Cashier, Sandwich maker, and Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Gainesville, Virginia – January 27, 2015
My day would start between ten and noon I would either chop fruit and vegetables or stock shelves with hams and turkeys after they have been glazed. During lunch customers would come in and buy lunch witch mostly consisted of sandwiches, I would either make the sandwiches or take orders from the cash register then bring the food to the customers. At the end of the day we would clean the store by moping, sweeping, and removing trash. The store would close around six at night.
Honey Baked Ham has to be one of my favorite jobs I've had yet! My coworkers and manager have been very nice and have assisted me whenever I needed help. It tends to get very busy around lunch time and gets stressful. As long as you can keep your composure while working, it is an overall great place to work.
Holiday season earning and assisting customers with their holiday planning.

A typical day at work is waiting until near 11 AM for the lunch orders to begin coming in. It'll be steady busy until almost 1 PM and then slows down quickly. At 1 o'clock we begin restocking what ever set-ups were lessened during lunch. We restock those and are gone by 2 PM. During the holidays we are busier throughout the day and within the week of a holiday we are busy from open until close. I learned how to take orders for reservations over the phone. The management is really laid back UNTIL the week of a holiday then they become a little more tense. It's a small shop and during the holidays there are A LOT more employees around. From a staff of 5 regularly to a staff of twenty during the holidays. The hardest part of the job is manuvering in small spaces with a lot of employees and customers in the store. The most enjoyable part of the job is being an essential component of the customers happy holidays.
Most customers are happy and excited when they pick up their orders.
There can be some confinement issues regarding space in the store during the holidays.

Manager (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – November 2, 2017
This is a Franchise location.It was a fun place to work during the off season. But at the Holidays as a manager I worked 78 hrs. a week.I was required to work open to close for a month and a half during the holiday season. It was very stressful. I was unable to employ sufficient employees to fill positions to run store.
I love Working at Honeybake ham.I be so EXCITED waking up and going into work.

Cashier/Sales Associate/Sandwich Line (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 31, 2017
This place was a wreck when I worked here. Coworkers were disrespectful, managers were unorganized, and the over-all workspace was a mess a majority of the time. If you're looking to work here, be prepared for the unexpected.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Watchung, NJ – October 31, 2017
During holiday times this company could be super chaotic and a super fun place to work all at the same time but under all conditions you must be a people's person with the willingness to help others and lots of patience.
Associate (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – October 30, 2017
at the beginning it was great! The boss was awesome. then after she left the team went down hill. mainly cause of poor management. i was told from my first Manager there that, "team work makes the dream work". and i really valued that. but until she left and we had a new manager it didn't even seen that; that was still apart.
Manager (Former Employee) – Parker, CO – October 20, 2017
Management is awful. I would only recommend this job if you work part time at the holidays for some extra cash. The best part of the job are the customers. It's very rewarding to provide service to those who greatly appreciate your assistance.
sampler (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – October 16, 2017
very very fast paced environment. especially during the holidays we would have 100s of people come to the store and purchase hams. it was so fun to work at and the people were always pleased with my free samples that i would give to them.
Food Prep/ BOH (Former Employee) – Buford, GA – October 15, 2017
I really enjoyed the environment and if your just trying to make a few extra dollars this would be the job. You are able to get discounts for the ham and turkeys, glazing is a fun job put have to have the willpower to stand for long periods of time.
