Merchandising (Current Employee) – Crossmark Australia – 30 January 2018
A usual day would be doing planograms in various shops and setting up point of sales and working with store staff I learned that I can get a lot done Hardest part of the Job is the travelling from one centre to the next, trying to organise the jobs so I can get most done but still finish in time for my children most enjoyed meeting new people
Casual Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 9 February 2018
Be careful how you put down your availabilities as they will fill every working hour and then some with jobs with no consideration taken for travel times or personal break times. The time frames allocated are very tight and are supposed to include time to report, be prepared to spend half your evening doing those reports. Jobs rarely fit within the time they allocated.
Fellow team members were lovely, I had no issues with anyone I worked with while I was there. I loved meeting new people and working in different environments but spending around 2 hours travelling per day and getting assigned long hours were a killer.
Planogrammer (Current Employee) – Everywhere – 20 January 2018
Able to work hours you want and when you want. Form friendships with customers that you regularly see. Team leader and manager are very supportive. Physically demanding as a lot of lifting and sometimes there is a lot of work and other times there is nothing.
Co ordinator (Former Employee) – St Leonards NSW – 4 April 2017
Role has potential but induction training months after starting says it is not a focus. Training for new staff is without any accompanying documents for reference and Mgr clearly does not enjoy this aspect of her job. No real accountability for staff who don't measure up or are not punctual. Work is left for others to pick up the slack. No back office tasks when phones or email traffic is low-suggestions to improve this ignored. Actual role is simple and can be very rewarding. Work tools old and no interest in improving this. Also no interest in giving staff an appreciation of the actual tasks they will be dealing with on the phones.
Generous employee extras, social activities
Low salary, manager not interested in ways to make roles more efficient, start times VERY loose depending upon who you are
Client Coordinator (Former Employee) – St Leonards NSW – 3 April 2017
Great culture in the Sydney office, lots of events, Friday night drinks etc. Good opportunities for advancement as there are always new clients coming on board. Clients can be demanding though, and set tough deadlines, I am given a lot of autonomy to decide on my own approach.
Talent Aquisition (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 3 April 2017
I have nearly worked at Crossmark for 4 years now, and i can say that every day i really do enjoy coming to work! I work in a fantastic team here in the head office - We mostly all have been long term employees which says alot! - we bounce off each other and have a brilliant working environment which is great especially as our work is very fast paced. In the office everyone is really friendly and has a laid back atmosphere. We have alot of social events which is a extra added bonus! The last 4 years have flown by! Love my job!
Planogram Rep (Current Employee) – Perth WA – 20 March 2017
the company has a great work/life balance, but for someone that has worked in FMCG Industry 6+ yrs back, i feel they should have a better buddy system for New People or People that just need a new brush up on skills. most are just chucked into the Planograms and with a quick speel on how to use there computer programme and after that its, Sink or Swim.....for most. After that...... Management & Staff are pushed to complete work/planograms in very small time frames and are always having to be time blown out....
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 10 November 2016
No support from company particularly if new to job. No understanding and double standards as it suits. Disappointing . The job itself can be good but dealing with this Company that does not support its Merchandisers puts this company in disrepute. Shameful treatment.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Brisbane West QLD – 7 October 2016
Working with Crossmark is great. I enjoythe flexibility of the job and being able to manage it on my own.
Management is fantastic and always willing to help out where they can. I work with a small team which is easy to manage.
The only negatives I have to mention are that there is no advancing within the company and the job is very casual. During the Christmas peroid there is not much work at all which makes it quite difficult.
Overall I enjoy working for Crossmark and would recommened this job to parents, or someone just looking for a casual job and not to much stress in life and take each day as it comes.
Flexible, manage your own time, perfect for anyone with kids
Given responsibility and accountability to succeed
Executive (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 28 September 2016
I'm empowered to make decisions using the resources around me. The company is big enough to really effect the market and small enough that I can make an impact and cause positive change through self-created initiatives.
I really enjoyed my position. I worked alone but still part of a team. I found the work challenging and was able to use my creative skills. I enjoyed working with the staff in my store and if I ever had a problem I couldn't fix my supervisor was only a phone call away.
Co-workers, staff and management are friendly, approachable.

company situated in America so hard to contact supervisors, pay clerks etc
N/A (Current Employee) – Head Office – 17 September 2015
Crossmark provides the presumption it has a vibrant culture however it's overshadowed by political agendas and managers who have been in their roles to long. You aren't provided with the training you need nor the tools you require. I wouldn't waste my career working here
merchandiser (Current Employee) – Sydney – 20 July 2015
Travel time not paid.. Also your klms are googled and even if you go back to stores they only cover klms for one call. Ninety per cent of the Point of Sale material is delivered to your home, it becomes a warehouse. .
