Cons

    I have been working for Crossmark for almost 2 years and have never had a raise, bonus or any type of incentive for a job well done. Although most of us continue to go over our goal we are never even given an "attaboy". Because of this the morale is horrible and at times depressing.

    Advice to Management

    If management wants more production from his employees he has to compensate in some form of incentive. Maybe a Christmas bonus; maybe a yearly raise; or maybe some type of reward for reaching ones goal. I personally get to my goal most events and get up to 10,000% often. What's up this this picture.
