Used to be bearable, Now just horrible
Leadership Team Member (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVAugust 18, 2016
A typical day at work is giving your all and management not doing anything, ESPECIALLY TOP MANAGEMENT. No support at all and that's when certain leaders decide to show up! Good employees are looked down upon when pointing out issues with the stores/company and if you reach out to higher ups that are not in your store, you can guarantee your name is at the top of the "hit list". Instead of fixing issues management, even P&O, does whatever they can to sweep the problem under the rug, even if that means getting rid of you. Good managers there are afraid to speak up about issues because they fear for their jobs.
The retail side of this company is untrustworthy and should NOT be considered for employment.
Associates on the floor just get looked at for mistakes.
The amount of BS you endure at this job for the amount of pay is NOT WORTH IT.
STAY AWAY FROM MARS RETAIL!! For your own health and sanity!
Pros
30% discount
Cons
Management, lack of support, pay doesnt match responsibilities or experience

Mars Retail, M&M's World Stores are a HORRIBLE PLACE to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NevadaJuly 23, 2016
Mar's as a company may be a good place to work on the whole,
But the Retail division is totally disfunctional and a horrible place to work.
Management is primarily through intimidation and dictation. The Bosses are Bullies! People are treated as drones and not appreciated. Talent is ignored and not rewarded
The management, from the Corporate Office in New Jersey all the way down to the store level gives lip service to the principals of the company but do not uphold or live those principals.
There is no opportunity for advancement. Mar's prefers to recruit from outside the company rather than promote valuable talented people from the inside.
Mar's is a private company and thereby writes their own rules.
I would NOT recommend Mar's Retail as a place to work at ANY level.
Pros
Fun colorful environment, free chocolate
Cons
Horrible management and terrible shifts

A Great Place To Work
Information Delivery (Current Employee) –  Franklin, TNJuly 11, 2016
Overall it is a great place to work. Sometimes it can get demanding, but I suppose that can occur anywhere you work. I would recommend anyone to go and work for Mars. You can bring your dog to work with you. Fitness center in the building.
Pros
Bring your dog to work, Fitness Center, good benefits, work-life balance.
Cons
Sometimes things are chaotic, too much demand, very fast paced, sometimes unrealistic expectations

productive place to work
Cashier/Bakery (Current Employee) –  Reisterstown, MDJune 2, 2016
I think mars is a good place to work I like working with the people.
Its a safe place where everyone can get along. The managers are good people they help us when needed. The hardest part is the long day some days can be very long. A typical day is everyone working together as a team to get a good days work in the store done and completed.
Pros
easy going people
Cons
Not a lot of benifits

Horrible
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Albany, GAJune 2, 2016
This company has NO respect for its employees! They work you however they want for how long they want to. You don't know when your next off day will be. No structure, no communication between workers and managers. Pay isn't all that great for the bs you deal with on a daily basis. Combos division is THE WORST. If you are offered a job within combos you are selling your soul!! Do not do it. Heard other divisions are great when it pertains to schedules and pay, but combos...NO NO AND NO!!!
Pros
None!
Cons
Everything

Family owned multinational
Director (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 9, 2016
Large global private company. Good employee focus. Strong training programs. Being a family owned company has its Pros (freedom to treat employees well vs. giving into investor pressure) and Cons (can sometimes be too slow to change).
Pros
Treat employees well
Cons
Slow to change

Manager (Current Employee) –  Hackettstown, NJFebruary 24, 2016
Open office environment. People are expected to work hard and get results in an engaging atmosphere. Hardest part of the job is managing expectations and most enjoyable part of the job is the people connections.
