Demo and sample hand out person (Former Employee), Amherst, Nova Scotia – November 8, 2014
Pros: the customers were fun to work with
Cons: poor training more like you have to take charge for yourself.
This was a big joke all of use had no idea what we needed to do so I would start working trying to get things moving. Then I would get told off in front of other workers and people in the store where we were setting up. They were rude and really disrespectful to me in a way I've never experienced. If you needed more information or had a question they – more... didn't know the answer and would never get back to.
There was fun dealing with customer and meeting people I will say. You stand all day do not get any breaks and if your lucky you might get time for lunch. They don't pay to bad I would say fair, but you'll work for it. I tired to speak to one Crossmark manager or what ever they call them about the way they were acting towards me and ,I couldn't get a word out of my mouth. I was much older then most of the people working there and I told them because I'm a diabetic I needed to snack or eat and keep a eye on my sugar.
I should of wore a diaper because I was lucky to get to use the washroom. It seemed like a fun job at first but the things started go south as you got a taste of the manager. I really think that all of us doing the work would of done much better on our own. The last day they took our lunch time away and wanted to change it to two 15 minute breaks lol, the only ones that liked that idea was the smokers, well it didn't work out for me. I've worked for 35 years and was doing this to keep busy and I like to work.
So when I tired to talk to the manager to try and reason with her she told me I was fired. First time I've ever been fired from a job.
Well that's my story and not saying don't ever work there it might work for you! – less
