Sales Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ithaca, NY 14850 – July 6, 2016
I learned much about customer service and store management. My coworkers were friendly and helpful. A typical day at work involved manning the cash register and managing the product, cleaning the store, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the experience and knowledge all while giving people good service. The hardest part of the job was managing a whole store on your own from time to time.
Discounts on store products, discounts on other store products
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – March 30, 2016
As a sales associate at Gertrude Hawk Chocolates I get to talk to people each shift as I help them find items or check out when they are ready to purchase. Getting experience in dealing with people is rewarding and allows me to work on my people skills. Management at my particular store is excellent and will work with each employee on creating a schedule that is flexible for them based around their home and family life or school hours.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Dunmore, PA – June 28, 2016
very family oriented enviorment but the building is to small for a smooth operation to meet deadlines so there is much much overtime that can conflict between work an life especially family life but then it has its moments in the year where it isnt that busy an you will have the time tho take care of whatever you wanted to do with yourself or your family
building is to small for a smooth operation that can meet deadlines
Production assistant (Former Employee) – Scranton, PA – December 17, 2015
This is the worst job I've ever had. You stand in the sake spot for 12 hour and you are not allowed to leave that spot you have to watch candy all day long and you're not allowed to sit. Management sucks even if there is no water or electric they will still make you stay there and pick up cigarette butts in the parking lot for 12 hours.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Dewitt, NY – July 24, 2015
Employees dip and design apples, strawberries, pretzels, rice crispies, marshmallows, etc. Stocking/restocking. It's the only outlet store in NYS, so we have people come from all over for the great selection/buys. Visually colorful and inviting! Is also the largest store in NYS due to 1/2 the store being as the others: retail and the other 1/2 outlet overruns/seconds. Easy "uniform": all black or black and white: aprons supplied. Great location: main road, free parking.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Dunmore, PA – April 26, 2015
I learned nothing at this place it was not a great place to work and management and employees alike are not nice. They do not pay you just wages and the hardest part of the job is complying with the bell conditioning for lunch and break. you do not even get a full 15 min or 30 min lunch
Fast paced and fun to work at, explore creative ideas
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Moorestown, NJ – March 3, 2014
Gertrude is a fun place to work at. From the moment you open to when you close the store, you are making candies and other edibles. I learned how to become even more creative since working with the company, and the best part is that Management wants you too. Co-workers are always fun to be around, it truly is a place where you can be a kid in a candy store. There is down falls to the job, such as, lifting heavy items, dealing with unpleasant customers and the like. However, you run into those customers no matter where you go. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing people smile and laugh at the things we make.
Packing (Former Employee) – Dunmore, PA – January 31, 2014
A typical day at work was being moved to whatever department wanted more workers. I learned how to make specialty chocolates and packing ar a quick pace. The management were nice and easy to get along with. The coworkers were as easy to get along with as the management. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the pace sometimes. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the workers and all the chocolate you can eat.
Nice workers, nice management, and all you can eat chocolate.
The pace is sometimes overwhelming for a single employee.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – August 19, 2014
I usually opened the store by opening the register, creating merchandise displays, and creating fresh chocolate treats for the day. Sometimes I closed the store, which was tracking the sales for the day, creating bank deposits, and re-stocking merchandise displays. Our crew listened to music and laughed with the customers. We gushed over how delicious it was and how much we loved making all the treats. There were even competitions with other locations.The hardest part being on your feet all day, but at least I got to hear good music.
