Working for CCS is generally a positive thing. The most common position is a part-time representative working under the name of various other companies that hire CCS to promote their brands. Usually a shift is 4-8 hours on a weekend at a major retailer carrying the brand you represent. Once there you'll do demos, assist customers who are browsing for the type of product your brand makes, and train the everyday employees in the store about the benefits of your brand's products.
Managers are very hands off in these jobs out of necessity. Usually your "boss" will cover a huge area of the country. You'll generally stay in touch by phone, emails, and conference calls. You may also at times run into trainers who will want to talk to you. Management mainly just wants to make sure you are showing up and doing your best representing your brand. Day to day, doing this is going to be entirely up to you though.
The hardest part of the job is that it can be slow at times depending on who you represent. Most of the people who get fired from this kind of job simply wander off when it's slow, or don't show up at all, or are off sleeping somewhere. Usually the managers who work at the host stores will leave you alone, so long as you are on the floor. If not, a call is likely to get placed to someone and that'll be the end of you! Fight the boredom! Even if it gets slow, stick to your post. Take your scheduled breaks, talk with the store employees and get to be friends with them. Anything that keeps you there and helps past time. That's probably the hardest part of the job is passing that slow – more... time. Remember as long as you are there when you are needed, you are doing your part. You're getting paid fairly well for not a very high demand usually too.
Don't expect full time hours or benefits. There's not really a defined path of advancement, and contracts can end abruptly (and restart just as abruptly). But generally you'll get to work with other people that aren't hard to get along with, and that can be fun. – less
