JulieShops,I got my raise, only AFTER I brought it up to my manager. It was only 4% but thats better than nothing. When I was hired, I was told that Id get a yearly raise on my anniversary date. All of a sudden the date went by, and a few months passed, I inquired about it, and was told raises were frozen. I did finally get the raise, thanks to my new manager who is always right there for us. You cant expect these people to know each and everyone's hiring date, so dont be afraid to inquire about your raise.

I am on a "dedicated" team, and wonder how many others may possibly be facing the phasing out of your territory, due to high miileage. With high gas prices, and a lot of us having a large area to travel to service our stores, the team Im on is pondering the elimination of territories in the very near future. Many of us have experienced a cutback of instore service, and now possibly be facing no work whatsoever. Have you been warned about this possibility in your division??

Is anybody doing the ride on toys reset at Walmart? I was scheduled to do three. I'm suppose to work with another person. I had one schedule last week the other person didn't show up. I had one scheduled Wednesday the other person didn't show up. I had one scheduled today and I was the only person scheduled for that reset I couldn't do it by myself because of the heavy lifting.

Does anyone know what is going on with the Demo's that Crossmark was doing in the Wal-marts? I was told that we would start them back up in September but I have not heard anything yet. Does anyone know anything about the demos?

Has anyone noticed that CROSSMARK auto-aasign system works in alphabetical order? If your last name starts with R S T W
you will not get many assignments. Another computer gliche.

This morning I was scheduled to do a Speedway candy reset. I precalled the store and told them I was coming. I looked at my schedule this afternoon they took it off of my page. So the manager is going to be mad he printed the planogram and the tags for nothing.

Shel7296, be sure to double check that with your supervisor. Sometimes, I have noticed that a few of my stores show up, and others dont, or, like you, they show up and then somehow they are deleted, when I want to report them as done. I reported it to my DM and she placed them back in for me to report.Sometimes its just another "computer glitch".

I've worked for part-time for Crossmark for a lot of years. Their recent change to the new method of assigning work is the craziest change they've made yet-and they've thown a lot of changes at reps over the years!

I used to have a set of stores that I called on near my home on a regular basis. I know that I am the only rep. who lives near these stores. However, with their new system, a full time rep. who lives much further away is being assigned all of "my" stores! I thought the whole point of the new system is to assign reps who live nearest to certain stores. Makes me so mad!

You would think that Crossmark would want more part-time reps vs. full-time because they don't have to pay us benefits, etc. I wonder how many part-timers have become so frustrated with the new system that they've quit for lack of projects.

I'm wondering if anyone has begun to work for Crossmark's new demo teams at Walmart?

Anyone know what type demos this will be? Full time? Company car? The ladies who wear hair nets and hand out samples of food on the weekends?

Crossmark is so bad about letting reps know what is going on.

There have not been any Crossmark demos in Walmart since April, around my area anyways. My understanding is that in January of 2009 they will be back in the Walmarts. I wonder if all the other agencies will be locked out again. I was locked out from January to April because I did not work for Crossmark at the time. I did fill out an application but have not heard anything.

There was a very detailed e-mail sent to all Crossmark employees about the new Demo Program. Crossmark and one other company will be conducting Demos in Walmart. The other company is not mentioned by name. Crossmark will begin in Jan. with 500 stores and another 500 to be added by March.

The Crossmark Event Team will be a dedicated team and if anyone is interested they can call Glen Walter at 479-464-1013 regarding opportunity of work.

Has anyone started the new program to go into Sams' Clubs to do the floral(fresh) department on a daily basis for an hour??? Saw this in NARMS, and an ad in the local paper. Just curious as to how it's going.
