    Pros

    I can only share the pro in that I enjoyed the job description/role of my Project Staffing Coordinator position. I enjoyed aspects of event staffing itself, but can't really offer up a pro for the Company in particular. Although, I will say that the pay scale and medical benefits was decent/ average.

    Cons

    I worked for Promoworks before Crossmark bought the Company out. I enjoyed my job of staffing events, and the opportunity of working virtually/remote from home. However the direction/guidance from Home Office generally felt detached, scattered, disorganized, and all over the place. And there seemed to be a high-pressured, rushed, negative vibe hanging overhead so often. It wasn't a positive environment where you felt appreciated, no matter how hard you worked. Instead of a leadership vibe that leaves employees feeling inspired, energized, and valued ----it typically felt the opposite.

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

    Pros

    "Allways In-Store" I think it was.

    It depends on where they send you, but the people that work at whatever store they send you to can be really nice, even the manager. :3 Good for getting some fresh air, talking to people, and overall a good place to start.

    Personal note: If you promote enough times at a store you regularly shop at, you'll have an easier time finding what you need in the future.

    Cons

    It could be for the sake of the company, but from experience, some of the coordinators like to play favorites with their demonstrators. Calling these coordinators unreliable is an understatement. It could also be the fact that they just recently lost Safeway. On top of that, they might tell you about a new rule of code that seems strange and possibly frivolous, so be VERY thorough if you're reading up on company policy and/or code of conduct. Don't let them confuse and possibly make you lose out.

    Personal note: The managers at (most) of the stores I worked at were a good bit more forgiving (and nicer) than the ones at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Leaning more towards the coordinators:
    STOP. PLAYING. FAVORITES. Even if it's for the sake of the (possibly dwindling) company or mainly your avarice.

    Personal note: I quit for non-personal reasons unrelated to this.
    Basing this on the different stores I've promoted at, there are MANY companies out there willing to hire competent workers who are more friendly and less biased than you. >:(

    For management:
    I have had a few coordinators that WERE reliable and nice. They provided more than a welcoming atmosphere/environment than ...these coordinators. More of them would be great.
