flexible working hours
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Brampton, ONApril 3, 2014
Pros: choose my own day and time to work
Cons: drive alot
I go to each store sign in and then head to the back to get the boxes and then to the section to merchandise and sign off and then go to the next store.
The hardest part of the job is to drive around and in each store not many hours to do.
I like the flexibility of the job to choose my own hours.

Run away. Not worth the effort.
Merchandizer (Former Employee), OntarioJanuary 17, 2014
Cons: too many employees for too few stores. lots of computer time that is unpaid.
At first it was okay, enough work. Then a new supervisor was put into place. Subsequently, I had no hours, and spent more money on gas than I made in wages. The local stores that I had worked before the regime change were taken away and given to the friends of the "supervisor" who micro-managed beyond belief.
No response from head office with my concerns.

Event Specialist (Former Employee), Cobourg, ONJanuary 9, 2014
I only had a few shifts a week but the pay was alright. There wasn't anything hard about the job and it didn't last very long. My trainer was great and the job was easy to pick up.

Experience
Event Specialist (Former Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 7, 2013
Pros: fun environment
Cons: very less working days, and ignorance by the customers in some situations
Working as a demonstrator is a good experience and we learn how to deal with customers and demonstrate them the products. Greet treat and sell is the motto of the company. I like the pay and the benefits.

Comfortable, productive and interactive environment
Demo Event Specialist (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 3, 2013
Pros: works very well with a student's schedule
Cons: heavy tables
A typical day at work consists of: Checking into the store location that was assigned, checking inventory, setting up table for a professional display, cleaning supplies that will be used during the event, cooling or cooking (depending on which samples one is serving) food to make it tasty for the customer, memorizing product attributes from sales plan, – more... and telling customers about them, serving the proper amount in portion cups and encourage people to try them.

The management is excellent because workers are always emailed a week before or so about their projects and all questions and concerns are always taken care of.

The hardest part of the job is sometimes putting the table together, and putting everything away and carrying the heavy table into back room or upstairs.

The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with others, learning about the product and the very helpful and kind people I work with. – less

POOR TRAINING AND WORSE MANAGEMENT
INVENTORY SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Alberta, CanadaApril 8, 2013
Pros: work my own hours & $14.50 / hour
Cons: everything else! poor training, management, support.....
I was given 8 hours "training" by the laziest "trainer" that I had ever met!
This training did NOT even cover everything that I was expected to do in my job!

There isn't even a manual on the position, or the equipment that I am supposed to use!

My position is as a "Field Agent", and I am expected to know EVERYTHING about the job and my equipment with – more... NO training!

I have had THREE supervisors in less than one year, and my current supervisor is based in MONTREAL, and I am in ALBERTA!

We finally have a Team Lead (she is based in my area) after almost a year after the last one was fired.

The only good things about this position are:
that I work my own hours (as long as the work is done by the deadline.)
and I am paid $14.50 / hour .

Other than this, I am looking forward to quitting this terrible company, as soon as I find another part time job! (NOT IN RETAIL!) – less

Marketing Research and Data Collection (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCAugust 2, 2012
Pros: flexable hours, management, co-workers, work life balance
Cons: no room to move up. all employees are part time
I have had a great experience working with Crossmark and its staff. Everyone has been more than hospitable my entire time with them. Unfortunately it is only a part time position throughout the entire company and I need a more stable atmosphere for my family. It was the perfect job at the time, while I was still in school. The flexible hours but stiff – more... deadlines really worked well my my schedule but it is time to fine something full-time. – less

I really enjoy this job ! I get to interact with people all day long .
Event specialist (Current Employee), Cornwall, ONJuly 25, 2012
Pros: good salary
Cons: standing
My day at work is pretty straight forward, I engage in conversation with many consumers about products and experience they might have with the products. I have learned how to multitask when promoting more then one product at a time, keeping my self from being overwhelmed. managment in both the store and the company i work for are both great. My co-workers – more... are friendly and easy to get along with, I have not had any problems with them. The hardest part of my job would be standing the entire time. The most enjoyable part of my job is the interaction with consumers. – less

6 hrs a day, decent job
Event Specialist (Current Employee), Corpus Christi, TXApril 11, 2014
Pros: easy
Cons: only part time, 12 to 18 hrs a week is all you are offered, hours not guarenteed
For the amount of pay you get it is an easy job. you stand at a cart for 6 hrs a day preparing food sample to customers. The biggest downfall is that you are not guaranteed any hrs each week.

Poor Management, No Raises, Projects Cancelled Last Minute
Merchandiser (Former Employee), MAApril 10, 2014
Pros: not really sure at this time
Cons: poor management, no raises, projects cancelled last minute, unrealistic expectations from managers
This Company promises flexibility, but they expect you to be flexible to accommodate their last minute changes. Projects are often re-scheduled or cancelled last minute when it is too late to pick up other work. I would suggest using this company as EXTRA holiday cash or for a special family fund. If you are counting on them to consistently provide – more... hours, they don't. If you are expecting a raise for completing all projects on time and reporting 100%, don't because you will only be disappointed. If you are expecting Managers to be professional, you will be disappointed by the tantrums when you tell them when they call at 4pm that you cannot arrive at 8am the next morning to a project you knew nothing about before the phone call. – less

Event Specialist (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 9, 2014
Pros: hourly rate of $10
Cons: insufficient and irregular work
You are never sure how much and when you will be working for the week. There are too may rules to follow and there is some preferential treatment by boss.

Normal work day
Sales-Rep/Merchandiser (Current Employee), Houston, TxApril 8, 2014
A typical work day would start off with me driving to my stores that I'm assigned to. When I get there I have to check in with the managers and see if they have the products that I need to put out. Sometimes I'll have to build displays, other days I'll have to stock the shelves with the product.
I'd say the hardest part of my job is having to make sure – more... the department managers are on the same page as I am when it comes to dates and timing on everything. The most enjoyable part of my job is the fact that I get free reign on my schedule. I am told what needs to be done, the date it's due, and it's up to me to decide when I get it done (as long as it's done on time). – less
