Associate Director of Human Resources (Former Employee) – Rogers, AR – October 17, 2018
Promotions based on social network instead experience and qualifications. Experience is full of people that are great at executing existing programs instead of those that can build or create them. There has to be a balance of both for a successful organization.
Would have continued to work for this company if the below problems did not exist. They did however, provide me with opportunity to obtain 3-year Food Handler's certification which makes me more marketable in this type of employment,
1. Training very poor due to software issues in time reporting.
2. Supervisor not trained to adequately assist employees with issues.
3. Not enough time allotted for set-up and prep of major cooking items.
4. Software presents with privacy issues.
Major issue(s) with this company has to do with their software issues and lack of support from field technicians. This presents major problems and frustrations for the employees whom half are retirees (65 and over).
Demonstrator (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – October 15, 2018
Sales were easy to maintain as the sampling was an easy part of the job The company does train sales well. The demonstrations were easy to set up but th3 company never cared about cleanliness of employees.
All online, little personal interaction with supervisor
MERCHANDISER (Former Employee) – Peoria AZ – October 15, 2018
I had a horrible experience. The format is to select jobs online and sign up. I never saw my supervisor. Two longtime employees decided that I was bad in some way that was never disclosed to me and turned my supervisor against me. I never had a chance to defend myself. Eventually I got such undesirable jobs that I quit.
There was a lot of driving between locations. But you can pi k the jobs to accept so if you are willing to work less you can reduce the driving.
Data Collector (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – October 15, 2018
I worked for Crossmark for 12 years and suddenly the client no longer wanted their services. The job consists of scanning displays in a retail store. When I first started the company was owned by Nielsen and then 5 years later sold to Crossmark. When I started out I made $11 and hour when Crossmark bought the company my pay went down to $10 an hour with a bonus that if you could scan so many SKUs in an allotted amount of time you would get a bonus of $1-$3 depending on how many items you could scan in so much time. But if you do not scan in the time they allot for you than you risk losing you job. I had 3 supervisors in the time I worked for Crossmark and all of them said they would come to my little store with me and evaluate the store. They never came to my store at all. I never met my supervisors face to face.
If you work in a remote area you are really on your own, low pay with bonuses that are to meet
I enjoyed working for crossmark under good management. we were encouraged to get to the floor with our product in a timely manner. The hardest part about being there (other than a terrible manager for the second year I was there) were the holiday events and keeping up with the rush. otherwise, all of it was really fun.
Nice environment to work in, many friendly people.
Talent Attraction Specialist (Current Employee) – Plano Texas – October 11, 2018
Collaborative culture with many friendly people willing to help from the CEO on down. Always room for advancement if someone is willing o work hard and pay attention to detail. Overall great experience.
Lead Event Specialist (Former Employee) – Vacaville, CA – October 10, 2018
I would help people to get their carts out on the floor to demo in a timely manner. The manager didn't even know how to cook. She never could help with questions. She was a back stabber. If you made her angry she would let you know on the floor. I was in charge at night to get all the carts done by myself. Sometimes there were too many and I did 2 hours of overtime and never could claim it.
Event Specialist (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – October 8, 2018
This company not only out right told us to lie to the customers but lied to us as well. When they came through for reviews you could be doing everything right and youd still be in trouble for something as small as the napkins are slightly bent.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – South Carolina – October 6, 2018
I’ve been working for crossmark for over two years. It was great at first I liked the work and had a really good manager, but in June I did an internal transfer got a new manager who’s not that great. When I first got to him he didn’t communicate with me I had to email him first. I transferred over in June and didn’t started back working until August because the manager never let me know nothing and said he didn’t know I was a transfer. I only get a few jobs which I spend more in gas going to the job because when I get there the job is done. After today I will be putting in a notice to the company and leaving it’s not worth sitting around waiting for. Today is the first time in weeks I have heard from my manager! You can’t make a living with this, definitely not now I’ve been scheduled for a total of 8 hours one week, but only ended up with an hour being done.
