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 – more... 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. – less
Fast paced and fun to work at, explore creative ideas
Supervisor (Current Employee), Moorestown, NJ – March 3, 2014
Pros: free samples
Cons: no breaks
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 – more... 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. – less
Packing (Former Employee), Dunmore, PA – January 31, 2014
Pros: nice workers, nice management, and all you can eat chocolate.
Cons: the pace is sometimes overwhelming for a single employee.
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 – more... part of the job was interacting with the workers and all the chocolate you can eat. – less
