Local managment was very good, corporate policy and dealings rather poor.
In - house at Fred Meyer, HBA relay manager (Former Employee), Portland, ORMarch 28, 2014
Pros: regional supervisors were very supportive.
Cons: pay cuts.
My time as a Crossmark employee was mostly in-house at Fred Meyer, a Northwest retail chain. The only connection I had with Crossmark were the supervisors which I reported my hours to, so I basically worked at and for Fred Meyer, with my pay coming from Crossmark. The Northwest regional supervisor, with whom I worked my last year at Crossmark, was the – more... very best. My direct dealings with Crossmark corporate, how they treated me and honored agreements, were problematic, to say the least. Fred Meyer, on the other hand, was a terrific company to work with, close knit and supportive, while its employees, for the most part, are proud to work there and care about the company name. – less

Great flexible social position
Kraft & PVM Representative (Former Employee), Joliet, ILMarch 25, 2014
Pros: very flexible and is basically freelance
Cons: addresses and directions to some stores are incorrect
I was a Retail Representative for kraft and PVM Foods. I would go to a variety of gas stations, small stores, and Wal-Marts to check thier inventory of Kraft and PVM products.
I usually talk to the store's manager or owner and offer newer products for them if they are not already in the stores.

The most enjoyable part of this job to me was the fact – more... that I was able to be social and professional at the same time. I learned that I could build a relationship professionally by just being myself and doing my job! – less

My Favorite Job to Date
Event Specialist (Former Employee), Lynn Haven, FLMarch 23, 2014
Pros: 6 hour days, usually only 3-4 days a week, but great pay as well.
Cons: not very many opportunities to move around while standing.
I learned out to set things up and break them down in timely manner, sale products, and work with customers.

My manager was great, always encouraging me and helping me through what I had trouble in.

Co-workers were always nice and willing to lend a hand.

Hardest part was being given a hard to sell product like toilet paper.

Most enjoyable part was – more... making food, because it sold well, and was easy to hand out. – less

Good idea, terrible execution.
Lead Events Specialist (Current Employee), Anchorage, AKMarch 21, 2014
Pros: sampling many products, great starting pay
Cons: no full time, no benefits, no raises, no advancement, terrible management, boring
I have to start out saying that I love the idea Crossmark has behind it, enabling people to try products before they buy them in bulk. There have been a number of products that I was given the chance to try out (as the demonstrator) and have found things that I really enjoyed when I wouldn't have had the chance otherwise. I think it's brilliant, cost – more... effective for families, and helps show people whats out there without them having to commit to something before trying it.

That said, my manager has been one of the hardest people to work for. He's on salary and ends up calling out more often than he's actually at work. He regularly ignores the paperwork part of his job due to his hate for administrative work, and leaves it to the leads who have their own plate full of things to do. WE end up not being able to accomplish our duties because we're too busy doing his and when brought to upper managements attention, it was completely ignored and dismissed. Because the RSE at my store was so relaxed, people got away with murder and the kitchen would become a disaster area on many days when the 3 or 4 responsible employees (out of 25) were on their days off.

It has great starting pay for a first time job, but there really is little excitement to the job, there's little room for advancement and there's no such thing as full time. You don't get any raises unless you're promoted and promotions are few and far between. There are no sick days, vacation pay, or any other benefits (aside from basic healthcare) unless you have a minimum of RSE position. – less

Territory Team Lead (Current Employee), Plano, TexasMarch 21, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: part time
I assign myself the schedule I prefer to work, then head out to the stores. I have learned a lot about the importance of customer/business relations when making sales. I have no co-workers at the moment, I work under a supervisor, which is limited supervision.

Good Short-Term Job
Tech Expert / Brand Ambassador (Current Employee), Utica, MIMarch 10, 2014
These positions pay a better wage than that of a fast food place without the fast pace. The Tech Expert position was a great gig but it was short lived. Learned a lot more about the features of computers, smart TV and so on. This company is very disorganized on a management aspect. Although my supervisor was good, her higher ups seemed to never communicate – more... effectively. The website needs some maintenance. It could save plenty of time being able to see your schedule from one place and report your time worked. – less

Nice Job
Data Collection Inventory (Former Employee), ILMarch 6, 2014
Pros: enjoyed
Cons: company was sold
I really enjoyed working for Crossmark. I was able to travel some and basically make my own schedule which worked out great. The only reason why I left was because the company was bought out by an investment company.

Horrible environment
Event Specialist (Former Employee), LouisianaMarch 4, 2014
Pros: it's a job, pay rate
Cons: management, lack of hours
The job itself is not so bad, but dealing with rude customers comes in any retail job. The management, on the other hand, is horrible. They only cared about themselves, played favorites, bullied employees, gossiped about employees. The company itself does not seem to care about their employees, as I would talk to them about being bullied by the management, – more... and the company never did anything about it, even as much as they promised they would. – less
