Great group of coworkers who believe in the greater good
Associate Research Fellow (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – October 31, 2017
Like many corporations there are pluses and minuses regarding working there. I was fortunate enough to work with a great group of caring people who really love and believe in the mission of Burt's Bees. The work was hard, fast paced and yes at times extremely stressful but we always met our deadlines and celebrated our accomplishments as a team.
Receptionist/Customer service (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – August 15, 2017
come in the morning make sure everything is set up for the morning meetings. Go to my desk make sure paper work is done for the day answering phone calls and attending to people at the same time. at the end of the day make sure all mail and packages are put away
A typical day was getting our assignment for the day. On some days we pack product. There are other days where I inspected product and stack product on pallets. The hardest part was not knowing if you was going to work a whole shift or not work at the next day. The co workers was great and even the supervisor was great.
Coworkers and supervisor was great to work with.
Standing for long periods and hours were unpredictable.
housekeeping (Former Employee) – morrisville nc – July 16, 2015
i worked from 7-3 i have learned more about the house keeping and what its really all about me and my supervisor was the only team members and that turned out to be a bad experience for me. walking around the ware house with the still toes shoes was the hard part for me breaks to meet and greet with other workers of the company6
If you are a worker bee, it's very chaotic. Plans change constantly and you must just deal with it. This is not a career, just a start in manufacturing. Absolutely no career growth as promised when you start. Wouldn't recommend to anyone unless you are unemployed. I know, current employee.
Kiosk sale associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 30, 2015
While at Burt's bees kiosk I was a key holder. I would open and close register, maintain a organized workplace, and help customers with product knowledge as well as purchases. While at there one time seasonal stand we had a great responsible team that worked together to ensure a great experience for customers as well as the company. I enjoyed the products the best working with and teaching people about herbs was a passion. I learned the importance of working together and doing my part in the work place to be sure everything would run smoothly,
Customer Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – March 26, 2015
Working at Burts was a great opportunity for me. The work was difficult but the people made it no so stressed. I enjoyed all my coworkers. The most enjoyable thing about my job was meeting such wonderful people and the culture of the business
This job was okay when I started, but things started to change. New management showed up and hounded the workers. I received little help when needed and nobody did anything about it. Work you to death, go home come back, do it again.
Fill tech (Current Employee) – Durham NC – October 23, 2014
There's definitely a lack of systems in place for training on all levels. It's a very chaotic unorganized experience from the beginning. It is a decent place to start your manufacturing career but if you have ever worked at a top mfg facility you will be very disappointed. I do not recommend this place for the long term. There is a lot of tension between groups on the floor.
4 day weeks
Health benefits, pay. Not a very team oriented atmosphere despite their best intentions
Process Technician (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – August 30, 2014
Really focused and committed to falling in-line with FDA compliance and recycling efforts, The company is really big on natural made products and combining that with consumer goods to produce the best of both worlds.
All natural products with no real life long side effect.
Service Desk Manager (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – January 6, 2014
I came to Burt's in 2010 as a contractor and was able to be promoted to Service desk Manager in a short time. The people truly believe in giving back to the community through several organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Durham Food Bank, and SEEDS and I'm happy to be apart of the culture.
